Therefore, I’ve obvs made it my mission to analyse every single goddamn second of the eps to decipher all the sneaky clues and hidden Easter eggs.
Need help spotting the marvellous Marvel clues, plus the nods to old school sitcoms? Here’s a list of everything I’ve spotted thus far.
WandaVision nods to your fave Marvel flicks
There are several references to the secret SWORD observation (Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division). In episode 2, the phantom toy helicopter bears the SWORD symbol. This symbol is shown again in episode 3 as Monica wears it as a necklace, which tips Wanda off to the fact that she’s a secret agent.
Wanda’s fam and upbringing
Although the WandaVision iteration of the Scarlet Witch has her painted as a character from an American sitcom, she’s actually born and raised in Sokovia (a made-up European country).
In episode 1, her Sokovian heritage is referenced when Vision is making an excuse for her odd behaviour to his boss during a dinner scene. Also in episode 3, she sings to her newborn twins in her native tongue and tells Monica that she had a twin brother named Pietro.
Ultron, the robotic villain from Avengers: Age of Ultron, is brought up just before Wanda snaps and yeets Monica out of her fictional world in ep 3. The secret agent asks Wanda if her brother Pietro was killed by Ultron, which alerts her to the fact that she’s speaking with an agent of SWORD.
There are several references to Hydra, the evil organisation featured in the Captain America flicks and the ones responsible for blessing Wanda with her mystical powers.
There’s an ad in ep 2 that features the Hydra logo, as well as another ad in the upcoming ep.
In the ’60s themed eps, there are nods to iconic old series like The Dick Van Dyke Show, including a similarly shaped kitchen and also the famous opening credit sequence. Plus Wanda’s wardrobe in episode 2 is inspired by Mary Tyler Moore.
There are also plenty of shoutouts to witchy series Bewitched for obvi reasons, including the nosy neighbour (Kathryn Hahn’s character) who is suspicious of the suburban witch, plus similar camera techniques when Wanda works her magic.
The most recent ep is set in the 1970s and so there are a bunch of nods to shows from that time, including The Partridge Family, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father and The Brady Bunch.
The first three eps of WandaVision are now streaming on Disney+, with the fourth set to drop on Friday.
