It’s been a while since we’ve seen this duo together. Most of us thought that we said goodbye to badass Wanda and smart Vision after watching Avengers: Endgame. Of course, the article is spoiler-free, so don’t worry; you can stay to read about the brand new Disney x Marvel production. Wanda is a well-known character from the MCU, who wasn’t that appreciated, and Vision was always around Tony Stark, but going by the name Jarvis. Now it’s their time to shine, and our time to give them the hype they deserve. The nine-episode series kicks off on Disney+ January 15, 2021.
We’re not sure how the show is going to fit when it comes to MCU’s chronology, but we don’t mind at all. Disney claims it’s a perfect blend between classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And honestly, we buy it! When has Disney ever let us down before?
‘WandaVision’ is such a cool, strange, one-of-a-kind project. When the director, Matt Shakman—an old friend from my college days—pitched it to us, we didn’t have to think about it. We loved the bright feeling of American sitcoms mixed with the deep sense of unease the story had, and it was a really inviting challenge to help set that tone.

WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany as Vision, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kat Dennings will reprise her role as Darcy from Thor and Thor: The Dark World, and Randall Park will reprise his role as Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and The Wasp. This means – more good old characters are back as well!
I grew up in the ’80s watching shows from every decade on the networks all day long. Episodes from ‘I Love Lucy,’ ‘Brady Bunch’ and ‘Family Ties’ shaped who I am and how I move through the world. So this project was a dream come true.
