( Major spoilers ahead for the first 2 episode of the first Marvel TV series, “WandaVision”)
It’s not a Marvel Cinematic Universe job if you’re not right away bouncing theories off of good friends or asking a concern about something that wasn’t explained. The very first two episodes of “WandaVision” have finally premiered on Disney , and naturally, there are a lot of questions to unload. Namely … what the heck is going on in Westview?! (And does Westview even actually exist?)
What in fact is this place Wanda and Vision are stuck in?
The rural town of Westview is apparently an idyllic, quiet town where Wanda and Vision have selected to settle and live out their lives. Possible explanations for Westview’s existence consist of a warped reality in Wanda’s mind that she’s developed to block out the injury she’s experienced in the MCU or a government-controlled experiment.
It’s simple to forget, after Wanda invested the last few films mainly just using her powers to pound bad people, that she also has mind powers. She can check out individuals’s thoughts and influence them, as we saw her do a bunch of times in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” He brainpowers, which are derived from the very same Mind Stone that brought Vision to life, are more than efficient in building this world in her mind– or in someone else’s.
On top of all that: why would it be a sitcom?
How is Vision even alive?
The sentient android, who we first met in 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” met his regrettable end at the hands of Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War.” Tony Stark’s sacrifice in “Endgame” undid Thanos’ snap and brought back the 50%of the population that disappeared for five years, Vision stayed dead. Either because his main source of life was among the 6 Infinity Stones, or due to the fact that he was eliminated prior to The Snap (Tony just restored those snapped out of presence). How is he in Westview, living a delighted married life? The most obvious guess is that this is a truth constructed in Wanda’s mind, comparable to the Home of M comic storyline
Given that it feels so exceptionally not likely that this show is occurring in actual truth, it would then likewise seem unlikely that Vision is truly “alive” again. But till we know what’s actually going on here, it is difficult to hypothesize on whether this story will lead to Vision’s return in movies.
Why are Wanda and Vision even there?
This is, we think, the real main question of this story. While it seems very likely that this whole world is some kind of psychological construct, the more intriguing secret is the why of it. Did Wanda do this to herself? Is another group– the folks apparently enjoying on monitors from the outdoors– accountable for it? And what’s the function of it? What those accountable trying to get out of it? There will undoubtedly be some sort of big expose down the line.
What’s SWORD got to finish with it?
Assuming you watched the first episodes of “WandaVision” on Disney , you definitely saw that red toy helicopter with an odd sword logo on the side. That’s the logo for a company called S.W.O.R.D., which is generally a deep space variation of S.H.I.E.L.D., meant to defend Earth from alien hazards.
Possibly more pertinent to this discussion is that S.W.O.R.D. was created for “X-Men” comics, and the organization’s history is quite well tied to that of mutants.
A larger concern, maybe: is S.W.O.R.D. managing this simulation, or are they attempting to help her escape from it? If it’s the latter, then there most likely is another, as-yet-unrevealed celebration involved in all this.
Why did a beekeeper climb out of the sewage system?
This person had a S.W.O.R.D. logo on the back of his fit, so his loyalty is quite clear.
This person is probably not a substantial Marvel character on his own, though. The program credits stuntman Zac Henry as the beekeeper, and it’s not super most likely that they’re going to provide him a starring role.
Who is Agnes?
What’s up with those fake commercials?
” WandaVision” took its comedy homages seriously, and that includes 50’s and 60’s style commercials. However why include them in the show, besides to add another layer of accuracy and detail? They all feature winking easter eggs varying from Stark Industries to Hydra, which is enjoyable on its own … will they ultimately come together to suggest something more?
What takes place when Vision consumes other things?
In the second episode, we saw what happens when Vision eats a piece of gum, swallowing it by mishap. It remained lodged in his body, affecting his motions. (He is an android, after all.) Vision informs Wanda in the first episode that he does not eat food, and the gum event appears to affirm why. The gum only incapacitated him a little, it didn’t precisely hurt him. What takes place when he consumes other food? Does it affect his inner-workings the very same way? Does it have no affect at all?
What was up with that red helicopter?
Wanda discovers a curious red toy helicopter in her front bushes, however it’s a mystery where it’s from.
While we have no idea what the significance of the little helicopter is, the number 57 might be a meta-nod to the reality that Scarlet Witch was initially introduced in the comics in 1964– 57 years ago. However it certainly could have some in fact plot significance as well.
Who was that voice on the radio?
At one point throughout the 2nd episode, a radio begins spitting out distorted noises prior to a voice begins calling out to Wanda. “Who’s doing this to you, Wanda?” Might be a S.W.O.R.D. individual, or possibly an MCU character we already understand– the voice is distorted, so it’s tough to tell.
How is Wanda pregnant?
It’s probably simply an example of “WandaVision” doing a sitcom story, with the simulation merely making it happen since it’s expected to. It’s still pretty weird!
Why do Westview locals keep shouting “for the children”?
We do have one concept, however, which you can check out here
