While Feige wouldn’t fully reveal if Wanda and Vision might be seeing or even directly dealing with anyone from Hydra, he did say that long-time fans of the MCU should remain as vigilant as ever about easter eggs. With everything in the MCU being connected, and WandaVision being no exception, there are hints about Hyrda planted throughout the episodes. In a twist specific to the very meta set-up of the Disney+ series, you’ll likely find those nods to the classic Marvel antagonists in its commercials. No, not real commercials as the streamer doesn’t have those, but the ads created explicitly for and featured in WandaVision.
“If you’re looking for easter eggs, pay close attention to the commercials,” Feige said. “Other truths of the show begin to leak out, and commercials was an early idea for that.”
While that’s good news for Marvel fanatics familiar with the cinematic universe’s growing catalog, it might present problems for viewers who are new to the MCU and might not pick up on those references immediately. But Feige promises those viewers should also keep their eyes open. They’ll too have a chance to catch the references, even if they come later during their viewing.
“If you have been watching the movies, you might be able to start connecting what those things mean to the past,” he said. “And if this is the very first Marvel MCU thing you’re watching, it’s just a strange version of a ’50s commercial or a ’60s commercial that you’ll have to keep watching the series to understand.”
