In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many superheroes stood toe-to-toe with Thanos, but not a single one was able to defeat him one-on-one. As it turns out, there is one who could have stopped the Mad Titan once and for all -- if she'd had a little bit more time, that is. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
"Well, we got a Falcon and Winter Soldier show, we got a WandaVision show," Feige told ComicBook.com. "We’re introducing Monica Rambeau in that WandaVision show... Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power -- I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done -- so her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way."
In Avengers: Endgame, Wanda Maximoff went after Thanos because he killed Vision. Scarlet Witch used the full might of her powers, and it eventually seemed too much for Thanos. The only reason he was able to get away was because he called in for reinforcements, ordering his ship to fire on the battlefield -- and his own troops.
Currently, there are very little details known about the upcoming Disney+ television series, WandaVision. Feige recently said that the series "will be unlike anything we've done before" and that it will tie into the events of the upcoming Doctor Stange in the Mutliverse of Madness.
