If you’re among those that think that WandaVision was “weird” or “confusing,” just wait. It looks like things are about to get a lot more interesting. Earlier today Marvel Studios dropped a midseason trailer (see above), and the rest of the season looks to ramp up the intensity. And is it just us, or does Vision look worried in the new, official artwork for the series?
Before we get into that, here’s the official synopsis for the series from the studio, for those remain unfamiliar:
Marvel Studios’ WandaVision 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.
WandaVision Reveals Coming In Second Half Of Season
Episode 4 beautifully tied the first, odd-seeming episodes together as we got to see Westview from the outside world. For now, all signs point to Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) controlling the alternative reality in which she and Vision seem to exist. But (and there’s always a “but” in the MCU), things are of course not exactly as they seem. Monica Rambeau’s mention of Ultron begins to show the cracks in the illusion… but to what end?
Based on the new poster, the Westview “character” of Agnes seems poised to take a larger role in WandaVision as the season moves on. But why does Vision look concerned? Perhaps because he’s not really alive? Regardless of what happens, episode 4 was epic for no other reason than the introduction of the best additions to the show. Kat Denning’s Darcy (of the Thor films) returns to the MUC, and Ant Man actor Randal Park returns to play Jimmy Woo to perfection.
Where it goes from here remains a mystery. At least now we have a little more to go on.
