Benedict Cumberbatch has been signed to appear as Doctor Strange on the final of WandaVision. Then Marvel decided not to and had to change everything.
Rolling stone spoke with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and he explained how that surprising news has fallen. Essentially, because Marvel had announced Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) would appear in the Doctor Strange after Doctor Strange and Multiverse of Madness, the plan was for Cumberbatch appear on the series to relate to this film. One version had made it pop in one of WandaVisionadvertisements of. Another had the ads as actual messages from Strange to Wanda. But in the end, they just cut it off.
“Some people might say, ‘Oh, that would have been so cool to see the doctor Strange, ”Feige told Rolling Stone. “But that would have taken Wanda away, which we didn’t want to do. We didn’t want the end of the series to be trivialized to go to the next movie –here is the white guy, ‘Let me show you how power works.’ “
Once Strange’s bond with Wanda was cut from the series, the movie itself had to be changed as well, most likely to add the bit of history connecting the Supreme Wizard and the Scarlet Witch that allegedly happened. in the series. In the current state of the MCU, WandaVision left Wanda alone in a certain distancefar from it, studying his new powers. Some have suggested that she ran away too easily, without paying the price for what she did to the people of Westview, but Olsen herself has a tease about that.
“She had to run away before the people who should hold her responsible arrived,” Olsen told the magazine. “And where she went is a place no one could find her. Because she knows she’s going to be held responsible, and I think she has a lot of guilt.
Looks like this could be a clue to how Wanda is playing in the Multiverse of Madness. We’ll find out on March 25, 2022.
