WANDAVISION Director Matt Shakman Teases Identity Of Jimmy Woo's Missing Person Being Revealed Down The Line

FBI agent Jimmy Woo arrived in Westview looking for a missing witness in a case he was working on, and while WandaVision never revealed their identity, it sounds like answers could be coming down the line.

We first met FBI agent Jimmy Woo in Ant-Man and The Wasp after he was tasked with keeping an eye on Scott Lang following the events of Captain America: Civil War. Thanks to Randall Park's memorable performance, the character quickly became a fan-favourite, so his return in WandaVision was welcomed.

Funnily enough, it was Jimmy who discovered the Hex when he arrived on the outskirts of Westview looking for a missing person who had been placed in the witness protection program.  We never did discover who that was, though the fact that Jimmy didn't recognise Ralph Bohner discounts him.

Ultimately, it feels a lot like this was little more than an excuse to bring Jimmy into the story to notify S.W.O.R.D. of what was going on (which brought Monica Rambeau to town, and then Dr. Darcy Lewis, Director Hayward, and, eventually, the white version of the rebuilt Vision).

During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, WandaVision director Matt Shakman was asked about this mysterious witness, and it sounds like answers could be coming... at some point. 

"In terms of the missing person, yeah there's an answer for that and, you know, hang in there," the filmmaker told the site, hinting that a future movie or TV show will explain this mystery. 

We don't know when and where this will happen, of course, so we're just left to speculate for now!

10. Those Mephisto Teases Were Pure Coincidence

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r43

Early episodes of WandaVision appeared to hint at Mephisto being somehow tied to what Wanda was going through, with plenty of references to the devil scattered here and there. 

Wanda, and her twins, have quite a storied history with the Marvel Universe's devil, but it wasn't a conscious move on Schaeffer's part.

"There was never any conscious intention on my part to create any Mephisto red herrings because I didn't know who Mephisto was until I started doing press," she admits in an interview with Mashable. "Why did we talk about the devil so much? That's a real coincidence."

"He wasn't ever part of our storytelling conversations. We were very clear that the big bad is grief. And then the external bad is Agatha. So as a viewer and as a lover of the show and the characters, I didn't want anything more than that." So, it seems there are no plans for Mephisto in the MCU moving forward from here.
 

9. Why Tommy And Billy Never Grew Up

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r432

The prevailing theory, mostly thanks to some big rumors, was that WandaVision would end with Tommy and Billy (Speed and Wicca) aged up into teenagers and ready to join the Young Avengers.

It didn't happen, and they instead faded away into nothingness at 10-years-old when the Hex came down.

The two actors, Jett Klyne and Julian Hilliard, could naturally age into the roles now, but Shakman explains to ET why they remained so young in the series. "We wanted to keep them at that age. Wanda has obviously missed out on the first 10 years of their life [which] went by really fast, so we didn't want to deprive her of even more time with them."

"And once we got to know them, we had so little screen time with 10-year-old Billy and Tommy that we wanted to take advantage of what we did have to get to know them really well as people. There's so much innocence there," the director continues. "To have them [the twins] age up one more time, I think, would have been unfair to those actors and those characters."
 

8. Elizabeth Olsen Knew Nothing Of The Multiverse Shooting WandaVision

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r4324

Avengers: Endgame introduced the concept of the Marvel Multiverse, so it's no wonder fans started theorizing that Wanda and Vision might have found themselves in an alternate reality in this series. 

When Pietro showed up, it seemed like a given that Marvel Studios had started pulling characters and actors from Fox's X-Men Universe, but that wasn't the case, and Olsen didn't even learn of the Multiverse's significance until she started working on the Doctor Strange sequel.

"I didn’t know about the multiverse when we were filming this," she admitted to Variety"So I wouldn’t assume that that’s what was happening. I thought it was just a clever way to have a Pietro. I didn’t understand the larger plan of the multiverse until I started working on 'Multiverse,' or whatever our movie’s called, the 'Doctor Strange' sequel."

At least we know the Multiverse will factor into that
 

7. Señor Scratchy's Demonic Reveal

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r43243

Marvel fans were convinced that there was more to rabbit Señor Scratchy than met the eye, and while the series itself didn't address that, a deleted scene does. 

"We did have a whole sequence where Darcy, Monica, [and] Ralph all meet up with the kids, and they're in Agatha's house, and they think maybe they should steal the Darkhold," Shakman told Kevin Smith. "They go down there to get the book, and they're reaching for the book, and the rabbit hops up in front of the book."

"They reach over to pat him, and he hisses, and this whole American Werewolf in London transformation happens, and there's this big demon which is [Agatha's] familiar," he continued. "Goonies set pieces ensue as they try to escape from the rabbit." 

We can only hope this is eventually released, because it ending up on the cutting room floor robbed us of more Monica, Ralph, and a big pay off to all those teases. 
 

