WandaVision ended a little over a week ago and is still getting a lot of attention on social media. The world’s most watched series ended with high expectations, some of which were met, while others found their way into the imagination of fans. One of the show’s greatest merits was fostering debate among viewers, who created several theories based on their knowledge of the comic book universe. The point is, not everyone was happy with the end result because not all of these theories can be answered. And look, they got to hit some, like Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) being the witch Agatha Harkness and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) already finishing production with their superpowers. However, they made some great trips and other theories that were so good that you can even regret that you didn’t get canon.
Thinking about it, we’ve picked out the best (or worst) theories that didn’t come to fruition! Check.
Grass is the evolutionary high
In addition to Agnes, neighbor Herb has also become the target of further speculation, as, according to fans, he could be none other than Herbert Wyndham, the High Evolutionary. In the comics, the character is a brilliant scientist who flirts between a protective figure and a complete madman. He manages to alter the DNA of living beings, to travel by dimensions and in time, in addition to being considered as the greatest geneticist of Marvel, having access to all kind of technology and having already taken care of Wanda and Pietro. Maximoff. And as it almost seems to reveal a secret about this reality to Visão in the third episode of the series, the theory seemed to gain strength. As if that wasn’t enough, he was working with Agnes – who was always about demons and obscurantism on the show. Still having Darkhold’s presence, fans pointed out that the High Evolutionary was one of those responsible for the accidental release of the demon Chthon, the creator of the Book of Sins.
Pietro was the same as in the X-Men movies
Okay, this one managed to be more absurd than the last one, but some fans still had hopes that Evan Peters’ Pietro was the same Mercury from the X-Men movies, the one who made Sweet Dreams. a success after decades. According to them, it would confirm the multiverse of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and introduce the X-Men we already know in history. How would he appear? Using Wanda’s chaotic powers, why. If the Mutants reached the MCU this way, besides being forced, it would be a mess worthy of the FOX mutant timeline, luckily it didn’t materialize and Pietro Falso ended up being just an actor. manipulated by Agatha Harkness to spoil the young woman’s feelings with the witch.
Monica’s contact was Reed Richards
Since losing the role of Captain America to Chris Evans, John Krasinski has become a fan favorite to discover theaters’ new Mr. Fantastic / Reed Richards. And look, it started over ten years ago. And as Marvel responded to fan requests by calling Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange, hopes of seeing him on paper grew somewhat. In addition, they also ask that John’s wife Emily Blunt be the Invisible Woman / Sue Storm. Either way, on the home stretch of the series, Monica is dating Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) to find a “secret contact” who is said to be an aerospace engineer. Okay, if you’ve seen the series dubbed in Portuguese, I knew from the start that there was no way it was Reed because the dub made it clear that he was an engineer. However, since a profession does not have a gender variation in English, the sex of the engineer was not known. It was from there that a much-talked-about theory emerged that the secret contact could be Reed Richards already experienced by Krasinski, bringing the Fantastic Four into the MCU. The catch is, like the FOX X-Men, it would be kind of forced to play the existing Quartet in this universe without having participated in anything before.
Director Hayward was rebuilding Ultron
Okay, there are two variations of this theory. One was quite plausible, while the other was fully covered. The first was that director Hayward (Josh Stamberg) used the destroyed body of Vision (Paul Bettany) to rebuild Ultron (James Spader). And since the evil robot’s head was seen preserved in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), the theory was legitimized by the comics, and his “consciousness” may well have been stored there. The other theory, which was ridiculously absurd, claimed that the director of SWORD was none other than Ultron himself in disguise and was there to take revenge on the Avengers. This would supposedly explain his hatred for superheroes. Gee, guys, everything has a limit, right? Also in this aspect of “director Hayward hiding who he is”, there was an interesting theory that he could be a Skrull. As he ended the series in prison, it is not possible to say that this one is or is not pierced, so we will leave him hanging until future events. Either way, Ultron doesn’t appear in the series, and Hayward was actually building a robot out of Visão’s corpse… O Visão Branco.
The villain was the demon Mephisto
This theory has convinced millions of supporters around the world, including me. This is because the demon is an important part of Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) stories in the comics, including being a central character in the issue of the Scarlet Witch’s children’s emergence, as she sucks on pieces. from the soul of Mephisto to generate the children. Later, when he recovers, he ends up absorbing the boys and fights with them in the underworld. Losing children, Wanda panics and changes reality. Seen this way, it fits the theme of the series well. According to the theory, Agatha would work to free him and touch the terror around. Additionally, the threat would lead Doctor Strange to Westview. There was even a rumor that the demon would be played by Al Pacino. But now that the series is over, it’s really something that would hamper Wanda’s personal journey and take away a lot of the protagonism so well-built for her throughout the series.
Which of these theories do you think would come true? Tell us in the comments!
