The Illuminati fight against Wanda from Doctor Strange 2 is one of the most talked-about scenes. The scene introduced some of the most-awaited characters in MCU but not for too long before Wanda killed them so brutally. For Marvel Studios, which tries to stay under PG-13 guidelines, the scene was a little too brutal. Recently, Elizabeth Olsen talked about that scene and said that Scarlet Witch wasn’t using her full powers while she defeated the Illuminati.
No matter how hard anyone finds it to believe, she even felt bad killing Captain Carter.
Doctor Strange 2 writer shares Wanda was hurt while killing Captain Carter
In an audio commentary on the digital release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the makers revealed that Wanda had an emotional moment while she was killing the Illuminati. The director, Sam Raimi talked about the scene where Wanda Maximoff fights against Captain Carter and Monica Rambeau’s Captain Marvel.
He said, “This scene pays tribute to female heroes and villains. [Wanda’s] the embodiment of both, so it’s really appropriate for this moment.” Further explaining the scene, Co-Producer, Richie Palmer and Head Writer, Michael Waldron, talked about how it was an emotional moment for Wanda when she killed Captain Carter, after knowing how Steve Rogers felt about his Peggy.
Michael Waldron said, “I have to imagine that moment hurts Wanda. She was so close to Steve. She would have known Peggy, known of her.” Richie Palmer added to it, “I think both of these characters, this is, you know, Monica Rambeau’s mother, who she knew from WandaVision…”
Wanda’s future in the MCU
Though, in Doctor Strange 2, Wanda or the Scarlet Witch became a worse villain than we could’ve ever imagined. In the end, she was redeemed, though her redemption seemed quite simple. She is shown to destroy the Darkhold in every universe saying that it won’t be able to tempt anyone in the future. And then she destroys the said temple on Mount Wungadore, where the spells were originally written by Chthon.
Though in the scene, it seemed that Wanda might have killed herself along with destroying the temple, but there was a red spark that everyone noticed and it could mean that she is alive. Though, there’s no confirmation of the same but there were hints that this isn’t the end of the story of Wanda Maximoff in MCU.
