‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness’ is already part of the Disney + catalog, but it has also appeared for sale on digital services, which includes an audio commentary with the participation of the director sam raimithe co-producer Richie Palmer and the screenwriter michael waldronwhere they comment on different aspects of the function, but what is not interesting now is that a very important Marvel character was about to appear in it to die horribly.
This was the horrible death of Wasp
The character in question is Wasp, who in an early version of the script was part of the Illuminati that Scarlet Witch faces. Waldron has also explained that the character played by elizabeth olsen brutally ended Wasp in what was also a nod to ‘Aliens: The Return’:
I think I saw ‘Aliens: Homecoming’ and was thinking about the way those Marines get slaughtered, and, yeah, I was glad it worked. Originally, the Wasp was in a version of the Illuminati, and the Wasp shrank and flew at Wanda, and she just clapped her hands and squashed the Wasp.
For his part, Palmer confesses that he had doubts that Marvel would accept that subplot, but that he ended up receiving support from all the bosses of the company. Of course, the character embodied by Evangeline Lilly was ultimately left out of the movie, but not the Illuminati plot…
In any case, the death of the character would have been that of a different version whom we know within the MCU, as it is confirmed that we will see this superhero again in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’.
