Though we don’t have a release date for the show yet, a lot of Marvel fans are excited for the release of WandaVision on Disney+. The series is admittedly one of Marvel’s more experimental projects, and it turns out, they went vintage when it came to shooting the show as well.
Entertainment Weekly reports that pilot for the show, in true sitcom fashion, was actually shot in front of a live studio audience; all of which have been made to sign very strict NDAs. What’s more, Marvel had shot the episode with vintage cameras and lenses, and they had the entire crew dress up in ‘50s garb just for an extra layer of authenticity.
We don’t really have an idea how the sitcom scene will run, but it was said that they had to paint Paul Bettany blue instead of maroon, since the original makeup didn’t look to great when it came to the vintage cameras.
“It was insanity,” said WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen, “… 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].” Co-star Paul Bettany also adds, “We were all so high by the end of it, we wanted to keep on running the show… Maybe take it out on tour or something. WandaVision on ice.”
With Marvel not releasing anything for the majority of 2020, a lot of fans are ready to bounce back to the MCU. Hopefully WandaVision is the best jump into Phase 4 when it eventually debuts.
No release date has been set for WandaVision, but the show is expected to release on Disney+ before the end of 2020.
