Are you as hyped for WandaVision as we are? The more details that emerge, the more excited we get.
D23 was filled with announcements and news regarding all the upcoming Marvel series’ we’ll see debuting on Disney+ throughout the next two years, and one of those sneak peeks involved an exclusive concept art poster for WandaVision.
The concept art raises a lot of questions. These are not the semblances of the Scarlet Witch and Vision we’ve seen throughout their previous Marvel appearances, in fact, it doesn’t even look to be in the same era. It’s also important to note, that Vision died at the end of Avengers: Infinity War at the hands of Thanos — so how is he there?
At a quick glance, this seems to be a sitcom about a happy family sometime in the 1950s, but at a closer look, we can pick out some small details. One, the poster itself is actually black and white, yet the illumination from the television sends a beam of color into the monochromatic setting. Speaking of the television, around the screen itself you can see Scarlet Witch’s power’s signature red luminance, raising the question of if — or how — her powers are involved in Vision’s sudden reappearance. Finally, on the back wall you see shadows, as you would expect. However, these shadows show Vision and Scarlet Witch as we’ve come to recognize them; the faint glimmer of the mind stone set in Vision’s forehead, and Wanda’s silhouette actually more closely resembles her look in the classic comics complete with her headpiece.
The creators and stars of the show have been taunting us with vague details since the show was announced at San Diego Comic-Con. We know that it starts off as what Paul Bettany describes as “bonkers”, and that somehow the six hour mini-series leads us into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (which is supposedly Marvel’s first crack at a horror film.) The show is said to follow some popular Scarlet Witch comic story lines, and rumor has it they’ll be branching into those Multiverses we’ve been hearing about.
Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, and also joining the show are Kat Dennings as Darcy from the Thor series, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo who you’ll recognize from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Kathryn Hahn as a new character described as a “nosy neighbor”.
WandaVision is gearing up to be an impressive new style from Marvel creators, giving audiences a fresh new look at a familiar character. It’s also adding to the increasing leading female superhero projects that Marvel is letting loose in Phase Four. Along with Scarlet Witch, Phase Four brings us a standalone Black Widow film, a She-Hulk mini-series, a Miss Marvel mini-series, and Jane Foster taking up the mantle of the Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.
WandaVision releases exclusively on Disney+ in spring of 2021.
