Matt Shakman says Mephisto was never going to be in ‘WANDAVISION’ — “That was a head-scratcher"

Matt Shakman says Mephisto was never going to be in ‘WANDAVISION’ — “That was a head-scratcher.”

Shakman said of Fantastic Four, “I’m not so much looking at the other [Fantastic Four] movies. I’m looking at the comics themselves. I’m a huge comic book fan. I’ve been a big fan of the Fantastic Four since I was a kid. So going back to Kirby and Lee and Byrne and following all the way up to what’s happening, certainly Hickman and Wade and Ryan North, what he’s been doing. I’m trying to figure out who these characters are to me and how to bring them to life in the best possible way, and that’s really where I’ve started and how we’ve approached it.

“There were some deep readings of the text that led to certain conclusions that were wrong,” Shakman explained. “Mephisto was never a part of our plan. So that was a head-scratcher. But hey, he’s a great character.”

Mephisto has yet to make his live-action debut in the MCU; however, an official copyright filing for Disney+’s Ironheart confirms Sacha Baron Cohen will be playing a character tentatively named “Mystery Man” in the upcoming series. Cohen has long been rumored to be playing Mephisto in the MCU, thus suggesting the Marvel antagonist will finally make his first appearance in the Dominique Thorne-led show.

Godwin’s Law states that as an online discussion grows longer (no matter the topic), the probability factor of a comparison to Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.

A relatively similar law applies to Marvel works as any discussion about a new Marvel film or television show’s mysteries or cameos inevitably leads to someone bringing up the name Mephisto.

Mephisto is an immortal demonic entity in the comics whose magical abilities include shapeshifting, illusion projection, temporal alteration and more. The character has been rumored to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years.
