Wanda’s return to the MCU is the best news for her fans. Fans watched her turn into the best version of herself in Doctor Strange 2 and that made her the most powerful villain.

Wanda’s sacrifice was met with great speculation on the future of the character at the climax of Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness. The return of Scarlet Witch was cracked open at any moment.

On one side where fans of Wanda Maximoff are excited about her return, the fans of Captain Carter are in real panic and stress mode.

Captain Carter is a badass, and her fanbase is huge. The die-hard Peggy fans have always rooted for her since her first day of appearance.

Captain Carter is amazing but despite all that, she has run into a buzz saw of an opponent in a dream-walking Scarlet Witch.

In What If..? people would want more of Peggy but putting the fans of Wanda in the same position is a difficult thing to do again.

What If..? season 2 will be released in early 2023 on Disney+
