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 been more or less resolved – since Kathryn Hahn does certainly play the Marvel Witch, Agatha Harkness, the Mysterious Beekeeper works for SWORD, etc. – some mysteries still need a suitable answer. And the biggest of all was the bottle of wine that debuts in the trailer – is that a solid nod to the reality-altering Marvel Comics House of M storyline? 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 fundamental 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 indisputable 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 blink and miss scenes was when Wanda puts a bottle of wine on the table to fill a glass. In the brief scene, we notice that there’s a very prominent “M” on the neck of the bottle, which also has a label with the French title “Maison du Mepris” or “House of Distempt”.
When it is Marvel we’re talking about, there are hardly ever any details without substantial meaning so it is an apparent nod to Brian Michael Bendis’ 2005 comic script.House M“. Here, Wanda suffered a mental breakdown and twisted the fabric of reality herself to recreate her lost twin, who are, FYI, also in the trailer. Too many coincidences, do not you think?

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

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

Unlike Tom Holland, who is infamous for spilling spoilers on his movies, Olsen sidestepped Kimmel’s in-depth questions perfectly and instead credited “our accessory to Russell” for adding the bottle of wine , adding that he “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 likelihood that WandaVision will see Wanda do more damage than simply change the decade she’s in. House of M comic series, Wanda induced a reality where mutants rule humans and they, in turn, are ruled by Magneto and “House of M.” This distorted reality allows Wanda to find her kids. But the chaos ends with Magneto brutally killing Quicksilver, prompting Wanda to say the famous phrase “No More Mutants” and creating a whole new reality where the number of mutants around the globe drops from millions for only 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 most likely prepare for a wild ride. You are watching the chat between Kimmel and Olsen here.
