With the speculated tenth episode debunked by director Matt Shakman, fans only have one episode left of WandaVision. However, this last episode promises to be very action-packed, which even the trailers seem to indicate.
Thus far, Marvel Studios' first Disney+ show has been laden with references throughout, some just for fans but others of much larger significance. One of the biggest draws of the series has been the trio of Darcy Lewis, Jimmy Woo, and Monica Rambeau, all of whom originated from other films.
At this point, hardcore fans already know which films directly connect to WandaVision, but Marvel Studios has decided to give all fans alike a definitive list.
SUGGESTED VIEWING FOR WANDAVISION
Disney+, via the official WandaVision Twitter account, released a watch list for the Marvel show in anticipation of the finale:
The watch list reads:
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Captain America: Civil War
- Thor & Thor: The Dark World (Meet Darcy Lewis)
- Avengers: Infinity War
- Avengers: Endgame
- Ant-Man and the Wasp (Catch up with Jimmy Woo!)
- Captain Marvel (Flashback to the 90s with Monica!)
- Marvel Studios' Legends: Wanda Maximoff & Vision
- WandaVision — Episode 1-8
- WandaVision — Finale (OMG!!)

In the tweet, it wasn't noted if this order is of any importance aside from WandaVision and its finale being last.
Elizabeth Olsen believed that Wanda Maximoff "has a tremendous amount of guilt” as she secluded herself from the world after the finale of 'WandaVision.'
Kevin Feige explained that they had to cut Doctor Strange from the WandaVision finale because "it would have taken away from Wanda," revealing that they "didn't want the end of the show to be commoditized to go to the next movie."
Kevin Feige confirmed that a deal was finalized between Benedict Cumberbatch and Marvel to appear in the final episode of 'WandaVision.'
WATCH LISTS FOR OTHER DISNEY+ SHOWS
The ordering listed for this proposed marathon leading up to WandaVision is a tad odd, considering the Ant-Man sequel was placed not only after Infinity War but Endgame as well. This is definitely not in chronological order, so maybe the movies are listed in order of importance to the show itself, which would explain Age of Ultron and Civil War being the first two on the list.
Although, Thor and The Dark World following right after is a bit confusing unless Marvel Studios really believes that audiences should be more aware of who Darcy is than how Vision actually died in Infinity War. So, it doesn't seem like the exact ordering of this list has any huge significance.
It'd be cool if Marvel Studios continues this trend and releases a watch list for every one of their Disney+ shows before their finales. It'd also be interesting to see what they believe fans should rewatch. For shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, these marathon lists are sure to get a lot longer as time goes on and the catalog for the MCU grows.
