As the Marvel Cinematic Universe picks itself up after the record-breaking events of the Avengers: Infinity War arc, the superhero saga seems to be mutating off into strange and exciting new directions.
Perhaps most exciting is the trippy new TV series WandaVision – premiering exclusively on Disney+ from January 15 – starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as their super-powered MCU characters Wanda ‘Scarlet Witch’ Maximoff and AI-being The Vision. And if you haven’t checked out the trailer for this bewildering remix of the very sitcom format, you should definitely do so below.
WandaVision seems to be, in at least some small part, a weird remix of many different sitcom archetypes. Even just the trailer mimics the look and feel of wholesome black-and-white TV, groovy seventies family sitcoms, and a more contemporary sci-fi vibe too.
To finally understand the true nature of Wanda and The Vision’s mysterious afterlife predicament, you’ll have to wait until the series premieres on January 15, with six episodes coming out weekly from there.
