Did Spider-Man: Far From Home's Post-Credits Scene Tease WandaVision?

Virtually every aspect of WandaVision is drenched in deeper meanings and hidden references to all things Marvel, from the fashionable accessories Monica (Teyonah Parris) and Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) wear, down to the numbers on the houses in the idyllic suburb of Westview. The secret messages run so deep, in fact, they even show themselves in the show's basic shapes and patterns.

Even in the very first episode, WandaVision's end credit sequence hints that someone (eventually revealed to be S.W.O.R.D.) is watching Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision's (Paul Bettany) every move on an old tube television. And on that television, you may have noticed a hexagonal shape framing Wanda's classic sitcom world. There's a very specific reason for that shape, and that's not the only place it shows up on the series.

When astrophysicist Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) joins the S.W.O.R.D. team's investigation of Westview, she notices that the barrier surrounding the pocket dimension within has a very specific shape: the hexagon. As a result, she begins referring to the world under Wanda's control as "the Hex" — a purposeful choice considering Wanda's chaos magic was originally called "hex power" when she first debuted in the pages of X-Men #4 in 1964.

But this isn't the first time we've seen a prominent hexagon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It turns out, the Hex connects Wanda to Spider-Man: Far From Home and to Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson).

How the Hex connects WandaVision to the cosmic MCU

During the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) works alongside who he thinks is Nick Fury, without realizing that this "Fury" is actually Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), the shapeshifting Skrull audiences first meet in the '90s throwback film Captain Marvel. Talos is taking care of things while the real Fury is away, preventing people from knowing that Fury isn't just away from S.H.I.E.L.D. — he's away from Earth entirely.

In Far From Home's post-credit sequence, not only do we see Fury in space, but we also see a familiar configuration on one of the screens he's studying — a hexagon. And Fury isn't in space for fun, he's there working with none other than S.W.O.R.D. This connection not only suggests that Fury is aware of what's happening with Wanda, but that he may be set to play a visible role on WandaVision later on in the series.

Even prior to this moment, the MCU established the hexagon shape as significant. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Universal Neural Teleportation Network jump points also take a hexagonal form.

In the MCU, Wanda's powers were unlocked by exposure to the Mind Stone, which came into the possession of HYDRA after Loki (Tom Hiddleston) wielded it during the events of The Avengers. Loki, like his brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Guardians of the Galaxy, is from space — that means Wanda's powers are likely cosmic. All of which is to say, don't be surprised if we see extraterrestrial life on WandaVision — assuming we haven't already!
