The Marvel Cinematic Universe is changing for good or worse with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). With just a month left, inside reports claim that the Marvel movie is a “killing spree” and could kill off fan-favorite characters.

Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) is the key for Phase Four of the MCU. WandaVision, Loki, and now Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is her perfect trilogy, as the Scarlet Witch heavily affected all of these stories.

With new trailers and promos, every Marvel fan can see that Olsen’ Wanda Maximoff is the (or possibly just one) main villain of this Doctor Strange sequel, seemingly taking out a race of magic users to save her children, Billy and Tommy Maximoff.

No Marvel character is safe in this insane film, including star Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). As Strange traverses the Multiverse with newcomer America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), Sorcerer Supreme Wong (Benedict Wong), it seems that something causes Wanda to snap.

While fans don’t know precisely what causes Maximoff to turn against Strange and more, it’s clear that she’s going to kill numerous characters:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving into a darker, more mature era with streaming titles like Moon Knight and the upcoming film Blade.

Seeing Wanda Maximoff sporting a blood-covered shirt shows that director Sam Raimi is carrying the MCU into a bloodbath with Doctor Strange, something that’s comic accurate when it comes to the Scarlet Witch erasing mutants from the Marvel collection in the House of M series.

Marvel Confirms the “Killing Spree”

In a new still from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that Marvel just released it’s clear that Wanda Maximoff goes on a bloody rampage, calling back to director Sam Raimi’s early films such as Evil Dead (1983).

Seeing Wanda covered with blood (and barefoot) seems like she belongs in a Quentin Tarantino movie, not a Marvel movie. This Doctor Strange sequel will undoubtedly be the most brutal and bloodiest installment to the Marvel collection (within the MCU) to date!

Which Characters Will Die?

Which characters could Wanda Maximoff kill in Doctor Strange? While it’s pretty safe to say Strange, Chavez, and even Wong will survive for the sake of the plotline and future installments, variants of these characters could be victims of the Scarlet Witch.

On top of that, Illuminati members and their sub servants could be the following casualties of Maximoff:

In the official trailers and teasers for this movie, it’s clear that Wanda will want to consume America Chavez’s powers to travel throughout the Mutliverse and find her children, resulting in Strange protecting the young superhero from harm.

Characters killed in Doctor Strange wouldn’t be gone forever as the Multiverse has just cracked open, ushering in a new era of characters, heroes, and villains.
