Review: WandaVision - Season 1 (2021)
Living idealized suburban lives, super-powered beings Wanda and Vision begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Even though it seems to start off slowly, WandaVision really starts to pick up at episode 4. The first couple episodes are genuinely quite bizarre and confusing but they do help set the tone and stage for the later episodes. As the series progresses, you're slowly rewarded with answers to the mysteries of Westview and a treasure trove of Easter eggs. If you're a fan of the MCU franchise, you will see many references to other Marvel films, even Marvel films that weren't previously considered canon in the MCU. WandaVision almost becomes like a nexus for all the different media properties that have been produced under Marvel Studios. Due to Wanda's abilities to bend reality, WandaVision gives the MCU franchise unlimited possibilities that can be explored for the next phase. WandaVision also helps to establish Wanda's powers and flesh out her origin story a bit more which was only briefly touched upon during Age of Ultron. It is the first Marvel property to slightly explore the spooky and horror genre, which could be very exciting. It also gives a lot of fan favorite side characters a lot more screen time, so Jimmy Woo stans can rejoice. Overall, Wandavision is a fantastic addition to the MCU universe. It is unique and will help create renewed interest into the MCU franchise. I'm excited for what the next season and the rest of phase 4 will bring!
