Wanda Maximoff and her family WandaVision is now featured in the animated logo that showcases all of the Marvel Studios films, and a young star couldn’t be more excited about it.
Julian Hilliard, who plays Billy Maximoff in both WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnesstweeted in response to a fan’s screenshot of the moment he appears in the latest version of the intro that played previously Multiverse of Madness. “I freaked out at the premiere when I saw this,” Hilliard wrote. “It was a dream of mine to make the @MarvelStudios intro!”
The iconic intro used for films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe features a variety of recognizable characters and audio clips from previous films that flicker by until they resolve into the timeless Marvel Comics logo. Animation has been updated regularly as more characters have been introduced into the shared universe, but has traditionally only come from movies. WandaVisionas the first MCU series created for Disney+ with story arcs that tie into the films, it could herald a new trend in advertising design.
WandaVision was also specifically relevant to Multiverse of Madness, which continues the story of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda/Scarlet Witch after she was corrupted by Darkhold, a book of powerful spells. The events of the TV series saw Wanda, grieving the loss of her lover Vision, create a new reality in which he was still alive. Within the Westview dimensional pocket, Wanda and Vision had twins, Hilliard’s Billy and his brother Tommy. However, after being forced to let go of the Westview Illusion, Wanda believes that her children still exist in an alternate reality and that she can use the Darkhold to return to them – no matter how many lives she destroys in the process.
in the Multiverse of MadnessOlsen’s Wanda returned as the play’s villain, and Hilliard and Jett Klyne also reprized their respective ones WandaVision Roles as Billy and Tommy. Although Wanda’s grief-fuelled obsession meant she ultimately fell short of her goal of permanently reuniting with her children, the introduction of the multiverse means that her characters, and the actors who play them, may have some form of relevance for future MCU films or TV will return displays.
WandaVision can be streamed on Disney+. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently in cinemas.
