It has been more and more patent that magic and the multiverse will probably be central themes within the MCU going ahead. The small print of how this may work out are nonetheless unknown, however WandaVision has opened the gateway for mind-boggling motion pictures in Section 4 and past.
The essential cause why the MCU has been altering drastically in WandaVision is that Wanda Maximoff has been utilizing her powers to change actuality round her. Nonetheless, WandaVision episode 7 revealed that she’s not in whole management and that her buddy, Agnes, is basically the highly effective witch, Agatha Harkness. The sequence did an ideal job of misdirection with Agatha Harkness, whose id was all the time so apparent but so deceitful. The stunning twist was additionally preceded by a extra refined introduction within the type of the “Nexus” business. From what one can collect from the episode, plainly Agatha is absorbing magical energy from Westview to achieve entry to an alternate actuality or one thing comparable.

Within the comics, Nexus Beings are people who anchor their actuality in an online of various dimensions. Scarlet Witch is essentially the most notable of them, however different characters like Franklin Richards and Jean Gray are additionally worthy of the title. Provided that Nexus Beings seem to be replacing the Infinity Stones because the MCU’s subsequent highly effective (and sentient) McGuffins, there are numerous narrative routes future MCU motion pictures and reveals can take, significantly because the Nexus reference also can seek advice from the Nexus of All Realities, the hub to which all realities are linked. The 2 characters who will discover themselves tangled in multiversal conflicts are Physician Unusual and Spider-Man, whose motion pictures will probably observe the plot of WandaVision. This is what the introduction of the Nexus and new magical entities in WandaVision‘s imply for the MCU’s subsequent two multiverse motion pictures.
How WandaVision’s Twist Units Up Spider-Man 3
Though Spider-Man’s powers do not appear to narrate an excessive amount of to magic, he has been a vital determine for the multiverse all through the years, most notably within the completely different iterations of the Spider-Verse. Following Wanda Maximoff in WandaVision, the MCU may make Peter Parker a Nexus Being himself, provided that he is the intersection of a number of characters from alternate realities within the comics. Identical to Agatha Harkness, the multiverse-watching Madame Internet may function Spidey’s buddy and foe who goes after him as a consequence of his position within the crossroads between dimensions. Within the comics and in 2018’s Into The Spider-Verse, Spidey-related multiversal characters embrace Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Ham, however in the third installment of the Spider-Man: Homecoming franchise, they’re rumored to be Tobey Maguire’s and Andrew Garfield’s variations of Spidey, just a few characters from Sony’s universe of Spider-Man characters, and maybe even one or two characters from Netflix’s Defenders franchise.
The potential visitor characters from completely different universes do not cease at superpowered people. After all, it is all pure hypothesis at this level, however WandaVision‘s place in the MCU timeline closely means that the occasions from Spider-Man: Far From Home have already foreshadowed some multiversal components, together with a typical information about alternate realities (from Mysterio’s remark in regards to the multiverse) and folks who’ve already merged with the MCU (from J. Jonah Jameson’s look within the film’s post-credits scene). In hindsight, these particulars align completely with the ideas established in WandaVision. It would not be illogical for the Nexus of All Realities to be the explanation for the J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s universe showing in Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling in addition to Evan Peters’ Quicksilver showing in WandaVision. Together with Spider-Man’s typical position within the Spider-Verse, anticipate Tom Holland’s Peter Parker to be as essential in connecting his nook of the Marvel universe to different realities.

How WandaVision’s Twist Units Up Physician Unusual 2
It might be oddly out of character for Physician Unusual to disregard what’s occurring in Westview. The query now appears to be not if however when will the physician intervene, significantly as Wanda Maximoff has a confirmed position in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity. The ending of WandaVision episode 7 may be precisely what the long run Sorcerer Supreme is after: the mysterious magical book in Agatha’s basement. Assuming that is the Necronomicon, the Darkhold, or the Ebook of Cagliostro, there can be no cause for Physician Unusual to give attention to a special journey whereas Agatha Harkness is exploiting its energy. As Unusual mentioned to Tony Stark in Avengers: Infinity War (give or take a “douchebag” jab on the Avenger), his job is to “defend your actuality.” The guide and the cross-dimensional Nexus of All Realities undoubtedly threaten all he swore to guard.
The title of Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity is the obvious tie to WandaVision. It is no secret that the multiverse will probably be damaged proper open, and Wanda continues to be the prime suspect. Agatha Harkness appears to learn about her multiversal potential, which means that multiple magical entity may very well be getting ready to attacking. Therefore, Physician Unusual might witness the rise of a number of villains sooner or later. Apart from the villain Nightmare, he may quickly face Mephisto, Dormammu, Brother Voodoo, Enchantress, Physician Doom, Ghost Rider, or Agatha Harkness herself, to not point out Scarlet Witch. With the Thoughts Stone gone, Physician Unusual might turn into the guardian of the Nexus, making him the largest goal for evil entities sooner or later.
What Nexus Means For The Future Of The MCU
Spider-Man 3 and Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity are two of the preferred MCU releases that may take care of the results of WandaVision. Nonetheless, they are not the one ones. The Time Variance Authority may monitor Nexus Beings in Loki, which suggests the God of Mischief may very well be a type of people himself. Contemplating his magical talents, his interactions with the Infinity Stones, and his cussed refusal to die, Loki is among the most blatant candidates for the multiversal position. Alternatively, there’s little details about America Chavez, who will debut within the Doctor Strange sequel, nevertheless it’s very probably that her capacity to open portals to different realms will stay intact on the large display.
Different characters who may very well be Nexus beings or who may have robust ties with WandaVision‘s magic and the multiverse exterior Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity and Spider-Man 3 may very well be Physician Doom, who has been a magic consumer within the comics, in addition to the Improbable 4’s descendants Franklin Richards and Nathaniel Richards, with the latter set to seem in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as Kang the Conqueror (though the MCU may change his id). The inevitable introduction of mutants additionally signifies that characters reminiscent of Magik, Emma Frost, and Jean Gray might take care of magic greater than with mutant points. And, after all, the closest folks to Wanda Maximoff are extra liable to coping with magic and alternate realities than anyone else. For example, Quicksilver and Wiccan have already been arrange as key figures in WandaVision, however Wanda’s half-sister Polaris and her father Magneto, who was a key participant within the “Home of M” storyline, are different characters that may’t be forgotten.
