While WandaVision was airing on Disney+, it followed through on the implicit promise that nothing in Wanda’s sitcom universe was quite right. However, at least one Westview resident turned out to be exactly what he appeared, and now he’s got a song to prove it: Dennis the Mailman, portrayed by Amos Glick.
Glick stars in his own music video, singing about how he loves the Marvel Cinematic Universe and all of its fans, but they’re mistaken if they try to fit his character into any theories about the show. All he does, and all he wants to do, is deliver the mail.
Dressed in his uniform and flanked by two USPS colleagues, Dennis the Mailman dances through the neighborhood dropping rhymes about WandaVision, the MCU and his unassuming part in it all. “Don’t shoot, it’s me, plain as can be, Dennis the Mailman,” goes the chorus of the surprisingly catchy song. “Caught in the Hex, just like all the rest, I ain’t got no motives or evil plans.”
The video features a sentient mailbox, shoutouts to WandaVision‘s core cast and a collection of townspeople serving as backup dancers. It’s also packed with MCU Easter eggs, with Dennis going about his business while paying no attention to items in the foreground like Thor’s hammer, Captain America’s shield and Daredevil tied to a chair. He even notes that fans have been whispering about how he’s “probably Mephisto,” a reference to what has become a running joke about viewers thinking that Marvel’s devilish character could be hiding anywhere.

His declaration that he’s actually Thanos is rejected by everyone else acting in the video, in spite of the costume and model Infinity Gauntlet he’s wearing, and he walks off the set humming “Dennis the Mailman”…just like everyone who listens to the song will.
Written by Jac Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn as Agnes. The full series is streaming on Disney+.
