WandaVision’s Nexus Med Commercial Could hold a link to Time Variance Authority
Warning: Spoilers Ahead
Episode 7 of WandaVision features yet another commercial, but this particular commercial may be a clever relation to the Disney+ upcoming Loki season. After spreading the Hex’s borders across Westview, the new chapter, named ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall,’ follows Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). With the town under her spell, it is more difficult for Wanda to remain in charge. Now that Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) has shown herself to be the sinister witch known as Agatha Harkness, this will become more complicated.
The Disney+ series features a commercial break with sinister undertones throughout each episode, to play into Wanda’s sitcom universe. The TV commercial introduces a revolutionary antidepressant named “Breaking the Fourth Wall,” in “Nexus.” The capsule in focus is advertised as “a unique antidepressant that works to anchor you back to your reality – or the reality of your choice.” The advertising also exposes possible side effects, like “possibly more depression.” based on her recent feelings of distress, to suit the format of traditional drug ads.
In conjunction with the presence of “Nexus Beings.” the name of the antidepressant may also be significant. Marvel Comics once identified Nexus Beings as rare individuals with powers to manipulate probability and, ultimately, the future. Nexus Entities are the keys to the Multiverse that Olsen suggested as being in a 2013 interview with Scarlet Witch. With that said, the Nexus drug advertising can also refer to the “god of Mischief” of the MCU and his forthcoming solo movie. Tom Hiddleston is reprising his role as Loki for a display covering the whereabouts of the character after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The Time Variance Authority (TVA), which has a long history with Nexus Beings, will also highly feature Loki.
