After a long wait, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally returned, and it does so in an impressive manner due to the successful debut of WandaVision . The highly-talked-about MCU series has been a trending topic on social media, and this was mainly due to the strange narrative of the show .

As a result, fans have laid out their own theories about the matter, ranging from the show's villain all the way to the identity of the beekeeper that debuted in Episode 2. The latter's popularity seems to have sky-rocketed in the past few days, considering that this person might hold the key to solve what's really happening in Westview.

Now, new bits of footage could shed some light on the actual role of the beekeeper in the larger scheme of WandaVision .


In the latest WandaVision featurette , two new scenes of the mysterious beekeeper entering Wanda's sitcom-based reality was shown.

The first piece of footage shows the beekeeper inside some kind of rabbit hole, seemingly trying to enter the outskirts of the real-world Westview.

The second-bit shows another angle of the scene, but this time, it provides a clear look at the face of the beekeeper. The actor in the scene has been confirmed to be former Agents of SHIELD actor Zac Henry.

As it is, it makes narrative sense for the Beekeeper to come from some sort of opening beneath the surface since it was established that the strange figure appeared from a manhole outside Wanda and Vision's residence. However, due to the obscure nature of Wanda's alternate reality, it's possible that the manhole was different in the real-world Westview, and it looks like that this is one of the passable entry points that SWORD discovered.

In addition, there's a strong chance that the real-world outfit of the beekeeper is actually a protective hazmat suit from S.W.O.R.D. It's entirely plausible that this is part of the protocols of the sentient organization due to the otherworldly situation.

It's relatively unknown if S.W.O.R.D. sent out multiple agents to investigate the situation, but the fact that only one managed to get out should be enough evidence that it's dangerous for non-residents of Westview to get inside Wanda's created reality.

On the flip side, there's also a chance that this beekeeper is not a S.W.O.R.D. agent, and he is only using a disguise to get to Wanda. In a way, this could potentially mean that fans already saw the secret villain of the show without even noticing it.

All in all, this is a prime example of the vast amount of possibilities that have been showcased so far in WandaVision , and it will be exciting to find out how all the pieces unravel in the coming weeks.
