WANDAVISION Star Explains [SPOILER]'s Superhero Origin Story In The Latest Episode Of The Series

WANDAVISION Star Explains <font color=red>[SPOILER]</font>'s Superhero Origin Story In The Latest Episode Of The Series

WandaVision has already done a fair bit to lay the groundwork for Phase 4, and one star of the Disney+ series has now opened up on their superhero origin story in the latest installment of the hit show!

WandaVision has delivered its fair share of surprises, with Monica Rambeau's superhero origin in last Friday's episode among them. Her third trip through the Hex has granted the S.W.O.R.D. agent powers of her own, and based on what we've seen thus far, Monica will soon suit up as Spectrum. 

Reflecting on her early meetings with Marvel Studios in an interview with Marvel.com, actress Teyonah Parris says she was shown concept art depicting her transformation.

"I saw magical rays, and glimmers, and stuff on the storyboards, and it was my face! And I'm like, ‘How did they do this already?’"

"When I sat down and talked to the [WandaVision team], they explained it to me that through Monica's compassion, through her empathy, and her willingness to put her own body on the line, she sacrifices her own self for what she believes is the greater good [to go back to Westview]. And that happens by passing through this energy field too many times, essentially."

Parris went on to elaborate on how director Matt Shakman walked her through the scene, explaining that the death of Maria Rambeau is what pushes Monica through the Hex in that moment.

It doesn't sound like it was an easy sequence to film, however. 

"When we filmed it, that was on a stage [against] a green screen," she says. "Basically, I had to wear each of my outfits, get tethered to a rope, and pull to have that motion. And so, there was that technical aspect of it. That was a little difficult, especially the ones in the space suit and then the stockings and heels. I just switched to sneakers!"

Monica's evolution into Spectrum is likely to continue when the character returns in Captain Marvel 2.
