If you remember the plot of this film, on Earth-838 Stephen Strange begins to be judged by the Illuminati, a team made up of Baron Mordo, Black Bolt, Peggy Carter, Captain Marvel, Reed Richards and Charles Xavier.
However, the film’s screenwriter, Michael Waldron, revealed to The Direct that his original idea was to integrate the Earth 838 version of The Wasp, who, like the other members of the Illuminati, suffered a deadly fate.
“Wasp was originally in a version of the Illuminati, and Wasp shrank and flew at Wanda, and (Scarlet Witch) just clapped her hands and squashed Wasp in the first draft“.
Waldron did not explain which of the two women who have carried the Hope Van Dyne or Janet Pym was the one contemplated to appear in the second Sorcerer Supreme tape.
Were there problems for assassinating the Illuminati?
The screenwriter noted that despite the deaths of the Illuminati characters, Marvel Studios supported the production headed by Sam Raimi.
“Yes, I was so afraid that someone would tell us that we went too far, and no one ever did. Sam (Raimi), you always helped get us there. Kevin (Feige) always encouraged us to go further. Our other bosses, Louis D’ Esposio, Victoria Alonso, all supported us every step of the way to push this film forward.“.
