New WandaVision Funko Pops casts a shadow on Pietro Maximoff’s true identity
Funko has revealed a bunch of new Funko pops based on the characters from WandaVision including Billy and Tommy Maximoff and Pietro but there’s more the latter than meets the eye.
These two releases are part of the Emerald City Comic Con 2021. It features the twins, Billy and Tommy Maximoff in their Halloween costumes as seen in Wandavision episode 6. Billy is wearing his Wiccan costume while Tommy is wearing a similar costume to his uncle Pietro Maximoff in the show-within-a-show.

And then there’s this guy…
This Funko Exclusive figure is marked with quotation marks too which is very suspect. Rather than marking it as just Pietro Maximoff, its “Pietro Maximoff”. Why did they do that? Still a pretty cool figure with the likeness of actor Evan Peters who joined the series during the tail end of Wandavision Episode 5.
Is this a sign that Pietro isn’t what he seems and is more of an impostor? What will that mean with the future of the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU? Wandavision is down to its last three episodes with episode 7 airing this week, so we SHOULD be getting answers soon.
