A new stunt sequence from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness depicts an even bloodier brawl between Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and the soldiers at Kamar-Taj.

The brief sequence is rehearsed entirely by stunt performers but edited with mild special effects, taking place near the beginning of the film when Wanda invades Kamar-Taj.

During the fight, Wanda decapitates a soldier and uses her powers to puppeteer him and make him fight the other soldiers. It's quite creepy, and we definitely understand why certain things were taken out of the film's final cut in order to keep a PG-13 rating.

VFX supervisor Erik Winquist previously revealed to IndieWire (opens in new tab) that his team wanted to "push the gross-out factor" of Zombie Strange and include a moment where he "hurls his undead arm at the Scarlet Witch in an attempt to strangle her."
