Loki star Sophia Di Martino hopes to team up with Scarlet Witch should Sylvie appear in Doctor Strange 2.
Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie was introduced to fans earlier this year in Loki, a series that saw the titular character running into alternate versions himself called “variants”. One such variant was Sylvie, who had beef with the Time Variant Authority, an organization that oversees all of time. At the end of the series, Sylvie murders the man behind The TVA, Jonathan Majors’ Kang, which causes the multiverse to open up. This major plot twist is set to feed into Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
Rumors have suggested that Loki characters Mobius and Sylvie will be popping up in the Doctor Strange sequel. While their appearances haven’t been confirmed, fans have already begun speculating what Sophia Di Martino’s character will be up to in the film. Speaking with Heatworld, the Loki actor was asked which Marvel character she’d like to team up. Martino revealed that she’d like to team up with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, a character fans would love to see her team up with.
“People seem to want to see her with Wanda, and I think that would be pretty cool as well. Sylvie and Wanda, could go either way.”
Scarlet Witch is also set to appear in the Doctor Strange sequel. At the end of WandaVision, the character assumed the role of the Scarlet Witch, practically doubling up on her powers. She’s expected to help the Sorcerer Supreme tackle the opening of the multiverse.
Details on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are currently limited, though it is said to feature horror elements. Furthermore, the Disney Plus miniseries WandaVision also served as the lead-in to the sequel. Scott Derrickson is still attached to the film as an executive producer, with Sam Raimi set to direct from a script written by Michael Waldron. The sequel will star Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, and Xochitl Gomez.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released on March 25th, 2022. Meanwhile, all episodes of Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision are available to stream on Disney Plus.
