Elsewhere, Paul Bettany, who plays Vision in the show, teased a major cameo still to come in the last two episodes.
“Of all of the characters that we were trying to keep secret, a lot of them got out through leaks, there is one character that has not been revealed,” he said.
“It’s an actor that I’ve longed to work with all of my life. We have some amazing scenes together and the chemistry between us is, I think, extraordinary. It’s just fireworks on set. So, I’m really excited for people to see that stuff.”
The last episodes of season one of WandaVision are set to air on February 26 and March 5, exclusively on Disney+.
