How the ‘WandaVision’ Post-Credits Scenes Connect to Spider-Man, Captain Marvel and More
The scenes were short. But there's a lot going on here.
Wanda and Vision are suburbanites no longer! After a magic-filled series finale (yeah, there are no plans for Season 2) the superhero antics of WandaVision wrapped-up more like a theatrical Marvel movie than a TV series. And you know what that means, right? Yep, post-credits scenes!
The series finale of WandaVision had not one, but two post-credits scenes. So, if you were feeling a little disappointed at the end of the “last” shot, just keep watching, there are two more pivotal scenes after that. But, what the hell did they mean? Is Wanda’s family ever getting back together? Did they ever exist? Here’s a briefly spoiler-y explanation to help you quickly sort out the WTF-ness of the WandaVision finale. Massive spoilers ahead! Look away if you don’t want to know!
Mid-Credits Scene: Monica is recruited by a Skrull
After the dust settles in Westview, Captain Monica Rambeau is asked to step into the theater. (Which as the words “Tannhauser Gate” on the marquee, a Blade Runner shout-out.) When she does, the agent talking to her morphs into a Skrull. Those are the green aliens we met in Captain Marvel, and who we later learned were impersonating Nick Fury and Maria Hill in the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home. When this Skrull tells Monica that “he” wants to see her, the “he” being references here is clearly Nick Fury!
Does this mean that the rumored Samuel L. Jackson Dinsey+ Marvel show is coming? Maybe. But, more likely, it seems like Monica is on the path to becoming the next Captain Marvel, just like she did in the comics. Either way, this first post-credits scene could have only happened because of the post-credits scene in the last Spider-Man, so if you want to rewatch Far From Home, you’ll have to hit that movie up on Starz, or BUY it on Amazon, because no it’s very much not on Disney+.
Post-Credits Scene: Wanda’s kids are real?
After everything is over, we see Wanda hiding out in a cabin in the woods, having a nice cup of coffee or something. Well, actually no. That appears to be an illusion of Wanda, while the real Scarlet Witch is researching some hardcore magic. Just before the show ends (forever) Wanda seems to hear the telepathic cry of her sons. During the actual episode, we were pretty much led to believe that her kids were part of the trippy construction of the faux-Westview, implying they were not real.
But, because we hear them cry for help at the end of the episode that strongly suggests they are out there, somewhere. Where could they be? Well, in this finale episode, Agatha told Wanda that the Scarlet Witch is even more powerful than the “Sorcerer Supreme.” That’s a reference to Doctor Strange, and check out with the comics. Here’s the rub: We know that Elizabeth Olsen’s next appearance as Wanda/the Scarlet Witch will be in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Does that mean that perhaps Wanda’s children are real, but only in a parallel dimension? Considering the appearance of her “brother” from the X-Men was revealed to be a massive fake-out, it seems possible that Doctor Strange 2 could start to cross over into all sorts of new Marvel dimensions where all sorts of family dynamics are possible.
Does that mean Wanda will get reunited with her kids? Hopefully! Although, after the death of Tony, it’s not like Marvel has a great track record when it comes to happy endings for families.
WandaVision is streaming now on Disney+. The next Marvel show, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier hits Disney+ on March 19, 2021. Soon!
