Spoiler alert! Years 1990 and 2000 were in the spotlight of this new episode of WandaVision, in which many easter eggs awaited us once again.

Episode 6 of WandaVision , which we have reviewed , has shed light on the true intentions of several characters. S.W.O.R.D has proven not to be such an upright organization, while Wanda seems increasingly confused about what is going on in Westview. What a little more confirm the theories according to which the Scarlet Witch of the MCU would not act alone, and would have perhaps even made a pact with the Devil. While waiting to discover the surprises in store for us in episode 7 of WandaVision , and if we come back a little on these new easter eggs that should not be missed in episode 6?

A episode inspired by Malcolm

If the previous sitcoms from which was inspired WandaVision perhaps didn’t mean anything to you, because rather anchored in American culture, that of episode 6 should be familiar to you. Besides, you may have recognized the very particular style of the credits and the way the twins have to address the camera directly. WandaVision was indeed inspired by the cult series Malcolm , even going so far as to copy the style of the curtains.

Did you know ? Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters aren’t just linked thanks to the character of Pietro Maximoff. The two of them also starred together in a superhero movie of a different genre, comedy Kick-Ass . While Aaron Taylor-Johnson played a teenager trying to become a vigilante, Evan Peters played his best friend. A reference to the film seems to have crept in at the end of a dialogue between Wanda, Billy, Tommy and Pietro, in which the expression kick-ass is repeated twice in the original version.

Darcy’s role in Thor

When Darcy, Jimmy and Monica once again stand up to Agent Hayward, the latter condescends and doesn’t seem not take them seriously. He even asks who the sassy of the gang is. A remark that undoubtedly refers to the clichés of sitcoms, but which also works for the character of Darcy in the franchise Thor, which plays a similar role in the first two films.

Familiar Costumes

The costumes of Halloween worn by Wanda, Vision, Pietro, Tommy (Speed) and Billy (Wiccan) are directly inspired by those worn by these same characters in the comics. With the exception of course of Tommy who wears exactly the same as Pietro.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

As a reminder of the events that previously took place in the series, the images of Pietro’s death in Avengers: Age of Ultron are shown, but this is not the only reference to the second installment on the Avengers. In the last part of the episode Pietro compliments Wanda on what she has done with Westview. He tells her that the result is a far cry from the nightmares she may have given people in the past, and the red stuff she was pushing out of her fingers. This is a reference to the actions of Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron , and in particular to Nightmarish visions that she brought to the Avengers using her powers, symbolized by curls of red energy.

Top Gun

Before leaving at lightning speed with Tommy, Pietro exclaims “I feel the need for speed” , before clapping his nephew’s hand. A line and a gesture that are reminiscent of those of the character of Maverick, played by Tom Cruise in the cult film Top Gun.

Billy and Tommy: from future Young Avengers?

In episode 6, the twins demonstrated their powers. Billy has similar ones to Wanda’s, while his brother Tommy is blessed with super speed, like his uncle Pietro. In the comics they call themselves Wiccan and Speed ​​respectively. They are part of

Young Avengers, a team of young superheroes who could soon form in the MCU thanks to Ant-Man 3 . Watching them use their superpowers the way they do, you start to think they’re real too.

A well thought out choice of films

While Pietro and Wanda stay in the city center and chat, we can see behind them a cinema in which The films À Nous Quatre and The Incredibles are shown. These two titles were of course not chosen at random, the first being a film with two twins which set out to mend their parents, like Billy and Tommy, while the second centers around a family of superheroes, from kids to parents.
