DOCTOR STRANGE Sequel Reportedly Cut A Disturbing Origin Story For Earth-838 Scarlet Witch Variant

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness featured Wanda Maximoff's Earth-838 counterpart, and a new rumour claims to shed some light on cut scenes exploring this Scarlet Witch's twisted origin story...

In multiple interviews, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star Elizabeth Olsen has expressed interest in exploring what led to Earth-838's Scarlet Witch seemingly being a single parent. She's also hinted that this Wanda isn't quite as powerful as her MCU counterpart, but is this why?

Movie Scope has shared what they claim are details on key scenes from the Doctor Strange sequel revealing a twisted origin story for Earth-838 Wanda that ended up being cut. We're taking this with a pinch of salt, though the story was Retweeted by reliable leaker MyTimeToShineHello.

It's said The Illuminati was once set to be portrayed in a more antagonistic light, and when that world's Doctor Strange tapped into the Darkhold, we would have learned about the Scarlet Witch prophecy. Taking his findings to his teammates, the decision would have been made to lobotomise Wanda to prevent her from ever becoming a being powerful enough to destroy their reality.

Professor X would have been responsible for taking away (or, we presume, dialling down) Wanda's powers, thereby resulting in her being more mom than superhero. Charles was also set to consult with her father, Magneto, and this is reportedly where Michael Fassbender's cameo came in. Supposedly, a villainous Illuminati didn't test well and was too much of a diversion, hence why it was cut.

It definitely sounds like something that could have once been in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but it does seem superfluous to the story. As for that Fassbender appearance, we've heard that Marvel Studios shot the unused cameos with stand-ins, so the actor was likely never on set. 

Do you wish this Scarlet Witch subplot had made the cut?
