Did You Recognize The Voice On Radio In WandaVision
Yet a very interesting detail has been noticed in one of WandaVision’s episodes that is straight connecting to one of the most important characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the shown, they’re revealed to be living a happily married lifestyle inside a 1950s sitcom, which in reality is an alternate world constructed by Wanda. WandaVision has now released on Disney+ and is a show that doesn’t need to have a commercial, but it does which is designed in a way to connect the show to other Marvel Cinematic Universe characters.
Outside of Vision (Paul Bettany) and Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), much of the show’s cast has already been revealed. Kathryn Hahn will be playing Agnes, the nosy neighbor Teyonah Parris is playing a grown-up Monica Rambeau, and Kat Dennings and Randall Park are reprising their roles as Darcy Lewis and FBI Agent Jimmy Woo, respectively. At least in terms of the main cast, that doesn’t give a lot of breathing room for a significant surprise actor to join the ensemble.
WandaVision’s world is certainly not what it seems; it’s a fake reality that she presumably created, as evidenced by the “episode” rewinding at the end. Considering all of the House of M similarities and the fact that Scarlet Witch’s powers have come from an Infinity Stone, there’s no telling how far her abilities can go in maintaining this world. And now, the series has made its first connection, that is with Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’s not entirely clear or confirmed whose voice is on the radio, but it sounds very much like Jimmy Woo, played by Randall Park.
Park originally portrayed the character in Ant-Man and the Wasp; Woo was an FBI agent monitoring Scott Lang, who was put on house arrest following the events of Captain America: Civil War. Now he’s working with another organization: SWORD.
Well, things entirely changed when Scott was on house arrest – Thanos swiped half of the universe. Five years went by and the Avengers regathered to reverse the snap and defeat Thanos. Somewhere during that time, Jimmy Woo left the FBI and now appears to be working for SWORD, a new intelligence agency dedicated to protecting the world from extraterrestrial threats (it’s been dubbed the space version of SHIELD) – at least, that was their purpose in the comics. Things are a bit different in WandaVision, seeing as the “SW” part of SWORD no longer stands for “sentient world” but rather “sentient weapons”. That is a classification that could apply to Scarlet Witch.
It remains to be seen how SWORD’s role in WandaVision plays out, but what’s interesting is what Jimmy Woo was saying on the radio. Woo appeared to be attempting to make contact with Wanda, thus suggesting that they don’t believe she’s at fault. Furthermore, Woo asks who’s doing this to her; since SWORD now targets “sentient weapons,” so it’s possible there’s a weapon or device that’s either creating this fake world or is interacting with Scarlet Witch’s powers to create this reality.
WandaVision episode 2 teases a person’s voice on the radio. Elizabeth Olsen teased that WandaVision will explore more of Scarlet Witch’s backstory, such as her Eastern European roots. Wanda Maximoff, a.ka. Scarlet Witch, has been around the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the end of Phase 2, and has had some iconic moments but was never given the spotlight. But that is changing now, as it is time for us to see who Scarlet Witch is, what her origins are, and what she is truly capable of. The only selling point we know of right now is the intrigue of the show replicating a style that spans decades of sitcom TV shows.
With the likelihood of altered reality and setup for Scarlet Witch’s return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. We remember in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the MCU introduced Wanda Maximoff as a native of the fictional Eastern European Country of Sokovia. Wanda has a convoluted history in Marvel’s comics, to say the least, but she is a native of Serbia originally. Wanda and her brother Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, were unknowingly kidnapped as children though. It is possible that WandaVision could reveal a similar backstory for Wanda! If the popular theory pans out that Wanda herself created the pocket reality, it would lend itself to that as well.
Phase 4 was already supposed to be in full swing by this point — with multiple movies and even another Disney+ series having told their stories. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, everything was shifted around. Regardless, Feige has assured that it doesn’t affect the overall story running through the films. Now, all we have to do is wait for more easter eggs to surface!
