Tune In To WandaVision

Published

on

We’ve had a tease from Disney Plus before. But at the Emmy’s we got to see the first full trailer for WandaVision. This will be the first time the MCU has expanded into a TV series. Whilst we’re still awaiting an official launch date, December this year seems to be likely.

The series offers something not seen in the MCU before, creating real curiosity. The show looks initially to be set in American TV sitcoms from the 1950s and beyond.

If you recall Vision (Paul Bettany) died at the end of Avengers Infinity War at the hands of Thanos. As he wasn’t a victim of the click dusting he wasn’t brought back to life with everyone else. Vision’s return seems to have to take a different path thanks to the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

Stuck in TV land

This series seems to be suggesting will take place in an alternative reality. One where the Scarlet Witch has the ability to change things so that they don’t behave as you would expect. In this alternative reality, Wanda is able to be reunited with Vision once again. They’re able to get married, have children and live the life they both wanted together. Just like in the original comic-book stories.

Wanda manipulates their appearance to fit in with their surroundings. This depends on the TV era that they’re seen in.

If you’re not familiar with classic American sitcoms some of the references may go over your head.

A nod to Captain Marvel

We see the character of Monica Rambeau, daughter of Maria Rambeau. Maria was Carol Danvers best friend from the Captain Marvel movie. Now grown up she is an agent of some kind, possibly with the new incarnation of S.H.I.E.L.D.

There’s a great sequence which seems to be set at Halloween. We see Scarlet Witch in her original comic book outfit. Then Vision dressed in a homemade version of his threads.

We don’t get to see much of what’s happening outside of the artificial reality that Wanda has created. That’ll just have to be a surprise to find out what’s happening elsewhere.

MCU Phase 4

This show may be the first tease of mutants entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Ant-Man 3.
