If Marvel Cinematic Universe was to be given a synonym that would definitely be suspense. Nothing ever happens at that part of the screen in a faint, plain format. There is always drama involved. As of this time, the sequel of Doctor Strange, that is, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness confused the audience about Wanda’s death. It was seen that Wanda was obsessed with the fact of finding her children. Thus, was eager to use the power of the multiverse. She was also adamant about killing and destroying anyone or anything that came in her way. Moreover, she is highlighted as the villain of the story. But in the end, it is shown that she kills herself and destroys the breeding point of her power but to regret and guilt. Let’s discuss theories and find out if Wanda is dead or is it some other riddle of MCU.

Who is Wanda?
Wanda Maximoff is a fictional character in Marvel Cinematic Universe and is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen. The character is based on Scarlet witch by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Initially, Wanda and her brother Pietros were shown as Sokovian refugees who volunteered in Hydra’s experiment. This amplified her energy manipulation and called it Chaos Magic. She, later on, becomes an important part of the avengers. The character was seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), WandaVision (2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), and others.
Did Wanda Die in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ?
This is the most burning hot topic of the month. Will we ever see Wanda again? How will fans digest the news if it comes out to be true? Let’s find this and remove curtains from Wanda’s reality.
The end of the movie showed Wanda destroying the Wundagore Castle, from where a red flashlight sparked at the time of destruction. Hence, fans got an idea to stick up to the thought that she didn’t go anywhere and will be back. Maybe she drew a shield around her or maybe she teleported at the last minute.
This gave fans a feeling of hopefulness that Wanda might return back and rock the screen of MCU productions.
Screenwriter Michael Waldron mentioned in an interview that “I think that’s up for interpretation. She made some kind of sacrificial act that destroyed the Darkhold in every universe, which is protecting Maximoff in every universe from being seduced by the Darkhold. Whether she’s dead or not remains to be seen. I know what it’s like to love characters and do not want them to be gone and hate when they do bad things. But that’s part of the fun of watching stuff and getting swept up in it.”
Still, the final disclosure can’t be done right now as Marvel Universe is unpredictable. The sources have mentioned that the chances of her return are huge but let’s not get our hopes high and wait for the premiere of the next sequel to see how the dynamics change.
