It has always been the assumption that, in WandaVision, Vision hasn’t actually come back from the dead, similar to the “House of M” comic book run in which Scarlett Witch creates her own reality in hopes to bring back her dead children. It seems as though the MCU is adapting this story, having Wanda create a new reality after the passing of her beloved Vision. Much of the plot is still unclear, despite multiple trailers and interviews for all the world to see and dissect.
In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, WandaVision director Matt Shakman revealed more details on the MCU’s upcoming “six-hour epic event.”
“It’s an intricate puzzle box of a narrative. We were constantly building forwards and then having to go backwards; constantly having to challenge your earlier assumption and ideas. Be rigorous about making sure things are holding together, because you’re building a six-hour epic event; you have to make sure that the final minutes of that event series are just as satisfying as the beginning.”
Shakman goes on to assure fans that this is an “MCU extravaganza” and that Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen are challenged with “heartbreaking” moments.
“And it’s a full MCU extravaganza, so there are the big dramatic moments, and the high stakes life-or-death moments. And Paul and Lizzie are absolutely up for the challenge of those heartbreaking beats, so we had to go there as well.”
Knowing how much Wanda has been through, it is painful to think there will be even more heartbreak for this young Avenger. Fans know from Avengers: Endgame that Vision was her “everything,” so his return (even if it is in her head) will be powerful.
