Thanks to EW, we have some new photos to share with you from Marvel’s highly-anticipated Disney+ series WandaVision. When the concept of this series was first revealed, fans didn’t really know what to make of it. I saw a lot of fans say that this is a project that they weren’t interested in seeing. But as more and more details came to light and we actually got to see a trailer for the show, it seems fans have been warming up to it, and I, for one, can’t wait to see it!
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.
The images that have been shared today features Scarlett Witch and Vision living in a black and white sitcom world reminiscent of Leave it to Beaver and I Love Lucy. This is just one of many sitcom-style TV show settings that these characters will find themselves passing through on whatever trippy journey they are taking.
Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles in the series, which has previously been described as “a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel films with these characters.” It’s also been explained that the story “snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”
The series will also start Wanda Maximoff down the path of actually becoming Scarlet Witch, and the story will have repercussions for the entire future of the MCU in Phase 4. Many fans believe that involves how the film will tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and will crack open the multiverse.
The series also stars Kat Dennings reprising her role as Darcy Lewis and Randall Park returning as FBI Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp. It will also feature MCU newcomer Teyonah Parris as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, a character who first made her appearance in last year’s Captain Marvel, and Karthryn Hahn is playing Agatha Harkness.
WandaVision was originally conceived by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, which means that it’s going to be good! The series is being developed by Jac Schaeffer (Captain Marvel) who is serving as the series’ producer, showrunner, and head writer. Matt Shakman is directing the series.
