‘WandaVision’ adds Nick Fury/Black Widow Easter Egg!
Like most Marvel movies and shows, WandaVision is filled with Easter Eggs as well. They’re constant references to many of the other diverse characters in the MCU. But, you have to be a little curious and fast with your eyes to spot them on time. And it looks like many fans may have missed this one great easter egg from episode 6.
A very cute easter egg from WandaVision!
WandaVision is a crazy blend of magic, sitcoms of every generation, mystery, comedy, thriller, and almost every episode has a unique theme in itself. And episode 6 was no exception. In it, we saw Wanda (Elizabeth Olson) dealing with the fact that her brother Pietro (previously played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who was shot dead in Avengers: Age of Ultron, has come back from the dead and doesn’t look anything like he did before. He is now played by Evans Peters, who has also played a version of the character in previous X-Men films. Those were X-Men Days of Future Past, X-Men Apocalypse, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Other than this emotional conflict, WandaVision’s episode 6 was also based on Halloween. And Wanda as well as Vision (Paul Bettany) donned the costumes that their comic book counterparts did, aptly. But that’s not all. There was also a nod to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff. Digital Spy caught this easter egg from the episode:

At the beginning of the episode, Wanda berates her sons Billy and Tommy as they’re wildly running around. Then, she mentions to Pietro how she looks even worse than how their parents would dress them for Halloween in Sokovia. We then saw a flashback of young Wanda and Pietro wearing the costumes of Natasha (Black Widow) and Nick Fury with a red-haired braid and an eye patch. It was a very cute reference to two very important characters from the MCU. Were you able to spot it in WandaVision? Let us know in the comments below!
