Kevin Feige Says Scarlet Witch Could Defeat Thanos One-On-One


Scarlet Witch has always been a force to be reckoned with, ever since she successfully messed with the Avengers’ heads in Age of Ultron, but she really got to show what she’s made of in Avengers: Endgame. In a memorable standoff during the movie’s big battle, Wanda Maximoff almost got the best of Thanos, but the Mad Titan resorted to sacrificing his foot soldiers to get her off his back.

According to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, however, if the villain hadn’t called in the troops, Scarlet Witch would have won. The studio president talked with and spoke about how Wanda’s one of the most powerful heroes in the franchise, dropping this titbit in the process.

“Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power – I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done.”

And if you thought Wanda was strong already, then wait ’til we get to see WandaVisionThe upcoming Disney Plus series was officially announced at Comic-Con, with star Elizabeth Olsen taking the stage and teasing that the show would be a deep dive into the Scarlet Witch and her extremely dangerous powers. Fans are theorizing that her reality-warping abilities from the comics will be tackled in the MCU for the first time, too.

Then, soon after that, Wanda will be back again in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in which the sorceress will be teaming up with the Sorcerer Supreme. Feige also told that he thinks the power boost Wanda will receive in her own series will make her pairing with Stephen Strange even more “fun.”

“So her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage, in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.”

WandaVision will explore how Scarlet Witch gets Vision back after his death in Avengers: Infinity War, while Doctor Strange 2 features the pair traversing the multiverse and facing the villainous Nightmare. Expect them in mid-2021 and November of that same year, respectively.
