Speculations about which villains are doing their thing on WandaVision (Jac Schaeffer, 2021), the Disney Plus series with which the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues, have been very noisy. One of them puts Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) herself as the real antagonist. Another directs suspicions towards Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg), director of SWORD, as a member of Hydra. And, in the episode “Breaking the Fourth Wall” (1×07), one of the great theories that were being handled has been confirmed: that the neighbor Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) is, in fact, the witch Agatha Harkness.
Paul Bettany: “I can’t talk about Mephisto right now because I’m worried about getting fired”
However, there are those who go further and suggest that she collaborates with a superior villain: the extradimensional demon Mephisto, above all, closely linked to the alienated protagonist of WandaVision in the comics. But the name Nightmare has also been suggested, drawing its power from the psychic energy of those who dream. And while Westview residents don’t appear to be asleep, there is talk of “waking up” at the touch of Vision (Paul Bettany). And Tyler Hayward refers to the magical phenomenon as a nightmare twice during the chapter “All-New Halloween Spooktacular!” (1×06).

Back with Mephisto in ‘WandaVision’
Either Mephisto is not involved but does not want to give clues anyway, or he is planned to participate in the near future of the MCU or he is guilty of everything in WandaVision
Be that as it may, Paul Bettany has released some curious words in an interview to Esquire: “The screenwriter, Jac Schaeffer, is a genuine genius. I think it was a lot of fun for her to see all of the fan reactions and theories, and some of them are eerily accurate. But as for this one you mention, Mephisto? I can’t talk about him right now because I’m worried about getting fired. ” And one of these possibilities must be the correct one: either the devil is not involved but does not want to give clues anyway, or he is planned to participate in the near future of the MCU or he is guilty of everything in WandaVision.
