Disney+’s new show “WandaVision” is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the Marvel franchise.
“WandaVision” takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” when half of the population comes back after being “blipped” out of existence for five years.
The show follows storylines inspired by sitcoms through various decades, starting with the ‘50s.
This is showcased throughout the series with theme songs and different references.
In episode six, the ‘90s and early 2000s intertwine, and it’s shown through the theme song that is reminiscent of the show “Malcolm in the Middle.”
In the most recent episode, the theme song sounds very similar to “The Office” theme song which excited many fans of both Marvel and “The Office.”
Fans go into each episode confused as to what is going on and how it is all happening. However, at the end of each episode fans get a glimpse of what is really going on.
In “WandaVision,” Wanda Maximoff creates an alternate reality in the town of Westview, where life is like a sitcom.
Agents from Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) are on the scene throughout each episode trying to figure out Wanda’s motive for doing this.
Most viewers are familiar with the Avengers films and what has happened in each film, transpiring to these events.
Fans will also recognize some of their favorite characters like FBI agent Jimmy Woo from “Antman” and “Antman and the Wasp,” Darcy Lewis from “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World” and Monica Rambeau from “Captain Marvel,” who are also on the scene with S.W.O.R.D.
What makes this show amazing is the story and its execution.
Viewers automatically start hypothesizing what is going to happen next at the end of every episode as it ends in cliffhangers.
Elizabeth Olsen does a brilliant job in her role as Wanda, especially the new path that her character is going on.
Most viewers know that Wanda’s past is tragic and this just adds onto it immensely.
Fans at home are left wondering whether Wanda is the good or bad guy, which makes the show a must- watch for the events that transpire after “Avengers: Endgame.”
Along with that, Paul Bettany does a great job continuing his role as Vision. Due to the events of “Avengers: Endgame,” seeing Vision adds to the confusion and hypotheses fans create.
The show will connect upcoming Marvel films.
To be specific, “WandaVision” will be connected to “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” in 2022 and the new Spiderman film that is currently being filmed.
With only seven of 9 episodes out for the series, it has a huge following and lives up to the excitement that comes with it.
Most Marvel fans know that Marvel always hits the mark when it comes to their films.
Overall, “WandaVision” sets the stage for the Marvel films that are yet to come. Viewers can now watch up to episode seven on Disney+, and new episodes come out every Friday.
