WandaVision is full of references to different superhero properties, however we positively didn’t count on a reference to Kick-Ass to indicate up! The 2010 superhero film (and superhero film satire) is technically primarily based on a Marvel property, however its presence in WandaVision is solely a joke about casting, not a touch about something we must be theorizing about.
The scene is so fast, you may miss it! Throughout a trick-or-treating sequence, Tommy is especially delighted at his uncle Pietro’s suggestion that they go trick-or-treating collectively (with the implied benefit of Pietro’s tremendous pace). “Yeah, kick-ass!” he exclaims. As they head off collectively, Wanda is left behind, repeating “Kick-ass…” to herself. It is framed like a basic ’90s sitcom trope of a mom being exasperated at her children studying extra mature language, however the repetition highlights that that is no throwaway line of dialogue.
In truth, it is a reference to the truth that taking part in Quicksilver is not the one factor that connects Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters. Each starred within the 2010 film model of Kick-Ass: Taylor-Johnson as wannabe vigilante Dave Lizewski (aka “Kick-Ass”) and Peters as his pal Todd. Amusingly, there is a recast twist involving Peters in that franchise too. In Kick-Ass 2, Todd tries to change into a vigilante like his good friend, however he is now not performed by Peters; on the time, CinemaBlend reported that Peters’s involvement with American Horror Story might have induced a scheduling battle that required him to drop out of the sequel. This time, it is Peters who’s the “recast” model of an previous character!
In a bizarre approach, it is nearly good to have an Easter egg in WandaVision that does not require an excessive amount of overthinking or theorizing! Whereas a lot of the little hints and allusions to different superheroes have us making an attempt to determine what it might imply for the present and for the Marvel universe as an entire, this one is only a foolish, enjoyable casting joke!
