The first two episodes of WandaVision are now streaming on Disney+, marking the official launch of the ambitious Phase 4 slate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series is poised to become the MCU's most unique project due to its sitcom-based approach . So far, the strategy is working, as evidenced by a plethora of positive reviews from fans and critics .
Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany both made their triumphant return to the MCU as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, but they find themselves in an unusual setting since the pair are living a domestic life in the suburbs. Inspired by numerous sitcoms spanning several decades of television , WandaVision will follow the couple as they try to “fit in” within this newfound setup.
However, as the series progress, WandaVision will slowly transform into the MCU spectacle that fans know and love. It remains to be seen how the MCU series will do that, and it will be interesting to witness how it unfolds in the coming weeks.
Now, a fellow MCU veteran shares his excitement towards the highly-talked-about premiere of the inaugural MCU show.
To celebrate the release of WandaVision on Disney+, Mark Ruffalo showed his support for Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany by sharing several behind-the-scenes images of the pair from Avengers: Infinity War while also congratulating the two MCU veterans for their small-screen debut.

It’s always good to see whenever another MCU star like Ruffalo expresses excitement towards the success of their peers for their latest project. The debut of WandaVision is a momentous occasion for Marvel Studios since this will be the first foray of the studio into the realm of the small screen, and it's refreshing to see the support of other MCU veterans.
Interestingly, this isn't the first time that other MCU stars joined the promotion for WandaVision . In the virtual launch party of the series, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anthony Mackie, and Tom Hiddleston participated in a quick chat with the rest of the cast of the Disney+ show, and this essentially added more hype to WandaVision 's debut on the streamer.
After an uneventful 2020, it's nice to witness the return of the MCU, and it's safe to say that more actors will be active once again to promote the massive slate of the franchise this year.
