WandaVision gets scary near the end, and I start to wonder: will it live up to the hype? Week after week we have fantasized WandaVision, some episodes we like better than others, some have come with wild twists and crazy cliffs, but they have generally been high quality and entertaining all the way. So much so that all of them have made us furious when the credits roll! With only two episodes left, how much of a conclusion are we going to get, though? This thing is going to turn out to be a very entertaining, even more expensive, nine-episode prologue for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness….. Right?
Through WandaVision, we have hyped ourselves up as an audience. I owe it to myself, Monica Rambeau so much as mentioned a “space engineer”
But that’s not all about us. The show runs its own hype train when week after week gives the cast and crew big promises and peas, and compares a surprising como that they say has not happened yet with Luke Skywalker appearing in Mandalorianen. Paul Bettany doubled down on that in a later interview where he said that there are still some who come to the show that he has wanted to work with all his life.
So, naturally, we all start thinking … Ian McKellen brings in Magneto? Patrick Stewart brings in Professor X? Maybe it’s Hugh Jackman who appears as Wolverine or Tobey Maguire who turns into a frame like Spider-Man? Honestly, there are probably none of them, but they have all become super popular guesses because of all this hype. Now, if anything, many people will feel let down, regardless of their feelings about the show’s history.
Evan Peters joined the show as Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver. We know that this movie leads right into Doctor Strange i Multiverse of madness. They knew very well that when we brought in Evan Peters, the same actor who played Quicksilver in another movie universe, the conversation would be driven by speculation about the X-Men movie world that existed in a universe parallel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe … but after a couple episodes with a Pietro character who has the same live-action face as X-MenQuicksilver and it seems like nothing more than a wink and a nod without deep meaning. If that does not change (even with the slightest acknowledgment that it is more than a version of Pietro in the multiverse), it will be a strange decision that may also make fans question what was the true purpose of the show. cannon.
There are some things we absolutely can not fault WandaVision for, as if Mephisto never shows up. I’m pretty sure no one involved in the show has as much as said his name throughout the press tour. The closest we came to an appearance through seven episodes was a picture on a wall in a promo video where lead writer Jac Schaeffer talked about the show, and the same wall also had Wonder Man on it …
All the Easter eggs, whether we’re talking about the zillions of hexagons we constantly see, the references to Bova or Grim Reaper in opening credits, or Mr. Scratch is a possible inclusion of Nicholas Scratch from comics … they can turn out to be ONLY EASTER EGGS… becomes interesting to see how everything feels.
WandaVision has definitely not let us down yet.
The show has generally not been excellent. The performances are brilliant, the mystery has been exciting, and it can really shake the MCU as we know it before it ends … I just get ready to support shock as that end approaches … because I remember what happened when TAPT did not explicitly answer all the questions after spending the whole race building up mysteries … That said, TAPT is my favorite program of all time.
Do you think WandaVision going to offer a satisfactory conclusion? You will be frustrated if it has a massive rock trailer and eventually acts as a massive introduction for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with all the meaningful events that actually happen in the movie?
