Kevin Feige warned us that the Marvel sequence on Disney+ would have implications for the better Marvel Cinematic Universe. And he is saved that promise.
On Friday, the fifth episode of “WandaVision” arrived on the streaming service, bringing with it a serious cameo that has left viewers with loads to ponder earlier than episode six arrives subsequent week. The reveal not solely has ramifications inside the sitcom-based TV present, however for the complete Marvel universe… or ought to I say multiverse.
Now can be an excellent time to look away if you have not seen the most up-to-date episode of “WandaVision.”
The fifth episode, titled “On a Very Special Episode…,” our ragtag group of FBI Agent Jimmy Woo, Dr. Darcy Lewis and Captain Monica Rambeau inch nearer to understanding the Westview anomaly.
Meanwhile, Vision, nonetheless half of the simulation, however now set in the ’80s, grows increasingly more suspicious of the world round him. Neighbors have begun to behave unusually, his twin sons age at their very own will and his spouse, Wanda, whereas trying to dismiss his considerations, solely causes them to develop.
Just as the newly minted husband and spouse are set for a superpowered argument, the doorbell rings. Wanda, confused by this twist, solutions. Standing on the entrance poor is Pietro Maximoff, simply not that Pietro Maximoff.
Elizabeth Olsen stars as Wanda Maximoff in “WandaVision” on Disney+ with particular visitor Evan Peters as Pietro Maximoff.
It’s Peter Evans, not Aaron Taylor-Johnson that seems on the different aspect of the door. The actor portrayed the mutant Quicksilver in a number of X-Men movies, which up till 2019 have been owned by 20th Century Fox.
It’s hinted that Wanda had not deliberate to convey her brother into her sitcom simulation. After all, just a few scenes prior Wanda refuses to convey her sons’ deceased pet again from the useless.
“You can fix anything mom, fix dead,” one son remarks. After declining, even nosy neighbor Agnes, who’s theorized to be pulling not less than some of the strings of Wanda’s simulation, requested if she truly may do that.
“I am trying to tell you that there are rules in life,” Wanda explains to her two boys. “We can’t just rush aging because it’s convenient and we can’t reverse death no matter how sad it makes us. Some things are forever.”
This assertion sparks two questions: Is Vision useless or has Wanda (or another person) introduced him again? And Did Wanda convey again a unique Pietro by accident or did another person?
Both will seemingly be answered earlier than the credit roll on the last episode in only a few weeks.
Already, audiences have gotten glimpses of what occurred previous to the Westview anomaly early in the episode when Wanda appeared on safety digicam footage stealing Vision’s physique from a secret lab. And there are seemingly a lot of Easter eggs but to be uncovered that present extra clues.
So, what about this new Pietro?
Before Disney acquired Fox’s leisure manufacturers in a deal value $71 billion, the two studios made an settlement. Disney may use Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, however couldn’t make reference to them being mutants or being the kids of Magneto. It’s why in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Wanda and Pietro derived their powers from an infinity stone and never genetically.
Keen viewers may need seen throughout Friday’s episode that when Tyler Hayward, the director of S.W.O.R.D., requested if Wanda had a moniker like some of the different Avengers it was mentioned that she didn’t. Wanda has by no means been known as Scarlet Witch in any of the MCU motion pictures.
As for Fox, the studio was permitted to make the most of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in its movies so long as it didn’t make any references to the Avengers. In reality, Peters’ Quicksilver goes by Peter and never Pietro.

For these unfamiliar, the Marvel multiverse is only a fancy method of saying a set of alternate universes. They are comparable in nature to one another, however have slight variations. It’s a highly regarded idea in comedian books, because it permits writers to reinvent characters and storylines for new generations.
With Wanda already confirmed as half of the Doctor Strange sequel and Doctor Strange half of “Spider-Man 3” it is no shock that Marvel is sprinkling bread crumbs early.
