We’ve known that ‘WandaVision’ was going to be a bit strange starting off but the cast is sharing that things are going to get “bonkers” before the series runs its course. With the new shows coming to Disney+ being created by Marvel Studios and tied directly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you have to wonder what this could mean for future films. We do know that ‘WandaVision’ is supposed to be a direct lead into ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ for Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff and a Scarlet Witch having a breakdown much like in the comics could evolve into what we see here.
On the show itself, Olsen shared, “It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters.” Paul Bettany, who plays Vision in the franchise, added, “That’s where it starts and then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”
One of the fun teases by Olsen is that:
“Just from starting from Age of Ultron, the things that I’ve loved about the Scarlet Witch are things we’re getting to explore now. And I’m very nervous and excited about it in all the fun ways. But I think we finally get to go down some roads in comic books that are favorites and explore, and it’s going to be a wild ride.”
Many of Scarlet Witch’s iconic comic book moments or even power levels have only been hinted at which means we could see a lot of evolution of her character. We’ve already seen hints of an accurate comic costume for her in the preview poster which could be another teaser that things are going in that direction. As Wanda was shown as being able to briefly hold back a powered-up Thanos with her power while at the same time destroying the stone in Vision’s head, it should come as no surprise that she is a force to be reckoned with and could likely be the cause of Vision’s return in the upcoming film.
However, things are going to get weird, or “bonkers” at Bettany puts it:
“I think there’s been a real progression in the characters and the relationship and to actually be able to spend the time on that. Each time there’s more exciting stuff for us to do.… The scripts we are reading so far are so bonkers.”
Bettany also feels that “people are going to be really blown away by it” and one can only hope that Vision’s return in the series isn’t just a construct of Wanda’s mind. As an actor who has already shared that he feels the show will be “avant-garde and weird” really makes you wonder what kind of an experience Marvel Studios has in store for us!
Are you looking forward to ‘WandaVision’? Do you feel that “bonkers” is a good description of the details for the show that we’ve already seen? Will Vision actually return in the series or will this be a break from reality for the Scarlet Witch? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
