Earlier today, we took a look at the new teaser that was released for Disney+'s WandaVision (more on that below) as well as four new character posters focusing on Paul Bettany's Vision, Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch, Teyonah Parris's Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn's Agnes- giving viewers a better sense of just how altered their realities have become. Now with the first offering for the streaming service from Marvel Studios set to premiere on January 15, it appears the reality-altering taking place in the series has found its way into our reality. Wanda and Vision are living the happy married life in almost-too-good-to-be-true Westview- in fact, you can pretty much remove the "almost" because as their "happily ever after" spirals along looking for some semblance of a "normal life," reality continues to become more and more unstable. How unstable? So unstable that it's even impacting the show's Instagram account- which finds itself spiraling just as much as Wanda and Vision will be in two weeks:

Now here's a look at the newest teaser for what Marvel Studios and Disney+ hope will be a "Visionary New Era" for the streaming service:
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.
Disney+'s WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, Fred Melamed as Arthur Heart, and Debra Jo Rupp as Mrs. Heart. Created by Jac Schaeffer with an opening episode written by Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman, the streaming service series is executive produced by Schaeffer and Kevin Feige with Marvel Studios producing.
As a way to get everyone up to speed with who's who and what's what in the MCU, Marvel Studios: Legends was created to showcase individual characters that viewers have come to know and over the years and revisit some of their key moments. Exclusively to Disney+ and set to premiere on January 8, the timing couldn't be better with the opening focus being on the stars of the upcoming WandaVision, as viewers look back on the roads both Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) traveled before crossing paths.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, Marvel Studios: Legends celebrates and codifies what has come before. Revisit the epic heroes, villains, and moments from across the MCU in preparation for the highly anticipated stories still to come. Each dynamic segment feeds directly into the upcoming series premiering on Disney+ — setting the stage for future events. Marvel Studios: Legends weaves together the many threads that constitute the unparalleled Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The first two episodes of Marvel Studios: Legends kicks off on January 8, 2021, on Disney+- now here's what viewers can expect as the spotlight shines on our WandaVision couple:
"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.
