Mephisto Will Reportedly Make his MCU Debut in ‘Ironheart’
It has been one of the longest-running fan rumors for Marvel, and with so many wanting the character to make their presence known, they could finally get their wish, as Mephisto is reportedly set to make his MCU debut in Ironheart.
There has seemingly always been a very odd obsession between fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the enigmatic and villainous character of Mephisto.
All the way back in WandaVision, fans had been clamoring for the devil of the Marvel Universe to be the entity behind all of the horrid circumstances surrounding Wanda’s illusions; something that ultimately turned out to be Agatha all along (you’re welcome).
Then, fans had surmised that the evil being was behind what was happening to Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, with many believing that he was hiding in plain sight throughout hte promotional material; until it was revealed to simply be the multiverse.
That was, mostly, where it ended as fans stopped assuming that the character was somehow hidden in every evil reveal and moment that took place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it seems as though fans may finally get their wish after all.
Following some rumors that took place over the weekend, it turns out that Mephisto is reportedly set to make his MCU debut in the upcoming Ironheart series; a project that has already confirmed The Hood, and is set to pit magic and technology against one another.
