‘WandaVision’ Series Will Showcase Scarlet Witch’s Reality-Altering Powers


Marvel Studios is just going to wrap up Phase 3 with Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Marvel’s Avengers Saga had recently concluded with Avengers: Endgame. So it’s heading towards newer projects to feature in future days.

With the announcement of Disney+, we will be seeing a number of TV shows and among them is WandaVision, a series based on Scarlet Witch and The Vision.

However, a new rumor is doing the rounds which claim that fans will see Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in a pretty significant transformation. We will get to see her new powers and her past.

According to Murphy’s Law Podcast, Scarlet Witch will get her reality-altering powers in WandaVision, saying,

“I’ve heard that as this show unfolds, it’s gonna find Wanda really starting to come into her powerset and that the reality-altering powers from the comic are gonna make their way into MCU.”

The Marvel Comics shows Scarlet Witch character having powerful reality-altering powers that end up leading to a 2005 event called House of M.

Wanda lost her children, that compel her to remake reality. House of M remained the only way to get know about event followed.

The fallout from the event was very wide-reaching and House of M helped inform a lot of the major events that followed.

At this time, most of the details about WandaVision are being kept under wraps. Still, Olsen was able to leak a bit by revealing about shows runtime.

She teased a 1950s aesthetic for the show and revealed it would run for six hours. Shooting on the project will begin in the fall.

While it’s possible that this new show could exist in a different universe than the one we’ve come to know so far, this still doesn’t explain the ’50s reference.

WandaVision will instead draw inspiration from Tom King’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series where Vision carved out a life of his own in ’50s-style suburbia.

The Scarlet Witch didn’t feature prominently here, but this wouldn’t be the first time that Marvel has retooled adaptations of the source material.

Wanda and Vision’s future.

We know the aftermath of Endgame.

Wanda is now alive again in the MCU, Vision remains dead. However, these powers might end up holding a clue to how he’s able to reappear.

Although some pretty major heroes died in Avengers: Endgame, the biggest casualty of all was love.

Sure, Captain America was finally reunited with his wartime sweetheart, Peggy Carter, but plenty of other heroes weren’t so lucky.

Nevertheless, there are still some hopes of getting future romance in MCU. It’s mainly down to the Vision and Wanda Maximoff, the original mutant/robot power couple. Marvel even hinted that the Scarlet Witch will be reunited with her lover somehow in a new series.

Still, none of this explains how Vision will be resurrected in the first place.

Captain Marvel screenwriter Jac Schaeffer might be the brains behind this Disney+ spin off – both writing and producing the series – but it’s Olsen who’s given us our first clue as to how the show might work.
