Marvel Studios is all set to begin Phase 4 with WandaVision on Disney+ Hotstar. The studio released the first official trailer of the upcoming show and confirmed it to be the first Marvel release on Disney's streaming platform. With the first announcement from Marvel studios in a while, fans are excited to see what the makers have planned for the upcoming year.
Here are 5 things that WandaVision's trailer release confirms for Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Phase 4 Begins Early
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be quite different from the previous 3 Phases, which has the major round-up with Avengers: Endgame. The cinematic universe not only lost some of its major heroes but is also set to open up the world with several timelines and universes beyond earth.
With Phase 4, Marvel Studios is moving to the small screen and is all set to release multiple TV shows exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar. According to the studio's recent announcement, the first is set to be Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision's (Paul Bettany) WandaVision, which was originally announced in 2019 and was set to release in 2021 but has been moved up.
The earlier teaser from Super Bowl gave a glimpse in Wanda Maximoff and Vision's relationship and life. The story is set to take several parts from the several Marvel comics and show Scarlet Witch's true powers and the ability to wrap reality. We do see Wanda change reality while sitting on her couch alone, it could mean Vision is her version of his memories and nothing more. The official synopsis reads, "While living their ideal suburban life, Wanda Maximoff and Vision begin to suspect things are not as they seem".
Wanda Vision Genre
Marvel fans got the first look at the series a few months ago when footage for it and other MCU Disney+ shows was released during the Super Bowl. With the full trailer, the makers also released more details including show description which calls it half sitcom, half MCU epic. Part of the show's trailer replicates sitcoms, while other footage teases the bigger story and introduces more characters with hints of comedy and thriller.
New Characters In WandaVision
Vision's death in Avengers: Infinity War has be a key moment in Wanda's life. The show will pick up after Endgame as she struggles with accepting real life. The trailer also introduces the first look at Kathryn Hahn's Agnes (named in the trailer's captions) and grown-up Monica Rambeau played by Teyonah Parris, who was first introduced as a child in Captain Marvel. According to reports about the show's cast, the six-part episode series could also see a cameo by Doctor Strange.
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier is no longer the first Marvel show releasing on Disney+ Hotstar. Earlier, it was reported that WandaVision will release in 2021, and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier will take the lead. However, due to the pandemic and the delay in shoot, the show's release date has been updated to 2021 instead.
