Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is on its way to breaking the box office around the world, having just “sword fish” nearly half a billion dollars after just its first week of release. Although considered to be monotonous and disjointed, Part 2 of Doctor Strange still brings many new hopes to the MCU, especially the “hidden” dialogue about the following super-terrible event.
Specifically in the beginning of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Wong told Doctor Strange, America Chavez and the disciples at Kamar Taj about Scarlet Witch. In the book Darkhold, the Scarlet Witch is described as someone who can rule or destroy the world. Along with that prophecy, Scarlet Witch also possesses the ability to rewrite reality to her liking.
This line of Wong’s is not only to describe the terrifying power of Scarlet Witch / Wanda Maximoff in Doctor Strange 2, but also is Marvel’s indirect hint about an extremely terrible event that is likely to hit the screen – House of M.
Scarlet Witch is still an important element of the MCU in the future
In House of M, Scarlet Witch used her powers to change reality, turning the ordinary world into a place where mutants rule, with the upper hand. After being discovered by mutants (led by Wolverine) and her father Magneto, plus her brother Quicksilver being killed, Scarlet Witch went mad and shouted “No more mutants!” (No more mutants!). The world is officially back to the original, but 90% of mutants around Earth have “failed”.
Scarlet Witch’s “curse” has almost eradicated all mutants around the world
Will House of M officially land in the MCU?
Thus, it is possible that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is cherishing a big project in the future, especially when mutants are gradually debuting through recent film projects. Plus the Scarlet Witch may not have died at the end of Doctor Strange 2, the audience has the right to believe in an epic return of the most powerful sorceress.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is showing in theaters nationwide.
