WandaVision has been a constant series of surprises throughout its season (no word on if there will be another for this, or any Disney+ Marvel series), and the big revelations keep on coming.
WandaVision has been excellent at delivering a surprising, well-told story that keeps even a longtime hero geek like me guessing and being stunned.
Since the very surreal WandaVision started, we’ve been seeing some cracks in the idyllic life of Westview, New Jersey. Now those cracks are becoming more like gaping chasms.
Now, we start to see much stronger ties to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. “We Interrupt This Program” is aptly titled, as we see little of our titular heroes, and a great deal more of various supporting characters from throughout the MCU.
After an enjoyable seven seasons, it’s time to say goodbye to some old friends.
The beginning of Marvel’s Phase Four continues with the ongoing adventures of a mutant witch and her synthezoid husband who may or may not be some kind of ghost. The end of last episode moved us out of the black and white era in another time jump, and into the 70’s version of sitcoms, ala Brady Bunch or The Partridge Family.
The animated opening, very much in the style of both Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie, is crammed full of interesting little Easter Eggs.
The superhero genre is so wide you can tell almost any kind of story in it, and they take full advantage of that here. The various hints at more going on promise some interesting developments down the road.
Now that I’ve finally seen it, I don’t think it was anywhere near as bad as the rumors hinted.
It’s very near the end of the road for the Agents of SHIELD. After this, there’s a two hour special finale, and that’s it. So, a moment of silence for the passing of a show I’ve really enjoyed with some great characters.
