Following the earth-shattering conclusion of “Avengers: Endgame,” and some hints of what’s to come in “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is looking more interesting and experimental than ever before.
“WandaVison,” a show that Kevin Fiege described as part classic sitcom and part Marvel epic, had its first trailer promise both of those options.
When we last saw Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Vision (Paul Bettany), Witch was moments away from killing the almighty Thanos, while Vision was killed by having the Infinity Stone ripped from his head.
However, in the trailer, the two are a married couple living a fun-filled, black and white life in the 1950s. Viewers quickly see that not everything is what it seems.
The trailer leaves viewers with more questions than answers. All we know is that the show will be tackling the styles of a ’50s sitcom, like “I Love Lucy” and “Leave it to Beaver.” However, the show will also be on the scope of a regular MCU film.
From what the trailer does show off, it appears that much of the sitcom reality could be a construct of Scarlet Witch’s powers, similar to what we saw her do back in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, but on a much larger scale, bringing others into her own illusions.
One of the characters includes Monica Rambeau who viewers last saw in “Captain America.” Viewers are introduced to a new character, played by Kathryn Hahn, who starred in “Bad Moms,” as a nosy neighbor who gives us one of the trailer’s more cryptic moments, like the explanation to Vision of his death.
Along with a glimpse at the cast, the trailer also gave fans a little treat by revealing quick looks at both Vision and Scarlet Witch’s retro comic costumes, although fans might think they’re similar looking to Halloween costumes.
The only thing this trailer does not give us is a release date. However, viewers know that the show will be coming out in late 2020.
It is important to note that “WandaVision” wasn’t supposed to be the only MCU show released this year. One show “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” was also set to be released this fall, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show was delayed until 2021. “WandaVision’s” production had wrapped in time for them to stick to their original release date.
It will also be interesting to see how this show ties into the “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” which is set to release March of 2022.
