WandaVision Episode 6 nods at X-men – preparing for mutants (Spoilers)

This weeks episode of WandaVision has a few quite apparent easter eggs from the X-men franchise – and a hilarious nod to the Kick-Ass franchise by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr that was once published by Marvel (even if the movies was branded through Marv Films and distributed by Lionsgate). Let’s take a look at the first most obvious easter eggs, while waiting for a further bunch of fan breakdowns, during this weekend.

While the show proceeds, there’s some shorter moments which opens up for both screaming hardcore fans and in fact reintroducing Maximoffs parents – and with that also Magneto (even if Irina and Oleg was considered Maximoff’s “parents” in episode 5).

Besides that, X-men has a smaller pre-introducing reference where Pietro mentions the “old XY chromosome” (more considered as the x-gene).

Clearly, this moment nods to the whole X-men franchise which will probably be imported through the multiverse.
A possible Magneto and Magda Eisenhardt reference (not Irina and Oleg Maximoff that was first referenced in episode 5).

Evan Peters had a role in Kick-Ass as Todd Haynes which is being brought up in this episode.

When will hell break loose in WandaVision?

During the last update of the MCU timeline, I’ve been trying to pre-set the upcoming decade-titling, out from what we’ve seen and read about the sitcom eras this far. With some help from articles where Paul Bettany reveals that WandaVision will be paying homage to virtually every decade of TV sitcoms: “It’s ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and all of it,” he said. “We end up in the MCU, in the real world.” there should be a last sitcom episode in the 2000-era at the 6th episode – since the first predicition of the old “WandaVision will be 6 episodes long.

With this guessing game, the timeline at mcu.earth616.org has also been updated with the exciting information below. After episode 6, we should’ve kept up with the real MCU reality at 2023. As Marvel and the crew also already mentioned a “full MCU action series” there might be some kind of guarantee, that we at this point will be quite familiar with the prior “MCU style movies” again (for those who can’t stand the current format, and still don’t understand what Marvel means).

From todays date we have only three episodes left before episode 6. Since we already know that Geraldine mentioned Ultron killing Pietro, hell will probably break loose very soon when they realize that they are trapped in a world of Wanda. With “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” around the corner, I’d like – with carefulness – predict a handover to that series at some point of the last episodes of WandaVision too. So we, for sure, don’t have to wait until the last episode for this. It’s recommended to follow Emergency Awesome and New Rockstar, since they are deeply analyzing the episodes with predictions like above.

Last but not least, Emergency Awesome has also recently posted a breakdown and easter-egg video for WandaVision “new mutant characters” here.
