WandaVision Episode 6 just landed on Disney Plus, and it featured a reference to a movie that Evan Peters and Aaron Taylor-Johnson starred in together. WARNING: Before reading this article, I must warn you that there are SPOILERS for WandaVison Episode 6 in this video.
Right, you’ve been warned now, so if you’re reading on and you haven’t watched the episode yet, then I’m assuming you don’t care all that much about spoilers. So, what was the movie WandaVision Episode 6 referenced that starred both Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Even Peters? That movie was Kick-Ass.
Kick-Ass is easily one of the best comic book movies ever made. The first film is brilliant, yet it did have a terrible sequel. That film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, aka Dave Lizewski, and he’s just an ordinary boy who decides to become a superhero, but without any powers. He just wants to stop criminals and makes himself a costume and arms himself with two batons, and then proceeds to get beaten up by criminals a lot.
WandaVision Episode 6 referenced Kick-Ass
Evan Peters has a small part in the movie as Todd Haynes, and the fact that the movie was referenced in this episode of WandaVision is a nice little nod to Aaron Taylor-Johnson. So, when was the movie referenced? I’ll tell you.
In WandaVision Episode 6 Wanda is pretty confused by Pietro’s different appearance. Pietro tells Wanda that he’ll help his twin nephews obtain as much candy as they can while trick-or-treating, Tommy, Wanda’s son, then exclaims, ‘Yeah. Kick-ass!’, before the three of them speed off. ‘Kick-ass?’ Wanda repeats to herself, looking pretty confused by the whole scene that unfolded in front of her.
