MCU helmsman Kevin Feige has stated that the Scarlet Witch is not only the strongest Avenger but also the strongest character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This revelation comes almost a year after Feige stated that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel was, in fact, the strongest in the MCU which coincided with the release of her movie in mid-February.
However, the producer has now apparently had a change of heart as Wanda Maximoff, who is easily one of the most powerful Marvel characters in the comics with her reality-warping powers, prepares to make her first formal appearance as her superhero moniker Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision.
Feige was recently asked the question of who is currently the strongest MCU character post-Endgame, to which the producer responded that Wanda would have been able to kill Thanos single-handedly during the final battle of the movie had the Mad Titan not ordered the destruction of his entire fleet as a way of distracting her.
But since Scarlet Witch’s introduction way back in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Feige has always insisted that the character is the most powerful character, despite claims that Captain Marvel would be the new figurehead of the MCU going forward.
The only problem with that last statement is that Brie Larson has no confirmed appearances in Phase 4 of the MCU while Elizabeth Olsen has a Disney+ series that will lead immediately into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which Olsen will co-star in and is rumoured to “come into her own” as the Scarlet Witch.
WandaVision is expected to hit the streaming service in early 2021 with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness set to be released on May 7, 2021.
