What would a superhero movie be without a villain? The leak of the Multiverse in Spider-Man: No Way Home brought a lot of villains from the previous Spider-Man films to the MCU. The return of the Green Goblin is also an epic moment in the film. Then what about the next MCU story in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?
Since the teaser trailer was released, Wanda ( Elizabeth Olsen ) has been shown as an important figure in Doctor Strange 2. Fans can see the continuation of the story of the WandaVision series which ended with Wanda’s transformation into the Scarlet Witch figure.
In the latest trailer, Wanda’s story is getting more and more curious. His figure appears many times in different scenes, not a few of which raise questions in the minds of fans. Especially when Wanda in the form of Scarlet Witch talks to Stephen Strange ( Benedict Cumberbatch ) in a scene.
“You broke the rules and became a hero. I did it, I became the enemy. That doesn’t seem fair,” Scarlet Witch told Doctor Strange.

Fan predictions then widened to various things. Like for example the scene when Strange approached Wanda among the trees. Some say that the conditions around them are illusions created by Wanda, not actual conditions.
There are also many scenes when Scarlet Witch shows her abilities in a distinctive red costume. The scene when Scarlet Witch performs a ritual is also highlighted as one of the antagonist actions of this character. On the other hand, some say that Wanda and Scarlet Witch are two different personalities. Wanda is still a fragile Avengers figure with all the losses in her life especially after what happened at WandaVision. The unstable mental state was then used by the Scarlet Witch to control herself and Wanda’s strength.
During the exile, we are also shown that the Scarlet Witch studied the Darkhold book. One of the important elements in the story that still leaves a question mark. Some say that Wanda is still unable to move on from her loss and is still trying to return the happiness she created at WestView. Now Wanda is trying to revive her two children who she had to give up.
There’s a lot to process from the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer and Wanda’s role is one of them. On the other hand, fans predict the appearance of the Illuminati consisting of Professor X because Patrick Stewart’s voice can be heard clearly in the trailer.
