The demise of Scarlet Witch at the end of 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness', however, does not completely shut the door on a potential return of Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff.

AceShowbiz - MCU has finally set things straight. After months of speculation and debate about the fate of Scarlet Witch following her appearance in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", she's now confirmed to be dead.

Marvel Studios ends the debate regarding Scarlet Witch's fate in the newly-released "The Marvel Cinematic Universe: An Official Timeline" book. According to the book, the mutant died at the end of the 2022 movie when she sacrificed herself for the greater good.

"[Wanda] destroys Wundagore - and collapses it upon herself - ending two great threats to all of the Multiverse," reads a passage in the book. The death of Scarlet Witch is listed among key events that take place in Fall 2024 alongside other events from "Multiverse of Madness.

While many fans have since mourned the demise of Scarlet Witch, a reliable scooper suggests she simply "ended the threat that she herself posed, NOT herself." Previously, it was said that the hero's fate will be addressed in a Special Presentation tied to "Agatha: Coven of Chaos" a.k.a. "Agatha: Darkhold Diaries" that's partially based on "The Witches' Road" storyline.

The death of Scarlet Witch, however, won't shut the door on a potential return of Elizabeth Olsen's character. As another movie blogger notes, "There is always the multiverse but the MCU Official Timeline book says this version is dead."

Indeed, in "Multiverse of Madness", there are two Wanda Maximoffs from different universes. The book says, "As the kindly 838-Wanda gathers the boys and assures the heartbroken Scarlet Witch they will be loved, the Wanda Maximoff of Universe-616 surrenders."

Besides solving the question regarding Scarlet Witch's fate, the book also fixes the timeline error that 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" made following the flashback sequence at the beginning of the movie. The opening scene of "Homecoming" takes place immediately following the Battle of New York in "The Avengers" in 2012. The movie then shows an "8 Years Later" timecard, incorrectly placing the main events of Homecoming in 2020.

The book erases the eight-year time jump as it confirms that the opening flashback scene takes place in Spring 2012 while the rest of the movie unfolds in Fall 2016, which means that the movie only transitions four years from the opening scene.
