Stream Your Heart Out: “WandaVision”

by Kyle Harper

The events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) adaptation of “Avengers: Endgame” left the movie world in a state of confusion and left fans wondering: “What happens next?” As it turns out, Marvel would create a sitcom with a witch and a dead robot. Go figure.

“WandaVision” is a television mini-series currently on Disney Plus. The first season of the show debuted on Jan. 15, and has released weekly episodes ever since. According to IMDb, “WandaVision” has a rating of 8.2/10.

The series centers around Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen), who is also known as the Avenger, Scarlet Witch. 

After the defeat of Thanos, Maximoff moves to the town of Westview, New Jersey with her robotic husband, Vision (Paul Bettany). In Westview, Maximoff and Vision build their family, bond with their neighbors, and begin a plethora of new adventures.

As the show progresses, the audience learns that the happy town may have an incredibly dark secret looming.

Trouble begins to arise in the neighborhood. Strange, colored objects begin to enter the black and grey world, references to a troubled past arise in a town of ignorance, and Vision begins to question the very reality he lives in.

WandaVision is truly a masterpiece of a show. When one mystery ends, another begins and intensifies the entire plot. The show really showcases the inner emotions of Maximoff, and the plights that she goes through.

Additionally, the show has some quippy puns and epic crossovers that make it must watch.

I recommend this series not only for fans of the MCU, but also those who just like a good mystery to solve. Viewers will have a good time finding all the easter eggs that bind the plot together, which makes it easy to rewatch. Give this show a watch next time you are scrolling through Disney Plus!
