The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to include, as of this writing, 7 TV series on Disney+ in addition to the six currently announced films. The “Cinematic Universe” is officially more of a “mixed media universe.” Remember when part of the appeal of the films was that they made the impenetrable web of comic book continuity accessible again to new fans? That feels like it’s nearly over.
Anyway, the first of the Disney+ series to hit the service is going to be WandaVision, in which Scarlet Witch seems to be living out a 50s TV fantasy life with Vision. Only one issue: Vision is dead. So what is going on? Let’s take a look!
Well this looks delightfully weird!
In the comic books Scarlet Witch has the ability alter the fabric of reality, a level of power that she thus far hasn’t been granted (or at least hasn’t been explored) in the films yet. My guess is that due to her grief at losing Vision, she has created a new reality for them to live in. This, of course, will not end well.
We don’t know for sure what is going on, but this series is also supposed to tie directly into Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, in which she will play a key supporting role, so reality-warping does seem like a safe bet.
The six-episode series will debut on Disney+ sometime in December, and also has a pretty great poster. What do you all think? Are you excited?
