Our Review of Marvel Studios ‘WandaVision‘ Coming to Disney+ on Jan 15th. The future of the MCU is bright and with plenty of stories, both new and continuing, it’s a real treat when you get to dive deeper into characters who have played integral roles but never truly received the spotlight until now. We had the pleasure of being some of the first to see what it to come from WandaVision and here is our review of the first Disney+ Original Series from Marvel Studios, WandaVision.
First and foremost, we know Marvel fans have been disappointed by delays caused by the pandemic. Despite these unforeseen circumstance we have to say WandaVision was well worth the wait and is the perfect return to the MCU after the hiatus. The series contains the witty and clever storytelling we have come to love from Marvel while also scratching that action packed itch we all have been waiting to see.
Originally, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was set to be the first show to premiere on Disney+ for Marvel Studios, but in all honesty, WandaVision is a much better starter. For instance, the entire series honors classic television and sitcoms that drew audiences in for decades while transitioning into modern entertainment. With the show ushering in a new era for Marvel Studios it distinctly parallels the transition from standard television viewing to the readily available streaming services we have now.
Be sure to pay attention! This is NOT the series to play in the background or scroll through your phone while watching. There are unspoken hints and symbolism in every episode. You are not going to want to miss out on important clues… but wheres do they lead? The Devil is in the details. We also suggest listening carefully to the repeating themes through out each episode. 😉
WandaVision also tackles important issues such as mental health, sexism, generational pressure, the ideals of family/suburban life, and more throughout the series. One of the most exciting aspects about the show is that we finally get to dive deeper into the characters Wanda Maximoff and Vision while they usher in a new set of characters such as an adult version of Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), Agnes? (Kathryn Hahn) and many more new faces that stand out on their own and help us to become invested in their stories too.
Overall, we are loving what WandaVision has to offer and can’t wait to see where this is leading the MCU as we enter Phase 4. We also can’t wait to see what you think! Be sure to share your favorite moments from the premiere this Friday, January 15th in the comments and as always we would love to hear your predictions too.
