2022 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a weird movie in many ways, most of it concerning how it treated Wanda Maximoff and her after-life character.Wanda Vision. A distinct part of the movie that wowed audiences as a second-act digression into an alternate universe home to the Illuminati, which featured surprise returning cameos for Marvel alumni like Patrick Stewart’s Professor X and Haley Atwell’s Peggy Carter . The latter was the Captain Britain of this world, a variant first introduced in And if… ? just a year prior, but before the public could truly grasp this, Peggy and most of the Illuminati were wiped out by Wanda.
It’s surprisingly dark and mean-spirited fanservice, and if you weren’t a fan of that detour, then Atwell shares your sentiment. While promoting Mission: Esteem impossible, she admitted on the Happy Sad Confused podcast that it was a “frustrating time” to be called upon to get Darth Maul with his own weapon. “I’m like, ‘That wasn’t my choice!'” she said. “When she was like, ‘I could do this all day,’ and then she was immediately cut in half by a frisbee. And the audience was like, ‘She can’t do this all day. Apparently, you don’t can’t, so an egg on your face. It really doesn’t serve Peggy very well.”
