WandaVision helmer Matt Shakman says there’s a lot more story to be told with Wanda in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie.
While Matt Shakman states WandaVision is going to tell an undivided narrative about Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and her stint in Westview, New Jersey, the director agrees that there’s a lot more storytelling yet to come with the character.
#WandaVision director Matt Shakman says “there’s a lot more of [Wanda’s] story to be told” in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’

Shakman told the outlet,
We were trying to tell a complete story in terms of the narrative around Westview, N.J., and we hope that there’s some resolution to that story and that it is satisfying and also surprising for the fans.
But Wanda will continue into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and there’s a lot more to her story to be told, so this is only one part of a very complicated and very rich life.
The filmmaker previously echoed similar words when he affirmed how he hopes fans will gain complete satisfaction with the finale.
Well, I certainly hope that people find it to be a satisfying conclusion. You know, we definitely have known the story that we want to tell from the beginning, so that sense of building towards a final moment that made sense for us from the beginning is there. So, I hope people find it both surprising, but inevitable… I hate stories that pivot, 180 at the last minute and you’re like, ‘What have I been watching this whole time?’ You know, Agatha Christie novels where the murderer is someone you just met pops in and you’re like, ‘Come on, why did I read this whole thing?’
Shakman hopes all of this feels like it’s gaining momentum and snowballing towards the ultimate conclusion while it continues to deal with how you handle sorrow and death and return from it.
The director says they’ve added several new players to the table as well or disclosed features of some players on the table. So now you’ve got two Visions on the game board, and what will be its implication? Who’s the actual Vision?
WandaVision season finale airs on 5th March 2021 on Disney+.
