The WandaVision trailer just arrived recently, and it packed a ton of details that actually went over everyone’s head. Only a frame by frame viewing of the trailer allowed us to grab all the details hidden in it. Apparently, one of those deep cut Easter Eggs actually presents a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 connection. To be fair, it is directly linked with Rocket Raccoon’s origin.
As we go through the trailer, we see that Wanda learns to warp reality at will. Initially, it seems like Wanda herself doesn’t realize that she’s changing the reality around her. This is hinted by Wanda’s reaction upon the transformation from black & white to colored. Both Vision and Wanda are surprised by the change in color. But since Wanda warps reality herself by the end of the trailer, it does seem that she was either pretending in front of Vision, or she gradually realizes that she herself is the cause of the changes in reality.

Anyway, the reason why we’re bringing up the reality warping is because when Wanda changes the interior of the Vision Residence, an image of a cow is spotted on the wall in a split second frame. Charles Murphy from Murphy’s Multiverse was the one to bring this detail forward. The reason why we’re considering it to be an important Easter Egg is because this Cow is none other than Bova. Like Rocket Raccoon, Bova can also speak as she was another result of the High Evolutionary’s experiments upon creatures.
It has been stated time and time again that Rocket’s creator, the High Evolutionary will turn out to be the main villain of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. James Gunn himself has confirmed that Rocket’s story arc will be brought to a complete circle. The questions he has about himself will be answered in the next Guardians movie. Gunn told Deadline:
“When you asked me what was saddest for me when I thought it was gone—and anybody at Marvel can tell you—it’s this very strange and attached relationship to Rocket. Rocket is me, he really is, even if that sounds narcissistic. Groot is like my dog. I love Groot in a completely different way. I relate to Rocket and I feel compassion for Rocket, but I also feel like his story has not been completed. He has an arc that started in the first movie, continued into the second and goes through Infinity War and Endgame, and then I was set to really finish that arc in Guardians 3. That was a big loss to me—not being able to finish that story—though I was comforted by the fact that they were still planning to use my script.”
This statement here almost confirms that the High Evolutionary will be a part of the next Guardians movie. Now that question that arises is, will Bova also show up in the MCU. The answer to this question has to be a plain and simple “No.” Bova’s image in the WandaVision could just be a nod to the comics. Even with all of its sci-fi logics, Marvel still tries to keep things relatable and sort of realistic. So, Wanda & Pietro having a talking cow as their caretaker on Earth just won’t fit in with their story.
It will still be believable when their real father turns out to be Magneto. But a genetically enhanced cow might be a little too much. Maybe Wanda & Pietro had a pet cow before the Stark missiles were used to attack Sokovians. That is as far as this Easter Egg could be extended. Or, if Bova really has to show up in the MCU, then she could be present on the current planet of the High Evolutionary. Let’s see if Marvel brings her in.
It looks like WandaVision will be the one to start MCU’s Phase 4 in December this year. Are you excited about this series? Tell us in the comments down below.
