This Was The Inspiration Behind S.W.O.R.D.’s Look In WandaVision

As viewers have discovered, the retro sitcom world in WandaVision “starring” Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and her husband Vision (Paul Bettany) is actually encased inside of a force field dubbed the “Westview Anomaly” by S.W.O.R.D. — the Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division, which is actually known as the Sentient World Observation and Response Department in the Marvel comics. Naturally, it’s a different organization than S.H.I.E.L.D. (the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and thus, Worthington says, the design of S.W.O.R.D. in WandaVision had to have a look distinct from its fellow agency.

“S.W.O.R.D. is a space agency, right? The MCU space agency. So I started with [the idea of], ‘I’m going to look at NASA. What does that look like?’ Obviously, it can’t be NASA because it’s the MCU, so it’s inflected with the MCU sensibility. But actually, it’s not all that hard because that’s the process, isn’t it? ‘What would a space agency look like in the MCU?'” Worthington details to Looper. “S.H.I.E.L.D. is a distinct thing that has its own function, and they have their own logic to that.”

While “there are some visual similarities” between S.W.O.R.D. and S.H.I.E.L.D., Worthington explains, “they have to be different.” As he notes, “There have to be differences simply because they have very different functions that they perform. So that makes it — I wouldn’t say it’s easy — but it takes you to different places so that it’s not going to feel outside of the world of the MCU, but it’s going to have its own personality.”
