Marvel fans have had quite an amazing year so far. The world is in the midst of its fourth MCU Disney+ show is currently reveling in the quality of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

All of that is only just over half of what 2021 has to offer. This coming November brings both Eternals and Disney+'s Hawkeye to the party, with December closing the year out with the bombastic Spider-Man: No Way Home.

It's important to not forget the past, though. After all, this incredible year of Marvel content was jump-started by the success of WandaVision, a show which landed with massive critical and fan praise thanks to Elizabeth Olsen's stellar performance—among many other things.

Wanda's exploration of grief and trauma connected countless people around the world, and the streaming project became one of the most talked-about shows in pop culture for eight weeks straight.

Now, thanks to Marvel Studios artist Andy Park, fans have a new look at one of Wanda Maximoff's alternate Halloween costumes.

On the official Andy Park Art YouTube Channel, brand new concept art for WandaVision was revealed. As seen above, the new keyframe shows off Wanda's original Halloween look.

According to Park, the show's producer wanted Wanda in "a gypsy kind of like, fortune-teller type of look:"

"At this point, the producer did not want her, Wanda, in the classic... not necessarily that she didn't want her in the classic, but it was more like, 'Let's give her more of a gypsy kind of like, fortune teller type of look.'"

As previously reported, Elizabeth Olsen herself requested the change. As Andy Park put it once again, "after seeing Paul [Bettany]... she said, 'I want to also be in the classic comic "look':"

"... And it wasn't until Elizabeth Olsen herself, that she was the one who, after seeing Paul [Bettany] in that crazy, ridiculous, classic comic look, that she said, 'I want to also be in the classic comic look.' But that happened also after the fact, so, kudos to her!"

Then there's the final product, which much more closely matches Vision's look––not to mention their children as well. Needless to say, it feels like Elizabeth Olsen made the right call.

This isn't the first time that fans have seen some of this concept art, as bits and pieces of it were seen previously––such as Billy's Asgardian attire. This, however, is the first time that Elizabeth Olsen's original Halloween attire has been seen by the world. 

While it's plenty understandable as to why the producer of WandaVision wanted to go a different way with the look, the final costume for Wanda matches the rest of the cast far better.

Also, the entire world absolutely loved what they got, and the Halloween outfit was one of the first things that fans saw from the show.

The next time fans see Wanda Maximoff, it won't be in a Halloween costume––instead, she's likely to be donning the new outfit that she has at the end of WandaVision. After all, if Wanda is going to be spending most of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness next to Stephen Strange, she's going to need to stand up to his theatrical appearance.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters worldwide on March 25, 2022.
