Disney has been on the move to bring fans even more of Marvel stories to life ever since their acquisition of 21st Century Fox back in March. Fans have been curious as to what will happen with the X-Men and how they will be integrated into the next phase of the MCU. We stumbled upon one Reddit user who goes by the name of ak2sup where he goes into what he thinks the WandaVision series on Disney+ will actually set up the X-Men for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Investors had the luck of seeing Disney+ before everyone else. This happened last month. Disney had also given attendees information about upcoming movies and series they can expect to see on the streaming service. In an interview with Variety, Elizabeth Olsen gave some insight further on what we can expect.
There’s quite a few other comic books that we’re pulling from and it’s going to be Wanda and the Vision ( WandaVision ) , and I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the ’50s, Paul [Bettany] and I are really excited. They have a great group of writers. I think it’s going to be a total of six hours.Rachel Yang, Variety
Here is what the Reddit user says:
According to the rumors, Wanda & vision tv series is set in 50s. I think its correct, the 50s hint in endgame by hulk might be a big deal rather than a joke, setting up the story in 50s could be a reason to bring mutants in MCU. Here’s my idea on what happens in the series – ‘Vision get revived and reunite with wanda but she wants a peacefull life which is nearly impossible in present day. So, she decides to live in another timeline where there are no supervillains or alien invasions. Wanda decides to live in 50s era with Vision and use the time machine of Hulk to travel to 50s. There, she have a simple life with vision , no superheroing. But, one day something goes wrong forcing wanda to unleash her full potential (same thing she did in HOUSE OF M storyline). The energy surge released by wanda ultimately results in the creation of mutants, it activate their x gene and give them superpowers, this way mutants are introduced into MCU.’ Wanda and vision take inspirations from HOUSE OF M storyarcs but in MCU, its her time-travelling decision which fails and results in the creation of mutants. I Think this will what happens in Wanda & visionPosted byu/ak2sup
