Doctor Strange sequel, titled Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness, gave Wanda’s character a new getup as the story’s primary antagonist, where she fully realized her Scarlet Witch persona. This was a totally different path, for her going on self-discovery and grief in Wanda Vision.
Opening of the Doctor Strange 2 movie
The movie portrayed an epic opening battle between Gargantos and Doctor Strange. Wanda revealed that she was the one who had sent the giant octopus while she was trying to take America Chavez’s powers for herself. Later, the fans learned that this was not how Wanda was set to introduce her first appearance on the big screen.
After a couple of weeks, it got revealed that Marvel removed a scene from the movie that would have shown Wanda taking out Chiwetel Ejjofor’s Earth-616 version of Baron Mordo. Now, behind-the-scenes images reveal how the battle would have gone.
Wanda vs. Mordo deleted scene
The latest episode of Doctor Strange featured Scarlet Witch and Earth-616 Baron Mordo from Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, which got deleted.
Wanda is seen in the same field, as she is shown at the end of the movie, while Baron Mordo approaches her.
As Baron Mordo approaches her, Wanda’s hands light up with her red magic as she prepares to take out Baron Mordo, with the sun setting in the background.
Director Sam Raimi says that Wanda would present Baron Mordo’s head to Doctor Strange, and that would be the sequel’s first scene.
Wanda on becoming the Scarlet Witch
If the deleted scene would be present in the final cut, it would not take twenty minutes for Wanda to become the villain of the movie. She would have been the classic Scarlet Witch right away.
Fans became curious to see what would happen to Baron Mardo, who was last seen hunting down the world’s sorcerers. The deleted scene would have caught up with the fans on the story and also would have shown that Wanda only meant business.
The scene was also teased on one of Doctor Strange 2‘s posters. With this scene being cut off from the movie there are certainly some questions on whether Baron Mordo will return back or not in later films. Fans can’t help but wonder what would have happened if Wanda got her final showdown.
