WandaVision: Paul Bettany Thinks Marvel Should Hire Fan Theory Creators

Bettany goes on in the interview to explain how he went from a smaller part as the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S to having a key role in the MCU’s WandaVision today. He explains the J.A.R.V.I.S. role was actually a favor to Iron Man director Jon Favreau and then jokes he has just been slowly “wheedling” his way into Marvel. Bettany also mentions he was surprised when he read on social media he has been involved with Marvel spanning two different decades.

Bettany may be on to something with his suggestion fans should be working for Marvel. Fan theories can be endlessly entertaining to dive into before the plot has fully played out. The in-depth theories that come out each week show fans are intensely immersed in the WandaVision world and would perhaps be well-suited for Marvel employment. It is true fan theories are often accurate, but even when they are later debunked, they can have people wishing the story had gone the way they predicted. Bettany previously expressed the success of Marvel movies comes from the makers themselves being genuine fans of the characters. For this reason, his opinion the fans behind theories should be working for Marvel is not surprising to hear and shows an appreciation for those dissecting WandaVision at a high level.
