Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a state of flux due to the global pandemic, forcing Marvel Studios to reassemble their current slate of projects. This development has made WandaVision the inaugural MCU series on Disney+, a title that was originally helmed by The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Plot details of WandaVision are still being kept under wraps, but previous reports suggest that the Disney+ series will dive into alternate reality territory. This was further amplified by the show's first teaser trailer, highlighting the sitcom-based setting that Wanda and Vision will both encounter.
Given that, WandaVision is poised to give fans an unlikely superhero adventure, and a new set of official stills may offer some clues on how the narrative will play out.
Entertainment Weekly shared a new batch of official stills from Marvel Studios' WandaVision, showcasing the core cast of characters from the upcoming Disney+ series.
The first image shows off Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff alongside Paul Bettany's Vision inside the sitcom-based reality of the show.
The second image features the MCU couple in an unusual sleeping arrangement, further adding more questions than answers about the current predicament of the heroes.
Meanwhile, another image from the report provides an intriguing look at one of the scenes from WandaVision.
The next image that was revealed highlights Kathryn Hann's mysterious character, potentially teasing her dynamic with both Wanda and Vision.
Another still from WandaVision confirms Wanda's pregnancy will be further explored in the show.
The last WandaVision still highlights Wanda's confused reaction to an unknown circumstance from the show, seemingly hinting that even the MCU hero is not aware of her current situation.
The images that were released strongly hint that a good chunk of WandaVision will take place in the sitcom-based reality that Wanda potentially created in-universe. The black and white color palette along with the characters wearing period costumes presents an opportunity for WandaVision to not only explore the classic sitcoms in the past, but also provide to an avenue to dive into the relationship of Wanda and Vision in an unusual way.
One of the images ultimately confirmed that Wanda will be pregnant at one point during the show, fueling speculations that Young Avengers members Wiccan and Speed could soon make their MCU debut down the line. However, given that the image takes place in the sitcom-based reality, there's a chance that Wanda's pregnancy will be erased.
It's all but confirmed that WandaVision will partly explore the multiverse due to the show's connection to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This is on top of the news that the Disney+ series will introduce S.W.O.R.D., a sentient organization that deals with otherwordly threats.
With so many moving parts, WandaVision has the potential to change the landscape of the MCU moving forward.
