Marvel Studios delivers a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe with WandaVision. In this series, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) are two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives. But over time, they begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Why did Marvel make a TV series? Is it easy to follow without watching the entire MCU? To help breakdown the series, we get some superhero assistance from SpreeNoel, a subject matter expert for all things Marvel. During our conversation, you’ll also hear some ‘super’ input from some of the stars of the show: Elizabeth Olsen, Teyonah Parris, and Kat Dennings.
I give WandaVision a 9.5 out of 10. It definitely helps if you’re familiar with their background, but, the flashback are plentiful and should provide enough backstory for you to keep up. The writing was beautiful, the amount of detail that went into the sitcoms was impressive, and the series will leave you with a laundry list of epic quotes to remember in life. You can listen above to my full review of the series, commentary from our special guest, and hear from a few of the women that make this series so special.
WandaVision is available now on Disney+. Don’t forget to subscribe to our podcast on Anchor. You can also find us on Apple, Google, and Spotify, among others. You can follow our special guest SpreeNoel on Instagram.
WandaVision may be over, but Marvel has another series waiting for us in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier this Friday, March 19, 2021. WandaVision not only sets up the next Doctor Strange film perfectly, but sets the tone for Marvel TV series to come.
