A false trail behind the scenes fooled fans!
When a behind-the-scenes video from the first episode of WandaVision was released, more observant fans found the Magnum art in the writers’ room. This little detail has bombarded the internet with countless theories about the heroes’ possible presence in the series, which, as we know, did not happen. Now Jac Shaeffer, the project’s producer and showrunner, has spoken about it.
In an interview with ET, Jac Schaeffer said:
“I will categorically say it was not a Red Herring [recurso narrativo que é uma “pista falsa” utilizada para enganar os fãs] inside this video. At least not that I know of. Marvel may have fucked you up [risos]. But I didn’t do it on purpose. “This writers’ room was covered in paper from floor to ceiling, and it had everything, so it was just one of the many things that was on that wall.”
Who is Magnum?
In the comics, Simon Williams, the Magnum, is directly linked to Vision. With a complicated storyline, the character starts off as one of the villains of the Avengers, but ends up joining the team. Additionally, after being kidnapped by Ultron, the villain used his brain patterns to create Vision – unlike the MCU, whose brain is a combination of Ultron and JARVIS.
Magnum later reveals that he is in love with the Scarlet Witch and the two engage in a quick romance. The character is also the Reaper’s brother, a character who appeared as an Easter Egg at the opening of the second episode of WandaVision.
Also in the comics, Magnum has a strong friendship with the Beast, from the X-Men. He was also responsible for creating the Retaliators supergroup, consisting of Demolition, Anti-Venom, Atlas, Virtue, Goliath, Demon Slayer, Century, and Captain Ultra.
Endowed with super strength, sharp reflexes, and the ability to absorb and fire bursts of ionic energy, his power is no joke. On several occasions, powerful heroes like Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk considered him to be one of the most powerful members of the Avengers of all time.
WandaVision is available on Disney +.
