Jac Schaeffer Explains Why Wonder Man Didn’t Make the Cut in ‘WandaVision’

Marvel Studios layered plenty of easter eggs and red herrings into its first Disney Plus streaming series, WandaVision. From Bova milk to the Whizzer to the Grim Reaper’s helmet in the Episode 2 opening to allusions to the devil that led many fans to think Mephisto was coming to the ultimate bait and switch with Evan Peters, the show kept fans on their toes. Even one of the behind-the-scenes features had fans crafting theories after a picture of longtime Avenger and one-time love interest of Wanda Maximoff, Simon Williams, appeared on screen. According to an interview with Entertainment Tonight, showrunner Jac Schaeffer, however, that Wonder Man tease wasn’t really supposed to be a tease.

WandaVision: Did a Featurette Just Spoil Wonder Man's Debut?

I will say emphatically that that was not a red herring inside of a featurette. Not that I know of. Marvel might’ve done you all with dirty with that. [Laughs] But I was not doing that on purpose. That writer’s room was papered from floor to ceiling with just about everything, and so that was just one of the many things that made it up on the wall.

After being unceremoniously dismissed as pretty much the worst Avenger by director Joss Whedon, it seemed that the character might finally find life in WandaVision. However, it seems that Williams once again never made it past the brainstorming stage of the creative process for the project, leaving him sidelined again and leaving fans to wonder if Wonder Man will ever crack the lineup.
