The expectations for Scarlet Witch were off the charts. In the comic books, she was powerful enough to take on anyone, and this seems to be no different in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When she debuted in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we saw that she capable of taking over the minds of everyone, from mortals to gods. In Avengers: Endgame, we saw she was powerful enough to put fear into the Mad Titan Thanos, something not even the combined might of Thor, Iron Man and Captain America could do. While she was fighting Thanos, there was also this familiar look of insanity in Wanda’s eyes, which was reminiscent of the comic books.

During an event called Avengers: Disassembled, Wanda lost control of her powers. In this arc, she killed Scott Lang, Hawkeye, and her husband, Vision. She also put Wasp in the hospital. Wanda could do this once again if (and most likely when) something terrible happens to her.
Avengers: Disassembled is a title we could definitely see in the future. The name alone would get people intrigued. If Marvel Studios follows the comics, the results would shock people more than what Thanos did in Avegners: Infinity War. Since Wanda is so powerful, it wouldn’t be shocking to see her take on all of the Avengers by herself. Her potential is through the roof.
