The MCU has been the epitome of great characters who won the hearts of people. One of them is Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch who became one of the prominent characters in the MCU.
The recent Marvel movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness brought back Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff in a completely different way. Sam Raimi directed sequel has the concept of alternate realities, which in its trailer gave the impression that Benedict Cumberbatch’s character Doctor Strange will team up with the Scarlet Witch to save the Multiverse from an unknown threat. However, the movie took an unexpected turn and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch turned out to be the antagonist of the movie.
As the Multiverse of Madness ended with the uncertain future of the Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen shared her ideas about Wanda’s next MCU stint.
A Different Scarlet Witch in future MCU!
Elizabeth Olsen in an interview revealed that she is willing to return as long as there is a“good story to tell.” She then went on to share the idea of playing an older and wiser version of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch by portraying Wanda “with like prosthetics and silver hair” in a future project.
“If there’s a good idea, I’m happy to play her. I also think her being old will be kind of amazing. In the comics, her power kind of deteriorates her and ages her in a way in some of the comics. I do think of that as being kind of amazing. I kind of imagined myself one day with like prosthetics and silver hair and like playing her as this like like older wise woman and so I do have this kind of this dream of ageing her quite a bit. I just really think she’s ancient in her like the myth of the Scarlet Witch is this ancient myth and so that’s something that I kind of adore about, a potential future that I’m just kind of throwing out and I don’t know where it would go.”
What could be the future of Elizabeth Olsen’s character?
Elizabeth Olsen’s idea of portraying her “older wise woman” could hint at her upcoming storyline.
Based on the sequel’s ending, it might be possible that the Scarlet Witch survives with her capabilities as she’s the strongest magic yielder but gets old due to the Darkhold as it comes with a price.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously mentioned in an interview that Wanda Maximoff’s story won’t end in the Multiverse of Madness saying, “that’s the first place where that story will continue but there will be other places.” Given Feige’s comments, it can be assumed that character will eventually return at some point in the MCU’s future.
