Doctor Strange 2 merchandise reveals a full look at Wanda’s new Scartlet Witch costume, highlighting differences to her outfit from WandaVision.
Marvel has released new merchandise featuring Scarlet Witch in her costume for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Coming off of the excitement of Spider-Man: No Way Home, interest in the multiverse and the possibilities it could create in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are at an all-time high. In that film, Doctor Strange tries to help Peter Parker make the world forget that he is Spider-Man, but the spell goes awry, bringing in villains and heroes from other universes. The fallout from the spell in No Way Home is what sets up Doctor Strange 2, with Strange needing to answer for the damage he caused.
Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) is coming off of heartbreak in Avengers: Infinity War and the events of the Disney+ series WandaVision. In the series, she takes over the town of Westview and brings her love, Vision, back to life so she can live the life she always wanted. In the process, though, she is torturing the town’s citizens. She eventually realizes the error in her ways and frees the town, which also meant saying goodbye to Vision and her children. WandaVision‘s post-credits scene shows Wanda leaving to live alone, and this is where Doctor Strange finds her in the Multiverse of Madness trailer.
Listed on Amazon (2), new shirts inspired by Doctor Strange 2 reveal a better look at Wanda’s new Scarlet Witch costume for film. The outfit is similar to the one she wore in the finale of WandaVision, but there are a couple notable differences. She is wearing the same headband, but this outfit gives Wanda sleeves. The sleeves seem to be part of a long coat, but the fabric flowing behind her in the image may just be part of her elaborate top. Also gone are the gloves from the WandaVision costume, and here she’s illustrated as being bare-handed. Check out the images, below:
Something else that is intriguing about the design on one of the shirts is the circle pattern seen behind Wanda, which is similar in look to the magic Doctor Strange and Wong use. This may just be a visual design for the film, but it could also suggests Wanda tapping into magic that’s similar to their’s. WandaVision established her using what’s called Chaos Magic, so her branching out into other magic would be interesting. The Doctor Strange 2 trailer also teases Strange tapping into Chaos Magic, so there may even be some magical power swapping taking place.
It is still unknown whether Wanda will be seen fighting against Doctor Strange or if she will ultimately support him in Multiverse of Madness. Wanda was a villain of sorts in WandaVision, and the Scarlet Witch has played that role before in the comics, so it’s not impossible she’ll oppose Strange for part of the film. Wanda is a very complex character, after all, and Doctor Strange 2 director Sam Raimi did consult with the director of WandaVision to make sure he did her justice. Including the beloved Avenger in Doctor Strange 2 is a logical decision because of her experience with alternate universes, and it will be interesting to finally see her role in the story of Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness.
