Is The Latest Episode of ‘What If…’? Hinting Towards Scarlet Witch’s Future?

If you haven’t seen the animated Marvel series What If…? you’re missing quite an entertaining series. The show features some of our favorite Marvel characters primarily voiced by the actual actors who play them in the movies in wildly different scenarios that have become more and more fascinating as the weeks go by.

What If... hits new heights with Doctor Strange episode

This week’s episode, What If…Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands? went in a completely unexpected dark direction. No, this episode wasn’t about highlighting an evil Doctor Strange. This episode highlighted the power of grief and what it could do to someone with the powers of someone like Doctor Strange. And of course, because this series is canon, I immediately began to think of Wanda Maximoff a.k.a the Scarlet Witch.

WandaVision was a nine-episode study of grief and the pain it caused a simple town and its inhabitants as Wanda Maximoff accidentally took them by hostage through her own power. This power is called Chaos Magic and it is the most powerful and volatile source of magic in the universe.

Through Chaos Magic Scarlet Witch was able to bring Vision back to life and create two children while also changing the reality of a little town, turning it into her own eutopia inspired daily by different sitcoms. Of course, she ultimately is reminded that she’s an Avenger and undoes the wrong that she has caused but that doesn’t mean she’s not capable of turning back into the woman who will get what she wants, no matter the cost. Remember the haunting words Agatha says to Wanda in the season finale, “It is your destiny to destroy the world.”

Hmm…now that sounds grimly familiar.

Just think about The Watcher’s final words in the latest episode episode: “One life, one choice, one moment, can destroy the entire universe.”

Shang-Chi IMAX Poster Offers Another Glimpse Of Its Dragon Character - IGN

Everything I’ve heard about this film has been overwhelmingly positive among the critics and casual viewers. The film has a 92% Rotten Tomatoes score, it’s currently sitting at 8/10 on IMDb, and yeah, it’s got a couple of awesome post-credits scenes that I can’t wait to see, just to make things even more exciting.

Yesterday’s episode of What If…? was amazing and I just know this movie is about to be awesome! But I’ve still got a bit of Marvel marathon work ahead of me.

I’ve reached Endgame and now all I have to do is finish it.

With each Marvel marathon that I do the list gets longer…and longer…and longer. It used to be easy getting through all of these movies but now it’s an actual chore. But it’s an exciting and rather fun chore nonetheless and that’s the great part.
