WandaVision: Marvel TV Series on Disney+

Marvel and Disney keep rolling out the shows as WandaVision was announced as part of the lineup for Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ available some time this year. As of this writing, the monthly subscription fee for Disney+ is at a competitive price of $5.99-$6.99 tentatively. Lower than Netflix, Hulu and even DC Universe where Warner Bros. plan to release new DC Comics Animated and Live Action television shows. It is safe to say that the future of television may be in streaming apps! Even I have to admit that I watch most if not all my television shows on Hulu and when the mood strikes I skim through Netflix’s catalog of films and shows to keep me occupied.
Now this is where we get to the Marvel shows that will be extensions from the MCU, shows like Loki, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Hawkeye and WandaVision. WandaVision is a bit more interesting only because at the end of Endgame Vision played by Paul Bettany is not resurrected from the dead and is confirmed that his time and story has come to an end in the prime-timeline of the MCU. The big question is how and when will this new series take place if Vision is dead. First, Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed she will be part of the show and even went as far as saying the series would take place in the 1950’s. How this ties into the story, we don’t know but let’s keep digging. Paul Bettany will also be reprising his role as Vision for the series. Now let’s figure out how this story can take place. Within Avengers: Endgame, it is well established that there are multiple branches of the timeline created due to the Avengers time traveling back in time to gather the Infinity Stones. The first one is created in 2012 when Loki escapes the events of the first Avengers film in New York with the Tesseract. This timeline would still have the events leading up to Avengers: Age of Ultron and the creation of Vision give or take a few small changes of course. This timeline would also still have a Thanos that does not travel to the future and lives on. One hiccup with this timeline is that Captain America with his knowledge of the future pretends to be a part HYDRA and takes Loki’s scepter so this could probably prevent Wanda from ever getting powers to begin with. The second timeline branch created is in 2014 when Thanos travels to the future and dies, also by this time we know that Wanda and her brother Pietro have gained their powers so again the events that lead up to Age of Ultron are still on the table. Wanda meets Vision and they fall in love. Of all the shows, WandaVision is the one we see having to explain itself a bit more to get fans on board for the plot/story they want to tell or the genre they want to move forward with to set the tone for the show.
