Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos solo in Avengers reckons Marvel boss
We all know the power of Scarlet Witch however Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has just confirmed the true might of her strength against Thanos. The studio head was waxing lyrical on the character, played by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel movies, and whether or not she ever stood a chance against Thanos in both Avengers’ Infinity War and Endgame.
Turns out that, yes, yes Wanda Maximoff really could have messed that man up.
Speaking with ComicBook.com following the brilliant unveiling of the fourth phrase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kevin noted: ‘Well, we got a Falcon and Winter Soldier show, we got a WandaVision show. We’re introducing Monica Rambeau in that WandaVision show…’ He continued on Wanda, noting she ‘is probably near the upper echelons of power’.
‘I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done,’ he continued. We mean, if the Marvel boss says she could have taken him down, we have to believe those words. Thanos really effed things up .
Kevin added: ‘So her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.’ To refresh your memory, Scarlet Witch went after the Mad Titan in the precursor to Endgame after he killed Vision for the Mind Stone.
However she was snapped away and we thought all was lost. In Endgame, they reunited though, and she used the full brunt of her powers to rain misery on the giant (especially after, seeing as he was a past version of Thanos, he didn’t remember who she was).Unfortunately her power was no match for Thanos’ whole army, as he called in the reinforcements.
