WandaVision is such a unique series that we still don’t know exactly who the real bad guy is. While some suggest that director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) could be the big bad guy because of his antagonistic approach, others say he’s just trying to take over Vision (Paul Bettany) and nothing more – after all, an android could easily be considered a weapon of mass destruction. Others, on the other hand, believe that a greater power is at stake here, in the form of a mystical figure like Mephisto or Nightmare. Here we discuss the extent to which the scarlet witch (Elizabeth Olsen) might be responsible for their entry into the world of beautiful cinema.
Spoilers for the latest episode of WandaVision! Be warned if you haven’t seen the brand new Halloween Spooktacular yet!
It is interesting to note that in the sixth episode of the series there are two distinct moments when the characters make boring references to Nightmare. Of course, they are not talking about the character himself – at least not yet – but rather using the word in casual conversation. This is the last case we think has anything to do with Wanda and the introduction of the big bad guy.
The moment Wanda and Quicksilver (Evan Peters) sit in the town square during a Halloween party. They are sensual when Pietro says he knows something about what’s going on. He knows that the children in the town square have not always been there, so he explicitly asks his sister where he keeps them.
He speculated that they were asleep and applauded his sister for the decision to keep the families in WandaWorld. He even went so far as to say that what Wanda is doing here is much better than “giving people nightmares” and pulling the “red hairs” out of their hands.
Children were the biggest stumbling block in the whole series. In the beginning, the adults in town kept shouting things like “For the children,” even though there were no children to be seen. Suddenly, Tommy and Billy were born. In episode five, Vision explicitly asks Wanda where all the children are in Westview, and an episode later, the town is suddenly overrun with children.
Perhaps Wanda was in control of this whole beginning, and her actions led a character like Nightmare to go to the other side. After all, the character is similar to Freddy Krueger in that he attacks through portals in the dream dimension. If an entire city kept children asleep for an extended period of time, someone like Nightmare might realize that this would be the opportunity to move from the dream dimension to the main reality of Marvel’s film universe.
It remains to be seen who Nightmare is – if the character turns out to be in the show. It could be Agnes (Kathryn Hahn), because she was on the outskirts of town, near Ellis Avenue. Earlier in the episode, Wanda warned her children not to drive by. Maybe it’s Pietro, because he clearly knows a lot more than anyone else in town.
Either way, it’s likely that Wanda’s actions will bring out the next big bad guy in Marvel.
