‘WandaVision: The Art of the Series’ Reveals First Look At Unused Scarlet Witch Designs
There are few characters as important to Marvel’s Phase Four as Wanda Maximoff, and with her final evolution coming in the finale of her solo series, Marvel has just debuted unused Scarlet Witch Designs in their recently released WandaVision: The Art of the Series.
One of the coolest things about the ever-evolving MCU is easily the brilliance that is seemingly in every single design choice for every single series.
It has become a staple of the Marvel process to be focused on every design element in the setting, the background, the costumes, and the characters themselves.
With the recent development of Marvel’s Disney+ series, that focus has reached a new level, with many characters not just being explored in two-hour films, but instead being placed as the central focus of a six-episode arc.
Marvel answered this ambitious task with an ever apparent renewed focus on design; with the brilliant work in Loki, WandaVision, and others proving that the MArvel quality wouldn’t be sacrificed for the long-form nature of these new endeavors.
And it is in these Disney+ series that Marvel fans finally saw that brilliant work come to fruition in the fantastic design of the Scarlet Witch, character fans have been clamoring for quite some time.
The look that was birthed out of the MCU makes the character one of the most recognizable heroes, but it has recently been revealed that there were several unused Scarlet Witch designs that didn’t make the final series.
Recently shown in the WandaVision: The Art of the Series book, fans got to see various iterations of the now-iconic final design; many of which are just as incredible as the final product.

The classic red crown is maintained in many, some designs using it as a fiery metaphysical addition, with others opting to make it actually sit atop her head.
With the comic book designs the WandaVision look is referencing, and the character’s powers, the series designers were free to use their imagination when crafting the incredible look of the final series.
