The Wasp Was Originally in “The Multiverse of Madness”

For an additional charge, streaming services Disney Plus, Google Play, and Prime Video all began streaming the MCU’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” 

We now know more information about how the Doctor Strange sequel was written thanks to the audio commentary included in the digital edition of the film. It turns out that the Wasp from “Ant-Man” first appeared in the screenplay as a member of the Illuminati, who was later going to be killed by Wanda. 

The writer Michael Waldron said “I was just trying to get through the first draft of the script desperately in August of 2020. Didn’t really have a second half of the second act and had no idea where the hell I was going. And I just thought, ‘Well, why don’t I take a swing and drop the Illuminati in there?”
