Murphy's Multiverse is reporting a source claims Nightmare has been cast in WandaVision and will serve as the Disney+ series' villain. The outlet says it has, at this time, been unable to get corroboration from another source, so this should be considered a rumor and thus taken with a grain of salt.

Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Nightmare first appeared in 1963's Strange Tales #110. The immensely powerful demon rules the Dream Dimension and gets power by tapping into the psychic energies of unconscious people.
