With Marvel Studios cooking up some huge plans for Scarlet Witch, there has been speculations as to the future of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One fan theory suggests that Scarlet Witch could be a major threat in the “Doctor Strange” sequel.

Marvel Studios revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con 2018 that something big is in store for Scarlet Witch. The studio has yet to reveal those plans, but it has been confirmed that Wanda Maximoff will go by the superhero moniker in both a new TV series and a movie.

Scarlet Witch will first appear in the Disney+ show “WandaVision,” where she will reunite with her dead synthetic boyfriend, Vision, in an eerie dream home. She will then join the Sorcerer Supreme in “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness,” an upcoming superhero film focusing on the continuing journeys of the titular character.

Since the nature of Scarlet Witch’s character in the comics has the tendency to be villainous, there has been an ongoing theory that she will blame the death of Vision on Doctor Strange. It can be recalled that Scarlet Witch had to murder Vision in “Avengers: Infinity War” to prevent Thanos from getting the Mind Stone, only for the Mad Titan to turn back time and rip the Infinity Stone from Vision’s head, killing him.

In the comics, Scarlet Witch is known for being an overpowered sorceress who is prone to shaping reality. There are several instances in the comics where she loses grip on reality and shapes the world in her image to the point of becoming a villain in the process.

While the role of Scarlet Witch in the future of the MCU remains to be seen, Marvel Studios has made it clear that she will have a major role moving forward. Because of that, the new fan theory suggesting that she could be a villain in the “Doctor Strange” sequel is highly likely.

As for “WandaVision,” fans can expect the series to be unlike anything else in the franchise. Aside from being heavily influenced by “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” co-stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany previously hinted that the events in the series will be totally unexpected.

“It’s definitely the oddest of all the Marvel endeavors so far,” said Bettany at the D23 Expo. “It’s super avant-garde and weird. I don’t think either of us could have expected to be going in this—if we were going to continue in this—and for it to continue in this direction. I’m so excited, the scripts are amazing. It’s going to be just great to drill down further into these things,” he added.

“Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” will hit theaters on May 7, 2021. “WandaVision” will also premiere in 2021.
