Scarlet Witch in the X-Men?
Since the takeover of 20th Century Fox studios by Disney, all of its productions, including Deadpool and the X-Men have become Mickey’s property. And these superheroes haven’t had any adventures since, and the pandemic cannot be solely to blame. But things seem to be starting to move again sincea Deadpool movie is planned for the end of 2023. And the X-Men could indeed make their debut in the MCU in turn. After all we have seen Professor X make an appearance in the latest installment of Doctor Strange, as Patrick Stewart. Which could very well be a small taste before the wider inclusion of the X-Men in future Marvel productions.
The actress Elizabeth Olsen, interpreter of Wanda Maximoff alias Scarlet Witch, recently expressed her interest in the famous group of mutants. In an interview with Good Morning America, the American actress said she would like to be part of the X-Men : “If they (Marvel) bring back the X-Men, I want to be part of it! I don’t have any plans yet, but I’m looking forward to talking to Kevin Feige about it eventually.”
Scarlet Witch’s future in the MCU
After she was the center of attention in the WandaVision series and the recent Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessmany fans are wondering about Scarlet Witch’s future in the MCU and are already asking for his return to the screen. The rumors are going well, especially regarding a solo film, to which Elizabeth Olsen responds with an encouragement to the fans: “Keep spreading rumors and maybe they’ll hire me again!“
If we stay on the side of the possible, the witch could very well appear in the next Disney+ series Agatha: House of Harkness, most likely a sequel to WandaVision which is expected on the SVOD platform by 2023/2024. Regarding the wish of the actress to join the X-Men, it is not a crazy idea given that Wanda Maximoff is one of the mutants in the comics. Wanda’s brother, Pietro Maximoff, was a part of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men films, before making an appearance in WandaVision, so why not her?
