The Return of Scarlet Witch: Elizabeth Olsen wants 'redemption' for beloved Marvel character
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Scarlet Witch has demonstrated her willingness to go to any lengths—including murdering a teenage girl and taking her superpowers—in order to integrate her kids into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Scarlet Witch is finally defeated by Doctor Strange by the end of 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness', giving the impression that she died in the final conflict.
Given that Elizabeth Olsen wants the character to return and that she is a fan favourite, Marvel Studios will almost certainly bring her back. Olsen disclosed her one thought regarding Scarlet Witch's comeback in a recent interview with Screen Rant. Let's see what she has to say.

'We can really have fun'
During her interview with Screen Rant, Olsen was asked about the direction Marvel might take with her Scarlet Witch. To this, she responded, "We can do anything with her now! I feel like we've done so much. Now, we can really have fun; I feel like there's a lot more humor to be had with her. She's often the emotion of a story, and I'm curious to see what we can explore. And hopefully [we can] give her some redemption."
'WandaVision' was praised as one of the most creative MCU projects, especially the initial batch of episodes that highlighted how Wanda created imaginary, sitcom-inspired worlds to process her grief over losing Vision. 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' took her anguish a step further by sending her on a world-ending hunt for her imaginary sons. Even though her vicious turn could be viewed as unredeemable, her character still requires redemption to wrap up her story.
While Phase Four of the MCU has done a commendable job of presenting the next generation of superheroes, the franchise really thrives when it successfully bids farewell to beloved characters. Wanda can find peace by getting in touch with Vision again, and either begin over with him or truly saying goodbye to her family because he still exists in the contemporary MCU.
