WandaVision Director Says There’s ‘a Lot More’ of Scarlet Witch’s Story to Come
WandaVision’s Matt Shakman has reaffirmed that Wanda Maximoff’s journey is far from over, with more of her story to be revealed in Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In an interview with TVLine, Shakman, who directed all nine episodes of WandaVision’s first season, explained how the upcoming finale aims to deliver a gratifying conclusion to Wanda’s storyline in the MCU sitcom whilst also not revealing every detail of her “very rich life,” as the character’s journey will continue in the Doctor Strange sequel, which started filming in November with Sam Raimi at the helm.
“We were trying to tell a complete story in terms of the narrative around Westview, N.J., and we hope that there’s some resolution to that story, and that it is satisfying and also surprising for the fans,” Shakman said. “But Wanda will continue into Doctor Strange [in the Multiverse of Madness], and there’s a lot more to her story to be told, so this is only one part of a very complicated and very rich life.”
With the finale of WandaVision looming, it’s becoming clear that the show is setting up a much bigger emphasis on the magical and supernatural sides of the MCU in Phase 4, which might also end up factoring into the multiverse. Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige previously indicated that the multiverse will be a running theme in the MCU, with connections present “before and after” Doctor Strange 2.
The events of WandaVision are expected to lead into Multiverse of Madness, and the plot of that movie will also connect to the new Spidey sequel, now officially titled Spider-Man: No Way Home. Scarlet Witch star Elizabeth Olsen is currently in London filming the Doctor Strange sequel alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange, as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Mordo and Benedict Wong’s Wong.
The Doctor Strange sequel is scheduled to be released on March 25, 2022, but there’s a lot of MCU to come before that. After the credits roll on the WandaVision finale, many will turn their attention to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, coming up on March 19. There’s also Black Widow, Loki, Shang-Chi, What If…?, Eternals, and the third Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland.
