    If they wanted her to be a Magneto type of villain then they would have done the story the tag scene of "WandaVision" sets up, where she thinks her children are in danger and will do anything to get...
  2. Also because she stops on her own, they can say...

    Also because she stops on her own, they can say they avoided the trope of the crazy woman who needs a man to stop her. There are a lot of things they put in to deflect accusations of sexism, like the...
  3. I don't really care about feats. And many of the...

    I don't really care about feats. And many of the moments I like best with Wanda, or any other character, is when they take on someone more powerful than them and win anyway, by using their powers...
  4. I remember when the full plot leaked last summer,...

    I remember when the full plot leaked last summer, even people who believed the Wanda part found it unbelievable that Strange would do so little in his own movie. Because from the plot, it seemed like...
  5. That's just the writer's decision, though. Even...

    That's just the writer's decision, though. Even if you assume Wanda is more powerful than Strange -- hard to believe since she uses such a limited power set in this movie -- he could go up against...
  6. It's just Wanda's rotten luck that the MCU breaks...

    It's just Wanda's rotten luck that the MCU breaks from the formula by making the audience expect a team-up and never giving it to them, so anyone who wanted to see her team up with Doctor Strange...
  7. That's probably why. In WandaVision there was a...

    That's probably why. In WandaVision there was a controversy because you could really argue about how bad she was.

    The movie... everyone admits she does terrible things and even people who hate her...
  8. It's doing good, not as good as the most popular...

    It's doing good, not as good as the most popular MCU movies, but not as bad as the least popular (which I guess would be Eternals), and it also hasn't had any other blockbusters to compete with for...
  9. It's been said many times, but: this movie's...

    It's been said many times, but: this movie's story was mostly developed before Sam Raimi even knew WandaVision existed, and most everything in "WandaVision" is either not mentioned or contradicted.

  10. The creator of "WandaVision" did say she...

    The creator of "WandaVision" did say she originally considered having an element of that in Wanda's sitcom, but it was in the early drafts and didn't make it into the final version.

    As for the...
  11. To turn to positive things, the Red Lucy story...

    To turn to positive things, the Red Lucy story was so corny but I kind of love it. A bad guy called the "Past Master" considers Wanda the most dangerous mutant because she's so popular with the...
  12. What do you mean "if?" They haven't done anything...

    What do you mean "if?" They haven't done anything with her on a consistent basis since her solo ended, and that wasn't even produced by the Avengers office.

    We're used to waiting and we'll just...
  13. Now that the rumors about the movie have come...

    Now that the rumors about the movie have come true, I do wonder if they feel it's pointless to tie in with the MCU when the MCU had such conflicting plans for her. By the time they had used "Trial...
  14. No Wanda in the August solicits, naturally (there...

    No Wanda in the August solicits, naturally (there is a House of M omnibus in case we needed to add insult to injury). Also, Quicksilver is finally back, but in "Damage Control," which suggests that...
  15. Why? "WandaVision" was good because it paired...

    Why?

    "WandaVision" was good because it paired Wanda characters who are actually from her own lore: Vision, Agatha, the boys. "Multiverse of Madness" was bad for her because it forgot about almost...
  16. I wish we didn't have to discuss this movie as if...

    I wish we didn't have to discuss this movie as if it made sense. The whole point of the story, if there was a point, was that Wanda's plan made no sense and fell apart as soon as she realized the...
  17. Yeah, if people have a choice between seeing her...

    Yeah, if people have a choice between seeing her hang out with Agatha, or with her kids, who would choose the kids?

    If there is a Scarlet Witch project, Kathryn Hahn had better be in it. Everyone...
  18. The plot leak that (sadly) got everything right...

    The plot leak that (sadly) got everything right last summer said that Wanda's children only appear at the end and are aged up. I'm assuming that refers to a Young Avengers setup that never happened....
  19. Oh, I think they'll be back. It's true this movie...

    Oh, I think they'll be back. It's true this movie dismissed them as not real, but that contradicts WandaVision, and it also fits with the comics, where everyone in "Avengers Disassembled" assumed the...
  20. One reason WandaVision was a good premise is that...

    One reason WandaVision was a good premise is that superhero movies really are like sitcoms. Continuity is basically fake, characters are whatever they need to be for the plot, and they're constantly...
  21. This thread always resolves to this, but: bad...

    This thread always resolves to this, but: bad writing doesn't count to how I feel about a character.

    When Wanda realized she was hurting people, she sacrificed her children and her husband to set...
  22. She has to answer for stuff because the character...

    She has to answer for stuff because the character we know would never hurt people willingly, and if she doesn't actually bother to learn to stop hurting people, then she's not worth following because...
  23. Plus her range of powers was actually severely...

    Plus her range of powers was actually severely restricted. Her "spontaneous creation" power from WandaVision, the thing the entire plot ran on, was almost totally ignored. In the fights, she was...
  24. Unfortunately I think the Xavier part was showing...

    Unfortunately I think the Xavier part was showing that the "good" Wanda was being controlled by our own evil Wanda.

    It does seem like the Darkhold was controlling her because she snapped out of it...
  25. Maybe, but it feels like something they would do...

    Maybe, but it feels like something they would do in a What If. Probably due to the constant rewrites, the alternate universe Wanda had no personality and only one major line of dialogue, and her...
