If Schaeffer is promising to dig deeper into Wanda’s past, it’ll surely be more than just name-drops.
When speaking to TheWrap, WandaVision showrunner Jac Schaeffer teased fans that Episode 3 of her new Disney+ series won’t be the only time Wanda’s twin-brother Pietro Maximoff is referenced.
When speaking on the show’s focus in the later episodes, Schaeffer said that they’re “an opportunity to dig deeper into who [Wanda and Vision] are,” teasing that fans will be “exploring all of those details” from the past of the unusual couple, which includes the Silver Speedster.
“The show is about Wanda and Vision and it’s an opportunity to dig deeper into who they are. And that has to do with where they come from. We’re all a product of our experiences and our trauma and our relationships. And so we will be exploring all of those details of their pasts as we move forward.”
In fact, if Wanda’s history is going to be the focal point, fans may be treated with a flashback to a never-before-seen memory that Wanda shared with Pietro in their years growing up and looking out for one another. Or, maybe audiences will even be lucky enough to see Aaron Taylor-Johnson reprise his role as Quicksilver for a dream sequence of Wanda’s as she falls further off the deep-end.
