WandaVision: What's Next For All The Series' Main Characters?

A look ahead.

One year ago, WandaVision, the first in a new wave of MCU TV series to air on Disney Plus, came to an end in a dramatic finale. WandaVision was one of the most streamed shows of 2021, and even now the series, and it's central character Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, are regularly seen trending on social media.

The show's popularity has resulted in an increased appreciation for the characters of Wanda and Vision, as well as making fans fall in love with a few new players in the MCU. With the first anniversary of WandaVision's finale reviving interest in the series yet again, some fans are wondering what's next for the show's characters. So, let's take a look ahead.

Wanda Maximoff, The Scarlet Witch

WandaVision opens with the mystery of what is happening in Westview, New Jersey. A strange barrier has sprung up around the town, and it's residents, including Wanda and a revived Vision, appear to be trapped inside a sitcom.

After a few twists and turns, the spell over Westview is revealed to have been accidentally cast by Wanda in a fit of grief over the original Vision's death. The spell also led her to create a brand-new Vision. Sadly, as she relinquishes control over Westview in the finale, Wanda is forced to say a heartbreaking goodbye to Vision and their twin sons, Tommy and Billy, as they cannot survive outside of the boundaries of Wanda's spell. She departs Westview at the series conclusion, vowing to understand her new abilities as the Scarlet Witch.

Wanda will next be seen in the upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While Strange at first seeks Wanda's help in dealing with the troubles within the Multiverse, many sources suggest that the Scarlet Witch will serve as an antagonist in the film. However, the trailer for the film shows at least two versions of Wanda, and it's quite possible that they aren't both antagonists.

Meanwhile, the increased attention on Wanda after WandaVision, and the considerable hype surrounding her role in Multiverse of Madness, have added fuel to the persistent rumours of a Scarlet Witch solo film sometime in the future. Some fans believe the potential film could be inspired by the 2016 Scarlet Witch comic series, in which Wanda seeks redemption through a quest to fix Earth's magic.


For most of WandaVision, we are dealing with just one Vision, the one inside Westview with Wanda. Over the course of the series, Vision becomes increasingly troubled over what is really happening in Westview. While S.W.O.R.D Director Tyler Hayward initially claims that Wanda stole and revived Vision's body. In episode eight, 'Previously On..', this is revealed not to be the case. Westview's Vision was created by Wanda in her grief. It was Hayward who wanted to revive the original Vision to use as a living weapon. He succeeds in the post credits scene of 'Previously On..', using a sample of Wanda's magic to ressurrect Vision's body as the emotionless White Vision.

Early in the finale, Hayward sends White Vision to kill Wanda and Vision. After a brief battle, the two Visions engage in a philosophical debate regarding which of them is the 'real' Vision. Westview Vision then unlocks White Vision's memories, before White Vision flees to parts unknown.

While Westview's Vision fades away with the end of Wanda's spell, White Vision is still out there somewhere. It is important to note that while White Vision's memories are now intact, he does not possess any of the emotions connected to them, so he will not be the Vision that fans know and love. While we don't have any confirmation of where White Vision will appear next, some fans speculate that he could have a role in the upcoming Armor Wars series. Recent rumours also suggest that Marvel may be developing a series centred on White Vision, possibly even acting as a second season to WandaVision.

Tommy and Billy Maximoff

In WandaVision's third episode, 'Now In Colour!', Wanda gives birth to twin sons, Tommy and Billy. Over the course of the series, the boys age up to five, then ten years old, and both develop superpowers. While Tommy possesses the power of speed, Billy has a skill set similar to his Mother. Sadly, the finale reveals that Tommy and Billy cannot survive outside the boundaries of the hex. Like Vision, they disappear when the spell breaks. However, there is hope for the boys, as in the series' final post credits scene, Wanda hears them calling for her while studying the Darkhold.

Going by the comics, Tommy and Billy are destined to become the Young Avengers Wiccan and Speed. With other members of a potential Young Avengers team slowly emerging throughout the MCU, the boys seem certain to reappear sooner or later, although they may be aged up again when that time comes.

However, it's also possible that the current, ten-year old incarnations of Tommy and Billy (played by young actors Jett Klyne and Julian Hilliard), could appear in Multiverse of Madness. The above screencap, taken from the film's latest trailer, shows two Wandas in a house with a similar layout to the Vision Residence in WandaVision. Eagle-eyed fans have spotted two child sized scooters in the background of the image, which they have taken as evidence towards a possible appearance from the twins.

