WandaVision Introduce Mutants in the MCU:
A lot of us think that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be the film that holds the key to the entire story of MCU moving forward. But most of us are forgetting that the Disney+ series WandaVision will be the means for Doctor Strange 2 to tell its story. So technically, all of the Multiverse shenanigans that are yet to arrive will begin from WandaVision. But another question that people have been asking for quite a while is how will the MCU find a way to introduce Mutants into the MCU? Well, the screenwriter of Iron Man3, Drew Pearce seems to have the answer.
While speaking to Collider Pearce said that along with being the key to the Multiverse, WandaVision would also be the key to bringing Mutants into the picture. Kevin Feige has already confirmed that mutants are coming, and the X-Men will be very different from the ones we’ve already seen multiple times on the big screen. So, Pearce theorizes that:
“I would definitely not be surprised if WandaVision is the way they start to bring in, for example, mutants.”
It is suspected that WandaVision will deal with MCU’s version of the House of M storyline. In the “Avengers Disassembled” storyline from 2000s, the Avengers fought Scarlet Witch since she was mind-controlled by Doctor Doom and became a Doomsday weapon for him. Doom used Wanda to “hex” her teammates and that caused She-Hulk to go berserk ultimately killing Vision and her kids. Wanda’s grief over her loss gets so high that she loses control over her reality-altering powers. Her abilities explode in a wave which creates an alternate timeline called the “House of M.”
When Wanda figures what she has done, she tries to restore the original reality, and whilst doing that, she wishes for the world to get rid of the X-Gene. Now in the MCU, the only reason Wanda would possibly create an alternate timeline is because of the loss she suffers for Vision and her brother Pietro. Lizzie Olsen told us this show will really define why Wanda is called the Scarlet Witch. That could perhaps mean that her reality-altering powers could finally be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they could further cause the House of M to happen.
Since WandaVision would lead us to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, we figure that the Wanda is the main reason for this madness that’s going to be caused in the film. It could be after Wanda somehow restores the former reality, but this time instead of wishing for “No more mutants” Wanda may actually cause the mutants to exist all of a sudden. We don’t know how the science, or perhaps magic of it all is going to work because that’s what the talented screenwriters are there for. But yes, it would make sense for Wanda to spread the X-Gene throughout the world.
Doing this would allow Marvel to further plant the seeds in future films, so they could have a great way to welcome Marvel’s X-Men. But of course, the X-Men aren’t coming in any time soon. People will have to wait for at least 5 years so they could see the arrival of the mutants. It is too early to think about it as this is what Kevin Feige had to say of the X-Men and Fantastic Four properties coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“It’ll be a while. It’s all just beginning and the five-year plan that we’ve been working on, we were working on before any of that was set. So really it’s much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [the X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how nice it is that they’re home. That they’re all back. But it will be a very long time.”
Let’s see what happens.
