The Marvel show was a massive hit for Disney+ with fans all around the world sharing their theories online since the very first episode. However, the series director Matt Shakman fears fans may have become too attached to their theories and hopes for the much-awaited finale coming later today. So much so, he admits it might leave viewers disappointed. 

“I hope that they feel like the journey was satisfying for them,” said Shakman. 

“I know there are so many theories out there; there will be a lot of people who will no doubt be disappointed by one theory or another,” the director braced himself. 

He went on to explain: “We’re always telling this story about Wanda (played by Elizabeth Olsen) dealing with grief and learning how to accept that loss, and hopefully people will find that the finale is surprising but also satisfying and that it feels inevitable because it’s the same story they’ve been watching the whole time.”

“What does hold it all together is that it has a big heart,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

“It’s a love story, it’s a story of loss,” added the showrunner, “and I think that resonates even more in this crazy pandemic that we’re all trying to survive right now.

“I think we can all understand where Wanda’s coming from, so it helps it to resonate a little bit more.

Shakman also praised the show’s star Elizabeth Olsen, who “very much understood that Wanda has experienced more loss than anybody else in the Marvel universe.”

“She’s lost her parents, she’s lost her brother, she’s lost the love of her life by now, and she’s right on the edge.”

He also added: “In some ways, [Wanda is] as close as Marvel gets to exploring mental illness, really — like, how do you hold together your reality when you’re constantly experiencing so much trauma? She taps into that so beautifully.”

Tapping into the comic book sources for WandaVision, fans have come ups with many theories on how the show will end, the main one believing the Devil himself makes an appearance in Westview. 

Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) is closely related to the comic book character of Mephisto, the Marvel version of the Devil. 

After the reveal that Wanda is the Scarlet Witch, a being able to control Chaos Magic, fans believe Agnes is after her powers to save Mephisto, as her limited powers only allowed her to turn him into her rabbit Scratchy.

Another theory sees the White Vision, which appeared at the end of the latest episode, enter the Westview hex and transform into an old MCU villain, Ultron (James Spader). 

Ultron was defeated by Vision (Paul Bettany) in a previous film but viewers weren’t shown exactly why, leaving fans to speculate that he could return. 

As Vision’s body was originally created as a body for Ultron, who is also an artificial intelligence just like Vision, fans believe that Vision absorbed him instead of killing him and that Ultron has now taken over Vision’s restored body. 

Serving as a weapon under SWORD, White Vision will most likely head into Westview and face off against the real Vision. 

Viewers are also discussing how the finale will wrap up Monica Rambeau’s (Teyonah Parris) newfound superpowers and transition into her comic book identity of Spectrum. 

The show revealed that she gained powers when her genes mutated by crossing the Hex’s border multiple times. 

Marvel has teased that mutants and the X-Men will be introduced to the MCU shortly and fans are looking forward to seeing how the WandaVision finale will set that up. 

After the show, Wanda’s story will pick up again in 2022 in the upcoming film Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. 

WandaVision is available to stream on Disney+.
