Marvel celebrates the one-year anniversary of WandaVision with the release of a new “Shattered Reality” poster. WandaVision was the first TV show set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which marked a new era for the franchise with long-form storytelling. The series was created by The Hustle writer Jac Schaeffer, who would go on to co-write the story for Marvel’s Black Widow. WandaVision features Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany returning in the title roles, along with other actors from previous MCU films, including Thor star Kat Dennings, and Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s Randall Park. The series also featured Debra Jo Rupp, Teyonah Parris, and Kathryn Hahn as standout villain Agatha Harkness.
WandaVision picks up after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, where Vision perished, leaving Wanda in an emotionally vulnerable state. The show starts with Wanda and Vision living an idyllic life in suburbia, presented in the style of old television sitcoms. However, as odd occurrences begin to plague them, it becomes clear that something is amiss. As the series builds, it looks like Wanda’s powers have grown out of control, with her being responsible for enslaving a town to play along with her delusion. However, as WandaVision made clear, it was Agatha “all along,” leading to an epic showdown.
A year after WandaVision‘s release, Marvel has unveiled a new “Shattered Reality” poster that highlights various aspects of the series. Created by artist Adam Schickling, the “Shattered Reality” poster is available through Dark Ink for $50. It features Wanda front and center in the Scarlet Witch costume as shards of glass shatter around her with reflections of other characters and her numerous WandaVision sitcom looks. The shards feature Park’s Jimmy Woo, Dennings’ Darcy Lewis, Hahn’s Agatha Harkness, Parris’ Monica Rambeau, and Evan Peters as Wanda’s faux brother Pietro Maximoff, aka Ralph Bohner.

Olsen’s next appearance as Wanda Maximoff is set for this summer’s Doctor Strange 2, titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The trailer for the sequel, which features Wanda/Scarlet Witch, was first shown after the credits of Spider-Man: No Way Home before making its way online. Wanda’s role in the film is under wraps, though various rumors hint that she’ll be joined by other characters that could include a version of X-Men‘s Professor X. One particularly strange rumor theorizes that Tom Cruise will feature as a variant of Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Following the events of WandaVision, Vision’s future is still unknown, though things are open for Bettany to return. Hahn’s villainous performance landed Agatha her own show, Agatha: House of Harkness, which WandaVision‘s Schaeffer is also creating. WandaVision also served as an origin story for Parris’ Monica Rambeau, a character previously featured in Captain Marvel, though played by a younger actress. Monica Rambeau is next set to appear in The Marvels. Currently, WandaVision looks to stand as a limited series, though Marvel’s ever-evolving universe could mean more down the road, and the series has done a lot of work to set up future projects. This new poster certainly seems to be a nod to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Strange’s “mirror dimension,” and WandaVision‘s MCU connections aren’t likely to finish up here.
