The Infinity saga had left behind too many questions and open-ended arcs for writers and producers to navigate. And with each of those open-endings, series were individually made that could navigate somewhat freely the lives and trauma of characters who survived the catastrophe of Endgame. Wanda Maximoff was one of those characters who lived to tell the story, but as all Marvel aficionados know by now — to what end? The havoc that was unleashed by Wanda in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame brought the extent of power and strength of the hero/villain to the forefront. Moreover, the beloved anti-hero Loki got his own series too and the audience was introduced to his female variant, Sylvie. With timelines clashing and collapsing, it seems Loki star, Sophia Di Martino is vying for a future MCU team-up with the other powerful female of the universe, Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff.
Implications of the Multiverse
The two Phase 4 Disney+ series, Loki and WandaVision were not just made to explore and portray the lives of the heroes who sacrificed so much in fighting against Thanos’ personal vendetta. The stories were an attempt at realistically navigating issues of trauma, PTSD, and grief. However, the two series also introduced a major subject that is crucial to the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — multiverse.
The studio has already released three major movies since the beginning of Phase 4 — Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. Each of these movies was centered around the concept of the multiverse itself.
With all of these new changes happening, it should not be a stretch to see Sophia Di Martino’s claim come true. If the multiverse clashes once again, we might well see variants of Wanda and Sylvie team up on-screen soon enough.
Sylvie and Wanda’s Future MCU Team-Up
The Loki star, Sophia Di Martino has recently commented in response to a question about which superhero Sylvie would like to team up in the future with. The actor replied, “People seem to want to see her with Wanda and I think that would be pretty cool as well. Sylvie and Wanda. Could go either way.”
Sophia Di Martino from ‘LOKI’ says she’d like for Sylvie and the #ScarletWitch to meet in the MCU and that she’d like to work with Elizabeth Olsen.

Marvel is famous for its character crossovers in movies and series. It would not come as a shock entirely if such a team-up indeed takes place. With Sylvie’s powers focusing on enchantment and illusion, and Wanda’s centering around telekinesis and neurological manipulation, it is going to be a team-up of a lifetime. However, as Di Martino suggests, it could go either way, in which case, a battle between the super-powered two would be equally riveting to watch.
