Since the first trailer for WandaVision was released, there have been many questions followed by fans about the big theoretical sprees. While some of the questions have more or less been resolved – as Kathryn Hahn indeed plays the Marvel Witch, Agatha Harkness, the Mysterious Beekeeper works for SWORD, etc. – some mysteries still need an appropriate answer. And the biggest of all was the bottle of wine that debuts in the trailer – is that a solid nod to the storyline of the reality-changing Marvel Comics House of M? Well, Elizabeth Olsen has finally expressed her thoughts on the wild theories swirling around this particular possibility.

Now, the multiple trailers, teasers, and now a new clip for WandaVision have established the base story of the series – Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision will be seen residing in a suburban society as a couple. married. They will live in an alternate reality – a classic TV sitcom style life created by Wanda to deal with the fact that Vision died after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

Back in September 2020, the first trailer for WandaVision was released and it contains a treasure trove of Easter eggs and references. One of those flashing and missing scenes was when Wanda levitates a bottle of wine on the table to fill a glass. In the brief scene, we notice that there is a very prominent “M” on the neck of the bottle, which also has a label with a French title “Maison du Mepris” or “House of Contempt”.
When it’s Marvel we’re talking about, there are rarely any details without substantial meaning and so it’s an obvious nod to the script for Brian Michael Bendis’ 2005 comic book “House of M”. Here, Wanda suffered a mental breakdown and twisted the fabric of reality herself to recreate her lost twins, who are, FYI, also there in the trailer. Too many coincidences, don’t you think?

Well, Jimmy Kimmel also thinks that like when WandaVision star Elizabeth appeared on her live virtual show, the TV host was quick to drill her on the hitting Easter Egg.

“This bottle of wine. That said Maison du Mépris. That translates to ‘House of Misery’, ”he said, eliciting a laugh from Olsen offscreen. “This could mean that the series is based on the popular House of M comic book, in which Wanda has a breakdown. “

Unlike Tom Holland, who is infamous for leaking spoilers on his films, Olsen sidestepped Kimmel’s in-depth questions perfectly and instead credited “our accessory Russell” for adding the bottle of wine, adding that he “Would be a very, very smart man if he put that in there.” ”

Call it wishful thinking, but Olsen’s knowing smile only serves to solidify the possibility that WandaVision will see Wanda do more damage than just alter the decade she is in. House of M comic book series, Wanda has induced a reality where mutants rule humans and they, in turn, are ruled by Magneto and his “House of M.” This distorted reality allows Wanda to find her sons. But the chaos ends with Magneto brutally killing Quicksilver, prompting Wanda to utter the famous phrase “No More Mutants” and create a whole new reality where the number of mutants around the world drops from millions to just a few hundred.
If WandaVision follows the House of M storyline, we can expect Marvel Studios to craft its own unique version of events to fit the MCU. So, anyone planning to watch the Disney + series while expecting it to be a cheesy sitcom should probably prepare for a wild ride. You’re watching the chat between Kimmel and Olsen here.
