After being delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic that hit the whole world, finally, WandaVision was also released on the Disney + Hotstar streaming platform starting on Friday (15/1) yesterday. This inaugural Marvel Studios series also opens the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
As the title suggests, the two main characters in the WandaVision series are Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Chase Olsen), aka Scarlet Witch, and Vision (Paul Bettany). The story of the two lovebirds of the Avengers, who have never appeared in the solo film, was made into a nine-episode series.
After fighting it out against Thanos in the film Avengers: Endgame (2019), in the WandaVision series, Wanda is said to have married Vision. Which is, in fact, an Android robot.
So far, Wanda himself is known as one of the most powerful members of the Avengers. Who has the abilities of magic, telepathy, and telekinesis. Who is able to move all kinds of materials with the power of his mind.
However, after marrying Vision in this series, Wanda must hide all of her strength. Because she must be a good housewife. Who daily takes care of the house and serves her husband.
Meanwhile, her husband, Vision, has to change his appearance: Between an ordinary human form and an Android robot. It seems that in this series, he is told to be a worker in an office dress. Who every day wears a suit and tie.
When interviewed by the media in an online press conference a few days ago, Paul Bettany stated that in this series, Vision will learn to become an ordinary human being. The Android figure has to work from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon to support his wife. That beautiful beauty.
Having to work in an office, Vision also had to change his appearance to look like an ordinary human. However, the superhero is still a superhero. Despite trying not to stand out, from time to time, Vision still uses his superpowers to keep his office work smooth.
In addition, according to Paul Bettany, even though his appearance has changed a little, in this series, the character Vision is, in fact, the same as the previous film version. Vision still carries the spirit of Jarvis, part Ultron, and part Tony Stark within him.
First introduced in the film Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), the background for Vision's appearance in this series is, in fact, still a question mark. Because, in truth, he is dead. To be precise, after the Mind Stone agate embedded in his forehead was gouged out by Thanos. In the past Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
Regarding this, Paul Bettany did not reveal clearly. According to him, watching the WandaVision series is like opening a puzzle box for the marriage of two superheroes one by one.
Every thing that happens in the WandaVision series has a reason. And, that reason, it could be, also influenced by other things. There are layers upon layers, said Paul Bettany. Without explaining any further.
Meanwhile, the figure of Wanda, according to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Olsen, in this series will be more in line with the original comic version. In previous Avengers films, Quicksilver's twin sisters are known as emotional and introverted girls (like you #eh #curcol).
According to Elizabeth Olsen, in this series, the figure of Wanda will be more lively and expressive. His personality will be much warmer. Set in a humorous and romantic sitcom.
Wanda's point of view and emotions will also be explored a lot. Every change of episode and era background in this series will affect his mental condition.

Btw, different from the superhero series in general, this WandaVision series carries the concept of a sitcom. A sitcom. Which is timed across the ages. Starting from the 1950s to the early 2000s.

To get the same feel as a classic sitcom, Marvel Studios shot in front of a real audience. One of them is to get background sound from the audience's laughter. Like in old school comedy series.
In fact, in order to make it look more real, like old television shows, Marvel Studios has created a scene for advertising fictional products in every episode of the WandaVision series. However, even so, the fictional products displayed are still related to the MCU.
The characteristics of the MCU itself will still appear in this romantic comedy series. The element of mystery and action will remain. Because, after all, this WandaVision series is a superhero series.
Like other superhero series, WandaVision also relies on visual effects to display the scenes. However, the visual effects are adjusted according to the era that represents each episode.
For example, the first two episodes of the WandaVision series are black and white. Because it is set in 1950 and 1960. So, the scenes in it use manual properties. Not CGI (computer-generated imagery).
According to Lizzie Olsen, WandaVision's reference in presenting these old school scenes is the classic sitcom Bewitched series. Which also tells of the life of a witch after marriage.
The supermanic girl who was born on February 16, 1989 added, references to old school sitcom actresses really helped her in showing another side of Wanda as a witch and a housewife.
According to Lizzie, the character Wanda is a combination of several classic sitcom stars. Like Mary Tyler Moore, who played Laura the Housewife in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961), and Elizabeth Montgomery, who played Samantha the Witch in Bewitched (1964).
Apart from observing sitcoms, Lizzie also studied the way women looked and behaved from each era. Starting from the 1950s to 2000s. Starting from clothes to their grooming.
On top of that, Lizzie also practices dialects typical of each sitcom era. Because, in fact, the WandaVision series does not really present the classic sitcom reality, but a unique reality with its own system.
Meanwhile, according to Paul Bettany, understanding the development of comedy from every era is quite a challenging process. In the early episodes of the WandaVision series, the audience will be treated to slapstick comedy. However, as the series' story progressed into the 1990s, the comedy style would change again.
What's also interesting, the actor who was born May 27, 1971 admitted, the appearance of the character he played in this series looked ridiculous. So there is no need to try hard to invite laughter.
In fact, initially, the husband of the beautiful actress Jennifer Connelly was confused when he read the scenario for the WandaVision series. Because how could the character Vision be that ridiculous?
However, Paul Bettany then tried to explore the true nature of Vision. Which is an Android robot. From there, he realized: That Vision, in fact, is a naive figure. So, it's very natural that he looks ridiculous in this series.
By the way, apart from Wanda and Vision as the main duumvirate characters, this series is also enlivened by a number of supporting figures. One of them, the most intriguing one, is Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris).
Yes, from the name, it was predictable that this girl was Maria Rambeau's child. Dear Carol Danvers. The one in the previous Captain Marvel film (2019) was still small.
In this WandaVision series, Monica is said to have grown up. However, his figure was still full of enigma. Perhaps, his appearance in this series was a warm up. Before he got a bigger portion in Captain Marvel 2 with Ms. Marvel.
Apart from Monica, there are two more old MCU characters who also appear in the WandaVision series. Namely: Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), assistant Jane Porter in Thor (2011), and Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), an FBI agent who previously appeared in the film Ant-Man (2015). The two are said to be working together to solve a mystery.
In addition to the three old MCU figures, there is a new supporting figure who also enlivens this series. Namely: Agnes (Kathryn Hahn). Which is told as a chatty neighbor who likes to nag and interfere with WandaVision household matters.
However, even though his character looks annoying, in truth, Agnes is a kind person. Its presence is expected to add to the cuteness of this series.
How? Are you ready to start a new era and a new story in the fourth phase of the MCU? The WandaVision series can be enjoyed every Friday on the Disney + Hotstar streaming platform. And, so far, the first two episodes that have been released yesterday have received positive responses from critics. Enjoy watching!
