Remember those Marvel TV shows we were promised like a million years ago?

BUZZFEED – Well, one of them finally has a release date, and it’s WandaVision! Drumroll please..

The show, along with The Falcon and the Winter Solider, was supposed to premiere this year, but 2020 had other plans. I know the concept of 2021 seems abstract and impossible, but it’s less than two months away!

At this point, it’s not entirely clear what exactly we should expect from WandaVision. The trailer honestly left me with more questions than answers.

Here’s what we know for sure: We’re gonna see Wanda and Vision in a bunch of different eras, including the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. This is probably due to Wanda’s reality-altering abilities.

There’s definitely a part of the show that pays homage to the classic sitcoms of the ’50s, like this scene that is reminiscent of I Love Lucy. The trailer seems to hint that there will also be more ~dramatic~ elements.

Here’s to 2021 starting off RIGHT.

EMPIRE – Ever since her introduction in the post-credits sequence of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Wanda Maximoff has always been an ensemble player in its subsequent superhero smackdowns, realigning her allegiances in Age Of Ultron, joining the airport fray in Civil War, and making sure Thanos knew exactly what she was capable of in the finale of Endgame. But she’s never been centre stage before, until now. In WandaVision, the first of the MCU’s upcoming run of Disney+ limited series which tie directly into the long-running movie franchise, she’s the star of the show, paired up once again with Paul Bettany’s Vision for a mind-bending sitcom-inspired comic book mystery.

Elizabeth Olsen’s character, aka Scarlet Witch, might have proved she was more powerful than we were ever aware of at the end of Endgame, but audiences are about to understand her a whole lot better – including what exactly she can do with those Mind Stone-imbued powers. “If you look at the Infinity Saga, I don’t think any single person has gone through more pain and trauma than Wanda Maximoff. And no character seems to be as powerful as Wanda Maximoff. And no character has a power-set that is as ill-defined and unexplored as Wanda Maximoff,” MCU boss Kevin Feige tells Empire. “So it seemed exploring that would be worthwhile post-Endgame. Who else is aware of that power? Where did it come from? Did the Mind Stone unlock it?”

The natural vehicle to explore that power-set? A six-episode romp through sitcom history, with Wanda experiencing a reality that sees her somehow living the American Dream with her robo-beau – despite the fact that we saw him definitively cark it in Infinity War. The results should be like nothing Marvel – or anyone else, for that matter – has done before, bringing superhero set-pieces and psychological character study to an unabashed love-letter to classic domestic situation comedies. “I loved TV, and watched far too much The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy and Bewitched and everything,” Feige says of his viewing habits as a kid. And while the bits we’ve seen of WandaVision so far tease homages to old black-and-white series, it has plenty more up its sleeve. “We go up to the Modern Family and The Office style,” Feige reveals. “The talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style.”

The upcoming Disney+ series is a wonderfully weird send-up of sitcoms of the past — and Marvel’s key to the future. Don’t touch that dial.

 

EW – Last year, the notoriously secretive Marvel Studios did something unprecedented: It opened its set to visitors. WandaVision, the six-hour series about Elizabeth Olsen’s reality-altering witch and Paul Bettany’s charming android, takes inspiration from beloved TV comedies, from campy 1950s classics to the zany family shows of the ’90s. So for its premiere episode, Marvel’s first Disney+ TV show went full midcentury sitcom, filming in classic black and white in front of a live studio audience (all of whom signed very, very strict NDAs).

Crew members came to set in ’50s-era clothing, and used period lenses and lighting to capture that dreamy vintage glow. The special-effects team employed wires and camera tricks straight from Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie, making wine bottles appear to pour on their own and household appliances zoom about like magic. And when Vision’s familiar maroon skin didn’t look quite right in grayscale, the makeup artists painted Bettany blue instead.

Bettany and Olsen rehearsed their entrances and exits as if putting on a play, and at first, they say the notion of live performance terrified them more than any Marvel supervillain. But by the time they secured their first audience chuckle, the pair realized they might have missed their calling as sitcom stars. “It was insanity,” Olsen, 31, says with a laugh. “There was something very meta for my own life because I would visit those tapings as a kid, where my sisters were working [on Full House].”

“We were all so high by the end of it, we wanted to keep on running the show,” Bettany, 49, adds. “Maybe take it out on tour or something. WandaVision on ice.”

It looks like Marvel Studios might be setting up Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to have been mutants this whole time.

MOVIE WEB – It’s beginning to look like Disney and Marvel Studios are starting to retcon the Marvel Cinematic Universe to introduce the X-Men and other mutants. The Wakanda Files: A Technological Exploration of the Avengers and Beyond book was just released this week and it has been shedding a lot of light on the MCU and some of its lesser-known secrets, including why Tony Stark made the Iron Spider suit for Peter Parker and what Shuri has been up to since the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame.

Now, it appears that The Wakanda Files is setting up that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have been mutants this whole time. Both characters made their MCU debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron, at a time when Fox still had the rights to their Marvel properties, including the X-Men. This meant that the words “mutant” or “X-gene” could not be included within the MCU. So, the powers of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were explained in another way.

In Age of Ultron, exposure to the Mind Stone in Loki’s scepter was the reasoning that Marvel Studios gave as to how Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver received their powers. HYDRA’s Baron von Strucker referred to them as “Miracles.” In The Wakanda Files, Baron von Strucker refers to “appropriate genetic markers [that] make them conducive for human trial volunteers.” In a separate part of the book, Dr. List wonders why “other subjects failed and perished,” when compared to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. He begins to theorize that it was their “shared abhorrence for Tony Stark and all that he represents.” However, now many are wondering if their mutant powers were there this whole time and were just waiting to be unlocked.

