As we are still spending a lot of time indoors at home, Gerry Zink recommends a new show from Marvel Studios – the studio behind Endgame, the highest-grossing movie of all time. Zink is a 17-year-old Lakota comics aficionado. Here is his review of Wandavision.
Wandavision is the first TV show made by Marvel Studios post Endgame, and it’s the first in a long line of shows made exclusively for Disney Plus. It stars Scarlet Witch and Vision from the most recent Avengers movies.
It is the first time Marvel has veered into sitcom territory, with a little mix of alternate reality fiction and 1950s surrealism. The characters fit very well within the sitcom landscape, with many hilarious sketches and jokes. While the show is very funny, it also uses the audience’s broader knowledge of the Marvel universe to generate a decent amount of tension within the audience. It is impossible to say any more without spoiling, but WandaVision is a great watch for Friday nights on Disney Plus.
