Here are the coolest Marvel WandaVision Fun Facts that you are going to love. Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the WandaVision press junket with Elizabeth Olsen (“Wanda Maximoff”), Paul Bettany (“Vision”), Teyonah Parris (“Monica Rambeau”), Kathryn Hahn (“Agnes”), Matt Shakman (Director), Jac Schaeffer (Head Writer) and Kevin Feige (Producer). They shared a lot about the very first Marvel sitcom. And, I enjoyed all the fun facts they shared. I am sure you will to. So, before sharing my review of the first three episodes I watched, let’s go over the tidbit gems I got during the press conference
Marvel WandaVision Fun Facts
Phase 4 of the MCU begins with WandaVision which airs for the first time on Disney Plus, January 15th! I can’t wait for all of you to watch WandaVision. It really is a must-watch. Funny, cute, mysterious. WandaVision is very different and will pull you in from the start. What makes it so? I believe a mix of all these WandaVision Fun Facts are key to how incredible this new show is:
Why and How WandaVision?
- Elizabeth Olsen describes WandaVision as “A family sitcom of two people trying to fit in and not be discovered for being different.”
- Timewise, WandaVision was made to be seen week after week on television, Kevin Feige explained.
- Kevin Feige is excited about WandaVision, the first Marvel TV show. “The unexpected has always served Marvel well. I love how bold it is.”
- The first episode is set in the ’50s, and was filmed before a live audience
- Undoubtedly, Paul Bettany says that Vision exists for Wanda.
- To prepare for the show, the talent watched many shows from different decades. And, everyone working the show paid close attention to lingo and language used throughout the years.
- Elizabeth Olsen told us that the aim was to depict the sitcom reality of the different decades. It is not necessarily a representation of the actual decade.
- Admittedly, the darker side of WandaVision took inspiration from The Twilight Zone, and it definitively takes cues from The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Brady Bunch.
- Indeed, we saw Monica Rambeau first in Captain Marvel, she is the daughter of Maria Rambeau
- Yes!!! Monica Rambeau will be with Carol Danvers and Ms. Marvel in Captain Marvel 2!
- Well, maybe not all the news we want. Feige declined to tell us when the MCU Phase 4 ends. But, someone did try to find out during the junket.
- Paul Bettany joked that he blends into the community with a lot of wings
Connecting Marvel Cinematic Universe Dots
- Teyonah Parris explained that in WandaVision we will find out what’s happened to Monica n that gap between Captain Marvel and now.
- WandaVision has Hydra commercials in it! Pay close attention to those. Fans will be able to start seeing things from the past come together (i.e. other Marvel Movies).
- Kevin Feige explained that the commercials are a way to tie-in WandaVision and the MCU.
MCU Family-Centric Moment
If ” I love you 300″ is any indication, during the press junket it was said that WandaVision is a chance for the couple to explore their life together since it all started in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was also the opportunity to go deeper into the Scarlet Witch story. It was determined that a sitcom would be the best vehicle to share that journey. Jac Shaeffer shared that ” There were a lot of different sorts of workplace sitcoms and other types of sitcoms. But, the family piece sort of kept us very centered”.
Expect all the action and plot changes we know come in all things, Marvel. Additionally, get ready for nostalgia, and warmth. Plus, based on Kevin Feige’s take on TV: ” I watched too much TV as a kid. TV meant a lot to me and I found comfort in television families.
We can anticipate the program to try and bring families together!
Marvel Studios presents “WandaVision,” a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
