The 5 Most Interesting Moments In The New 'WandaVision' Trailer
Things are about to get freaky.
It's been a long, anxious wait for MCU fans. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe, most of the Marvel content on Disney's release schedule, including Black Widow, Falcon & The Winter Soldier, and The Eternals, has been delayed.
However, we've now had a piece of good news, with a Disney + 'Coming Soon' trailer confirming that WandaVision, set to debut in December, will still arrive on schedule. The 'Coming Soon' spot has now been followed by the series first full-trailer, aired during the broadcast of the Emmys.
WandaVision will focus on the characters of Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and The Vision, played by Paul Bettany. According to the official synopsis, the series, set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, will follow Wanda and Vision as they begin to realise something is amiss with their perfect suburban life.
Here are the most important, or interesting moments from the new Trailer.
1. Wanda and Vision's world is unstable
The trailer begins with Wanda and Vision in what looks like a black-and-white 50s sitcom world, apparently recently married and moving into their new neighbourhood. Soon after their arrival, the pair host a dinner with an older couple, played by Fred Melamed and That 70s Show star Debra Jo Rupp. The dinner is going nicely enough at first, until Rupp's character begins asking questions about how long they have been married, and where exactly they have moved from.. Questions neither Wanda or Vision can answer, which clearly unsettles them. Soon afterwards, the world shifts from black-and-white into colour, along with a change in era.
The moment is clearly meant to imply that the idyllic sitcom world in which Wanda and Vision currently exist isn't entirely real, or at least that it is easily altered. Whether it is Wanda herself or someone else making the alterations is unclear. However, in a brief shot later in the trailer, Wanda is seen making some minor changes around the house with her powers. Reality alteration does fall under the Scarlet Witch's skill set, however, it is an aspect that hasn't been deeply explored in the MCU thus far.
In the earlier WandaVision/Falcon & The Winter Soldier Superbowl teaser trailer, fans spotted a brief shot of a pregnant Wanda, as well as a pair of cots. This suggested that Wanda and Vision would have children in the series. In the new trailer, we officially see the couple's twin baby boys for the first time.
The babies are almost definitely Tommy and Billy, Vision and Wanda's children from the comics who, after a lot of magical complications and reincarnation, the twins grow up to become the superheroes Speed and Wiccan, founding members of the Young Avengers. At one point during production, WandaVision was filming at a High School, so we may get to see the twins as teenagers. Some fans hope this could be the first step towards seeing the Young Avengers in the MCU.
3. Classic costumes
Also going back to the Superbowl TV spot, we saw Wanda wearing a version of her classic Scarlet Witch costume from the comics. We get a slightly longer look at the classic costume in the new trailer, but that's not all. This time, Vision gets in on the fun as well, seen in a comic accurate version of his own costume.
Both classic outfits, rumoured to be worn in a Halloween episode, are very similar to the Vision And The Scarlet Witch comic, which heavily inspires WandaVision.
4. Agents of S.W.O.R.D?
At one point in the trailer, the adult version of Captain Marvel's Monica Rambeau (now played by Teyonah Parris), is apparently sent flying, surrounded by red energy, possibly being thrown out of the idyllic sitcom world. As she lands, she seems to be approached by agents, possibly working for S.W.O.R.D.
WandaVision is set to introduce S.W.O.R.D, aka the Sentient World Observation and Response Department. The organisation keeps track of extraterrestrial or otherworldly threats to Earth. Fans speculate that her expriences in Captain Marvel could have lead Monica to join S.W.O.R.D as an adult.
5. 'Agnes' is more than a nosy neighbour.
Apart from Wanda and Vision themselves, the most prominent figure in the trailer is Kathryn Hahn's character, Agnes. The cast list for the show lists Agnes simply as a nosy neighbour, but the latest trailer immediately proves she is much more than that. As the above image suggests, Agnes has at least some idea of what is really going on, as she knows that Vision is supposed to be dead. She is also the only character so far, aside from the lead couple, to be seen in more than one era.
Many fans suspect that 'Agnes' may actually be Agatha Harkness, a witch who becomes a mentor to Wanda in the comics. However, a few rumours suggest she may play a slightly more antagonistic role in WandaVision.
WandaVision is set to debut on Disney + in December 2020.
