The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has officially kicked off Phase 4 with the release of WandaVision on Disney Plus. Based on the trailers alone, we honestly had no idea what the show was going to be about and even after the first episode, we are still in the same boat!
The show starts by bringing Wanda and Vision back in as a loving couple and throws them straight into a sitcom with no explanation. And as things begin to move along, you’ll soon realize that the characters are as confused as its audiences.
The show brilliantly hints that things aren’t as what it seems at the back of its characters’ minds and still casually plays out their lives as merrily as possible to divert their focus.
In reality, that’s pretty much what the show is doing to us too. Halfway through the episode, you’ll completely ignore that it’s an MCU series and more on the relationship between the Wanda and Vision as a sitcom.
And after all the confusion and entertainment, the audiences receive their first clue at the end of the show. Much like in the Inception movies of having a dream within a dream; WandaVision is a sitcom that’s getting broadcasted within the MCU universe, possibly to everyone.
Despite being called an MCU show, it does everything it can to avoid being one. And yet, it works perfectly to keep you entertained and drawn in, albeit at a much slower pace but it most certainly grows on you.
So if you’re hoping to get into the action that MCU provides as quickly as possible, then you’ll have to wait a couple of more episodes. And don’t worry about getting bored and forgetting about the show, because the continued suspense of everything will have you coming back for more.
