Reading through all the theories and possibilities and I can't wait for what's to come. I know we're just starting on the next phase of Marvel but with how well WandaVision has turned out I'm even more excited for what's to come. Until proven wrong I think Kevin Feige is going to continue to provide awesomeness.

It's so great to have the MCU back! One month to Falcon and Winter Soldier

Yeah, I thought when they went for Infinity War that they weren't ever going to be able to hold a candle to that story. I need to learn to be patient, they know what they are doing!

Yeah after that movie and Endgame I was worried it would never get to those heights again but WandaVision is proving me wrong. This was one of the shows I was least sure about and I am so excited for every episode.

I don't think they will be able to replicate or get to the masterpiece they had with the Infinity Saga because that was never even thought to be possible. BUT that doesn't mean going forward their next story line or story lines won't be fantastic. I am not going into their next phase(s) post Endgame hoping it will be the same, so if they somehow, some way, get anywhere close to their first few phases...DAMN!

In regards to the MCU moving forward and how Feige and co. can keep things rolling, there is one major component. The villain.

Thanos absolutely made the Infinity Saga work the way it did. Obviously Downey Jr. as Iron Man and the rest of crew were critical as well, but the true secret to most movies or series working is the antagonist. Thanos was shrouded in mystery the whole time, and the lead up was tantalizing for us all. Then when we finally got him it was even better because you actually felt a little for him and understood/borderline sympathized with his reasoning. That is the key.

Get another big villain right and the MCU will be just fine.

Its pretty amazing how this show makes you see the films in a different way. I watched Infinity War the other day and the scenes with Wanda and Vision hit much differently, especially the end when Wanda "killed" vision. I just wasn't near as invested in those characters the first time I saw those films.

Totally agree. Rewatching the previous movies from Wanda’s POV was kinda shocking. Her life had been absolutely awful until she met Vision.

Probably gonna rewatch WandaVision tonight to pick up on the Agnes stuff I might’ve missed

Glad I’m not alone on this, watching Infinity War was sad before, but the scene Wanda sacrificing Vision is just brutal to watch now.

I watched Civil War tonight... to go from that to infinity war is kind of interesting considering they definitely were not romantically paired in CW.

I may just not be knowledgeable enough to grasp what's going on, but I was expecting/hoping for more of a reveal from the end-credits scene in the latest episode. It didn't seem to me that it provided anything additional to the story.

That's one catchy jingle.

Now the question is how deep does it go? Have we met the TRUE VILLAIN yet? With what's going on in Agnes' house and that Wandavission is a setup for "Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" we have to be getting Dr. Strange in the next 2 episodes to sort this out.

PS, where did the kids go?

Agatha is a minor player and in no way the Big Bad. But she is definitely associated with a character who would be...

I’m seeing WandaVision Episode 8 promos on YouTube that tease both
Reed Richards and Doctor Strange.
Does anyone know if these are real, or are merely those annoying, sucky fan-made “trailers”?

I've had to google a bunch of stuff to get caught up with some of the characters and theories brought up in WandaVision. I'm not up on all of the comic canon. In terms of the theories
Mephisto or Nightmare seem to leading the pack in terms of who is ultimately pulling the strings. I honestly don't know much on either, but it seems like Mephisto would be a solid villain for the next phase, given that he disrupts a lot of things and has interacted with several heroes over the years.

I wonder what percentage of the viewers are familiar with some of the villains tied to these theories.

I'm also curious to find out how much Wanda factors into the rest of phase 4, if at all. To my knowledge, Elizabeth Olsen isn't contracted for any additional movies.

Not familiar with Nightmare but after searching him that would work. I think either him or Mephisto makes sense.

Wanda Vision is supposed to directly tie into Dr. Strange.

Somebody switching back and forth on the good guy/bad guy line like Loki takes things up another level as well.

I heard that it was supposed to tie in, but I wasn't sure how much more there was in store for her character. I couldn't find anything more, but since I first remember her from X-Men....
