Rumor has it that Wanda Maximoff is finally getting her own movie and according to tipsters, it's set to be announced at the Marvel Studios SDCC panel. Actress Elizabeth Olsen has previously claimed that she's still uncertain about her MCU future but seeing as the Scarlet Witch seemingly "faked" her death in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, all signs point to her eventual comeback.

Now, with SDCC kicking off the festivities, fans of the beloved Marvel character have "hijacked" the geek extravaganza by launching their own celebration that is centered on the Harbinger of Chaos. In fact, "WandaCon" has been trending on Twitter over the last couple of days as fans await major announcements regarding her future.
