First Reactions to Marvel’s Disney+ Series

A new dawn for the MCU begins!


After a year without a Marvel movie, WandaVision is imminent. The Disney+ original series is the first TV show produced by Marvel Studios, the studio responsible for carefully crafting the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen over the last decade. And with WandaVision set to premiere on Disney+ on Friday, January 15th, the first reactions to the show’s first few episodes have arrived online courtesy of critics and press that were given early access.

WandaVision takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision. For those wondering how Vision is still alive given that he was very, very not-alive in Avengers: Endgame, well Wanda may have those questions too.

Marvel has kept a pretty tight lid on plot specifics except to say that Wanda and Vision are living a quiet suburban life in the town of Westview when they begin to suspect things are not as they seem. WandaVision will pay homage to iconic television shows throughout history, as director Matt Shakman (who helmed every episode) crafts specific episodes as if they were made in certain time periods. So we’ll see Wanda and Vision as a married couple in a 1950s I Love Lucy-esque setting, as well as homages to shows like The Brady Bunch, Full House, and even The Office.

This is the beginning of a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one that will play out on the small screen and the big screen simultaneously. In contrast to past Marvel shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Daredevil, these new shows are being produced by Kevin Feige himself and their storylines have been planned out right alongside the overarching storyline that will play out in movies like Eternals, Black Widow, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Check out what everyone had to say about seeing the first three episodes of WandaVision below. The series premieres exclusively on Disney+ on January 15 with its first two episodes. From there, WandaVision will air one new episode a week before wrapping its season with nine episodes total.
