WandaVision Season 1 - Reaction and Discussion


Recommended Posts

Below you will find my impressions of the entire season of WandaVision.  Some spoilers will be discussed below.

Intro
First let me answer the question that I had at the beginning before watching. Is WandaVision actually worth watching? The answer is a resounding yes but in my opinion Disney marketed this series completely wrong.

The whole reason that people got into the comics in the first place was to see superheroes do superhero things. But Disney began promoting this as some kind of Dick Van dyke 60s era sitcom that's shot in black and white. This completely turned me off. In my mind I knew that there had to be a lot more to the show but nothing about the promotion convinced me to stick around to find out.

My Thoguhts
Fast forward to now I finally decided to dive in and check it out and WandaVision starts off exactly how it was advertised. And basically stays like that until the end of episode 3/ start of episode 4 and then it finally starts moving like a show based on superheroes. 

By the last two episodes I was very very interested to see what was going to happen next. They do a really great job of leveling up Wanda this season and the background work they did on her character was very well done. If there weren't a lot of Wanda fans before, I guarantee you she is gonna have a big fan base very soon. Especially when the new movies get underway. It also seems as if Disney may have created a potential new female hero based on the events of WandaVision.

If her powers somehow stay with her it will be interesting to see how they develop. Having Wanda turn into the Scarlet Witch so soon really messes with the power structure. At this point you can make a good argument that her and captain marvel are the most powerful heroes we know about. Once again Vision gets the short end of the stick but I suspect that we will have some more surprises related to the mind stone since Loki season 1 has basically opened up Pandora's box and basically allowed Marvel free range to do whatever they want with all the characters.

Summary
WandaVision is good. I wished I watched it a lot earlier. My only complaint is that the first 3 episodes are extremely boring. They should have found a way to make these episodes more in line with what fans would expect from superhero related content. If you're a Marvel fan you don't wan to miss this show. And don't worry you don't need to watch The Falcon and Winter Soldier or Loki first to see it.

What did you think of Wandavision season 1?
