MCU Storytelling at Its Finest
When talking about WandaVision, Marvel Studios President and Marvel CCO Kevin Feige expressed his excitement about the show and how it’s the perfect expansion for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) storytelling. The first episode is already available on Disney+, with eight more to premiere every week. Season one consists of nine episodes in total, and this is what we know so far.
WandaVision Sees Two Superheroes Living Suburban Lives
After tying the knot, Wanda and Vision end up in Westview, a picture-perfect town where they have to adapt to suburban life and hide their powers. Director Matt Shakman says WandaVision is a blend of classic sitcoms and the boundless Marvel Cinematic Universe. Each episode will pay homage to a different decade of TV history, including shows like Full House, I Love Lucy, Family Ties, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Olsen, who plays Wanda, shared that both she and Paul (Vision) had to take a crash course on each TV era to get everything right, including vocal changes and mannerisms. They even made the bold decision to shoot the first episode in front of a live audience, which was pretty nerve-wracking for the actors at first.
Chronologically speaking, WandaVision’s timeline takes place after the events of Infinity War and Endgame, which means Thanos is left in the past. Then again, this would also mean that Vision is dead (after the Soul Stone was plucked out of his head). So how exactly did they bring him back? Is he really back? Ah well, there’s only one way to find out!
