Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness offered a fleeting glimpse at Billy Maximoff’s potential superhero future and sculptor Jonny Moore has offered a better look at the film’s Wiccan statue.
Tommy and Billy Maximoff, played by Jett Klyne and Julian Hilliard, were introduced to the MCU in WandaVision on Disney Plus, before reappearing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While the characters seen in WandaVision were magical creations, brought into being by Wanda’s witchcraft, the Tommy and Billy who appeared in Multiverse of Madness were alternate versions of Wanda’s children from other universes.
In the comics, Tommy Maximoff becomes the super-fast hero Speed, while Billy goes on to become the magically powered Wiccan. The twins’ superpowered futures have been hinted at in the MCU, with a major Wiccan tease coming in the form of an impressive statue in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Wiccan On Wundagore
During a sequence in which Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch journeys to Mount Wundagore, a legendary mountain where the sinister spells of the Darkhold were first transcribed, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduces Wundagore Castle – a seat of power built long ago for the prophesied Scarlet Witch. The walls are adorned with carvings of the Scarlet Witch and also glimpsed is a sculpture of Billy Maximoff in the guise of Wiccan.
Film sculptor Jonny Moore took to Instagram to offer fans a better look at some of the sculptures he created for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, including the sculpture of Wiccan. The statue bears a clear resemblance to Billy Maximoff actor Julian Hilliard, but depicts him in Wiccan’s comic book threads. Check out Moore’s images below:
In addition to the Wiccan sculptures seen above, Jonny Moore worked on the vast Scarlet Witch sculpture also seen in Wundagore Castle and the statue of Earth-838’s Doctor Strange, which appeared outside that Earth’s Sanctum Sanctorum. It is not yet clear when, or if, Tommy and Billy Maximoff will return to the MCU in their superhero guises, but Multiverse of Madness certainly seems to lay the foundations for at least Wiccan’s MCU debut.