6. Is Vision...Vision? 

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r432435

WandaVision ends with Westview's Vision bidding a final farewell to Wanda, and the real deal - now white - blasting off into the sky after having his memories restored and declaring, "I am Vision."

Livanos chose her words carefully when TV Line asked what that means for the android, but noted: "I’m sure there will be plentiful opportunities in the future to answer that completely. We found it very compelling that he does get the data back."

"Whether or not that makes him a full and complete Vision is left unanswered, but it’s probably safe to say that he still has some growing to do," the co-executive producer teased. "We’ll see what the future holds." She also pointed out that just because he has his memories, that "doesn’t quite make him the same guy" he once was. 

Livanos concluded by pointing out that might explain why he didn't rush to help Wanda. 
 

5. More Of Agatha Harkness' Backstory Was Cut

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r4324355

The series did a solid job of explaining what role Agatha Harkness played in Westview as "Agnes," though an interview with Jeff Goldsmith saw Schaeffer better explain her reasoning for coming to the town. 

"This is not the definition of her, this is just an artful term that I use, she is kind of like a succubus," the showrunner said. "She travels looking for powerful beings to take from. We had done a lot of ideating of where she's been and what she's been up to and what her journey has been and all that, and that didn't make it into the show because that was the right move."

"But it was helpful for us just to sort of have a bit of a biography for her. But yeah, she came [to Westview], she sniffed it out and had to show up and figure out what was going on."

Another scene or two detailing more of Agatha's past would have been welcomed, but as things stand, she remains a mysterious part of the MCU following WandaVision.
 

4. Doctor Strange's Absence From The Finale Explained

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r43243553

The rumor mill promised a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch's Sorcerer Supreme in the WandaVision finale, but it never came to pass (he was, however, mentioned by Agatha Harkness). 

Some have argued that perhaps COVID was to blame for Doctor Strange's absence, but it doesn't sound like it was ever the plan for him to appear. "I mean, that would've been fun I guess," Cumberbatch admitted to Jake's Take"It would've let into [Elizabeth Olsen's] involvement with [Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness] but, ah hell, you know. That's all to come."

Schaeffer reiterated these comments,telling Deadline: "I heart Doctor Strange just like anybody. Yeah, it’s one of those things, that’s how the chips fell, that’s how the cookie crumbled, is what I will say, but I look forward to seeing him on screen with Wanda in Doctor Strange 2."

It sounds like some effort may have been made to make this happen, but WandaVision certainly didn't suffer without Strange, and we may never know what the deal was here.
 

3. Why Dr. Darcy Lewis Just Vanished

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r432435535

Kate Dennings' Dr. Darcy Lewis proved to be a vital part of WandaVision, but had only a blink and you'd miss it quip in the finale when she stopped Director Hayward in his tracks. 

We know she was once meant to be part of that sequence in Agatha's basement, but why did she leave Westview so quickly?

"I don’t think [Dennings’ absence] had to do with anything COVID-related," Livanos confirms in an interview with TV Line. "We love Darcy as this elusive, wacky character, and I find it particularly delightful that Darcy could pop up anywhere in the universe."

Dennings has already teased wrapping on another Marvel Studios project, so we'll likely see her again before too long.
 

2. Laying The Groundwork For Captain Marvel 2

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r4324355353

WandaVision has two post-credits scenes, and in an ET interview, Livanos talked more about what those mean for the MCU's future (while being careful not too give too many secrets away). 

"It's not Monica's first interaction with a Skrull. Just [Teyonah Parrris's]. It was so cool to see Teyonah interact with her Skrull counterpart, just knowing the crazy Captain Marvel universe that's in store," the co-executive producer teased. "There's just so much more zany that it's going to get, it's fun to think about."

As for the second scene, it sounds like it was about firmly established the Scarlet Witch being part of the MCU's mystic side.

"Lizzie is such a powerful presence that it was just so cool to see her step into that whole magic realm," Livanos adds. "To think about the potential and all that lies ahead for her, it's pretty staggering."
 

1. What About The Beekeeper?

p166-2d-pt1-v4034-0128-210129-21mj-g-r709-169137-r43243553535

At the end of WandaVision's second episode, Wanda saw a beekeeper emerge from the sewers, and quickly realise it was a S.W.O.R.D. agent looking to interfere with the perfect reality she had created. 

After uttering an ominous "no," Wanda rewound time, and we never did learn what became of him. 

"It was so fantastic to see the world’s response to the beekeeper," Livanos admits with a laugh while catching up with TV Line. "You know, at the end of the show, Wanda takes down her Hex in order to save the people of Westview from the trauma she was projecting. So hopefully he’s OK. We all hope for the best for him."

So, there you have it, folks - he's safe (somewhere).