The term “latent” is often used in Marvel Comics to discuss the powers of different mutants becoming awakened. This could be how the MCU slowly works mutants into their stories over time. The Wakanda Files seems to provide a subtle hint that the word “mutant” is going to start being used in the MCU, which could provide a straight path to a new team of X-Men, which is something Marvel fans have been wanting since 2008, when everything kicked off with Iron Man. However, there could be one more major hint arriving by the end of this year.

WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney+ sometime before January. So far, it looks like a bizarre fever dream of Wanda Maximoff’s where Vision is still alive, as they go in and out of classic sitcoms. Could mutants be introduced in the upcoming MCU show? For now, a lot of comic book fans are wondering if the series could be the project to bridge the gap between the Fox properties and their new home at Disney. None of this has been officially confirmed, but the Wakanda Files seems to be hinting at the future. You can head over to Quartoknows Publishing to get more information about The Wakanda Files.

THE DIRECT – Marvel Studio was set to start Phase Four with a bang, not just with their initial 2020 films Black Widow and The Eternals, but also with television shows produced exclusively for Disney+. The first Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, was set to release in August 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped production in its tracks in early March.

While the series has been recently gearing up to complete filming, the likelihood that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be able to meet their release date was becoming more and more uncertain. Now, a new report seems to confirm the inevitable news.

NEWS
According to a report from Laughing Place, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was not on the list of titles coming to Disney+ in August 2020. While Walt Disney Studios has yet to make an official statement concerning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it is expected that the show will not meet its initial August release window for the streaming service.

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier still needed to finish filming for a few days in the Czech Republic and in Atlanta, Georgia as well. While it’s unfortunate to see the show’s release officially be delayed, it was not a surprising outcome given that the series had yet to wrap principal photography.

It’s likely that the other Disney+ shows like WandaVision and Loki will also see some delays, as the Disney+ slate gets pushed back in the same way Marvel Studios’ film slate did back in April. This will give every series all the necessary time to finish filming and post-production, without having to be tied to a quickly approaching release window.

Delaying the Disney+ shows would also be necessary for the MCU’s timeline, given that the shows were created with the intentions of both affecting and being affected by the events of the films. Marvel Studios plans everything out to a tee, and while it may be a few more months before fans can see these highly-anticipated shows, there’s no doubt it will all pay off in the end.

DISNEY INSIDER – After Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series WandaVision was moved up to December 2020, the series hit a major snag, as did the rest of Hollywood due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Major film and television productions are slowly been given the green light to restart production again. According to a Facebook post by Tampa Bay Comic Con, Paul Bettany had to cancel his appearance due to being called back to resume WandaVision filming in July, the cast and crew had a wrap party back in March, but work still needs to be done, which includes reshoots.

“We finally received word from Paul Bettany’s representation, and unfortunately Paul had to cancel his appearance at TBCC this year due being called back by Disney for WandaVision filming in July, in Los Angeles. We’re working on guest additions!”

The studio has been working on post-production during the Hollywood shut down. If work indeed continues on small shoots in July, that would mean the series could still hit it’s December 2020 release.

Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, as they become the perfect married 50’s, nuclear family.

Teyonah Parris will also appear on the series as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn is playing a nosey neighbor reportedly named Agatha. Josh Stamberg will also appear alongside Randall Park as secret agents.

According to recent reports Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch was on set for the last week of filming for WandaVision, which lines up with another story reported stating longtime Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would be the antagonist for the series, as well as Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige previously stating the film will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Earlier this week, A report surfaced that Evan Peters (American Horror Story) joined the series last summer in an unknown but a key role and shot his scenes towards the end of last year. Fans are now speculating what his role could be; the popular but least likely guess is Wanda’s brother Pietro aka Quicksilver, a role he played in Fox’s X-Men universe and was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The series is also rumored to have shot in front of a live studio audience, and will pay homage to the multi-camera sitcom comedies throughout television history, including I Love Lucy.

WandaVision is expected to make its debut on Disney+ later this year.

THE VERGE: Marvel Studios used its big Super Bowl advertising spot to quickly tease three upcoming Disney+ series: Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision.

There wasn’t much footage from any of the series, but there was enough glimpses to tease fans. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Anthony Mackie’s Sam “Falcon” Wilson pick up Captain America’s shield and maneuver around with it. The series picks up where that arc ended, as Steve Rogers’ best friends try to navigate a world he’s no longer in. The show brings back Mackie’s Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Endgame ended with Steve Rogers handing over his Captain America shield to Sam. The teaser also showed a glimpse of Zemo’s return, the villain made famous in Captain America: Civil War.

WandaVision’s footage showed off scenes of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision interacting with each other in a house. The show was previously teased at Disney’s biennial D23 convention as a surreal sitcom-like take on their relationship. Loki had the least amount of footage, but showed actor Tom Hiddleston back in the role.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of two big Marvel series hitting Disney+ this year. The company previously announced that WandaVision would receive a 2020 release date, moving up from its original 2021 window. Both WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier will tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Much like what The Mandalorian was to Lucasfilm, all eyes will be on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as Marvel’s first big Disney+ series. Since Disney has launched Disney+, big changes behind-the-scenes have shed light on how important the integration between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the TV shows will be going forward. Kevin Feige, the visionary behind the MCU, now oversees all of Marvel Entertainment. Prior to the Disney+ launch, Jeph Loeb oversaw the various Marvel shows on various Disney networks, and streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. That changed late last year.

Now, Feige oversees everything Marvel, both cinematically and on the TV side. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be joined by the aforementioned WandaVision this year, followed by Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moonknight in the coming years.
