Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness wasn't quite the crazy trip through the Multiverse some fans anticipated. However, had all those rumours not set expectations a little too high, then we're sure The Illuminati would have been enough to leave jaws on the floor.
The Scarlet Witch's story arc has been a big talking point too, especially as the Avenger ended up heading down a villainous route in an effort to resurrect her children.
Currently believed dead, it's unclear what the future holds in store for Wanda Maximoff. She's bound to return somewhere down the line, though some newly revealed photos from the Doctor Strange sequel showcase never-before-seen shots of Elizabeth Olsen suited up. That costume is awesome.
During a recent interview, the actress appeared to cast doubt on her MCU future by making it clear she wants to do more than play the iconic comic book character.
"Specifically in the last four years, my output has been Marvel," Olsen said. "I don’t want...it’s not that I don’t want to be associated as just this character. But I really feel like I need to be building other parts back up for balance. I so much want to do films right now. And I hope some of them come together in the way I feel like they can."
"But yeah, that’s something that I need. I just need other characters in my life," she added. "There’s no longevity in one character."
We anticipate Wanda being part of the Multiverse Saga, even if it's just in one or both of the next two Avengers movies. Beyond that, though, we'd guess Olsen's time as the Scarlet Witch is sadly in the process of winding down!
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Marvel Cinematic Universe unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. We'll journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.
The movie's cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stühlbarg, and Rachel McAdams.
The film is directed by Sam Raimi, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Loki Head Writer Michael Waldron.
