With two episodes currently out there burning up viewers streaming screens and dumping fuel on their dumpster fires of speculation, Disney+ and Marvel Studios' Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen-starring WandaVision has found a very familiar yet very cool way to celebrate the series' love for the history of television- in particular, family sitcoms over the years. What makes the Matt Shakman (Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)-directed series special is that the celebration is done out of love and appreciation for the television genre without ever feeling to mock or make fun of it- never any "punching down" and it made all of the difference. So with that in mind, the streaming service and studio have released two new key art poster- but instead of focusing on characters, they're focusing on a look at the series as seen through vintage-style posters for television sets that also some interesting wording for what exactly a new TV can do for you.
Before you deep-dive into the reality-altering world of WandaVision, here's a chance to catch up on our leads' MCU backstories. Marvel Studios: Legends showcases the characters that you've come to know over the years and revisit some of their key moments, the focus of the first installments are Wanda and Vision:
"Wanda Maximoff': Wanda Maximoff made her debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a powerful adversary of The Avengers, only to become an even more powerful ally. Wanda found strength in herself and in her extraordinary relationship with one highly unique individual, Vision. Marvel Studios: Legends explores Wanda's story as she grapples with cruel hardships and loss, a chaotic power that she strives to control, and shifting loyalties from those she trusts most.
"Vision": Born into the world in Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision chooses to fight on the side of humanity, though he himself is an artificial form of life. Marvel Studios: Legends follows Vision on his quest to understand humans more fully, evolving to be more like them, as he explores a romantic relationship with Wanda Maximoff in Captain America: Civil War. All of this leads to his final moments, as he makes the ultimate sacrifice for mankind, leaving those he loved to an uncertain future.
WandaVision marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series 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.
