Disney+ original ‘WandaVision’ attracts Marvel fans

MARVEL STUDIOS / DISNEY+ The final weeks of WandaVision will bring the show to its dramatic conclusion.

One of Disney Plus’s first Marvel original series, WandaVision is the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s phase four. Beginning a few weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Avengers Wanda Maximoff (Elizebeth Olson) and Vision (Paul Bettany) find themselves married, living the perfect suburban dream in the 1960’s — but not everything is as it seems. 

The first few episodes begin with a comedic, sitcom-esque style reminiscent of the ‘60s and ‘70s, with simple situations and dramatic responses, but the show’s tone gets more serious as it progresses. A good balance between edgy seriousness and comedic satire keeps fans entertained while holding them on the edge of their seat. 

One of my favorite parts of WandaVision is that it brings back characters from previous Marvel movies that we haven’t heard from recently. It is interesting how in each episode the time period changes from the 60’s to the 70’s and the 80’s. It is also nice to see Wanda in a less serious light as she was in previous Marvel movies, giving her the character development that fans have been waiting for ever since the “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Some fans might not like seeing characters like Wanda and Vision in a more comedic light, but others enjoy seeing these characters differently.

Unlike Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services that release entire seasons at once, Disney Plus is releasing a few episodes at a time. While it isn’t fun having to wait for the next episode, it builds anticipation for the next episodes so fans can see what happens next. There are 3 episodes left until the end of the first season. While WandaVision wraps up, Marvel fans can’t wait for more series coming out on Disney Plus like Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye and more.
