The Marvel Cinematic Universe is prone to all sorts of weird and wonderful fan theories, some of them more convincing than others.

"WandaVision" spawned more fan theories than most MCU projects, with one of the most passionate and popular theories revolving around the inclusion of Mephisto, Marvel Comics' answer to the devil.

Unfortunately for those aboard the Mephisto train, that theory never left the station as "WandaVision" wrapped with only a billboard hint to the presence of the Marvel demon. He was never introduced or officially referenced in anyway.

But now, the Mephisto theory is back after fans think they spotted him in the opening episode of "Loki."

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner posing for a photo: Vampires love baseball — and making fun of the franchise that gave the world sparkly bloodsuckers and cinema’s most traumatic birth scene this side of Rosemary’s Baby. Since the first Twilight movie premiered in 2008, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and the rest of the cast have given a lot of interviews in which they gleefully dunk on the saga. “It was like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published,” the Lighthouse actor famously told E! News of Stephenie Meyer’s novel in 2008. “I was just convinced, like, ‘This woman is mad. She’s completely mad and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.’ And sometimes you would feel uncomfortable reading this thing.” As Twihards know, The Twilight Saga tells the story of Bella Swan (Stewart), a young woman who falls in love with Edward Cullen (Pattinson) after moving to the small town of Forks, Washington. She immediately becomes enthralled by his menacing stare and tousled brown hair, but Edward advises her to keep her distance. What he really wants, after all, is to suck her blood. Bella doesn’t listen, naturally, and over the course of five movies ends up marrying him, having his half-vampire baby, clashing with a local pack of werewolves and appealing to the Volturi (the vampire government) to leave her family alone.     Fans ate it up like a Cullen sibling hunting after a long fast, but critics were not always enthusiastic. In a 2011 New York Times review of Breaking Dawn — Part 1 titled, “Edward, You May Now Bite the Bride,” Manohla Dargis had this to say about Taylor Lautner’s performance: “Mr. Lautner, whose pumped physique and flat affect bring to mind one of those friendly pizza delivery boys in a pornographic movie, remains a dish best served with as few words and clothes as possible.” In the years since the final movie’s debut in 2012, the cast has made many similarly scathing comments about the franchise. “As soon as [Bella] becomes a vampire, they kind of ignore their duties instantly,” Stewart joked during a 2012 appearance on The Graham Norton Show. “They just wanna bone. It’s the most ridiculous situation. You just had a child! Really?” That same year, Pattinson expressed his relief that his time as Edward was finally coming to a close. When Jimmy Fallon mentioned the fans’ sadness at the end of the franchise and asked if the experience was “bittersweet,” the Batman actor quipped, “For them!” Keep scrolling to read more of the Twilight cast’s harshest quotes about the vampire epic:

The girl points to a stained glass window that features the devil, which seems like a very obvious reference to Mephisto.

"Don't worry, that devil's afraid of us," Wilson's Mobius says. "We're going to take care of him."

But Mephisto fans' excitement over his possible inclusion was cut off by Kate Herron, the show's director, who already shot down this theory.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight on June 7, Herron said: "It's honestly just a super weird coincidence. Like, it's genuinely a reference to Loki - the horns, he was cast out of heaven, that's what it's a reference to."

"We filmed that a long time before. I think 'WandaVision' must have been in post when we filmed that. I did see all the stuff about that online and I was like, 'Oh, this is going to be interesting.' But no, it's more relevant to the themes of our show and it's not a nod to that character."

'Zoey's Playlist' Cast Reacts to 'Ridiculous' Cancellation, Urges Fans to Help

  'Zoey's Playlist' Cast Reacts to 'Ridiculous' Cancellation, Urges Fans to Help Nothing to sing about! NBC announced the cancelation of musical comedy-drama Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist on Wednesday, June 9, and it didn’t take long for the Twitter uproar to begin. The series, which was on the bubble for months, took home the Emmy award in 2020 for Outstanding Choreography For Scripted Programming and was the only network show to garner a Golden Globe nomination in 2021, with star Jane Levy landing the Best Actress – Television Series, Musical or Comedy nod. “Okay. Here we are. The news is out. NBC/Peacock have decided not to go forward with another season. We can discuss that later. But right now I refuse to believe the show is dead. There is too much love and goodwill and the fan base is incredible. Now here is what I need,” the show’s creator, Austin Winsberg, tweeted on Wednesday before asking fans and the show’s cast to tweet their support of the series. For Winsberg, it’s much more than a TV show. The series follows Zoey (Levy) as she discovers she can hear other’s thoughts through song. During the first season, this was extremely helpful because she couldn’t communicate with her father (played by Peter Gallagher) after he was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), leaving him unable to move or speak. “It started from the fact that my father passed away several years ago from PSP, this degenerative neurological disease,” Winsberg told Entertainment Weekly when the series began.

While Herron's comments might not completely rule out Mephisto's involvement in the MCU - she could just be playing coy to keep the surprise under wraps - it seems pretty likely that this particular reference has nothing to do with Mephisto.

We'll have to wait and see if Mephisto pops up in "Loki" or any future MCU project down the line. But for now, Herron's show has bigger fish to fry: the potential creation of the multiverse.
