'WandaVision' Episode 9 Post-Credits Scenes Explained

WandaVision viewers may not have got the huge MCU Phase 4 set up they wanted from the series finale on Disney+, but they did get two post-credits scenes that did hint at what is next for both Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), setting up their appearance in two upcoming Marvel movies and/or TV shows.

WandaVision Episode 9 post-credit scenes explained

Post-Credit Scene 1: Monica

Though Monica did not have that much to do in the WandaVision series finale except rip a necklace off of Evan Peters, she did get a credits scene of her own which seems to confirm her taking part in another Disney+ Marvel show and movie.

While taking part in the clean up of Westview after the departure of Wanda, Monica is brought to the local movie theater by a SWORD agent. Once they are alone, he reveals himself to be a Skrull, and tells her a friend of her mother's is waiting to meet her. Asked where, the Skrull simply points upwards, telling us that Monica is heading into outer space.

Though not confirmed, the person she is set to meet is almost certainly Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), who starred alongside Monica's mother Maria (Lashana Lynch) in Captain Marvel. In the post-credits scene to Spider-Man: Far From Home, it was revealed that Fury was working aboard a space station – and in that film, he also used Skrull agents to communicate with Peter Parker (Tom Holland).

This means that Monica be joining Fury in one or two upcoming Marvel projects. The references to Fury and the Skrulls may suggest she will be part of Secret Invasion, an upcoming Disney+ series announced alongside numerous other Marvel shows last year that is set to see Fury investigating an infiltration of the shape-shifting Skrulls on the Earth alongside Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). Alternately, they could be teasing a space-set Captain Marvel 2, which has been confirmed to feature Monica, who appeared in the first one as a child (Akira Akbar).

Post-Credit Scene 2: Wanda

Those who watched to the end of the credits (or skipped past them) got a glimpse at what the future of the MCU holds for the Scarlet Witch.

In the scene, we see two versions of her living in a remote cabin. Regular Wanda is seen in one room, while in the other she seems to be astrally projecting as the Scarlet Witch, who is learning about the prophecies made about her in the Darkhold, a book of the dead she got after defeating Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) in the finale. As she flicks through this book, we hear the voices of her children shouting for help. As they had been obliterated when the 'hex' over Westview was lifted, this seems to suggest that somewhere, they are still alive, whether it is in Wanda's mind or in another universe – and as Olsen will next appear in the film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is likely the latter.

Wanda astrally projecting is itself a reference to Doctor Strange, which similarly saw Benedict Cumberbatch's character doing this to learn magic while he slept.

Of course, fan theories are abounding about what this could mean. After fan theories that Mephisto would be the main villain of WandaVision turned out to be false, these theorists have simply pivoted to saying that Mephisto is being set up as the villain of Doctor Strange 2 – after all, the villain is known for collecting souls, so it could be that he has captured those of Billy and Tommy.
