Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness unleashed the power of the Scarlet Witch on all reality, and Agatha Harkness' dire warnings about Wanda Maximoff's ability to tap into chaos magic proved to be no exaggeration. That was evident from the statue of the Avenger that had been created inside the Darkhold Castle, foretelling the Witch's eventual descent into villainy.
However, there was another statue there featuring her son, Billy Maximoff. Considering this character doesn't technically exist in the MCU (Earth-616) at this point, it's very interesting that his transformation into Wiccan was set to be teased in the Doctor Strange sequel.
While there had been rumours about Billy and Tommy being aged up courtesy of new actors, it appears Marvel Studios plans to wait for Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne to grow up a little before having them suit up as Speed and Wiccan. Who knows which Variants of them we'll eventually meet, though the Earth-838 versions are likely after what our Wanda did to their mother.
The MCU's Wiccan and Speed displayed the same powers as their respective comic book counterparts, so we also wouldn't be surprised if they're somehow resurrected. We know very little about how chaos magic works in the MCU, and the prevailing theory is that the Scarlet Witch survived the events of this movie (for what we're guessing will now be a redemption arc).
