WandaVision Official Trailer: What In Tarnation

Much like with Doom Patrol (which was just renewed for season 3), that show we all know and watch regularly, I’m an expert on WandaVision. So in watching the official WandaVision trailer this week, nothing came as a surprise. (That was convincing, right?)

What Is WandaVision Exactly?

Thank you for asking. As a certified WandaVision authority–I took the test and everything–I can tell you. And I’m definitely not reading off a card.

Sometime after the events of Endgame, Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living a charmed suburban life. Wait, Vision? Ain’t he dead? Uh, anyway, they’re married and enjoying an existence that looks straight outta the 1950s. However, they soon start to suspect, as we do, that there is something odd about their world.

The WandaVision Official Trailer Leans Into Its Weirdness

The trailer starts out in black-and-white, looking shades of I Love Lucy. We see the blessed union of Wanda and Vision, as the strains of the Platters classic “Twilight Time” play. Everything quickly shifts into color, though, taking us on a journey with Wanda and Vision throughout the decades. We also meet their friends and acquaintances, like Kathryn Hahn’s nosy neighbor character, as well as a couple that Debra Jo Rupp and Fred Melamed play. But things unravel. Vision finds out he’s dead, for example.

So what in the world is happening here? If I had to guess, then I’d say that post-Endgame Wanda is trying to conjure up her perfect world. As we’ve mentioned before about WandaVision coming to Disney+ in 2020, the general speculation is that the show will be a wild mix of two different comic stories, House of M and the 2016 Vision series. As one deals with Wanda reshaping her world and the other has Vision living a suburban family life, that doesn’t seem that far off. That certainly is the vibe from the trailer, albeit with a heavy sprinkling of just bonkers stuff. And as a certified weird person–I have many certifications and they all just say I can do what I want–I dig it.

But you watch it and tell us what you think.
