Wanda Vision is a mini-series available on Disney+ taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. It is, to me, better to have seen the movies if you want to understand every part of the story, but not necessary.
Blends the style of classic sitcoms with the MCU, in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision – two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.

It took me some time to get to this show, even though I am a big MCU fan. One of the main reason being that I adore simply adore the character of Vision, and the last Avengers broke me into a million pieces. I have been routing for those two for years now, and having a TV show about a part of their relationship is everything I could have hoped for.
I loved the narrative of the series. At the start, every episode is inspired by a sitcom from different eras. It was a risk to start the storyline on such a concept, regarding the fact not a lot of people enjoy sitcoms or Black & White programs. But they found a way to blend those amazing characters and the MCU into the concept amazingly. At the right beginning, you can feel something is not right, not only because the characters experience it as well but also thanks to the directing and the actors, the whole convey such a strong unease right from the start!
The storyline itself is very interesting. You start watching thinking you are going to enjoy a light and fun show, with two characters who are usually in full battle-mode all the time. And you have it. But you also have the truth behind it all at some point, the things that have been kept from you and the characters, and that’s the genius. The story is built around something fake, and you somehow believe in it right until the end.
The Photography has something deeply different than the other things we are used to in the MCU. And I am not only talking about the format of the first episodes, or the changes in the frames, or even the colours. The VFX themselves have something new, from a different inspiration. It is as epic, but maybe more plausible in a reality like ours – if that makes sense. Also, the fact they included some other forms of powers in the show, and not only the ones we were used to, is very fresh as well.
This TV show was for me an amazing surprise. I loved everything about it, from the characters, to the storyline, and the references to other MCU movies and Marvel comics. I found back everything I like when watching a superheroes movie, without having to sit for 3 hours on a chair – it is hard for me to focus for so long. I highly recommend it if you like the MCU!
That’s it for my review peeps ! I hope you liked it. Have you watched WandaVision? Did you like it?
Have a nice and beautiful day,
