Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe, lives with his beloved android Vision in some strange world that resembles a naive sitcom of the mid-20th century. However, what this universe really is? Is this the real world or the reality created by Wanda’s mind after Vision’s death?
- The first episode of the new series will premiere at the end of 2020 on the Disney+ streaming platform.
- “WandaVision” will be the first television series to be released by Marvel Studios. Previously, TV series with characters from Marvel comics were released at other studios or were filmed by Marvel Television, which was closed at the end of 2019. It looks like Marvel and Disney have decided to raise the stakes – new series will be tightly integrated with new blockbusters thereby expanding the pretty vast Cinematic Universe. “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, which was not finished before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, was planned as the first next-generation Marvel TV series, but lost to “WandaVision”.
- “WandaVision” will not only tell the story of Wanda Maximoff, which many Marvel fans miss, but will also become a semantic node in the MCU – according to the producers, the TV series will become a kind of backstory for the “Doctor Strange” sequel which will be released in 2022. According to other rumors, it is Scarlet Witch who will create the X-Men as it was in the plot of one of the comics. Since Marvel recently regained the rights to film mutant characters and is clearly looking for an opportunity to integrate X-Men into its cinematic universe, this sounds very plausible.
WandaVision is an American-made TV series based on Marvel comics in the fantasy genre. Season 1 will premiere in late 2020 on the Disney+ streaming platform.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
