Marvel President Kevin Feige shared the first look at Disney+’s WandaVision at the Comic-Con Experience. He also revealed that the series has already started filming.
At the CCXP in São Paulo, Brazil, Feige shared a preview of upcoming MCU projects, including WandaVision. He also showed an image of Olsen and Bettany in 1950s sitcom-style attires.
There is a possible theory that this 1950s image of them comes from a fantasy that Wanda has created for herself to cope with the loss, which could mean that the show is based on Avengers: Disassembled and House of M, with inspiration being drawn from King’s Vision run.
The show is anticipated as one of Marvel‘s most unconventional projects, set to be their first ‘sitcom’. The six-episode series will feature Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision.
Other cast members returning to the MCU are Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis) and Randall Park (Jimmy Woo). It will also include new talents such as Teyonah Parris as adult Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn for an undisclosed role.
The events in WandaVision are said to have an influence on Doctor Strange’s sequel movie. WandaVision is expected to premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021 but the official release date has yet to be announced. The first MCU series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, will hit the small screen in fall 2020.
Marvel has not revealed details about the series’ plot, except for the show supposedly being set in the 1950s and somehow connecting to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
A lot of questions are brewing with regards to the story’s plot. How is Vision alive when he was killed in Infinity War? Why are Wanda and Vision in the 1950s era?
At this point, fans can only speculate. Olsen said in an interview, “Gonna go weird, we’re gonna get deep, we’re gonna have lots of surprises.” We can only hope that this series will dive deeper into Wanda’s untapped powers and explore more about her character.
