The MCU has prided itself on being an interconnected universe between film and TV over the years. With Marvel’s What If…? last year, animated properties also started making their way into the mix. Similar to the Star Wars franchise prior to it, it looks like some of these animated characters will soon appear in live-action, which includes the terrifying version of the Scarlet Witch that appeared in the zombies’ episode.
If you closely watch the second trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, there is a shot that confirms the involvement of Zombie Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). This shot even seems to be in a similar location as the warehouses used in the animated series. Be the judge for yourself by looking at the pictures below.
“I think if I told you about our animated plans, it would blow your mind,” Marvel Studios Animation boss Brad Winderbaum had previously told ComicBook.com.
“I mean, you’re completely unbounded from any sort of rules, which is both the most exciting and the most daunting thing about it because then you have to create your own rules,” he continued. “But I mean, it really is, in many ways, the purest interpretation of the imagination of the people behind it. There’s an element of chaos in all things. There’s an element of chaos in animation. Certainly a major factor in live-action. Filmmaking is chaos. And how things don’t go as planned and how you end up ultimately with a whole different set of tools than you thought you had to go in. In an animation, kind of get to work with this infinite canvas where anything you want can be achieved. And if you can conceive it, you can do it. If you can dream it, you can do it.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit the theaters on May 6th.
