WandaVision launched Marvel’s Phase 4, as well as their growing list of television series coming to Disney+. Due to pandemic delays and shuffles, WandaVision was pushed front and center to debut an all-new era for the massively successful franchise after its Infinity Saga conclusion with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Fans were heading into the unknown as three of our core six heroes had fallen in those final films. And WandaVision‘s premise was their whackiest to date.
Deciding to focus on Wanda Maximoff’s insurmountable grief versus a classic supervillain, WandaVision reimagined the superhero genre. Featuring nine episodes, each took viewers through a different decade of television starting with the 50s and ending in current times. With each new episode came an entirely new set, new costumes, and even new performance styles, stretching the limits of television in ways that had never been seen before.
WandaVision starred Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes/Agatha Harkness, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, and Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo.
Look back at all of our WandaVision coverage including episodic recaps, deep dives, and our review! You can watch all nine episodes exclusively on Disney+.
Audiences can tune in for an edited presentation of the 2021 Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, September 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX.
