WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen didn't notice the Easter egg in the show's first poster until it was pointed out to her. After playing villain-turned-Avenger Scarlet Witch on the big screen, the actress is taking her character to the small screen via the upcoming Disney+ project from Marvel Studios where she's going to reunite with Paul Bettany who plays Android Vision. The series will also star Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as grown-up Monica Rambeau, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo and Katherine Hahn in a yet to be disclosed role. Meanwhile, Jack Schaeffer will serve as its show runner.
Plot specifics for WandaVision is still tightly under wraps with production yet to begin considering that the show won't release on Disney+ until spring of 2021. But it has been confirmed that its events will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and its story will directly connect to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness as Wanda is also set to appear on the movie. While fans will have to wait a while to see what the show will truly be about, the first piece of marketing material from it was released and it featured a sneaky Easter egg - something that Olsen didn't notice.
Olsen recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! while promoting the second season of Sorry For Your Loss and during her guesting, Kimmel pulled out the one-sheet for WandaVision and pointed out that in the far left of the poster, there's a shadow of the title characters with Wanda seemingly donning her comic accurate head piece. Not knowing about the detail prior, the actress said: "I'm so happy you pointed that out, I didn't notice that."
Whether or not Olsen will don Wanda's costume from the comic books on the big screen was a controversial topic of conversation when it was first announced that the mutant was debuting on the big screen. But as the actress recalled numerous times, director Joss Whedon assured her that she won't be sporting the cool but slightly revealing battle gear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Olsen has reprised the role three more times now and she has yet to wear something similar to the hero's print costume. But it seems like all of that will change once WandaVision hits the airwaves.
This makes sense considering that Wanda has yet to establish herself as one of the most powerful heroes in the MCU. There have been references about it here and there, but she has really yet to unleash the full capacity of her power set. What makes this more interesting is the fact that the show is being marketed as a "half classic sitcom, half MCU spectacular," which sounds like it'll be a grounded show. If anything, the poster itself sells the image of Wanda and Vision living the life of a normal couple in the 1950s. Then again, the fact that the public can't quite predict what Marvel Studios is going to do with WandaVision is a good thing since it means that they're going outside the box and trying new things.
