Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its first appearance in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ – and, after having starred in several titles in marvel studiosincluding the acclaimed series ‘WandaVision’several fans are waiting for more announcements starring the character.
However, that was not the case for the Marvel panel last D23 Expo. On the contrary, the public, who had been expecting some revelation about Wanda’s future projects, didn’t get any updates – which led viewers to comment on her frustration on social media.

Speaking to Variety in May of this year, Olsen revealed that she’s willing to return more often as the character to the superheroic pantheon and that she believes Wanda’s story is far from over.
“It’s strange that I’m waiting to return, but no one has said anything to me,” she commented. “In my head, I’m believing they’ll have me again. I don’t know in what capacity, but I hope I’m back. I hope it’s more fun in a different way. Where will we go? I feel like we’ve done a lot with her. It’s been a pretty crazy few years for her.”
She also commented on some points that can be explored with the character, making parallels with the recent miniseries. ‘WandaVision’:
“I just wanted everything to feel like something in progress, even if the progress is someone having a different reaction to loss and pain. We also didn’t see her reacting to what happened in Westview. Even if we saw her go through the trauma and loss, we didn’t see her go through the loss of children. I believe that for any parent – I do, because I don’t have children – the loss of a child would always be harder than the loss of any other important person in their life. I just wanted to make sure it’s a constant evolution and not a repetition.”
