At long last, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on the brink of its glorious return to mainstream media with Phase 4. This will kick off in less than 24 hours as Marvel Studios prepares for the imminent release of its first new property exclusively premiering on Disney+ , WandaVision .

The cast and crew behind this property have spoken for weeks on how this will be one of the MCU's most unique and ambitious endeavors, and the early reviews are confirming this to be true. The hype train is continuing to chug along at full speed before the show's first two episodes premiere, including one last entry that just arrived.


Marvel Studios released a new 45-second ad for WandaVision in anticipation for its official debut on Disney+ tomorrow.

New footage features star Elizabeth Olsen echoing the talk-to-camera style of 2010s mockumentary sitcoms like Modern Family.

The full video can be seen below:


While this ad brings a few seconds of footage already utilized, some exciting new confirmations come with the shots from WandaVision that debut for the first time!

The very beginning shows Wanda Maximoff talking directly to the camera in her living room saying “Yeah, I’m not sure what that’s about” after the wallpaper and furniture around her house all change. This confirms the influence of Modern Family on this show, which likely won’t come until later episodes since Modern Family ran from 2009 to 2020. The mockumentary became a hit on ABC over the last 11 years, and it should serve as a fantastic transition from the sitcom-based episodes to the final episodes that are more of a classic Marvel adventure.

There are quick shots of Kathryn Hahn’s Agnes and potentially Emma Caulfield's unidentified character as they look around them with suspicion, and it all teases an adventure where nothing is as it seems. We also hear the mysterious radio message to Wanda once again and see new action shots at the end, which is amping up the hype for this series to unseen levels.

It will all begin to unfold on January 15, 2021 when Disney+ premieres the first two episodes of WandaVision .
