The MCU Just Introduced A Way To Bring Back Scarlet Witch

  • Agatha's new show could lead to Wanda Maximoff's return to the land of the living.
  • The Witches' Road offers a chance to explore chaos magic in the MCU, and also resurrect the Scarlet Witch.
  • Agatha All Along's "mysterious goth teen" is likely a reincarnation of Wanda's son, Billy Kaplan aka Wiccan.
The MCU has just introduced a way to bring back Wanda Maximoff's Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). As seen in the first trailer for Agatha All Along, the titular witch played by Kathryn Hahn will finally be breaking free from the spell Wanda placed on her at the end of 2021's WandaVision. Now, Agatha's new mission could very well lead to Wanda's return to the land of the living.
As seen in 2022's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Scarlet Witch gave her life to make up for all the chaos and destruction she'd brought in her uncompromising mission to be reunited with her children Billy and Tommy. Now, it seems as though Wanda's death created the means for Agatha to break free from her spell-bound prison in Agatha All Along where she'd been made to believe she was simply a nosy neighbor living in Westview. Looking to build a coven to join her on the "Witches' Road", Agatha's new journey could lead to the Scarlet Witch's eventual resurrection.

The Witches' Road In Marvel Comics Explained A Special Plane Of Existence For Marvel Sorcerers Close As seen in the brand-new trailer for Agatha All Along, the titular witch is seen recruiting various others to join her on the "Witches' Road", a path that Patti Lupone's Lilia Calderu refers to as a "death wish". Providing a means to seemingly restore her power that was taken by Wanda, Agatha looks determined to venture into this new realm for the MCU. Additionally, the Witches' Road does have a fascinating history in the original Marvel Comics as well.
The Witches' Road first appeared in Marvel Comics in 2016's Scarlet Witch solo series by James Robinson and Chris Visions, particularly in its fourth issue. Seeking to discover the source of a new sickness within witchcraft itself, Wanda and the spirit of a deceased Agatha travel the Witches' Road, revealed to be a plane of existence reserved only for sorcerers and practitioners of magic. It's also filled with all sorts of dangerous magical threats and powerful creatures to face. As such, the Witches' Road is the perfect realm to make its introduction in this new show all about Agatha and her fellow MCU witches set to become a new coven.
How Marvel Can Use The Witches' Road To Bring Back Scarlet Witch Flipping The Comics Arc That Brought Back Agatha Marvel Studios' plot synopsis for Agatha All Along reveals quite a bit about the MCU's version of the Witches' Road:
In “Agatha All Along,” the infamous Agatha Harkness finds herself down and out of power after a suspicious goth Teen helps break her free from a distorted spell. Her interest is piqued when he begs her to take him on the legendary Witches’ Road, a magical gauntlet of trials that, if survived, rewards a witch with what they’re missing. Together, Agatha and this mysterious Teen pull together a desperate coven, and set off down, down, down The Road…
While it seems obvious that Agatha is willing to go down the Road to restore her missing power, the real question is who Joe Locke's "mysterious goth Teen" truly is, and why he wants her to take him down the Road as well. Based on his appearance in the trailer and one shot in particular where he's wearing a red shirt and blue headband, it does seem as though this is a teenage version of Billy Kaplan, one of Wanda and Vision's reincarnated sons who becomes the magical hero named Wiccan in the comics.This would certainly fit with Billy's reincarnation origins from the comics after Wanda lost both her sons on the page, mirroring the similar loss of her boys in the MCU. Likewise, perhaps Billy's motives behind freeing Agatha and requesting her help with the Witches' Road surround a hope to bring Wanda back from the dead. It's certainly possible considering that the comics' primary Witches' Road arc did see Agatha herself returning to the land of the living. Agatha All Along could easily flip the script where Wanda's the one who's now dead and stands a chance at resurrection via this magical new plane of existence.

How The Witches' Road Can Further Explain Chaos Magic In The MCU Chaos Magic Can Truly Be Explored The Witches' Road is also an exciting opportunity to further explore the concept of chaos magic in the MCU. A unique source of magical energy that Wanda was able to tap into as the prophesied nexus being known as the Scarlet Witch, Wanda's Witches' Road arc in the comics did help flesh out the underlying principles and concepts regarding her chaos magic on the page. To that end, it would make sense if the MCU ends up using Agatha All Along and the Witches' Road to continue developing what chaos magic truly is and how it operates on the screen.
