MARVEL fans are gearing up for the season finale of Disney's smash hit series WandaVision.
Fans are theorizing what they believe the March 5 season finale of WandaVision will feature, however, director Matt Shakman may have shattered the dreams of spectators.
What are the WandaVision finale fan theories?
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Shakman said he expects many fans will be disappointed by how some fan theories pan out.
“I hope that they feel like the journey was satisfying for them,” Shakman said when asked what he hopes viewers take away from the WandaVision finale.
“I know there are so many theories out there; there will be a lot of people who will no doubt be disappointed by one theory or another.
"But we’re always telling this story about Wanda dealing with grief and learning how to accept that loss, and hopefully people will find that the finale is surprising but also satisfying, and that it feels inevitable because it’s the same story they’ve been watching the whole time," Shakman added.
The eighth episode left fans on their edge of their seats after learning Wanda harnessed a dark power that she doesn't understand, as the name Scarlett Witch is finally mentioned in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fans are theorizing the series will conclude into two plots, first it will set up for the Marvel sequel Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, due in theaters in March 2022, and dive into Wanda's witchy conflict with Avengers, like in the comics.
Wanda’s story so far has been one of overwhelming grief and trauma after losing her parents, her twin brother Pietro and the love of her life, Vision.
“We were trying to tell a complete story in terms of the narrative around Westview, N.J., and we hope that there’s some resolution to that story, and that it is satisfying and also surprising for the fans,” Shakman explains.
“But Wanda will continue into Doctor Strange [in the Multiverse of Madness], and there’s a lot more to her story to be told, so this is only one part of a very complicated and very rich life.
“Wanda has suffered more loss than anybody in the MCU. She’s gone through so much and that was always the emotional core of WandaVision, exploring loss and how we come back from [it],” Shakman added.
What happened in episode 8 of WandaVision?
In episode 8 of WandaVision, Wanda is referred to by her superhero moniker, the Scarlet Witch.
It took a now-revealed villain in Agatha Harkness familiar with the dark arts to recognize Wanda's out-of-world actions as coming from something called Chaos Magic.
"You have no idea how dangerous you are. You're supposed to be a myth, a being capable of spontaneous creation.
"Here you are, using it to make breakfast for dinner," Agatha tells Wanda after she restrains her twin sons in her purple magic.
"Your children. Vision. This whole little life you've made. This is Chaos Magic, Wanda. And that makes you the Scarlet Witch."
Chaos Magic, according to fandom pages, is magic that can "manipulate, warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality to the user's every whims and bring about total destruction to the cosmos."
Wanda is unaware that she now yields more power than she could ever understand, and yet, Agatha Harkness doesn't appear intent on teaching her how to use it.
Who is White Vision?
In the first post-credit scene of series, Marvel fans caught a glimpse of an all-white version of Vision made by S.W.O.R.D.
"It seems that Project Cataract has been a mission to rebuild Vision as a sentient weapon for S.W.O.R.D," writes Decider.
"Not only that, but this Vision is all white, suggesting he’s been reprogrammed as a blank slate, with no personality or emotions, especially for Wanda."
White Vision is a version of Vision first introduced in the Vision Quest storyline in West Coast Avengers issues #42-#50.
Following a similar plot to the television series, the comic storyboard played out Vision and Wanda moving to the suburbs and having kids.
Just when all is going well for the family, Vision is abducted and dismantled, and then brought back with his emotions and memory wiped.
Horrified Wanda is distraught at the introduction of White Vision, who has no recollection of any connection to her.
The end of WandaVision episode 8 teases that "White Vision will enter the Hex to confront Wanda, Agatha Harkness, and the loving version of Vision that Wanda has manifested with her chaos magic."
