But if it WERE the Darkhold, this extremely highly effective e book would have been written by Chthon, a demon/elder god who has figured prominently in numerous Wanda and Agatha Harkness tales over time. It’s mentioned that this e book is what created the primary vampire (hmmmm…the MCU does have a Blade film within the works), created werewolves (certainly it’s solely a matter of time earlier than Werewolf by Night exhibits up…on the upcoming Moon Knight sequence, maybe), and extra. If the MCU goes down a extra supernatural route for some of its future installments, then the Darkhold could be a key piece of that.
But once more, this seems very totally different than the Darkhold we’ve seen on these different exhibits.
Reed Richards…you coming or what?
Still no signal of the mysterious “aerospace engineer,” however does the mockumentary/sitcom tone this episode shares with The Office tease John Krasinski’s arrival as Reed Richards?
- The official uniform Monica is sporting below her area swimsuit seems very very similar to some of the outfits she has worn in numerous superheroic identities within the comics, together with when she was Captain Marvel. It’s acceptable since this episode is one other large step in her superheroic origin story, and now there’s no extra query that she’s gaining powers from her repeated journeys by way of the Hex.
- It’s nearly actually Monica’s new powers that permit her to make it by way of the Hex this time, and when she comes out she will be able to see power patterns and signatures.
- Monica sticks the trademark “Superhero Landing” when she’s confronting Wanda. As Deadpool will attest, it’s actually exhausting in your knees. Totally impractical, however all of them do it.
- When Agnes is dragging Wanda into her home, Wanda factors at Monica and the entire thing is framed just like the “two ladies yelling at the white cat” meme. Impossible to unsee. Fun reality: the white cat’s actual title is Smudge.
Monica’s journey by way of The Hex pays homage to the particular results approach Robert Zemeckis used within the wormhole sequence for 1997’s Contact. During the scene in query, variations of Jodie Foster’s face seem to ghost out from her physique, voicing her inner ideas and recollections. By the time Monica emerges from the Hex barrier, she is “ok to go” as a superpowered being.
Contact’s central character, Ellie Arroway, is a lady who has misplaced her entire household however suppresses her grief and feels on their lonesome within the universe. Can’t see a WandaImaginative and prescient connection right here, no sir!
