Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke to Wanderer Publication for an upcoming narrative history of the program and stated, “Some people might say, ‘Oh, it would’ve been so cool to see Dr. Strange.'”

“But it would have taken away from Wanda, which is what we didn’t want to do,” Feige stated. “We didn’t want the end of the show to be commoditized to go to the next movie — here’s the white guy, ‘Let me show you how power works.'”

The character of Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) is set to appear in the movie “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” slated to be launched in 2022.

“WandaVision,” starring Olsen and Paul Bettany as Vision, was a substantial hit for the streaming service and a welcome addition to the Marvel universe.

Feige explained that had they progressed with the Dr. Strange look, it would have likewise demanded a reword of the script for that character’s upcoming motion picture.
