While we're still abiding by our promise to Randall Park (Agent Jimmy Woo) and Kat Dennings (Dr. Darcy Lewis) to chill on spoilers for a little while longer, it's no mystery that Disney+ and Marvel Studios' Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany-starring WandaVision not only celebrated but deconstructed the sitcom format. And then there are the sitcom pedigrees of those on the show, including director Matt Shakman's 43 episodes on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But perhaps there's no bigger connection to sitcom lore than the one Olsen has as sister to Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, who shared the role of Michelle Tanner on the popular sitcom Full House.
Now, the star of Full House and the upcoming Disney+ series Big Shot John Stamos has posted a flashback of a young Olsen on the sitcom set in honor of the success of WandaVision. "One day she's a little girl wandering the set, and next thing you know, she's taking over a whole town, mindcontrolling the citizens to play out her favorite TV Sitcoms," Stamos wrote in the caption accompanying a picture of Stamos, Stamos's hair, and Olsen. "They grow up so fast… Wanda had a vision we'd both be on [Disney+]."
