Review: Marvel’s WandaVision


Review:  Marvel's WandaVision

Kensye Gault, Staff Writer

On January 15, Disney+ premiered a new Marvel series, WandaVision. The show begins with Wanda Maximoff and Vision as a 1960’s suburban couple, a trope viewers will see throughout the episodes as the show parodies classic sitcoms. In episode one, we see Wanda and Vision struggle to conceal their powers from the neighbors, as well as Vision’s boss and his wife. So, very early on, viewers learn that Wanda and Vision are as clueless as the audience, in regards to their current condition. Later, the show switches to a 70’s Brady Bunch theme and transitions from black and white to technicolor. The show keeps fans interested by allowing them to see two Avengers in such a foreign environment and not exactly due to the humor, which ultimately falls flat at times. The sitcom trope may even be played out too long without enough hints towards the circumstances of Wanda and Vision’s condition. However, despite this, the show is maintaining a great fan base and viewers are anxiously awaiting the finale.
