The featurette opens with Vision's poignant line from WandaVision, "What is grief, if not love persevering?"

"Part of the Madness of the Multiverse is we get to see different realities," explains Feige. "And we see different versions, primarily of Doctor Strange, but we do see other versions of Wanda Maximoff."

"WandaVision was this journey of her, for the first time, taking her own life into her own hands, and it was fun transitioning from her experience to this movie," adds Olsen.

"We wanted to satisfy the WandaVision fans and take them to the next level with a character they love," reveals Raimi.

"It was fun just looking at it from a different perspective," Olsen says.

"It's magical," raves Cumberbatch. "She owns that character so well. It's a very powerful performance, with a very powerful character."

"In the Multiverse, there are alternate versions of everyone. It gives the character a unique opportunity to meet themselves, to recognize qualities that they may have been blind to," Raimi concludes.
