Spoilers for 'WandaVision' Episode 1 and 2

Fan theories have always been a major part of the MCU fandom experience, and with Marvel now releasing new content in weekly episodes, there is more room than ever for predictions to grow. The first two episodes of the new series may have been surprisingly dedicating to sitcom storytelling, but that doesn't mean Marvel hasn't slipped in enough Easter Eggs to keep fan speculation rife. We take a look at some of the top predictions fans have for the future of the series.

Many believe that by the end of the series, several important MCU characters will be brought back. "My big prediction for WandaVision is we see the return of Ultron in some respect. Whether it's a backup file or because of some multiverse shenanigans I think he comes back even if for a moment," wrote one fan. One fan believe the show's already brought in Doctor Strange, writing, "Can we talk about this? This guy looks like Dr.Strange crushing into Wandas reality to stop it and she be like: 'NO'." Other fans picked up on easter eggs that lead them to believe Wanda's long-dead brother, Pietro (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson on 'Age of Ultron' and by Evan Peters in the 'X-Men' films), ought to return, writing, "the way they mentioned strucker, sokovia and referenced the stark bomb ... if they don't bring back PIETRO (not evan's quicksilver) we riot."




For other fans, it's clear that what's happening within the series isn't real - and they're making big guesses as to what's REALLY going on out in the world. "Wandavision drops tonight. Here’s my long shot prediction: Everything they experience happens in the Mind stone as Wanda is destroying it. It’s there way of saying goodbye in that moment. Most likely wrong but that would be my pitch," wrote one fan. "#WandaVision also calling it now, in episode one where Mrs.hart is hysterical “stop it”, in the real life she’s a nurse trying to get Wanda to stop choking another nurse/attendant," wrote another. One fan references Wanda's children, a major plot point in the comics that saw Wanda conceive children using magical powers, who souls were stolen by the devil Mephisto, leading to Wanda losing her sanity. "Throughout the 2nd episode everyone kept chanting “for the children!” I think the main villain controlled the citizens so that Wanda could unconsciously concieve her children. At the end they will steal the twins from Wanda because they are so powerful." 










Many fans are in disagreement over the meaning of the toaster. Some argue that it's in reference to Wanda's (Elizabeth Olsen) origin story, in which she reveals that she was trapped in Sokovia waiting for a Stark bomb to explode. Others believe it's a reference to Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta's 'Vision' comic book, which inspired 'WandaVision', in which Vision (Paul Bettany) is jokingly referred to as a "toaster". "SO I HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT THE SOUND OF THE TOASTER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN REFERENCE TO THE BOMB THAT KILLED HER PARENTS AND NOW I FEEL BAD FOR LAUGHING" wrote a fan, who "cracked up" when they assumed that it was a reference to the comic.




One fan makes a deep dive theory into Agnes' (Kathyrn Hahn) character, believing that Agness is actually Agatha Harkness, a witch from the comics who both trained Wanda in her magical powers, and acted as a babysitter for the son of Franklin Richards, whose parents Reed Richards and Sue Storm are in the Fantastic Four. "Agatha survived the Salem witch trials. So a bad bitch witch indeed. SHE, theydies and gentlethems, are how we are going to get Fantastic Four," writes a fan, in a thread.
