Do WandaVision’s opening and ending credit present some clues to the present’s central mysteries? Here is a breakdown of some potential clues.
WandaVision‘s opening and finish credit could present some clues to the present’s central mysteries. Marvel Studios’ first collection on Disney+ is notably totally different than all that is come earlier than it, utilizing tv sitcom tropes as a canopy for what is going to seemingly be a heartbreaking story. The present’s first two episodes have begun to disclose some cracks within the façade of Wanda and Vision’s Westview utopia however, with seven extra episodes left this season, it is just a matter of time till a bleaker actuality reveals itself.
When audiences final noticed WandaVision‘s titular heroes, issues have been removed from peachy. Within the closing minutes of Avengers: Infinity War, Wanda was pressured to kill Imaginative and prescient, who was keen to sacrifice his life to forestall Thanos from acquiring the Thoughts Stone. Profitable in destroying the stone (and her synthezoid lover), Wanda was pressured to look at him die once more when Thanos, rebuilding him with the Time Stone, murdered him graphically. Sadly, Wanda’s comprehensible grief was reduce brief when she was snapped away minutes later. Nonetheless, it turns into clear in Avengers: Endgame that Wanda – now reconstituted – has a rating to settle, exhibiting off extraordinary energy when dueling the Mad Titan. Along with her foe defeated, the viewers left Wanda really alone for the primary time in her cinematic historical past, presumably left to deal with the trauma of dropping one other beloved one.

With so few peeks past Wanda’s constructed actuality, seeking to WandaVision‘s numerous credit score sequences could assist to untangle the present’s dangling questions. Here is a breakdown of some potential clues to what’s forward for Marvel’s Odd Couple.
Grim Reaper Helmet
In the course of the Bewitched-like animated sequence in WandaVision episode 2, there’s a second when Imaginative and prescient phases by means of the ground to the extent beneath, revealing a stunning object hiding within the floorboards. A freeze body reveals the define of a helmet that seems to be that of the Grim Reaper, a infamous Avengers villain. Prior the present’s Disney+ launch, there was a lot hypothesis as to who its predominant antagonist could be, with many contemplating Mephisto the likeliest candidate. Nonetheless, this revelation might level to Eric Williams a.okay.a. the Grim Reaper as the actual massive unhealthy.
The selection would undoubtedly make sense, particularly contemplating the villain’s connection to Imaginative and prescient within the comics. The brother of Surprise Man, the Grim Reaper has on a couple of event tried to sway the synthezoid to villainy by tempting him with a human physique, as soon as even providing Imaginative and prescient the physique of his deceased (however preserved) brother. In fact, the thematic resonance of getting a personality named “the Grim Reaper” in WandaVision is tantalizing, as Vision’s return from his Avengers: Infinity War death has but to be defined. For the reason that Grim Reaper’s powers within the comics embody necromancy, is it potential that he has one way or the other performed into Imaginative and prescient’s continued existence?
The Image Frames
All through the identical animated sequence, the viewers sees an image body on the wall of Wanda and Imaginative and prescient’s lounge, which shows a silhouettes of the couple. In fact, this design alternative might mirror the sequence’s simplistic and cartoonish type, but it surely’s potential it might additionally converse to the present’s extra shadowy undertones. The element – or lack thereof – might level to the concept that what we’re seeing is not actual, one thing that can turn out to be more and more apparent to the present’s protagonists. Extra importantly, if Imaginative and prescient actually continues to be useless, the couple’s marital bliss proven in WandaVision is nothing however a tragic simulacrum.
In the course of the animation in WandaVision episode 2, the protagonists fly round their quaint city earlier than touchdown in entrance of Westview’s welcome signal. Earlier than Wanda transforms it along with her magic, the signal reads, in smaller lettering, “House: It is The place You Make It,” seemingly affirmation that Wanda is creating this actuality herself. There have been questions concerning simply how conscious Wanda is of her new actuality, though the incoming radio message appears to means that she is one way or the other being manipulated. Nonetheless, when the beekeeper arrives near WandaVision episode 2‘s conclusion, it seems as if Wanda one way or the other rewinds the story, hinting that perhaps she is in management greater than the S.W.O.R.D. brokers exterior the Westview bubble notice.
The tip credit of each episodes use a wierd pixel-effect, one that’s extremely reminiscent to artwork in Marvel Comics well-known “Home of M” storyline, which has been long-rumored to function supply materials for WandaVision. Within the arc, a grieving Scarlet Witch rewrites the universe after studying that her youngsters by no means existed, making a world by which she could be reunited with them. When Wanda makes use of her reality-warping talents in House of M (and in different latest appearances), they’re typically represented by small blocks reshaping the objects and other people round her.
It’s notable that these pixels first reveal themselves after the digicam zooms in by means of Imaginative and prescient’s eye, presumably hinting that he has been constructed by Wanda herself. Followers have puzzled how Imaginative and prescient might have come again to life and Wanda utilizing her formidable powers to rebuild family members just isn’t with out precedent within the comics. Maybe Imaginative and prescient is absolutely nonetheless useless and far of WandaVision‘s conclusion will middle on Wanda’s acceptance of that actuality. Nonetheless, contemplating rumors that she could function an antagonist in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the revelation could find yourself being a breaking level for the Scarlet Witch.
Even after solely two episodes, roses have regularly been current all through the story and, subsequently, it’s unsurprising once we see one constructed from crimson pixels within the present’s finish credit. Roses symbolize love and romance, making it an apt alternative for a present following the Avenger energy couple. The colour crimson, clearly referencing the Scarlet Witch, options closely within the present as nicely, often intruding on the episodes’ black and white palate (with the SWORD helicopter, the toaster’s flashing crimson gentle, and Dottie’s blood). It’s notable that roses proven in a chunk of artwork hanging in the Scarlet Witch and Vision‘s lounge. Roses are additionally featured on wallpaper in among the present’s advertising and marketing materials.
Agnes additionally makes particular notice of Dottie’s prize roses, saying, “Her roses bloom underneath penalty of dying.” The ominous line could present a clue to Dottie’s bigger function within the overarching plot, maybe hinting that she is the true villain of the collection. If the Grim Reaper – clearly related to “dying” – actually is the collection’ true antagonist, is it potential that he’s taking the type of Westview’s “Queen Cul De Sac”?
