How WandaVision connects to future MCU films

Posted on

In an interview with Deadline, Kevin Feige was asked about how WandaVision can connect with the future of the MCU, including whether the series could lay the groundwork for the eventual revival of the X-Men under Disney’s banner. Naturally, Feige kept his cards close to his chest, stating, “Everything can be a ramp to everything, specifically though, yes, Monica in Captain Marvel 2 and specifically to Wanda teaming up with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

The most interesting thing about his response is how even though the X-Men came up in the question, he didn’t bring it up at all in his answer. It could just be that future X-Men movies are still a ways off, and he wants to focus on more immediate projects like Captain Marvel 2 and Doctor Strange 2, or perhaps there’s a more direct link between WandaVision and the X-Men that Feige doesn’t want to reveal just quite yet. Additionally, having Monica Rambeau, who was a child during the ’90s-set events of Captain Marvel, show up as an adult on WandaVision establishes a role for her in the coming sequel. More than likely, it would make sense for Captain Marvel 2 to be set in the modern day, allowing her to team up with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) in some capacity.

One thing’s for certain: every Marvel fan is going to want to check out Disney+ on January 15, when the first two episodes of WandaVision debut. Chances are good that more than a few surprises are in store for us by the time the season finale comes around, making this one show you don’t want to miss.