Agatha Harkness

WandaVision's seventh episode, 'Breaking The Fourth Wall', ended with the plot-twist reveal that Wanda and Vision's nosy neighbour, Agnes, is actually Agatha Harkness, a centuries old witch. Agatha was drawn to Westview by the power of Wanda's spell, wanting to learn how she did it. It is Agatha who reveals that Wanda's powers stem from chaos magic, making her the mythical Scarlet Witch.

In the finale, Wanda and Agatha do battle, with Agatha planning to steal Wanda's abilities for her own. While Agatha has the upper hand at first, Wanda eventually manages to turn the tables by using one of Agatha's own tactics against her, casting runes around Westview to bar Agatha from using magic within the boundaries of the town.

While it's possible Agatha could have a cameo in Multiverse of Madness, it's most likely that the next place we'll see the character is in the spin-off series Agatha: House of Harkness. Many fans are expecting a redemption story for Agatha, as in the comics, she acts as a mentor to Wanda. If this is the case, and a film based on the 2016 Scarlet Witch comic comes to pass, we could see Agatha joining Wanda in the quest to save magic.

Monica Rambeau

After being introduced as a child in Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau returns as an adult in WandaVision. Now a S.W.O.R.D Agent, and recently restored victim of the Blip, Monica enters the main plot of the series when she is called to help FBI Agent Jimmy Woo investigate the Westview anomaly. She soon becomes trapped inside it, and cast as Geraldine. After being evicted from Westview by Wanda in episode three, Monica becomes an unlikely ally to Wanda, recognising that she is in pain, and believes that there is more to gain by trying to work with Wanda rather than against her.

Despite being warned that another trip through the hex could permanently alter her DNA, Monica re-enters Westview in 'Breaking The Fourth Wall, and develops new powers. If Monica's future MCU appearances follow the comics, these powers will allow her to manipulate and transform into energy.

In the finale's mid-credits scene, Monica shares an unexpected encounter with a Skrull, who informs her that a friend of her Mother's, most likely Nick Fury, would like to meet with her in space. This ties in with her appearance in the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels. The film will likely see Monica learning to use her new powers, and possibly repairing her relationship with her Aunt Carol, aka Captain Marvel. Monica was notably tense when Carol was mentioned during WandaVision. Some fans think that Monica may resent Carol for failing to return when her Mother Maria Rambeau, Carol's best friend, was sick, or for failing to stop the Blip, which cost Monica the chance to be there for the last three years of her Mother's life.

Darcy Lewis

Since the events of the second Thor film, Jane Foster's former assistant Darcy Lewis has become a Doctor of Astrophysics. One of what she describes as 'a full clown car' of experts summoned to examine the Westview anomaly in WandaVision, Darcy is the one to discover the signal that allows S.W.O.R.D to see inside Westview with the use of old TVs.

When Monica is thrown off the case by Hayward, Darcy teams up with her and Jimmy to work out what is really going on in Westview, and after being caught in Wanda's expansion of the Hex in episode six, Darcy explains the truth to Vision while trying to help him reach home. A much-loved moment from the finale sees her prevent Hayward's attempt to escape justice by running into him with a funnel-cake truck.

Darcy's future in the MCU is unknown at this point, with her fan favourite status re-affirmed through her appearance in WandaVision, she is almost certain to pop up again at some point. While some fans hope to see her reunited with Thor and Jane, others believe it would be fun to have Darcy join Monica for an outerspace adventure, or team up with Jimmy for an MCU X-Files style series.

Agent Jimmy Woo

After his first appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp, FBI Agent Jimmy Woo reappeared in WandaVision, asking help from S.W.O.R.D when the Hex caused him to lose contact with a member of the Witness Protection Program placed in Westview. After witnessing Monica Rambeau disappear into the Hex, Jimmy remains in the camp set up by S.W.O.R.D outside the town, helping identify the true identities of Westview residents, and working closely with Darcy to examine the TV footage coming out of the town, and after Monica's eviction from Westview, is one of the few to show concern for her wellbeing ahead of whatever intel she can provide.

When Hayward throws Monica, Jimmy, and Darcy off the case, the trio team up to uncover the S.W.O.R.D director's true motives, and find a way to get Wanda back into Westview. In the finale, he summons the FBI to expose Hayward's dodgy dealings.

While Jimmy's next MCU step, like Darcy's, is unknown, there are a few options for the character. Some are expecting him to appear in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, and would like to see him develop a genuine friendship with Scott Lang. Others think he could lead an Agents of Atlas series, being an important member of many incarnations of that team in the comics.

One thing's for sure, WandaVision was, and still is, a special achievement for Marvel Studios. Whatever they've planned for these characters next, it's going to be great.
