Everything about the Disney + Marvel series with Scarlet Witch and Vision!
After a long wait, the first Disney + series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally here. The series promises to further develop the characters Wanda and Vision, through the unusual premise of mixing the heroic Marvel universe with the format of American sitcoms. The plot is still shrouded in mystery, which has led fans to create several theories about the story: How is Vision a part of the series, given its ending in Avengers: Infinity War? Was the mysterious character of Agnes really Agatha Harkness? How will the series impact the Marvel Universe in theaters?
While we don’t have the answers to all of these questions yet, a lot has been released about the show since its announcement. Therefore, we’ve rounded up everything that’s most important about WandaVision, from information on the premiere to what is known about the plot, here, so you can prepare for the big premiere that marks the return. from UCM.
What will the story be about?
As evidenced by the title, the story will focus on Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Visão (Paul Bettany), while the two live as a normal couple in the suburbs. But all is not as it seems, and over time the two will begin to suspect that something is wrong, even if the couple’s life seems perfect.
This is what the brief synopsis of the series says, which only says, “WandaVision, from Marvel Studios, mixes the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and accompanies Wanda Maximoff and Visão, two super beings living a lifetime. ideal in the suburbs, we begin to suspect that all is not as it seems. The premise of the series becomes even more intriguing when we think of Wanda and Vision in the Marvel films: Although involved in a romantic relationship, the heroes will never marry and never try to live ordinary lives, as shown. series; and, more importantly, Vision is expected to be dead due to the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
In addition to Wanda and Visão, the series will star Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris). Monica was introduced to Captain Marvel, as the daughter of Maria Rambeau, Carol Danvers’ best friend. In the movie, Monica was still a child, but we will see the already adult character in the Disney + series. Monica won’t be the only known UCM character to feature in the series, which will also feature the return of Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), known to the public for her appearances in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. Another well-known character who will be part of the series is Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Of these characters, Monica seems to be the most important, as the character was included even in promotional material for the series, receiving an individual poster.
Another character who will apparently play an important role is Agnes (Kathryn Hahn), who, like Monica, has featured in promotional material for the series. So far, it’s only known that Agnes will be a neighbor of the couple, which should cause Wanda a lot of headaches. Despite this, fans have widely speculated that Agnes is in fact Agatha Harkness. In the comics, Harkness was a mentor and at times an antagonist of the Scarlet Witch.
While the first trailer for WandaVision showed more of the premise, the second trailer for the series showed some of the other characters, even briefly, while also giving more scope to the conflicts the protagonists will have to face. It’s in the second trailer, for example, that we can see a little more action. It is also possible to notice that someone is looking for Wanda and trying to contact her, while Monica Rambeau doesn’t seem to remember who she is:
We also know that the plot will have the participation of SWORD, a comic book organization that will make its debut in the WandaVision Cinematic Universe. In the series, the meaning of the acronym will be different from that of the comic, which suggests that the role of the organization will not be exactly the same as that of the comic: in them SWORD is the acronym of the “Sentient World Observation and Response Department”, also known in Brazil under the name of ESPADA (Supervision, Research, Evaluation and Foreign Defense Team); in the series, the meaning of the acronym SWORD will be “Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division”. This suggests that the organization will not deal with extraterrestrial threats, but anything that can be considered a weapon. Given the context of the series, it’s possible that SWORD’s role will be to watch Wanda.
Link with UCM
It’s been clear from the start that WandaVision is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the events of the series occur after Avengers: Endgame and the conclusion of the Infinity Saga. But that’s far from the show’s only connection to the movies. It has already been confirmed by Kevin Feige himself that the Disney + series will be an integral part of UCM, and WandaVision appears to have an important role in Marvel’s plans for upcoming franchise events.
Elizabeth Olsen herself confirmed in an interview last year that WandaVision will be linked to the upcoming Doctor Strange movie, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Although he claims to not know much, with the film’s script not yet finalized, Olsen is said to have an important role in the Doctor Strange sequel. Besides the film’s title mentioning the multiverse, the confirmation of the character América Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), reinforces the fact that the multiverse should be a central part of the plot, because one of the main powers of Miss America Chavez is her ability to open portals across multiverses.
This focus on the multiverse appears to be sticking around in the upcoming Spider-Man film, which will star Doctor Strange. There are several rumors of an adaptation of Spider-Man happening in Spider-Man 3, based mostly on casting confirmations. Still, given Doctor Strange’s involvement and the fact that the events of Spider-Man 3 are expected to happen after Multiverse of Madness and WandaVision, these rumors are gaining credibility.
Given that, it’s possible that Wanda will play an important role in starting this new phase of Marvel in theaters that promises to explore the multiverse, and it is believed that the events of WandaVision will kick off that. Due to what we know about the series, which appears to be set in some sort of alternate reality, as well as everything we know about future versions of Marvel, it is assumed that Wanda will be responsible for opening the doors to the multiverse. .
And the beginnings?
The series will arrive exclusively at Disney +, this Friday, January 15. WandaVision will have nine episodes which will be released each week. When it debuts, the first two episodes will be available, with one episode being released each Friday thereafter. There must be a break between the episodes release at some point, since the final episode is scheduled for March 12, a week before the premiere of Falcão and the Winter Soldier.
