The Director Of WandaVision Revealed There's A Deleted Scene From The Finale Where Agatha's Rabbit Turned Into A Giant Demon

The Direct- In an appearance on Kevin Smith's podcast, WandaVision director Matt Shakman has revealed details of a cut action scene from the finale that would've revealed the true form of Agatha Harkness' rabbit Señor Scratchy. The director revealed the scene — which was cut due to the “many different chess pieces” of the finale — would've seen Darcy, Monica, the boys, and Ralph consider stealing the Darkhold from Agatha's basement:

"We did have something more planned for Señor Scratchy that we ultimately couldn't do because the finale had so many different chess pieces. But we did have a whole sequence where Darcy, Monica, and Ralph meet up with the kids in Agatha's house, and they think they should steal the Darkhold from the basement because the kids had seen it when they were down there being held hostage by Agatha."

The scene would've gone on to see the seemingly innocent rabbit go through an “American werewolf in London transformation” in which he would turn into a demon leading to a “Goonies set-piece” styled chase: "And they go down there to get the book and the rabbit hops up in front of the book. And they're like 'Oh it's Señor Scratchy he's the best' and they reach over to pet him. And then this whole American werewolf in London transformation happens and the rabbit turns into this big demon. And then this whole Goonies set-piece ensues where they try to escape from the rabbit."

Shakman confirmed the scene was shot, however, the CGI was never finished for it. While he admits that "it was a great sequence," it marked a "huge detour" in the plot, leading to its eventual cutting: "We shot it, but we didn't finish all the VFX stuff for it. It was a great sequence, it was super fun, everyone was great in it. But we ended up moving it aside because it was a huge detour in the middle of everything else we had going on."

Yeah yeah yeahhhhh, I may have accused every innocent person and animal living in Westview of being the devil over the last 2 months. But I knew that rabbit was sus as a motherfucker long before he ate a bird and this quote proves that not only was he worthy of a spot atop the Sus List but that looking for clues about who was Mephisto may not have been a big ol' witch hunt after all.

Sorry, phrasing.

As we talked about a bunch on today's My Mom's Basement (shamelessly placed at the top of this blog), WandaVision was supposed to have its finale right before Dr. Strange 2 came out before a little thing known as the novel coronavirus fucked everything up like a microscopic Agatha Harkness. I imagine if a giant box office blockbuster was about to be released in movie theaters with no occupancy limits, Marvel would have had no problem revealing a big bad for said movie as well as this entire phase. 

However, since we have to wait another year before The Multiverse Of Madness comes out, there was no reason for Marvel to show us Mephisto, Chthon, Nightmare, or whatever weird ass demonic motherfucker Dr. Stephen Strange will be battling (or even just Agatha's wizard son Nicholas Scratch) and given us even bluer balls than we had over the lack of X-Men, Fantastic Four, or whatever other theories you may have had from all the seeds that didn't result the way things should have.

That Goonies scene and the demon reveal sounds pretty goddamn awesome and would have definitely led to a 10th episode, which would have helped pace everything from the finale better. But in the end, coronavirus fucked everything up, which is pretty much par for everything over the last year. Whatever. I can't wait to see Wanda go full Heisenberg in this phase and hopefully give us a villain worthy of following up The T Man.
