WandaVision: all the easter eggs of the first two episodes

WandaVision: all the easter eggs of the first two episodes
WandaVision arrived on Disney + very recently, but among fans it is already hunting for easter eggs and hidden references to the comic universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Who writes to you, as a great fan of the characters and the narrative universe in which they move, could not fail to join the hunt. So here are some little hidden gems in the first two episodes of the series.

ATTENTION: The following contains a series of important spoilers on the first two episodes of WandaVision

Let's start with the obvious…

How is it possible that Wanda and Vision are married? And how is it possible that they find themselves protagonists of a sit-com? And above all, how did Vision come back to life, killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War? These questions are the basis of all the doubts and speculations of the entire series. It is likely that all, in reality, is an illusion hatched by Wanda's mind and powers to soothe the pain of the death of her beloved spouse. But how aware is Scarlet herself of her actions?

A special day

All the misunderstanding comedy of the first episode is based on Wanda and Vision on neither remembering why the date of August 23 is marked on the calendar with a small little heart. Wanda believes it is the anniversary between the two, but, in reality, it is the dinner invitation that Vision made to her employer, Mr. Hart (assonant with the word heart).

August 23 does not coincide with any particular comic anniversary, but, on that day, in 2019, at the D23 Expo, Kevin Feige announced part of the cast of supporting actors of the series and the return of the characters Darcy Lewis (from the first two Thor movies) and Randall Park (from Ant-man and The Wasp)

The cameo of the witch

It is the belief of many fans that Agnes, the irreverent neighbor played by Kathryn Hahn, is actually Agatha Harkness, the elderly witch who taught the dark arts in comics to Scarlet.

To further confirm this theory, the character, both in this 1950s timeline, and in the following episode, set in the 1960s, wears a cameo, precisely like the comic witch. It is not clear what the jewel represents, but the impression is that it is a stylization of the Three Graces.

The accounts do not add up

Vision, as we know, is a syntezoid, a synthetic human being with artificial intelligence. His artificial nature and his "computerized" mind are much more difficult to deceive and mislead.

For this reason one of the recurring themes of the first episode is how Viz asks and constantly ask what exactly the company you work for does, not getting a precise answer from anyone.

Small advertising space

The fake advertising interludes of the series hide some interesting clues. Let's start with the first, which sponsors a futuristic toaster from Stark Industries. In addition to the obvious reference to the company owned by Iron Man, the sound that the toaster produces is that of the reactor technology of the Golden Avenger's armor. Even the insistent beep and the LED (threateningly red) do not seem typical of a toaster, but are very reminiscent of those of a hospital heart monitor. Working a bit of imagination, you can also see a reference to a joke about two sentient toasters that recurs in the miniseries The Vision by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta.

In the second spot, instead, a Strucker brand watch is sponsored. The reference is to Baron Strucker, the tall Hydra poppy (whose logo appears on the clock face) who conducted the experiments that gave Wanda and her brother Pietro powers, as seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. .

Guess who's coming to dinner?

The scene of the dinner with the Hart spouses, of great importance in the first trailer of the series, is the one with the most ideas of reflection on what is the reality behind this WandaVisione. Let's start by noting that, for the first time since The Avengers: Age of Ultron, reference is made to the fact that the witch played by Elizabeth Olsen comes from Sokovia, a fictional European country theater of the first meeting between the two newlyweds. Of the couple's two guests, Mrs. Hart seems oddly the most aware of the bizarre situation she finds herself in, all the while feeling dizzy and trying to justify the couple's oddities to her husband. Until…

That bite too much

Mr. Hart's persistent questions about the past of the Vision spouses are the first hint that something is wrong with this reality from sit-com. When the surly head of Vision strangles himself with a mouthful, Wanda's vanished air disappears to make way for the serious and resolute woman seen in previous films. Vision, too, suddenly changes attitude by showing off her powers to save the day. Note a nuance that, in the Italian adaptation, is lost: Mrs. Hart begins to insistently say to her husband "Stop it!" as if to scold him with a "stop it!".

But when he begins to suffocate, the tone with which the lady continues to repeat the phrase changes and, from an ironic reproach to her husband, it becomes a plea to the two to stop her husband's slow agony and save him. For the first time in the entire episode the laughter and the sound carpet disappear and, for the first time, the power of Vision changes visual representation, becoming more realistic and without the retro-styled animated "stars".

What's on TV after?

The end of the first episode coincides with the end of the imaginary television series that sees the two spouses as protagonists. To observe everything a mysterious figure in the laboratory who notes something in a notebook. We probably overdo it safely, but the hands look like those of the talented Kat Dennings, the interpreter of Darcy Lewis expected in the next few episodes.

Also noteworthy, on a nearby monitor, is the sword logo of the S.W.O.R.D. we told you about in the first trailer. The same logo also appears on the toy airplane found by Wanda in the next episode and in the beekeeper's suit that emerges from a manhole at the end of the same. And speaking of the latter…

Advanced Mechanical Ideas

The beekeeper suit of the shady figure that appears at the end of the second episode could be a reference to what is the uniform of the members of AIM, (Advanced Mechanical Ideas) the shady organization of evil scientists led by the monstrous MODOK and villains of the recently released video game The Avengers.


The second episode (set in the 1960s) has an animated theme which is a clear homage to that of Life as a witch, the sitcom that aired on ABC from 1964 to 1972 starring Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York. There are some really tasty cartoon references inside. When the Animated Vision crosses the floor to go downstairs, we can see fleetingly, in the gap between the two floors, the helmet of the Sinister Reaper, aka Eric Williams.

The villain , in the comics, he is the brother of Wonder Man, the hero from whom Ultron copied the mind patterns to create Vision. in the aforementioned The Vision, the villain breaks into the house of the Vision, taking advantage of the absence of the head of the family, to destroy his family. The villain will have a bad end and his killing by Virginia Vision, kept hidden from her husband, will be the spark that will trigger the breaking of the family quiet.

Always in the animated theme, in the clip seeing Wanda at the supermarket, we notice that, among the billboards, one appears with a carton of milk called Bova Milk. The reference is to Bova, the anthropomorphic cow who saved and raised the little Wanda and Pietro still in swaddling clothes.

Scarlet Red

In all the black and white sequences, the only inserts of color seem to be related to the red color. The LED of the Stark toaster is red, the airplane found by Wanda is red and the blood on Dottie's hand is also red, after injuring herself with the glass. Considering that the character of Wanda, in the comics, uses the code name of Scarlet Witch (Scarlet Witch), this does not seem accidental.

Nice to meet you, Captain Marvel

In the second episode he makes his first appearance in the series Teyonah Parris. According to official news, the character played by the actress is Monica Rambeau, the little daughter of Maria Rambeau seen in Captain Marvel, now an adult and, probably, an agent of the S.W.O.R.D. The young woman, however, introduces herself to Wanda with the name Geraldine. Could she be undercover?

Why ca n’t we just rewind?

It was said at the beginning of the article that Wanda could be the creator who is not fully aware of the reality that surrounds her. On the one hand, it seems that the witch is well aware of what is happening around her and that she is determined to keep the illusion alive (like when she "rewinds the tape" after seeing the mysterious beekeeper). However, the reaction to the arrogant Mr. Hart and the accusations of the smirking Dottie, the girl seems genuinely amazed. Just as she is surprised when she, on the radio, she hears a voice calling her name and asking who did this to her. Could Wanda actually be the victim of a dark force? Or just about herself?
