Who Is The Voice On The Radio In WandaVision Episode 2?

Contains spoilers for WandaVision

It's pretty much a given that the first few episodes of a TV series are going to leave audiences with more questions than answers. Without a solid pilot-episode mystery to keep them hooked, viewers might not have bothered to come back to learn when Delores would rebel against the jerks in Westworld, or how far Walter White was willing to take things on Breaking Bad, or why whatever happened on Legion happened on Legion.

WandaVision continues this noble tradition with bells on, daring its fledgling fans to try to unravel a Lynchian ball of narrative threads. Among the show's most intriguing mysteries is the ominous radio transmission that calls out to Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen). In episode 2, as Wanda is speaking to her neighborhood's busy-body organizer Dottie (Emma Caulfield), a voice on the radio asks her, "Who's doing this to you, Wanda?" 

It doesn't seem outside of the realm of possibility that figuring out the identity behind the voice would put some major pieces in place regarding the plot of the show going forward. Obviously, there's plenty of speculation, and viewers will likely have to wait for a while before streaming video kills this radio star's hard-earned anonymity. For now, though, there's a big hint as to who's behind the pleading broadcasts. Needless to say, there's a big potential spoiler coming right up.

Could the voice on the radio be Agent Woo?

Cruise through WandaVision's cast list on IMDb, and you'll notice a few familiar faces. Kat Dennings is set to return as Darcy from the first two Thor films, but we can rule her out for the time being, since the voice on the radio doesn't sound like hers. No, the real head-turner in the case of the phantom radio personality is actor Randall Park.

With six seasons on Fresh Off the Boat and a headline-inspiring turn as a slowly exploding Kim Jong-un in 2014's The Interview under his belt, Park is best known to Marvel fans as FBI Agent Jimmy Woo — the ever-so-slightly condescending former S.H.I.E.L.D. operative who, despite his best efforts, didn't do a great job keeping Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) on house arrest during the events of Ant Man and the Wasp. Listen closely to the radio transmissions in episode 2 of WandaVision, and you'll notice that the voice being broadcast sounds awfully similar to Woo's.

This early in the game, this is all just speculation, of course, but Park is credited with appearing in seven out of nine episodes of WandaVision, so we can assume that he has a significant role to play in the series. And while it's noted that Park doesn't appear in WandaVision until episode 3, that doesn't mean his voice hasn't been included prior to that. It may seem like an odd choice to add to the more sinister side of WandaVision a character who has thus far in the MCU been played mostly for laughs, but it's definitely possible that Jimmy Woo is the one trying to reach Wanda. After all, WandaVision showrunner Jac Schaeffer has said that Jimmy will team up with Darcy because they're trying to solve a mystery; "They have so many questions and no answers," she said in the series' production brief. Could that mystery be what's happening to Wanda? Seems like it.

In any case, Park definitely has the acting chops to pull off whatever the show throws at him. Hopefully, we'll have concrete answers by the time WandaVision concludes on March 5.
