For a while it’s been teased that WandaVision would be an ode to classic sitcoms, and we would be jumping from era to era in the show. What’s interesting is, the new posters that have been dropping from Disney+ have all hinted at the different eras and what Wanda and Vision will look like in them.

While a lot of the show’s plot is up in the air, at least this gives us a bit more structure to the series, and we’ll know what we’re looking at when everything finally plays. Though we’ve seen a lot of the I Love Lucy era in the teasers, I’m excited to see what the modern TV era is going to look like—complete with talking heads and handheld cam.
I’ll be honest, though The Mandalorian is getting all the praise online, I’m hoping that WandaVision is something significantly different. First off, I would want a proper 1-hour format to really give time for characters to develop, and they should have a proper serialized story. Sure it should still be fun for the kids, but a lot of people are hoping that these Disney+ miniseries will bring in some more mature storytelling moving forward.
Welcome to WandaVision. Coming soon to Disney+. Marvel Studios’ captivating new series “WandaVision” stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
For now, WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney+ on Jan. 15, 2021.
