Everyone knows how much Marvel loves Easter Eggs — so you know there are a ton of them in their new Disney+ show, WandaVision.
Who doesn’t love Easter Eggs? I know that I do — especially in Marvel shows and films. They do a great job of hiding things in plain site, so I am sure I missed some. However, here is a list of the Easter Eggs that I discovered in Marvel’s WandaVIsion on Disney+. Be warned, there could be spoilers ahead!
Warning: Spoilers For Marvel’s WandaVision Ahead
WandaVision Easter Eggs
When each episode is released, I will come back and add my findings. So be sure to check back every Friday through the course of WandaVision to see what else I have found. Marvel is great at hiding Easter Eggs so if I miss one that you think should be added, let me know in the comments and I will!
WandaVision Episode 1 Easter Eggs
Dick Van Dyke nod in the intro of episode one where Vision steps through a chair, instead of tripping over it, as he carries Wanda into their home.
August 23rd is the date on the calendar with a heart drawn on it — that just so happens to be the day at the 2019 D23 Expo where Kevin Feige gave a lot of WandaVision announcements. These included that Kat Dennings and Randall Park were set to reprise their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles of Darcy Lewis and Jimmy Woo and that Kathryn Hahn had joined the cast in an undisclosed role.
Vision’s boss is named Mr. Hart. In Marvel comics there is a character named Jack Hart, AKA Jack Of Hearts, who has a tie to Scarlet Witch. He worked with the Avengers and after dying, Wanda reanimates him during a mental breakdown where she attacks the Avengers. This character is not him, as his name is Arthur, but it seems like a fun nod to the comics.
There is a commercial for a toaster right in the middle of the episode. One that is called the ToastMate 2000 and it is from Stark Industries. I kind of loved this, but it should have been called the Toastmate 3000 if you ask me.
Vision mentions to his boss that his wife is from Europe, and then says that her dress is Sokovian. As we know Sokovia plays an important part in the MCU, especially for Wanda, who lost her brother there.
The first episode gives us the bottle of wine I mentioned in my WandaVision trailer breakdown. The label reads Mansion Du Mepris, which translates to House of Misery – House of M. An incredible story line from the comic books.
As the credits on the fake TV show role, we see directed by Abe Brown, who is a member of the academic decathlon team at Midtown School of Science and Technology in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
At the end of the episode someone is writing in a book with S.W.O.R.D. symbol on it. In the MCU this stands for Sentient Weapon (not World) Observation Response Division. The hand looks female, and I suspect this could be Darcy’s return.
WandaVision Episode 2 Easter Eggs
The intro this time is a nod to Bewitched.
Wanda discovers a toy in the bushes. It is the only thing in color, as this is a black and white episode, and they are the Iron Man colors — red and gold. It also has the symbol for S.W.O.R.D., like the notebook in the previous episode.
The Cabinet of Mysteries has, what looks like, a drawing of an Infinity Stone on the doors.
Agnes is wearing a broach that gives off serious Agatha Harkness vibes.
The commercial in episode 2 is for a Strucker watch, which has to be a nod to Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. The watch also features the Hydra symbol as well as the word Hydra.
Someone on the radio says “Wanda, who is doing this to you?” — sounds to me like Randall Park’s voice AKA Jimmy Woo.
The magic show is actually a nod to two lesser known comic book characters — Glynis and Ilya Zarkov, whose stage names are Glamor and Illusion — the names that Wanda and Vision used in their magic act.
WandaVision Episode 3 Easter Eggs
This episode intro and theme is inspired by The Brady Bunch.
Vision wants to name their child Billy, and Wanda wants to name him Tommy, which is an Easter Egg form the comic books — as these are their children’s names.
The commercial break in this episode is for Hydra Soak Luxury Bath Powder — complete with the Hydra symbol. This is also a reference to Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. — see clip below.

The butterfly that lands on Vision’s nose is an Monarch butterfly. We have seen this before in Doctor Strange when Stephen Strange sees the insect land on his hand during his travels within the vast multiverse.
Geraldine is wearing a necklace with the S.W.O.R.D. symbol.
WandaVision Episode 4 Easter Eggs
Maria “Photon” Rambeau — a nod to the comic books.
Jimmy Woo finally learns close up magic and uses it to flip out his business card! A throwback to Ant-Man and the Wasp, when he was trying to learn.
WandaVision Episode 5 Easter Eggs
The dog Sparky is the same name of the dog that Vision and his family have in the comic run, Vision.
The boys wear colors that are the same as their superhero costumes – Tommy wears green and Billy wears red.
They keep asking if Wanda has a nickname, with the answer no. This was a nod to her name being Scarley Witch, I assume.
There is a scene very similar to how Wanda found Vision’s corpse in the comic books.
Darcy calling the bubble, the Hex. Wanda’s power is called a hex power in the comics.
Pietro is back! Not really an Easter Egg but he is the Fox cast version, Evan Peters.
WandaVision Episode 6 Easter Eggs
Malcolm in the Middle inspired intro.
The costumes of course! Wanda’s OG Scarlet Witch costume, Vision’s OG outfit, and even Wiccan’s comic book costume! Speed and Pietro both also don the X-Men Quicksilver costume.
The Vision and the Scarlet Witch comic book also has a Halloween tie as the first issue is set on Halloween! Issue 5 also takes place on Halloween.
Pietro mentions he has the X-Y chromosome, which having a mutant, and member of the X-Men, say he is X.. was exciting.
The movie theater sign shows they are playing The Parent Trap (twin movie) and The Incredibles (superhero family movie).
The fact that Agnes is dressed as a witch — does that mean she IS Agatha Harkness?
WandaVision Episode 6 Easter Eggs
The Office/Modern Family vibes in this one.
The drug, Nexus, is a nod to the Nexus of All Realities.
Monica transforms into Spectrum and gets her superpowers.
The fly on the wall — is that Mephisto? He does disguise himself as a fly in the comics.
The Darkhold is in Agatha’s basement.
