After a pandemic shakeup, WandaVision launched Marvel’s Phase 4 following the conclusion of the 23-film Infinity Saga. What was set to begin with Black Widow, which recently released with record-breaking numbers, was changed to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, until that, too, was shut down mid-filming. WandaVision then took up the first slot to launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next era.
Audiences were captivated by WandaVision‘s quirky, hilarious premise as it worked as a love letter to the eras of television while still maintaining its Marvel feel. The sets, costumes, and performances were ever fluid as they traveled from the 50s up to modern day, ending with an epic superhero battle. Another aspect that made WandaVision stand out in not only the superhero genre, but storytelling as a whole, was its choice to highlight grief as its main antagonist. Wanda navigated her ever prominent grief after losing everything she knew and loved until it eventually changed her forever.
Wanda’s future in the MCU is solidified as she begins her journey as the Scarlet Witch. We can only hope that Marvel takes home some prestigious Emmy gold as they continue to prove the potential of superhero stories in a world that pigeonholes them as “cookie cutter.”
The Emmy awards will air on Sunday, September 19. Cedric the Entertainer will host the show that airs on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
