It was business as (almost) usual in the latest episode of WandaVision, as Jac Schaefer’s trippy TV spectacular returned to its sitcom-of-the-week formula. After Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda went full Scarlet Witch, and Paul Bettany’s Vision realized all is not well in Westview, the episode ended with the jaw-dropping appearance of the X-men version of Pietro Maximoff. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was swapped out with Evan Peters, meaning we’re closer than ever to bringing the X-Men to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The return of Wanda’s dead brother – albeit in a different form – could have huge ramifications for the MCU, with the rogue Avenger seemingly setting up her own marionette show of dead favorites. It’s clear we’re hurtling toward the Multiverse faster than Quicksilver himself – but has WandaVision “attracted” another big cameo from X-Men future past?
Eagle-eyed fans spotted a potential Easter egg to a certain Master of Magnetism hidden in February 5’s ‘On a Very Special Episode’. One scene featured Wanda stepping out of Westview to confront Tyler Hayward and deliver a warning to the SWORD director.
Some clocked that the moment Wanda used her powers to turn Hayward’s own men on him echoed a similar scene with Michael Fassbender’s Magneto in Dark Phoenix. Whether intentional or not, there’s a poignant moment of “like father, like daughter”.
