WandaVision Series Plot
Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living the ideal suburban life in the town of Westview, trying to conceal their powers. But as they begin to enter new decades and encounter television tropes, the couple suspects things are not as they seem.
WandaVision Trailer 2 Breakdown
In the beginning of this trailer we see Wanda putting on wedding rings and then she says “oh look I’m married to a man a human one”, and what she meant by “ a human one “ is that she changed Vision to look like a human because she wants them to fit in.
Also we see him in Infinity War as a human. There comes the sitcom reference , in the 50s shows they weren’t allowed to show couples sleeping in the same bed together but then in the 60s they were allowed to show couples sleeping in the same bed together and that’s how and when Wanda joins the twin beds that they have been sleeping on separately. Nice reference brooo!
Then in the other scene we see the year switching again from 60s to 70s which switch to color because before the 70s it was all black and white. And then we see Wanda is pregnant and now we know that this scene switches to the 70s we know she got pregnant in the 70s.
Then we see some neighbors, then we see Monica Rambo and she doesn’t know who she is and I think it’s probably because when you shift to a reality like in this where Monica is in Wanda’s world she loses her memory, I guess the longer you live in someone else’s world you start forgetting things? Something like that and that’s the reason she probably doesn’t remember who she is.
Then comes a scene where the outside world tries to reach Wanda and wake her up and come back to the actual reality, so like the S.W.O.R.D. tried to reach Wanda in many other ways like sending Agatha in but she gets lost in it so they sent Monica and they probably had other ways to communicate with her too.
So as we know that the infinity stones don’t exist in the MCU timeline so this is like where we see the mind stone getting probably shattered again and that Vision still has it because he got recreated into this fake world , he’s probably gonna get destroyed again or they’re gonna do a flashback where Thanos destroys him.
So we saw like 6 posters this week one from each decade ofcourse, so after the stone shattering scene we get to take a first look at the modern day Wanda Vision. And then at the end we see Wanda saying “ Well I think we handled that well “ .Very exciting looking forward to this!!
The Movie Culture Synopsis
With the official announcement of the series in April 2019 came confirmation that Olsen and Bettany would reprise their roles of Maximoff and Vision, respectively, in the series.
Teyonah Parris was announced to have been cast in the role of Monica Rambeau in July 2019; the character was introduced to the MCU as an eleven-year-old, played by Akira Akbar, in Captain Marvel, which was set in 1995.
The next month, Kat Dennings and Randall Park were set to reprise their respective MCU film roles as Darcy Lewis and Jimmy Woo, while Kathryn Hahn was also cast as Agnes.
Bettany said that some “very clever things” were done during filming, given the series had to make six hours of content on a budget similar to those for a two-and-a-half hour MCU film.
Feige added that as the series progresses through the sitcom decades, it would emulate “the talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style” of some modern sitcoms.
WandaVision is scheduled to debut on January 15, 2021 on Disney+, and will consist of six episodes.
