BREAKING NEWS: WandaVision Trailer Airs During Emmy Awards- See It Here
What an exciting night at the Emmy’s! During this evening’s festivities Disney/Marvel treated us to a BRAND NEW Trailer for the upcoming series WandaVision which is one of the first Marvel projects heading straight to Disney’s streaming network in the year ahead!
Let’s take a look:
Here’s a look at the brief synopsis that accompanied the clip on YouTube:
“Welcome to WandaVision. Coming soon to Disney+. Marvel Studios’ captivating new series “WandaVision” stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.”
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.
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 video 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 70’s 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.
