As the wait for the highly-anticipated dive into the multiverse draws closer, a new TV spot for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has confirmed the return of two WandaVision characters, Billy and Tommy Maximoff!
The twins, played by Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne, respectively, are back! After the post-credits scene of WandaVision, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but comic fans are surely breathing a sigh of relief as the MCU continues to tease the formation of another beloved team, the Young Avengers.
In the spot, the boys are only seen as haunting Wanda’s ongoing nightmares. Whether these nightmares are simply residual torment from her “happy ending” in WandaVision or something more sinister from her time with the Darkhold remains to be seen. However, we do know that Wanda’s search for her children will likely be a key player within the storyline as she searches through time, space, and alternate realities for them, possibly with the help of the multiverse-hopping America Chavez.
In addition to the introduction of America Chavez, played by Xochitl Gomez, three members of the Young Avengers team will be showing up in the sequel. Other Young Avengers who have made their debut include Eli Bradley/Patriot in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Kate Bishop/Hawkeye in Hawkeye, Kid Loki in Loki, and Cassie Lang/Stature, who we’ve seen throughout the MCU’s Ant-Man appearances but will be debuting with a new actress, Kathryn Newton, in the upcoming third installment of the Ant-Man trilogy, Ant-Man: Quantumania.
Two questions remain about the return of Wiccan and Speed, one, will this be their official debut into the MCU, here to stay, as their superhero personas? And if so, will they age up to match the rest of the already-introduced team? Billy and Tommy are shown at the young age we had to say goodbye to in the closing scenes of WandaVision, but with their already established age-bending power, we can assume they’ll bring themselves to their late teens/early 20s at some point. However, seeing how the MCU establishes the twins and their powers outside of Wanda’s Westview hex will be interesting, to say the least. Especially since their creation is so vastly different than the comic source material (I won’t say the name …)
With Billy and Tommy confirmed, we can also only hope that we can say hello again to Paul Bettany’s Vision as well. (And where is Teddy Altman?)
