The witching hour isn’t over for Agatha Harkness; sources reveal that she might return in the Doctor Strange 2.
Played by Kathryn Hahn in WandaVision, Agatha Harkness was part comic relief, part horror figure.
On one hand, she was “Agnes,” the so-called “nosy neighbor” who was the CNN of suburban gossip.
With her snarky, obnoxious laugh and in-your-face personality, she is the epitome of the sitcom cliché.
She also quickly became a pop-culture icon. “Agnes” was a meme-generating machine and her song, “Agatha All Along,” topped the iTunes Soundtrack chart.
That’s quite a shocking accomplishment for a character who was simply Marvel Comics’ second most well-known old lady after Aunt May.
However, Agatha Harkness’ revelation as the primary villain of WandaVision found her in ominous terrain.
As the dog-killing witch of WandaVision, Agatha Harkness and her dark magic wasn’t the demonic Mephisto fan expected as the Big Bad.
Nevertheless, she is quite popular.
Hahn’s hilariously twisted performance created an indelible presence in the MCU, and Marvel Studios wants more.
While it may seem obvious that Agatha Harkness will return, Marvel Studios has a “one-and-done” pattern with their villains.
They could have ended her story with WandaVision on Disney Plus.

Instead, Marvel Studios will apparently promote her to a theatrical release in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
But the witch won’t be the main foe in that movie.
In fact, the villain in the Doctor Strange sequel will be more powerful.
More on that later.
And there’s another question: Is Agatha Harkness going to be a villain at all?
I’m actually hearing about a possible redemption arc for the character.
Marvel Studios has swung the gates of Hell wide open to their supernatural side.
I recently leaked discussions about a Strange Academy Disney Plus show.
Insiders said that Agatha Harkness has the potential of being part of that, perhaps as the principal.
