This last weekend Earth-616 were moving to a new home – not virtually, but physically (a new apartmant). We had a short downtime, and unfortunately we’ve been busy with reconnecting ourselves to the feeds we monitor. Meanshile, during saturday and sunday both Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars released a few videos for Episode 7 (Breaking the fourth wall).
The title makes me think of Deadpool by the way. However, since we’ve lost a few days here’s a few links to the latest breakdowns. Now, we have quite a bit of material to keep up with.
A few days ago Collider uploaded an interview with WandaVision Director Matt Shakman. Overall, the interview is interesting even though that Matt is very good not telling any secrets. One question asked regarding a prior post here, is whether there might be a second season with WandaVision. The answer is that he actually don’t know but we do know that WandaVision will be tied in directly with Doctor Strange 2. With this knowledge, we still say that WandaVision has no intentions to become a second season.
Erik Voss and New Rockstars are mentioning in a video about the WandaVision commercials (video also below) and says that the “sitcom commercial breaks” represents Wandas past trauma. That also makes us believe that this really is a one-season series.
This morning our feeds started to pop up questions about a season 2 of WandaVision. Whether this is true or not is unsure, but regarding some sites fans are “still unsure if WandaVision will return“ for a second season and some of the medias that’s rumouring this, falsely tries to consider this already confirmed. Actually, they are already asking for the cast and a third season.
During an interview with Collider, Olsen said that WandaVision “could” possibly get renewed for a second season, but since this Disney+ series is supposed to initiate events for Phase 4, we currently see it unlikely that another season is far from possible. Especially since the current series is based on the aftermath of Endgame and Vision’s death.
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).
The most interesting clue in the last episode of WandaVision is something that was mentioned in the New Rockstars breakdown recently. Some people may think that the aerospace engineer could be a nod to Fantastic Four, but as a hispanic subtitle translation refers the aerospace engineer to a female character this could have another final clue.
Who do you think this might be? One very wild guess could be leading us directly to one of Monica Rambeau’s allies from Captain Marvel.
When Jimmy Woo (played by Randall Park) presented himself in Episode 4, Marvel did a scene that was nodding back to Ant-Man and The Wasp. Basically, that scene made many Marvel-fans go crazy. And sometimes, I’d admin, easter eggs are made for just nodding back to something. However, is that kind of easter egg covered by this one too?
As WandaVision Episode 4 progressing, we will soon get a notification via the board Woo is writing on that they may suspect Skrull involvement. This makes my go thinking if there are more movies signed with Randall Park (except the Ant-Man and The Wasp sequel).
This might be a long shot for the upcoming series Secret Invasion and related films, and currently just a theory: Could this card trick have a key role in future films too? Some breakdowns from Emergency Awesome mentions this, while talking about eventual Doctor Strange cameos during WandaVision. But, what if there’s further more? Let’s just say that there’s an ongoing Skrull invasion, and the Skrulls has short term memory. If we see Randall Park in future Marvel movies, this could be the perfect way to identify him as the real Jimmy Woo.
In the last episode breakdown from New Rockstars, occuring dates is covered in a video section. According to our recent information at the MCU timeline, Spider-Man: Far From Home now have a more accurate year set. As we follow WandaVision Episode 4, Monica Rambeau is one of many that disappeared with Thanos first snap and now returning to real life again. Episode 4 also sums up the rest of the Endgame to the confirmed five years: Maria Rambeau died two years after Monica disappeared, three years later the blip occurs – which gives us the five years from Infinity War.
Information that is followed also tells us that WandaVision occurs three weeks after Endgame, which fits very well with Hulk’s unsnap and we will in this case land in october-november 2023. Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Parkers trip, then occurs summer 2024.
The Nick Fury post credits in Spider-Man: Far from home occurs eight months after Endgame.
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.
