What Is WandaVision | Marvel TV Show News, Release Date, Cast, Spoilers

Marvel has imagined nearly every possible crossover in its cinematic universe, but the studio’s next TV project serves us a cocktail we didn’t see coming. Ingredients include superheroes Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), the world of ’50s black-and-white sitcoms, and…Kathryn Hahn in leg warmers? But that’s the exact concoction viewers will be sipping in late 2020 with the arrival of Disney+’s WandaVision.

The six-episode series premiered a new trailer in September that had people talking about its genre-bending premise. WandaVision is “a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems,” per an official Disney+ description.

Everything we’ve learned about the show, helmed by Matt Shakman (Succession, The Great) and written by Jac Schaeffer (Captain Marvel, Black Widow) defies easy categorization. Ahead, what we know about WandaVision from its first trailer, as well as that 2020 release date.

WandaVision will be connected to the Marvel movies.

WandaVision was first announced at Comic-Con 2019 as part of Marvel’s expansive move into TV with the help of Disney+. It’s part of a lineup that includes series’ centered on Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.

Unlike previous Marvel small-screen endeavors (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., for instance), WandaVision will be directly connected to future movies. That means whatever happens in the show’s first season can impact upcoming films, and vice-versa. However, it’s unclear how that squares away when it comes to Vision, who was killed by the villainous Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. He appears to be alive and well in the show’s first footage, although that could tie into the “everything is not as it seems” plot synopsis.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who reportedly formulated the concept for WandaVision, confirmed that the show will directly connect to the Scarlet Witch’s role in 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, per a new Entertainment Weekly cover story.

The first episode was filmed like a traditional sitcom.

According to Entertainment Weekly, WandaVision‘s premiere episode was filmed in a sitcom-like setting, complete with black-and-white formatting and a live studio audience. Crew members dressed up in ’50s-inspired clothing and period lenses were used on set. “The show is a love letter to the golden age of television,” head writer Schaeffer told the outlet. “We’re paying tribute and honoring all of these incredible shows and people who came before us, [but] we’re also trying to blaze new territory.”

WandaVision depicts the couple’s post-Endgame existence.

For those wondering how the show fits into the MCU’s timeline, it will follow the events of Endgame for both Vision and the Scarlet Witch. “We find Wanda and Vision living a blissful suburban existence, trying to keep their powers under wraps,” Schaeffer told EW. Both Bettany and Olsen told the outlet that the show offered a fresh look at their superhero characters. “They’ve had a long and gentle love affair, right?” Bettany said. “It’s a pretty quirky relationship. She’s a witch, he’s a robot. Or artificial person, or synthezoid, or whatever your preferred name tag.”

Olsen added, “It’s been the biggest gift that Marvel’s given me, getting to do this show.” She continued, “I already felt like I had ownership of her because Marvel always encourages you to be part of the process. But even more so now, I feel I have a really strong sense of ownership. If anyone wanted to ask me a question about the future or just a question about what she would think, I feel like this time has provided that.”

As for the mismatched relationship between WandaVision‘s protagonists, Schaffer told EW, “It’s always so appealing when outsiders find each other. They’re both different with capital Ds. Wanda has so much pain, and Vision has so much curiosity.”

The cast is filled with Marvel regulars—and Kathryn Hahn!

Olsen and Bettany will be joined by a host of familiar faces from the Marvel universe, including Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis from the Thor films, Randall Park as FBI agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Teyonah Parris as a grown-up Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel. (Akira Akbar played a younger version of the character in the ’90s-set movie.)

Parris spoke to EW about playing the comics’ first female Black Avenger. “I feel so special and honored to be able to walk in her shoes and bring her story to life,” Parris told the outlet. “I hope that me playing this character (a) gives a group of people who are underrepresented a chance to see themselves, and (b) seeing my face and my Black body helps them engage with Black women and our humanity.”

From the looks of the trailer, the superhero squad will be joined by Debra Jo Rupp (That ’70s Show) and Fred Melamed (In a World…) as two meddling neighbors. Speaking of which, Hahn is set to play “nosy neighbor” Agnes, per Entertainment Weekly. But rumors have swirled that she could have hidden powers of her own, beyond the witch costume she sports in the trailer (and Hahn’s ability to get me to watch anything she appears in).

The first trailer has a lot going on.

If you weren’t already intrigued by WandaVision, allow the first trailer to properly wash over you. It shows Wanda and Vision driving to their suburban home with a “Just Married” sign on the back of their vehicle. The show’s aesthetic nods to classic sitcoms like The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy. At one point, the couple appears to cradle twin baby boys in their arms. But just before you can get comfortable with Wanda and Vision’s happily ever after, it’s disrupted by prying questions from neighbors at a dinner party.

Then the pair seemingly travel through different time periods, complete with leg warmers and a brief Sonny and Cher cosplay. Bettany, Olsen, and Hahn all wear costumes at one point or another—the couple sporting their outfits from the comics and Hahn a witch’s hat. While wearing the headwear, Hahn’s character asks Vision, “Am I dead?” to which he responds, “No! Why would you think that?” She teases, “Because you are.”

There’s a whole lot to take in—something referenced by the two lead characters in the trailer’s final moments. “We are an unusual couple, you know,” Wanda admits. “Oh, I don’t think that was ever in question,” Vision replies.

It’s expected to be released in late 2020.

For fans anxious to see how Disney+ pulls this off, you won’t have to wait much longer. Although the trailer teases that WandaVision is “coming soon,” we have a more concrete idea of when the show will debut. At the start of the year, it was announced that WandaVision would premiere in late 2020, bumped up from its original spring 2021 release date, per Variety. It switched places with Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which has since been delayed due to the pandemic’s pause on television productions around the world. A Twitter video from January 2020 showcased projects set to be released from the streaming service this year, including The Mandalorian season 2 and the Lizzie McGuire reboot (RIP).

ScreenRant previously reported that the Disney+ landing page for WandaVision listed its release date as December 2020. However, it appears that month is no longer listed, leaving the exact premiere date up in the air. In Entertainment Weekly‘s cover story, it was noted that “an exact premiere date was unavailable,” although filming on the show’s six episodes concluded in late 2020 with social distance guidelines enforced.
