Vision is nowhere to be found in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But it makes sense because the movie’s main focus is on Wanda Maximoff and Scarlet Witch. Marvel Studios’ latest movie introduces audiences to Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in a time when she is grieving the death of her children, Tommy and Billy. As one could imagine, this loss is extremely traumatizing for Wanda. However, she manages to be powerful even after suffering such tragic life events. To live a life with her children, Scarlet Witch thrives to gain America Chavez’s powers to jump between the multiverses.
The Wanda And Vision Story: Why Scarlet Witch Was At The Center In Doctor Strange 2
The synthetic android called Vision was created by Ultron and eventually encountered the mind of a woman called Wanda Maximoff. Throughout their time together, Vision fell in love with Wanda. Both of them then left after realizing their feelings for each other during Captain America: Civil War where they hid from the government in secret. They were able to do this because everyone thought that Vision was dead – which was actually true. While hiding, their relationship bloomed but soon it could no longer be after Thanos came for the Mind Stone (in Avengers: Infinity War) that resided in Vision’s head.
The death of Vision was Wanda’s turning point. After defeating the Avengers and leaving Doctor Strange lying on the sidelines, Scarlet went on to create a sitcom-style universe out of an entire town where she came up with an idea that came to mind while pouring over the mystic Darkhold book, attempting to bring her late husband back to life. As much as Wanda would have liked things to be different, Vision is gone and at the end of it all, she had nobody but herself to blame.
Why Vision Wasn’t There In Doctor Strange 2?
As we have seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Scarlet Witch goes to extreme lengths and breaks many rules to live with her children from other timelines. This was noted by Olsen who explained that the decision was made early on for the MCU version of Scarlet Witch to look for a reality where Vision wasn’t a factor because they are actually still married, but they haven’t been living together so she has reason not to wear her wedding ring anymore.
So, this means Vision may exist in that world, but he simply isn’t with the family in that scenario as they have been divorced or separated. Wanda also shows signs of being obsessive and villainous due to her willingness to do whatever is necessary to get what she wants; in this case keeping her family together. One way she’ll potentially achieve this goal is by disposing of the other Wanda which shows her desperation since it creates an alternate universe and essentially sacrifices one life so another can live.
It seems a bit difficult to understand Wanda’s true intentions and feelings given the fact that Vision has been referenced so much throughout her character development. The Darkhold could be blamed for a lot of her actions, but there’s still really only one way to have the story end in the best possible way; this is through Vision and Wanda being reunited once again.
