It has been a long wait but phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting closer. Marvel Studios released the first trailer for WandaVision, a series that is due to premiere this year, focusing on Scarlet Witch and Vision. Judging from the trailer, we are due to a wild—if somewhat strange—ride.
As the trailer begins, we see the two characters, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, living a perfect ’50s suburban life as a traditional couple, filmed in black and white. As the trailer progresses this reality starts to unveil.
Starting with a strange meeting with their neighbors, the world around them begins to change. The events of Avengers: Endgame are mentioned—along with the fact that Vision is supposed to be dead. The trailer leaves the viewers wondering what brought on this Pleasantville version of life and what will happen to the couple next.
The exact release date of WandaVision is yet to be confirmed as the trailer does not mention it and ends with a simple “coming soon”. WandaVision will consist of 6 episodes which will be streamed on Disney+. Jac Shaeffer is serving as the series’ showrunner.
As Scarlet Witch is due to play a big role in the upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, we can expect the series’ story will lead us towards the movie’s.
