Why Scarlet Witch’s Outfit Changed From WandaVision to Doctor Strange 2
Marvel’s Andy Park explains how Wanda Maximoff’s redesigned Scarlet Witch outfit reflects her tale in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Andy Park, Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development, has actually peeled back the drape on Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) Scarlet Witch outfit being revamped for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff was presented to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the post-credits scene of 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier prior to making her initial full appearance in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ever since, she has sported a number of various clothing. Nonetheless, it remained in the 2021 Disney+ collection WandaVision that Wanda ultimately assumed her comics moniker of the Scarlet Witch, total with brand-new threads as well as the character’s famous headdress. The previous Avenger resurfaced as the major villain of Multiverse of Madness, showing off an attire that was visually similar to the one she put on in WandaVision, though visibly different.

Naturally, the decision to make Wanda Multiverse of Madness’ major villain has actually been disruptive among Marvel fans– especially those keen on WandaVision– with some believing that her shift from grieving, mistaken hero to out-and-out bad guy really felt unearned. Nevertheless, screenwriter Michael Waldron waits the choice. “I think I would say to the WandaVision followers, like, I get it,” Waldron said soon after Multiverse of Madness’ launch. “Watching a character you like do bad things sucks. That generates a strong feeling, which is what we’re attempting to do in the films. We never would have done it if it didn’t seem like the next action in her personality journey.”
He elaborated, “To me, my interpretation of the story of WandaVision was, that Wanda is confronting her despair in that show, but I don’t assume she’s always dominating it. It’s a show about her living in denial to some extent and also she’s overcoming her rejection, however I don’t assume that she’s effectively considering her temper over what she’s endured, which rage is what she brings with her as she leaves with the knowledge that she is the Scarlett Witch and also with the Darkhold, this wicked book. And I believe it’s that temper that the Darkhold victims upon …”.
