Scarlet Witch Rumored To Get New Identity In ‘Marvel Zombies’

They call her mother!

Scarlet Witch Marvel Zombies What If Season 1 The Dead Queen MCU Disney Plus Animated series

It seems as though the Scarlet Witch is finally set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Marvel Zombies. However, Wanda Maximoff may be getting a whole new identity for the animated Disney Plus series.

MCU fans seem to love the Scarlet Witch in all her forms, a hypothesis proven true by the internet’s fervor for the undead corpse of the character in What If…? season 1’s episode adapting the Marvel Zombies comic. With the episode now being turned into its own series on Disney Plus, a new rumor suggests the internet’s favorite mother will be getting a new moniker: The Dead Queen.

If this rumor is true, the name “The Dead Queen” seems to suggest that the Scarlet Witch will have some sort of sway over those infected by the Quantum Virus seen in Marvel Zombies. This would also likely make her the big bad of the Disney Plus series, once more putting Wanda in a villainous role. Here’s to hoping, if this rumor is true, she returns to the side of good sometime soon in the MCU!

A Multiverse of Possibilities

What If…? features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell and other major stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” according to Marvel’s official description of the series.

In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel is also working on two more animated series — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode five, which revolves around a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.

All episodes of What If…? season 2 are now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
