Elizabeth Olsen wants redemption for the Scarlet Witch

There’s been no confirmation that Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch will reappear in the MCU after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (although Olsen hinted at it), but if she does, Olsen has some thoughts on where she could go.

In a recent ScreenRant interview, Olsen said, “we can do anything with her now!”

“I feel like we’ve done so much,” she continued. “Now we can really have fun; I feel like there’s a lot more humor to be had with her. She’s often the feel of a story, and I’m curious to see what we can explore. And hopefully (can vi) give her a redemption.”

Of course, (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness spoiler alert)those who saw last year’s Doctor Strange sequel saw Wanda crushed under Mount Wundagore, but not without a tiny bit of red energy remaining, suggesting that it might not be the last of her just yet.

Olsen explored these theories further in a recent interview with Deadline. When asked if she could return to the upcoming Disney+ series Agatha: Coven of Chaos, she replied, “I never know how to answer those questions, except I don’t…”

“I think I’ll be back,” she said after a pause.

There’s also a chance Olsen could return in another reported WandaVision spinoff, Vision Quest.
