‘WandaVision’: Paul Bettany Shares Some Fatherly Wisdom for First-time Dads

WandaVision’s Vision, aka Paul Bettany, has given new dads some much-needed advice about fatherhood. In the third episode of the series, his character becomes a father to twin boys, Billy and Tommy. Viewers have seen Wanda and Vision struggle in the parenting department because of the tricks that the twins play, often using their natural superpowers.

WandaVision is the first television show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It kicked off the fourth phase of the MCU and brought back Wanda Maximoff and Vision, who try to live a happy, sitcom-like married life in Westview. But soon, they realize that not everything is as it seems in their idyllic suburbia.

In the recent episodes, it is Vision who is most suspicious about how he and all the other townspeople ended up in Westview. When Wanda gave birth to Tommy and Billy within a few days of becoming pregnant and the twins started aging wilfully, he knew something was wrong. But that hasn’t stopped him from being an adoring dad to his two sons.

Vision actor Paul Bettany is a father of three in real life, too. In an interview with Marvel.com, he has shared some advice for first-time dads who are having trouble adjusting to the new role:

“Oh, yeah, my advice for new dads is this. And it’s for the first year. Your partner is always right about absolutely everything. Just accept it.”

Fans have theorized that WandaVision’s ending will probably be tragic (especially for Vision). Hopefully, he will get more time to spend with his sons in Westview, before the whole make-believe town falls apart.

New episodes of WandaVision premiere every Friday on Disney+.
