Kevin Smith can’t seem to wait to see Wanda Maximoff yet again in the forthcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but more than that, he also hopes that she reappears as a villain in the film. The Avenger found herself lost in grief during WandaVision, even using her reality-warping powers to create newer realities for herself (and well, her family, which also includes the late Vision) to just exist in. Now while the teaser trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness seemed to have suggested that the duo will eventually be teaming up to face a much bigger problem, Smith hopes that some of this trauma that led Wanda down the wrong path in Disney+’s WandaVision will finally come to light in Multiverse of Madness.
Smith also addressed the question on the most recent episode of Fatman Beyond, his podcast alongside Marc Bernardin. The two looked at the year ahead for superhero releases and stopped in May to talk about Doctor Strange and Wanda.
“Four f—ing months from now we get to see Wanda again?” Smith said. “WandaVision still remains my favorite Marvel/Disney+ TV show, and I think one of my favorite if not my favorite thing from 2021. I think it might be my favorite piece of art/media. I f—ing loved it so much. It is grief porn, and I am there for it. Grief porn and they’re wearing f—ing costumes. What’s f—ing better than that? And it’s fun and brilliantly creative in terms of being a TV show within a TV show. I absolutely loved that, so I look forward to seeing Wanda again. Like an old friend, like a family member — that you actually like. Not one of those f—ing family members that you’re like ‘ew,’ but somebody you’re like ‘I want to see that cat again.’ I’ve seen online, people are like ‘she’s a hero,’ ‘she’s a villain.’ I hope she’s the bad guy. That would rock for me. But a redemptive one and s–t, don’t throw her away. that’s a great character, but of anybody she would be excused if she wnet totally rogue. We saw the whole f—ing show. She has reasons.”
