What We Know So Far About The New Marvel Series WandaVision Coming to Disney+
If you turned into Super Bowl LIV on Sunday then you no doubt caught the trailer for the three Marvel shows coming to Disney Plus in the year ahead! One of the most intriguing aspects of the trailer was getting a closer look at Elizabeth Olsen’s turn as the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming series WandaVision.
Let’s take a look:
The 6-episode series also features fellow Avenger Paul Bettany as Vision. Though their romance came to an end on the big screen it would appear from the clip above that all is not as it seems!
If your interest is as piqued as ours is after the trailer above then here’s a quick review of what we know so far about WandaVision.
When Will WandaVision Debut?
WandaVision was originally slated for a 2021 release but the news just came out the project is being bumped forward until December 2020.
The title derives its name from the Scarlet Witch who’s real name is Wanda Maximoff and Vision. Get it? WandaVision. For those following along with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’ll know that Wanda is an Avenger with telekinesis and telepathy and VIsion is a hybrid of J.A.R.V.I.S, the Mind Stone and Ultron. The pair started a romantic relationship in Infinity War but ended when Vision was killed by Thanos.
In addition to the two title characters, we know that the series will also feature Teyonah Parris in the role as an adult Monica Rambeau (daughter of Maria Rambeau who is besties with Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel.) Kat Dennings will also be playing Darcy Lucy (From Thor and Thor: The Dark World) and Randall Park will be back as FBI agent Jimmy Woo who was last seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Kathryn Hahn has also signed on as Wanda’s neighbor.
What We Know So Far About the Plot
As you can see from the few clips featured in the Super Bowl trailer, the series looks like it will focus on the relationship between Wanda and Vision. In a recent interview Kevin Feige said the project will center on, “Having the opportunity to tell more of their story, to see more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision Vision, and — most importantly — reveal a name that I’m not even sure we’ve said in the MCU yet, but we absolutely make a big deal of in the show, which is that Wanda is, in fact, the Scarlet Witch,”
It’s obvious from the Super Bowl clip and the teaser image that the series will not be in linear time. We’ve seen images of the couple in a 50s sitcom setting as well as in a 70s Brady Bunch sort of setting. Feige has in the past hailed the show as the first Marvel sitcom.
The main thing we know about WandaVision right now is that we can expect it to fit comfortably within the Marvel Cinematic Universe but that it is also a ground-breaking series that asks us to expect the unexpected.
Paul Bettany has hinted that a more in-depth trailer for the series in on the horizon! So keep following along with MickeyBlog and we promise to keep you posted as soon as we know more!
