What is WandaVision and who stars in it?

WandaVision is an American television miniseries created by Jac Schaeffer for the streaming service Disney+, based on Marvel Comics featuring the character

WandaVision‘s Randall Park and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero  teamed up for a brand new comedy series,

Blockbuster is, unsurprisingly, set in a store of the famous video rental chain and focusing on the people who work there. In fact, the series is going to be set in the final Blockbuster store in America, as the staff look for ways to save the brand from completely going under after the rise of mail-based rental and later online streaming services, both led by Netflix.

Ironically, this Blockbuster series is being created by and for… none other than Netflix!

The first image from the series sees our two leads happily at work, holding up the the generic Blockbuster DVD cases with the company’s official branding all over the picture. The posters also feature the slogan ‘The end of late fees’, which was one of the company’s attempts to combat the rise of Netflix.

Blockbuster does have one store still operating in America to this day. Based in Oregon, it has an estimated 4,000 regular customers and has dabbled in hosting sleepover events.

WandaVision is about Wanda and Vision living an idyllic suburban life after the events of Avengers: Endgame. But as their picture-perfect life — which eerily resembles decades of TV sitcoms — is soon disrupted when they realize not all is what they seem.

Other actors making up the ensemble cast include American Vandal‘s Tyler Alvarez, To All the Boys‘ Madeleine Arthur, Star Falls‘ Kamaia Fairburn, In the Heights‘ Olga Merediz, and Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s JB Smoove.

Randall Park played Jimmy Woo in WandaVision most famously, but he actually first played the role in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Will he reprise the role in the third film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?

“I don’t know,” he previously said.”I haven’t gotten the call. If I do get the call, I’m on it. If I don’t get the call, that’s fine too.”

One project he will be part of is upcoming live-action/CGI hybrid movie, Strays, from the director of the excellent Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.

Following WandaVision, Wanda Maximoff makes her MCU return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The last time we saw her, she was studying the ancient spell book the Darkhold in the middle of nowhere… after dissolving her sit-com-inspired false reality.

The newly-crowned Scarlet Witch has a big role to play in Multiverse of Madness, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed WandaVision sets up the movie. But what do you need to remember about the events of the show before Doctor Strange 2? We explain all…

To understand WandaVision, we have to go a little further back in the Marvel timeline. In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos kills Wanda’s android boyfriend Vision because he has an Infinity Stone lodged in his head. Because Vision’s not turned to dust like half the universe, when the Avengers bring everyone back in Avengers: Endgame, Vision remains dead. Wanda herself was turned to dust and returns in the final Avengers movie.

After coming back to life, Wanda goes to Westview, the town her and Vision were planning to grow old together in. Overcome with grief, she accidentally creates the Hex, a huge magical forcefield, that takes over Westview. Within the Hex, Wanda manifests a version of Vision, and the pair live happily married – even if the residents of Westview are all enslaved by this new reality, which just happens to be like a sitcom. Oh, and there’s another witch, Agatha Harkness, on the scene. Later, after going through various eras of sitcoms, Wanda uses magic to create two children for herself and Vision, Billy and Tommy Maximoff. She also manifests an alternate version of her brother, Quicksilver (who turns out to not be her brother after all).

Agatha eventually captures Wanda, and in a series of flashbacks, we learn that she always had her magical powers – it was previously believed, due to what we saw in Avengers: Age of Ultron, that Wanda’s powers were the result of HYDRA experiments with Loki’s staff, which contained the Mind Stone, the Infinity Stone that originally gave life to Vision (hence Wanda and Vision’s attraction). The evil Agatha, who’s in possession of the dark magic book the Darkhold, then tries to steal Wanda’s magic, believing her unworthy of her great power, but Wanda fights back.

Meanwhile, SWORD – an offshoot of SHIELD – has reconstructed a new version of Vision from the remains of his body. This version of the character, White Vision, doesn’t have normal Vision’s memories, and he arrives at Westview to kill Wanda. Wanda’s Vision battles White Vision, and the pair end up in a logical fight that ends when White Vision gains the memories of Wanda’s Vision. The new Vision flies away – and hasn’t been seen since.

In the fight with Agatha, Wanda comes into her power as the Scarlet Witch, a being of immense power who is destined to destroy the world – and is more powerful than even the Sorcerer Supreme. She defeats Agatha and traps her as her sit-com alter-ego Agnes.

Ultimately, Wanda decides to bring down the Hex and to free the people of Westview. This means sacrificing Vision and their children, too, as they are tethered to the Hex. Wanda then takes the Darkhold and flies to a cottage in the middle of nowhere.

At first, it looks like she’s simply living peacefully, but this turns out to be a façade – really, Wanda is inside studying the Darkhold. While reading it, she hears her children calling for her.

WandaVision season 1 is streaming on Disney+.
