After living through different decades with Marvel’s most “unusual couple,” WandaVision has come to an end after 9 astounding episodes. The finale answered questions asked throughout the series but left room for more questioning to be explored. From Wanda Maximoff becoming “The Scarlet Witch” to Monica Rambeau acquiring powers, here’s everything WandaVision could have set up as Marvel’s Cinematic Universe moves into its phase 4.
Not the Last We See of The Scarlet Witch
Early into WandaVision production, Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) confirmed that WandaVision will directly tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlett Witch/Wanda Maximoff is set to play a big role in the sequel alongside Doctor Stephen Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch.
The final post-credits scene of WandaVision depicts an isolated Wanda in a mountainous region drinking tea, all while her astral body is flipping through “The Darkhold,” or “Book of the Dammed.” Interestingly, Strange also practices astral projection during his training at Kamar Taj in Doctor Strange. It is unknown if Wanda or Strange will work together or against each other in the Doctor Strange sequel.
The director of the Disney+ series, Matt Shakman, confirms there is more to Wanda than we know. “There’s a lot more to her story to be told, so this is only one part of a very complicated and very rich life,” Shakman revealed. Olsen tells MTV that Wanda is “doing great” as filming continues in England for Doctor Strange 2 and describes both her and Cumberbatch’s characters as having an “evolution” since WandaVision.
Where are the Twins after The Hex disappears?
In the comics, Billy and Tommy’s souls are reincarnated through different parents and eventually join the Young Avengers. During the second post-credit scene, the twins are heard calling for their mother’s help, suggesting that they may still exist somewhere in a different universe or realm.
Only 2 more sleeps until a new episode of @wandavision? Are you as excited as us???#WandaVision #BillyandTommy #BillyMaximoff #TommyMaximoff #WandaMaximoff #TheVision #Marvel #MCU #JulianHilliard #JettKlyne pic.twitter.com/4joYLL875o— Julian Hilliard (@_JulianHilliard) February 17, 2021
The return of Billy and Tommy’s actors Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne, respectively, doesn’t seem to be completely off the table. Back in November, both actors were seen in London, in now-deleted Instagram posts, around the time Doctor Strange 2 began filming. So there’s a high chance this isn’t the last time we see the twins back in action.
WandaVision Could Set Up The Young Avengers
Though it is not confirmed as a series or movie yet, Marvel has already cast most members of the Young Avengers before our eyes. In the comics, Billy and Tommy/Wiccan and Speed are members of the Young Avengers and they’ve already been introduced in WandaVision with their powers.
Other members in the group are Kate Bishop who will appear in Hawkeye on Disney+, played by Hailee Steinfeld. America Chavez, played by Xochitl Gomez, will appear in Doctor Strange 2. Cassie Lang (now played by Kathryn Newton), who we know as Scott Lang’s daughter, will return in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. She becomes Stature in the Young Avengers comics.
Rumored to star in the upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Elijah Richardson is said to play Eli Bradley/Patriot — another member of the Young Avengers. Kevin Feige has not confirmed anything in development for them but it’s very possible later down the line in the MCU, the new generation of heroes could assemble.
Big Reunion for Captain Marvel Sequel
Teyonah Parris‘ (Monica Rambeau) role in the upcoming Captain Marvel 2 film, was solidified in WandaVision. From losing her mother to cancer to finding her inner hero, the series set up her role to take on space and reunite with “an old friend” in the next Captain Marvel installment. At least that what fans can expect from Rambeau, after a post-credit scene, in the final episode of WandaVision, explains the fate of the S.W.O.R.D. agent.
In the aftermath of the events in Westview, Rambeau is requested inside the town’s movie theatre. There, a skull acting as a S.W.O.R.D. agent reveals to her that an old friend of her mothers would like to meet with her, signaling upwards. This implies that Nick Fury, who we see hanging out in space at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, could be soliciting her assistance in space. Rambeau, who has developed powers after entering ‘the hex’, could come face to face with her “auntie” Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel 2.
So far, it’s confirmed that Megan McDonnell (WandaVision writer) will write the script and Candyman director, Nia DaCosta, will direct the film. As for the skulls, it could hint at their appearance in the future Disney+ series, Secret Invasion.
Mutants Join the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Early fan theories heavily suggested that WandaVision would introduce the X-Men into the MCU. The appearance of Evan Peters acting at first as “Pietro Maximoff” implied the existence of a multiverse, given that his version of “Pietro”/Quicksilver already exists in Fox’s X-Men universe as Peter Maximoff.
The Disney-Fox merger seemed like a no-brainer that the X-Men could be easily transitioned into the MCU through Quicksilver. As clever as the fan theories were, WandaVision put an end to them all. In the final episode, it’s revealed that Peters was playing a random civilian by the name of Ralph Bohner, who was under Agatha Harkness’ control while in ‘the hex’.
All hope isn’t gone, however. The Illuminerdi reports the MCU is developing a movie by the title of The Mutants. “It’ll be a while. It’s all just beginning and the five-year plan that we’ve been working on,” Kevin Feige said in 2019 regarding the X-Men, “So really it’s much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [the X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how nice it is that they’re home. That they’re all back. But it will be a very long time.”
