Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness featured a dark turn for Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch in surprising and violent fashion. While the sequel's trailers appeared to feature Wanda Maximoff as one of the protagonists, the film didn't waste any time in showing the character's villainous intentions, which are all driven by her obsession with bringing back her children, Tommy and Billy.
In the film, Wanda went on a killing spree, killing every Illuminati member aside from Baron Mordo of Earth-838 and destroying Kamar-Taj before that. Multiverse of Madness head scribe Michael Waldron explained Wanda's heel turn, describing it as an "accelerated descent into madness," but it's earned due to the character's possession of the Darkhold at the end of WandaVision.
Now, to celebrate Wanda's turn to being an antagonist, a new set of collectible figures has emerged online.

Marvel Celebrates the MCU's Scarlet Witch
Hot Toys is best known for creating movie-accurate figures for the MCU, and it seems that the toy company nailed another one in their collection due to the arrival of this Scarlet Witch collectible. Based on what's been revealed, toy collectors everywhere will be given the chance to recreate iconic scenes from the Doctor Strange sequel, mainly due to the jam-packed accessories included in both versions.
Elizabeth Olsen had a memorable performance in Multiverse of Madness, but her future as Wanda Maximoff is still unknown due to the film's ending. Doctor Strange 2 writer Michael Waldron even mentioned that Wanda's fate after the movie is unclear, saying that her passing is "up for interpretation."
