What Happens To Wanda at The End of Doctor Strange 2

[SPOILER ALERT] This article contains Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness major spoilers.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is finally released in theatres. The latest Marvel movie is a complete package of adventure, thrill, horror and course Magic! The multiverse of Madness not only connected multiple universes but also character cameos from other Marvel superhero film franchises.

The Multiverse of Madness is all about three characters that dominated the whole Marvel movie which are Sorcerer Doctor Strange, Wanda Maximoff and Marvel’s new character America Chavez.

We are well aware that Doctor Strange and Wanda fought together against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame but Multiverse of Madness is a whole different concept where both these magic yielders will be facing each other in the entire movie.

To understand the ending, we’ll be looking at the brief events that lead to the consequence we get at the end of the movie.

In the third part of the Multiverse of Madness, Doctor Strange along with America Chavez and Christine Palmer (Earth-838’s version) were in search of the Book of Vishanti, an incredibly magical and powerful book that has the power to gift sorcerers whatever abilities, spells, that they seek. This is the same book that was shown in the movie’s opening scene where Defender Strange and Chavez were attempting to defeat Gargantos ( a creature who was trying to kill Chavez).

As Darkhold had consumed Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, it seems that the Book of Vishanti is the only way that can stop her from destroying the world apart. Just when they were about to reach the Book of Vishanti, Scarlet Witch catches up with them. She destroys the Book of Vishanti, captures Chavez, and sends Doctor Strange and Christine into a different dimension. Now, all’s left is to steal Chavez’s multiverse-traversing powers, track down her kids Billy and Tommy in an alternate universe, and be reunited with them forever.

Is Wanda Dead?

At the end of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is Wanda’s sacrifice that resulted in her death, as Stephen Strange admits that the Scarlet Witch was “gone”. However, we don’t know for sure if Scarlet Witch really is gone or not as the film takes a quick cut and moves on, focusing on Strange and Wong’s attempts to rebuild Kamar-Taj, with America Chavez joining them.

As the movie hasn’t shown Wanda die on-screen, there is a strong possibility that she will reappear down the line. After all, why would Marvel Studios kill off one of the Avengers and their most powerful magic wielder on the entire planet?

Nevertheless, Wanda’s fate is still not decided at the moment and it could remain that way for some time. All we can hope is that Elizabeth Olsen returns to the MCU in the near future and clear the doubts that were left by the Multiverse of Madness.
