Press: Scarlet Witch Could Defeat Thanos One-on-One, Says Kevin Feige

 

SCREENRANT – Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige thinks Thanos would have been in trouble without his army in Avengers: Endgame, confirming that Scarlet Witch would have defeated him in a one-on-one battle. In the MCU, Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen, who made her Marvel debut with Captain America: The Winter Solider. In that film, she shows up in a mid-credits scene where she’s held captive by Baron Strucker. Scarlet Witch then appears with her brother, Quicksilver, in Avengers: Age of Ultron, though her brother ultimately dies saving Hawkeye and a child. Scarlet Witch has since fought with the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

At Comic-Con 2019, Marvel discussed Scarlet Witch’s future role in the MCU and on the small screen. She’ll first appear in WandaVision, a TV series for Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service. WandaVision will debut spring of 2021 and feature both Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision. However, it’s unclear how Vision will be brought back, as he died in Avengers: Infinity War. Immediately following WandaVision, Scarlet Witch will feature in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has a May 7, 2021 release date. Marvel Studios also confirmed that her storyline in the second Doctor Strange will connect to the events of WandaVision.

In an interview with Comic Book (via CBR), Feige shared his belief that Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos on her own in Avengers: Endgame. Speaking of her abilities, he said, “Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power – I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done.” Feige also talked about Scarlet Witch’s role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, explaining, “…her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.” Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange are two of the most powerful characters in the MCU, so Feige’s comments clarify why a partnership between the two makes sense.

In the comics, Scarlet Witch receives her powers when she’s born a mutant with superhuman abilities. Her character debuted in The X-Men #4 during the Silver Age of Comic Books. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are originally villains, similar to the way the siblings first sided with Ultron in the films. Scarlet Witch first has general hex powers but slowly becomes more powerful as her story goes on. She eventually gains the power to cause specific events and manipulate magic. In the comics, Scarlet Witch is the only one who scares the powerful Phoenix Five.

Feige’s declaration that Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos in Avengers: Endgame may seem bold but makes complete sense given her powers. Though they haven’t been shown as much on-screen as in the comics, she’s still a powerful being in the MCU. While most of the original Avengers and supporting characters have one major skill, Scarlet Witch’s powers are broader and thus more inline with the powers of Thanos. Plus, with Thanos responsible for Vision’s death, Scarlet Witch had a more personal reason to take the villain down than some other Avengers. Given Feige’s comments, Thanos made the right decision calling for backup rather than facing Scarlet Witch alone.

Press: Could Marvel’s ‘WandaVision’ Adapt a Fan Favorite Comic?

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERElizabeth Olsen’s Disney+ series could be primed to take on ‘House of M,’ the 2005 event story in which Scarlet Witch remade reality following a personal tragedy.

Scarlet Witch, one of comics’ most powerful and complex characters, is arguably the most underserved Avenger in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. WandaVision, Marvel Studios’ upcoming streaming series for Disney+, aims to change all that.

The mutant offspring of Magneto in the comics, an “enhanced” member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the MCU, Wanda Maximoff is an exceptionally complicated, broken-not-sprained character in any medium. No better was this explored than in one of Marvel’s greatest stories, the game-changing and tragic House of M, a 2005 event comic from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Olivier Coipel in which Wanda reshaped all of reality after the loss of her children. In her new world, mutants reigned supreme, while normal humans were second-class citizens.

Now that the X-Men are back under Marvel Studios’ roof, Wanda and the MCU seem primed to mine some of the rich drama that the House of M built. In doing so, the Disney+ show — which, when first announced, was met with puzzlement bordering on indifference by fandom — could become as important to Marvel’s live-action future as M was to its comic legacy.

“We’re going to have a lot of fun. We’re gonna get weird, get deep and finally understand Wanda Maximoff as Scarlet Witch.” That was the edict revealed from the stage of Marvel’s Hall H panel when Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced the overall narrative strategy behind the upcoming WandaVision series, slated for release Spring 2021 on Disney+ and set to spill into the horror-tinged Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, opening May 7, 2021 and also to feature Olsen’s Wanda.

WandaVision, set after Avengers: Endgame, aims to explore the fallout Vision’s death has on Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen). The best, and most readily available, way to deliver on that is to tell the House of M story through the MCU’s lens.

Press: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness Officially Announced; Will Also Star Elizabeth Olsen

COMIC BOOK – In addition to her own Disney+ series, the Scarlet Witch Elizabeth Olsen has also been confirmed to co-star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is arguably one of the coolest film titles ever given in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Benedict Cumberbatch will, of course, return as the Sorcerer Supreme and the film has also been rumored to feature the return of Benedict Wong as Wong, although he wasn’t formally announced during tonight’s presentation.

While the film is still in the pre-production phase as it won’t debut until May 7, 2021, director Scott Derrickson did share a chilling tease, “We are going to make the first scary MCU film,” although Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did jokingly respond with “It’s gonna be PG-13 and you’re going to like it!”

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

Feige introduced the second film in the “Doctor Strange” franchise, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and called the director, Scott Derrickson, and star Benedict Cumberbatch to the stage to a rousing welcome.

In a surprise twist, Feige brought out Elizabeth Olsen, who also stars in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and they talked about how “WandaVision”—the Disney+ series that Olsen will star in as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch—connects directly to the feature-film storyline.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” hits theaters on May 7, 2021.
