Wanda featured in new Disney+ show called Wonder Man

We last saw Wanda in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, but we might see her in Wonder Man soon. During Multiverse of Madness, she played the villain and caused significant damage while also taking lives. All the while, she was completely corrupted by the Darkhold as she searched the multiverse for her children. However, when she saw the destruction she had wrought, she changed her mind. She destroyed Mountain Wundagore and let it crash on her. There was a burst of her signature red chaos magic.

Fans theorize that Wanda is still alive while her chaos magic protected her from Wundagore’s fall. Plus, knowing the MCU, no one can really be considered dead unless and until their bodies are shown. This brings us to the theory that Wanda appears in Wonder Man. The theory has been supported by Daniel Richtman and Youtuber Grace Randolph.

What are the speculations?

Marvel is supposedly working on a project involving Wonder Man. We’ll get into who he is and how he’s connected to Scarlet Witch later. Wonder Man will be a Disney+ show led by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton. Shooting and production will most likely begin in 2023 next year. The project will also see the involvement of Andrew Guest, who you may know from Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Since Wonder Man is strongly associated with Wanda and Vision in the comics, the series could give Wanda another chance to right her mistakes. After all, she must be responsible for the countless deaths of wizards and the decimation of the multiverse. The show may also bring back White Vision that we last saw in the WandaVison series. We don’t know anything about the cast yet. However, there are rumors that Nathan Fillion could be involved.

Who is Wonder Man?

Wonder Man, also known as Simon Williams, was not born with powers. He was treated with ionic rays and radiations by none other than the evil mastermind Baron Zemo. This gave him his superpowers, but also made him dependent on Zemo to keep him alive. You see, there was one major side effect of this treatment, his metabolism was altered. Wonder Man would perish if not regularly administered with a certain antidote. So Zemo used Wonder Man to try and defeat the Avengers.

But he changed his mind and refused to betray them. He lost Zemo’s antidote and sacrificed his life. However, unknown to the Avengers, he wasn’t actually dead. It turned out that he was in a deathly coma. He was later revived and went on to join the West Coast Avengers. He also joined Hollywood as an actor. His powers include superhuman strength, stamina, stamina and near invulnerability. An interesting strength is its ability to jump hundreds of meters.

How are Wonder Man and Wanda connected?

Wanda and Wonder Man

In the comics, Wonder Man and Wanda are in a relationship. This could be explored in the Wonder Man series, especially now that Wanda and Vision are no longer together following the deaths of Westview and Vision in Infinity Wars. As for Wanda, she too was once part of the West Coast Avengers. She developed feelings for Wonder Man as they worked together on the same team. Wonder Man died on a mission for Force Works. This affected Wanda to such an extent that she went ahead and revived him with her powers. They aspired to a relationship that ended prematurely due to Wanda’s lingering feelings for Vision.

Wonder Man is also closely associated with Vision as he played an extremely important role in the creation of Vision. When Ultron created Vision, he used Wonder Man’s brainwaves. This pretty much made Vision his brother. In the future, they also go on different adventures together and have many stories.

On the other hand, Marvel could very well decide to bring in a Wanda variant. Since the Multiverse of Madness we have been exposed to the different Wandas in all universes. After Earth-616 Wanda’s fall from grace, it would be quite difficult in the eyes of the public to redeem her. So introducing another Wanda, maybe even Earth-838’s who is also a mother of two sons, might just be the way to go.
