Six commercials play out across the nine total episodes of Disney+’s “WandaVision,” and they all reference important events in Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) past, mainly focusing on her grief. Episode 6 features a commercial for Nexus antidepressants — a play on both Wanda’s emotional state and her role as a Nexus Being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In “Loki,” Miss Minutes explains how variants create Nexus events when they veer off the timeline the Time Keepers have created. When left unchecked, these events can lead to “madness,” which could then cause a war across the multiverse.
This second mention of “Nexus” in two of Marvel Studios’ three already released Disney+ series gives us a good indication of what’s to come in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” Wanda’s newfound powers and ability to warp realities will work hand-in-hand with Nexus events we’ll see created in “Loki.” Both series are the perfect setup for the upcoming film, which is set to explore the multiverse in more detail. Expect to get a deeper understanding of Nexus events as “Loki” continues, and an even stronger knowledge in the “Doctor Strange” sequel, which lands in theaters on March 25, 2022.
