New Report Teases Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch Return In Upcoming Disney+ Show

Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch has had an incredible run of success in Phase 4, which started off with her leading efforts in 2021’s WandaVision to kick off the entire Multiverse Saga. She then became the primary antagonist in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, although that sequel ended with her seemingly meeting her end on Mount Wundagore.

Considering Wanda is arguably the most powerful character in the MCU, it’s no surprise that fans already expect Olsen to return to the role eventually, particularly with that flash of light that was seen in the rubble.

Many are hoping that her return would include a potential reunion with the love of her life, Vision, who was recently rumored to be the star of his own new series in development for Disney+. Now, that idea may actually come to fruition according to a new rumor that confirms that new show's place in Marvel Studios' future slate.

Scarlet Witch Return Set in Disney+ Show?

White Vision

Deadline corroborated Jeff Sneider's recent scoop that Vision Quest is being developed at Marvel Studios and that it would begin its writer's room this coming week.

The outlet also noted that "word is there is a possibility for Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) to appear," a sign that it's a safe bet that Olsen will be making a return in Vision Quest.

According to Deadline, Vision Quest will be a WandaVision spin-off series focusing on Paul Bettany's Vision trying to regain his memory and humanity after having his memories transferred to the 'White Vision' version of himself during the series finale.

WandaVision creator and head writer Jac Schaeffer is set to oversee Vision Quest's development, according to the report.

How Big Will Wanda's Role Be in Vision Quest?

Wanda Maximoff has become one of the key players in the Multiverse Saga following her fight against Doctor Strange in pursuit of reuniting with her children and Vision. And considering her relationship with Vision, many fans remain extremely hopeful that this report winds up being true.

But even while Wanda is rumored for an appearance in this show, it's impossible to tell how big her role will be if and when she does return.

Rumors have also pointed to Olsen possibly joining Kathryn Hahn's Agatha: Coven of Chaos next year, which will certainly arrive before Vision Quest makes much progress in its own development. And of course, many are also hoping for her to play some kind of role in one or both of the next two Avengers movies in 2025 and 2026, even with Vision Quest potentially able to be released close to when those arrive.

Regardless of how the details work out, seeing Wanda and Vision reunite in any form will be a milestone moment in the MCU after their love story took fans into a post-Infinity Saga world to start Phase 4.
