What Happens At The End Of Doctor Strange 2?

Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) is the villain of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which doesn’t waste any time in unveiling her. The narrative of the film revolves around Stephen’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) attempts to prevent Wanda from acquiring America Chavez’s (Xochitl Gomez) multiversal powers, which would not only jeopardize the multiverse’s fate but also murder the young superhero. This fight to a head at the summit of Wundagore Mountain, where Strange persuades America that she has the power to stop Wanda. Wanda’s horrific crimes are exposed to the very family members she’s been trying to reach as a result of the conflict between her and America, and a fateful encounter with one of her other selves puts Wanda back on the path of good. Wanda vows to destroy the Darkhold by bringing down the mountain where its spells were initially penned in the film’s last ten minutes. Wanda appears to take her own life in the process, allowing herself to be crushed by the disintegrating temple.

Is Wanda Maximoff, however, truly dead?

The answer is currently unknown. Wanda’s destiny will, sadly, remain unknown until Marvel confirms her death or brings her back in a future project. However, it appears improbable that Wanda Maximoff, one of Marvel’s most powerful and popular characters, has been killed.

Wanda Maximoff, who went full evil in her quest to reunite with her children after losing them in WandaVision, was revealed to be Doctor Strange 2’s main villain. Using the Darkhold, she has been able to tap into chaos magic. The Illuminati, the majority of Kamar-warriors, Taj’s and a Doctor Strange variation are among her victims. However, just as she is about to complete her duty, it becomes too much for her. Chavez slams Wanda back into the 838 reality in the finale. Here, she meets this reality’s version of her children, who are afraid of the Scarlet Witch, and asks Wanda 838 to save them. Wanda 616, distraught, sees herself through the eyes of her children and realizes the havoc she has wreaked. She returns via the portal.

Beyond speculation, there’s reason to believe that. Viewers have seen a small flash of red chaos magic explosion within the Darkhold temple as it crumbles at the end of the Doctor Strange movie. The source of the blast of power is never revealed, but it’s safe to assume it’s a visual clue that Wanda has escaped death. It’s also worth noting that we never see Wanda’s body, which is a common occurrence in the MCU. We’ll have to wait and see what Marvel has in store for the character. For the time being, her destiny is unknown, but she isn’t the only character whose fate is unknown at the conclusion of the film.
