Before we embark on Marvel’s most Trippe project yet and get answers to those questions, we figured we could all use a refresher on what’s gone down so far with these characters. Wanda, along with her twin brother Pietro, were a pair of enhanced superhuman created to fight the Avengers.
In many ways the third Avengers film, Civil War, sees Wanda and Vision as the more seasoned members of the team. That is until they get caught up in the rift between Captain America and Tony Stark on whether the government should be able to control the Avengers, and end up on opposing sides.
But even that fails and ultimately Thanos gets a hold of Vision and kills him by literally yanking the stone out of his head. Thanos is left victorious in his mission of snapping half the world out of existence.
The dominant theories about his return and the genre change-up include that a grieving Wanda used her powers to create a false reality in which her robo-love is alive. One of Marvel's most awaited series WandaVision's first episode was released on January 15, 2021, on Disney Plus Hot star.
WandaVision plot revolves around super-powered beings Wanda and Vision who live in an ideal suburb but soon start to realize that everything is not all good as it seems. WandaVision cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Debra Jo Rump, Fred Me lamed and Kathryn Hahn among others.
The plot of this action drama revolves around 43 children who are born to women who had just experienced signs of pregnancy the day before. This sci-fi superhero show tells the story of Peggy Carter whose life turns upside down when she learns that her boyfriend, Steve Rogers, is p[resumed dead.

With 2021 in full swing, we now have the first official Marvel show to hit the silver screen. WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maxim off, The Scarlet Witch and Paul Bethany as the Vision.
And, to be fair, the show is so divorced from the regular MCU that it feels like it’s set in a completely different universe, which in some sense it actually is. It’s actually quite jarring visually, but it works so well because I personally think we’re headed the House of M route from the comics.
Again, they’re not necessary in the grand scheme of the show, but the comics will give you a bi of context to what could be going on in WandaVision. The comic starts off with Wolverine waking up in a completely different Marvel universe and his investigation leads him to Magneto.
He then finds out that Wanda’s psyche had been broken by the loss of her children and she reshaped reality using her powers. The next comic book you should read is the 2015 Vision run by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Malta.

Marvel’s latest superhero project, WandaVision will premiere in streaming space as a nine-episode series. As Kevin Face kicks off the fourth phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), he is thinking bigger, only this time the size of the screen he sets out to conquer is substantially smaller.
WandaVision, which co-stars Kat Jennings, Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, and Hannah Paris, and is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ Hot star Premium on January 15. Earlier Marvel shows like Agents of SHIELD, Jessica Jones, and, Groot help us, The Inhuman were produced by a separate division of the company.
The Scarlet Witch) and (as synthetic man the Vision), that promises that WandaVision will look and feel much more like these beloved and wildly successful movies than anything made under the old Marvel TV banner. There is clearly more going on than just the title characters moving to an artificially picaresque suburban neighborhood, starting with the fact that Vision is alive at all, after being one of the few heroes who stayed deceased at the conclusion Avengers: Endgame.
But at least for now, WandaVision shares a problem with all those defunct Defenders -adjacent shows (even if it’s livelier than all of them): Some inspired moments start to lose their effectiveness because there’s less story than there is time to fill. Paul Bethany as Vision and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maxim off star in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, every episode of which is directed by Matt Shaman.
He loved the episode “The Spoils of War” that Shaman had directed and was amazed by its climactic 20-minute dragon battle. That brings us to WandaVision, the much-anticipated new series on Disney+ (premiering Friday, January 15) and the first Marvel Cinematic Universe project to hit the popular streaming service.
Whereas the big-screen MCU movies have raked in billions thanks to those state-of-the-art action sequences, the surreal WandaVision stands out for its weekly homages to old-fashioned TV. In each 30-minute episode, Scarlet Witch, i.e., Wanda Maxim off (Elizabeth Olsen) and android Vision (Paul Bethany) explore domesticity via prototypical sitcom genres.

In 1987, he acted in a pilot with Brian Austin Green and Baleen White for an NBC sitcom about an earnest Indiana teacher and her class of smart-talking sixth graders. WandaVision director Matt Shaman and head writer JAC Schaeffer at Disney’s D23 EXPO 2019.
And while he missed out on hanging at Bayside High, Shaman did end up on a Growing Pains spin-off titled Just the Ten of Us from 1988 to 1990. “I remember I lost my mind at the final audition because I saw that Heather Langenkamp would be playing my sister and A Nightmare on Elm Street was my favorite movie!” he says.
After opening a small theater in Los Angeles, Shaman made his way back to television and worked on everything from Once and Again to Judging Amy to Six Feet Under to Brothers & Sisters. Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maxim off and Paul Bethany as Vision in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision.
Shaman says he stressed authenticity, even insisting that the cast film select scenes in front of a live studio audience. Proving that love is in the details, he also ensured that the costumes, production design, dialect, posture, music and laugh tracks synced up to each respective era.
And when it came to filming exterior suburban scenes, Shaman knew exactly where to go: Blondie Street on the backlog of the Warner Bros. Ranch in Burbank, California.
