    Wanda's brief scenes with Carol in "Star" made me think Thompson would have a good take on their relationship, with Wanda more hopeful that Ripley...

    I will say this, before 2021 it was possible that despite Wanda being in the MCU, she was still best known as Magneto's daughter. Her parts in the...
