How Will the Scarlet Witch Return to the MCU?
The last we saw of Wanda, she was buried under the rubble of her Wundagore Mountain palace at the end of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. After the mind-boggling events of the movie, it’s impossible to believe that Wanda is truly gone. The sheer power of Wanda Maximoff (and the Darkhold) makes the Scarlet Witch one of the most powerful creatures in the MCU, and it would be a shame to end her story here.
Thankfully, our gut instincts are correct—this is not the end of the line for our favorite troubled witch. According to rumors, Maximoff might possibly appear in the upcoming MCU Disney+ series Wonder Man, a comedy show focused on the supervillain-turned-superhero of the same name. Wonder Man will be directed by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Andrew Guest. One rumor claims that Wanda will be making an appearance in Wonder Man, while another suggests that the Scarlet Witch will appear in one of the MCU’s 2023 releases.
On our end, we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing Wanda meet Wonder Man in the MCU the same way they do in the comics. Comic fans will remember one very important storyline between Wanda and Simon Williams—their romance. In the comics, Wonder Man’s brainwaves were the blueprint for Vision to come to life. When Vision became White Vision, Wanda asked Wonder Man to help return Vision to his former self. Of course, Wonder Man had his own agenda and refused because he was developing his own feelings for Wanda. Then ensued a love triangle between all three superheroes.
If fans remember the events of WandaVision, then we know that White Vision is still out there somewhere, half the person Vision was before he “died.” With Wonder Man now entering the picture, it might just open the door for this particular comic storyline to make it in the MCU.
Either way, we’re just excited for the Scarlet Witch’s return. The next generation of avengers will need her to battle the multiversal evil brewing in the MCU.
