It has already been established that WandaVision will set the stage for future MCU films like Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. Both have been confirmed to take the much anticipated leap into the multiverse. And while Wanda’s reality warping powers mean she’ll likely be the one to tear a huge hole in the fabric of reality and break the barrier between multiple universes, it seems that the Disney + series has already teased the inevitable – by she subtly hides a superhero from an alternate reality in sight – Dottie.
Up until now there have been many theories as to how Dottie, the standard Westview queen bee, is actually the devil, i.e. Mephisto in disguise, as she is the “key to everything” in town. actually stated that “the devil is in the details” and turns out to be dominant, also in a disturbing way.
Some have even claimed she was Clea, the Dark Dimension sorceress in disguise who appears in the comics as the student and lover of Doctor Strange, and posited that her appearance will ultimately be linked to the one to come Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. Well, we have a different theory and it also leads straight into the multiverse chaos that Marvel has planned for us.
Dottie is the superhero Arcanna from Earth-712
Since the first episode of WandaVisionWe have met many constant characters in the ever-changing city of Westview. But one character stood out, if not because of its special qualities. What sent our brain teeth on a big sprint is his name – Phil Jones, played by David Lengel, the neighbor of Wanda and Vision.
Anyone who paid no heed to shy Jones and copied him as a comic minor should know that there is actually a Phil Jones in the Marvel Comics. Given that there is little detail that the Marvel bosses add just because of that, we’ll proceed with the notion that the naming of this character Phil Jones hides a unique motif. While Phil is barely in the limelight in the comics either, we’ll focus on who he’s married to – the powerful sorceress / crime fighter / superhero Arcanna.
While Phil Jones barely appeared in WandaVision Episodes, the third episode has confirmed he’s married to Dottie in the show’s fake sitcom land. This could suggest that she is indeed Arcanna, the character who first appeared in Defenders # 112 in October 1982 and was created by JM De Matteis and Don Perlin. Unlike the Marvel Universe featured in the comics in Earth-616, Arcanna was born in an alternate universe, Earth-712. She is a natural sorceress who had the power to manipulate all natural elements – water, wind, earth, air and fire. So it can fly by displacing the wind, altering the light to create illusions, and even shooting magical bolts of energy.
Initially, Arcanna used her mystical powers as a medium. But soon she became one of the members of the superhero group Squadron Supreme, which parallels the DC Justice League, with Arcanna’s character being a mock version of Zatanna. The group has become entangled and collaborated with the Avengers many times, and was even trapped on Earth-616 once.
We have been eagerly waiting for Wanda’s make-shift reality to collapse when the illusion of vision and her newborn twins eventually disappear, and for her to create this rift in the fabric of reality, the ripples of which will be felt throughout the MCU. But what if it has already happened? It’s unlikely that Marvel Studios, who always do their homework, would call a character Phil Jones for nothing. Perhaps Wanda, in her grief over the loss of vision, has already pierced the thin veil of reality with holes, while characters like Arcanna from another universe were caught in chaos and ended up in their pseudo-reality?
Whatever the case, Dottie actually looks like a fishy figure who probably has an ulterior motive of its own. While series star Elizabeth Olsen had already shared this from the fourth episode, WandaVision If we keep up with important revelations, all we can do is wait and see. You can see the latest installment in the series on the official Disney + app.
