Goofy sitcom homages and live studio audiences, EXACTLY what you expected from the first Marvel Studios streaming series!
WandaVision is an American television miniseries created by Jac Schaeffer for the streaming service Disney+, based on the Marvel Comics characters Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Vision. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it shares continuity with the films of the franchise, and takes place after the events of the film Avengers: Endgame (2019). WandaVision is produced by Marvel Studios, with Schaeffer serving as head writer and Matt Shakmandirecting.
Set three weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019),Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living an idyllic suburban life in the town of Westview, New Jersey, trying to conceal their true natures. As they begin to enter new decades and encounter television tropes, the couple suspects that things are not as they seem.
Nielsen Media Research, who measure the number of minutes watched by United States audiences on television sets, listed WandaVision as the sixth most watched original series across streaming services for the week of January 11–17, 2021, with 434 million minutes viewed.
The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 91% approval rating with an average rating of 7.93/10, based on 171 reviews. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Part loving homage to TV history, part off-kilter mystery, WandaVision is a wonderfully weird and strikingly bold step into the small screen for the MCU—and a perfect showcase for Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany”.
