Comedy Horror Do's And Don'ts

The little genre-that-could has come a long way, and with it, many a trope that sometimes delights and sometimes makes us groan harder than when we first heard the logline for "The Hunt."

As the world anxiously awaits Friday's season finale of WandaVision, several fans have flocked to social media to share their theories for what's to come in Westview -- and the MCU as a whole. Amid discussions dissecting the nuances of Tyler Hayward's true intentions and Agatha's goals, it seems the show's star, Elizabeth Olsen (Who as many people are just now learning, is Mary Kate and Ashley's little sister), has us all beat -- predicting the entire show during an interview nearly six years ago. 

Back in April of 2015, Olsen and Aaron Taylor Johnson, a.k.a the MCU's first/non-Evan Peters Quicksilver sat down with ScreenRant to discuss Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Between conversations about director Joss Whedon's script cover letter, and nailing down a Sokovian accent, Olsen was asked about the future of Wanda Maximoff and what projects she'd like to see her character take on in the future. 

"I mean, my favorite is House of M, but that would never happen," Olsen explained. "If she could have two fake babies and everyone tell her that they don't exist and for her to just go nuts, that would be unbelievable." For those out of the loop, House of M is a 2005 X-Men comic centered around the Scarlet Witch enduring a mental breakdown and altering reality with the goal of saving her two lost sons -- sound familiar?  

Even with this spot-on prediction, Olsen still seemed to have doubts over whether Disney, notorious for its highly-aggressive dedication to family-friendly programming, would delve into such a bleak story. "I don't think they're going to do that," she said with a laugh. "It might be a little too dark for the Marvel universe. When she loses her mind, it's my favorite thing in the comics."

Yet as BuzzFeed pointed out in their coverage of the psychic clip, WandaVision's parallels to House of M could help elucidate the connection between the show and Doctor Strange, as during the series, the superhero "is present when Wanda gives birth and he tries to find the source of her madness later on." Although as we saw throughout the course of the show, such wasn't the case for WandaVision, it still hints at how the two could interact in the final episode. Furthermore, in February, Marvel's President Kevin Feige confirmed that "Lizzie Olsen will go from WandaVision to the Doctor Strange film."

Regardless of if/how the two convene in the series finale, it seems all of our questions may be answered in two short days. Check your 3 a.m. Friday alarms, folks! It's almost WandaVision time!
