During Sunday night's Emmy awards, Marvel Studios shared the trailer for WandaVision, and it's since been confirmed that it will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series to debut on Disney+ (after The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was seemingly pushed into 2021).
As the synopsis explains, the series is a blend of classic television and the MCU in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision - two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives - begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. That's a tad vague, but a closer look at both the trailer itself, and past reveals/rumours, helps shed a lot more light on what fans can expect from the TV show.
Marvel Studios is looking to make a huge small screen impact with WandaVision, and it's impossible not to be intrigued after watching what proved to be a revealing, mind-bending new look at the show.
With that in mind, this feature takes a deep dive into WandaVision to bring you everything you need to know about the series, including the characters, comic book inspiration, how it sets up future stories, and a whole lot more. It's clearly going to be something special, but what you may not realise is how much of a game-changer it has the potential to be...
10. "Vision Quest" Serves As Inspiration For The Series
Marvel Studios has obviously borrowed a lot of ideas from the comic books over the years, so the news that WandaVision will take inspiration from John Byrne's classic West Coast Avengers story arc "Vision Quest" didn't come as a huge surprise.
That saw the Vision go missing, with Wanda later learning that he was taken, stripped down, and wiped of all his memories. That led to the introduction of a greyed out Vision, an idea it's clear Marvel Studios has considered in the past thanks to mysterious Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art.
"It looks like one of the subplots in the real world centres on Wanda going Humpty Dumpty and trying to reassemble Vision after his parts have been scattered around the world," it's said, something that makes sense considering the fact the first time the Vision was destroyed in Avengers: Infinity War, he was shattered into pieces.
However, after the Mad Titan reversed time, he tore the Mind Stone from the hero's head.
That means the Vision's body is still out there, though he could have easily been taken apart. His memories, meanwhile, are likely to have gone after the trauma he went through (more on that later).
