Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff will finally be called Scarlet Witch in the Disney Plus series WandaVision.
First introduced in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff has maintained a heavy presence in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda has never called by her comic book name: Scarlet Witch. While not an explicit issue, it felt odd for most of the heroes to be called by their names, only for Elizabeth Olsen’s character to just be called Wanda.
Kevin Feige and co. have heard fans loud and clear and will finally give fans what they’ve wanted: Scarlet Witch. In Elizabeth Olsen’s upcoming WandaVision series, she’ll officially be called Scarlet Witch. Confirmed at CCXP Brazil by Kevin Fiege, the Marvel head honcho went on to discuss the significance of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda finally being called Scarlet Witch, and the importance of the WandaVision series.
“We have the opportunity to tell their story, and show more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision, Vision, and most importantly, reveal a name that I’m not even sure we’ve said in the MCU yet, but we make a big deal of in the show, is the fact that Wanda is the Scarlet Witch. And what does that mean, that she is the Scarlet Witch? That’s what we play into with this show in ways that are entirely fun, entirely funny, somewhat scary, and will have repercussions for the entire future of Phase 4 of the MCU.”
It is odd that they’re titling the show WandaVision instead of ScarletWitchVision but we’re sure there’s a sustainable reason behind that choice. Perhaps the series will spend some time showcasing how Elizabeth Olsen’s character feels inadequate and wants her own moniker? Only time will tell what’s in store for the upcoming WandaVision series when it hits Disney Plus in 2021.

WandaVision centers on Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch after the events of Avengers: Endgame and is believed to follow the character after she creates an idyllic world in which Paul Bettany’s Vision is still alive. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed WandaVision will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will see Elizabeth Olsen reprise her role as Scarlet Witch. The first half of the series is set to take cues from multiple sitcoms over the decades, while the second half is said to be a Marvel blockbuster.
WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role.
WandaVision is scheduled to premiere on Disney Plus in the Spring of 2021.
