Paul Bettany confirms WandaVision Episode 9’s Big Cameo is… SPOILER ALERT! This post discusses major spoilers for the series finale of the Marvel Studios and Disney+ Original Series WandaVision. If you do not wish to have major aspects of the episode ruined for you we recommend you stop reading past this point.
The cast of WandaVision has been teasing a huge cameo appearance in the final episodes of the series, and it turns out, we met them in Episode 8!
That’s right, the big cameo was… Paul Bettany himself! Only this time, he was “White Vision” also known in the comics as Anti-Vision. During a conversation with Good Morning America Bettany shared:
“Yeah, you know when you think something is gonna’ be funny and then you panic? Which is what I actually did because fans started guessing who it might be. They were guessing people like [Benedict Cumberbatch] or [Patrick Stewart] and I was thinking, “God, that’s a good idea, and they’re going to be so disappointed when they find out it’s me.”“
Needless to say, there are fans who are very dissapointed because of the fan-created cameos that seemed highly probable, such as the introduction of Reed Richards rumored to be played by John Krasinski, Patrick Stewart returning as Professor Xavier to help Wanda, or Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and kicking off the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Despite not having a huge cameo appearance at the end of the series, WandaVision has pioneered a path for Phase 4 of the MCU and we can’t wait to see what’s next for The Scarlet Witch!
To prevent the spread of spoilers, we are asking that you refrain from sharing details in the comments, but we would love to hear your reaction to the finale and your thoughts on the series as a whole. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel and Disney+!
