Marvel Studios surprised everyone when they unveiled the first trailer for the much-anticipated WandaVision series. New footage from the trailer showcased the alternate sitcom-reality that the show will explore while also teasing an intriguing dynamic for Wanda and Vision.
Along with the trailer reveal, a brand new poster was also released, teasing the inner conflict that Wanda will endure throughout the series. Not only that, Disney confirmed that WandaVision will be the first offering of Marvel Studios on Disney+, giving the show a December release window. This development also confirmed that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will premiere next year instead of in 2020.
As expected, fans took to social media to share their thoughts and feedback about the WandaVision trailer, and The Direct has compiled some of the amusing reactions.
ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis never fails to share meme-worthy reactions, and this one is a good example:
It appears that fans are loving the nod of WandaVision to the comic-accurate costumes of the titular characters:

Ms. Marvel showrunner Bisha Ali declared that WandaVision is "going to be incredible" while also teasing the whispers that she heard about the show that will surprise fans even more:

It's clear that MCU fans are reacting positively to the release of the WandaVision trailer, especially after months of hiatus from Marvel Studios promotion. While the new trailer offered more questions than answers, it's a safe bet that MCU diehards will dive into speculation theory to make sense of what was released.
Marvel Studios is known for taking risks, and WandaVision is a prime example of that. The sitcom trope of the Disney+ series seems to be fresh way of incorporating a narrative, and it will be interesting to see how Wanda will evolve as a character throughout WandaVision.
WandaVision has been confirmed to premiere on Disney+ this December, and this new trailer proved that the wait will be a worthwhile one.
