There is, literally, a Marvel comic about Wanda and Vision, called Wandavision.

Agnes is Loki.

 


That you just imagined? I’ve never seen a WandaVision comic and can’t see any reference to one online. 
 

The show seems to be vaguely related to Tom King’s run on Vision (which doesn’t feature Wanda), and also people are speculating that maybe it’s a bit like House of M, which it really isn’t. It features a plot line from the eighties Scarlett Witch and Vision comic but doesn’t fit into that in any other way. It’s literally a completely new story with one or two elements from unconnected comics, much like all of the Marvel movies.

@Broker It would appear you are correct, there is no specific Wandavision comic (I haven't read a Marvel comic since pre-puberty) but I could have sworn I'd read about and seen reference to Marvel comics regarding Wand and Vision, and one specifically called Wandavision. Oh well.

Without the mind stone he’s not really Vision - the computer part is there but what made him appear human is gone - Wanda is obviously filling in the blanks from what she wants him to be but the logical part of the machine is what’s fighting for control and reality. 

 

Spoiler

I guess so. In Endgame Banner says he's made up of Jarvis, Banner, Stark, Ultron and the mind stone. I guess because he's dead there's nothing left of anything and he's an entire fabrication. But I'd he's a fabrication of Wanda in his entirety how is he 'rebelling' against Wanda's will?

Spoiler

I guess because she knows (consciously or not) that that's what the real him would do? Which would mean she's being sort-of self-sabotaging, albeit via a layer of abstraction. Not intentionally, just she didnt think that far ahead. Perhaps she could have imagined a more pliable vision but would be ultimately unsatisfied, or perhaps she doesnt have that degree of control?

 

Maybe it's like when Vis was first created. She can breath life into him with her witchy powers, but he started out with enough a degree of autonomy and powers, that he is able to gradually build on that over time. By the time he's self-aware / powerful enough to be a problem, it's too late to do much about it?

Can anyone explain the significance in the latest episode of

the clothes being made partly of kevlar? I didn't really follow why that was important, nor why it meant they could fly a drone into the town.

As I understand it Wanda (or maybe 'other')uses whatever materials are available and restructures them into whatever time period she's in with the sitcom. 

 

The drone was 80s tech and therefore not rendered immediately useless by being from the wrong era

Spoiler

Wanda stealing Vision’s dead body and reanimated it - so that flash of him all grey with his forehead caved in is the reality behind her illusion - is some fucked up shit. That bit gave some of my mate’s kids nightmares.

It’s what the agent was wearing when she entered the town, and it was reconstituted because it didn’t fit. But the underlying material didn’t get changed.

Wild speculation:

SWORD runs manned space missions. Monica knows a aerodynamic engineering expert who specialises in radiation shielding.

 

It can’t be Reed Richards, can it?

 


You’re not the first to suggest it.

Out of interest, during the credits where Disney+ recommend something else to watch, is everyone being recommended Age of Ultron? 

 

Just wondering if that's Marvel doing something meta as well, particularly with the speculation that

Ultron

may be somewhat involved. 


Ive had it every week so far.

If Wanda is able to alter the nature of things that enter her reality, what could she potentially do to the people that enter it...?

 

Spoiler

Well that’s going to make it easier if the ever need to recast somebody again.

I'm sure they'll be a follow up to her taking his body, where she takes his downloaded mind from Wakanda and puts him back together, Frankenstein style.

Nobody else seems to have mentioned when Wanda got her old accent back.


I’m pretty sure Feige has said before that she was putting on the American accent so the avengers accepted her.

No, what?

Interestingly, the description specified that he is “the quicksilver from the xmen movies”

This topic is full of spoiler tags it makes reading and catching up on comments annoying. Do we really need them? If you come in here without watching the most recent episode more fool you.

 

Anyway, I have a theory and I will spoiler it until a mod says we don't need any

 

What if Wanda turns into 

Spoiler

Mephisto, and rather than he being the literal villain of the TV show its actually leading to her turning into that character and she becomes the big bad of the next phase.

 

They made that joke near the start about her not having a nickname like other superheros because she's never been referred to as Scartlett Witch in the MCU, but maybe that's also because they want to don her a different name....Mephisto.

Yeah, what Feige said is that rather than having lost her accent in the movies after AOU because it made it easier for people to understand her, the character in universe was putting on an American accent to blend in more with both American society and the avengers. So she’s always still had the accent, she’s just been hiding it. It makes sense in that case that she would continue to put it on in the sitcom reality where the accent would be out of place, but gives no shots about putting it on when she’s angry in the latest episode.

I think AoU turning up in recommendations is just an algorithm thing. It turned up in my 'watch next' queue for the last two weeks.


I’m rewatching phase one and it recommends it after every movie. I do think it’s interesting that it’s always that one though. I’m guessing it’s to promote WandaVision, they’re thinking that if people are watching it they’ll be more likely to want to watch AOU, and if they watch AOU they’ll be more likely to want to watch the show.

This thread reminds of season 2 of RTD’s Doctor Who when people were assuming every guest actor was the Master or the the Rani.

 

This thread is very sane in its conjecture compared to others on the internet.
