Marvel recently released a new book, Marvel’s WandaVision: The Art of the Series, which discusses the design of the Darkhold. Russell Bobbitt, the series’ prop master, revealed that the Darkhold contained a piece of Yggdrasil that was last seen in Thor: The Dark World (2013). Bobbit then explained how his team came up with the design:
“We started a very long time ago in book design using cattle and stones and all the elements they could find in the early days of book making. We started there. We added some Yggdrasil, which is the Marvel tree that encompasses all of our worlds. We played with that. We played with mosaics. We played with stones. We played with all that stuff.

Yggdrasil is the world tree as it connects all realms together. Marvel hasn’t said if the World Tree survived the events of Thor: Ragnarok (2017)but it is possible that Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) can display the world tree again. by WandaVision the props team also got help from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) the prop team as they wanted the Darkhold to feel good in the next strange doctor continued:
“It was their design that we used, and in fact London created the spellbook for us. The binding has hieroglyphs in it and the pages have this sort of Doctor Strange-esque feel as if a book from the Kamar-Taj library.

It makes sense that Marvel wanted the look of the Darkhold to fit into the MCU. He will certainly play an important role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Darkhold has many ties to the more supernatural side of the MCU, as Blade, Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, and Moon Knight have encountered the book in the comics.
As Marvel continues to pass the torch to new heroes, the Avengers won’t be alone in defending the world. It’s only a matter of time before we see the Young Avengers, Illuminati, Defenders, Midnight Sons, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Thunderbolts enter the MCU.
