The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an intricately deliberate affair with a number of years of movies plotted out at any given second. That nice tuning clearly bought thrown off observe in 2020, since Black Widow meant to formally launch the MCU’s Part 4 (post-Infinity Saga) period, and as an alternative, that honor’s going to the first Disney+ collection, WandaVision. How all the things will all shake out and have an effect on the general timeline of flicks nonetheless stays to be seen, however for now, this new TV spot — and it’s actually, very nice to see Marvel TV spots once more, isn’t it? — formally indicators the “new era,” by actually titling itself as “Signal.”
The brand new period is Part 4, and put together for issues to get funky and peculiar and out of doors the traditional confines of superhero-framed actuality. That is alright, sure? Sequence director Matt Shakman informed SFX Journal that launching the part is “an honour” and “terrifying” and “surreal, like everything else.” Yep, the world’s extremely surreal (and terrifying) now.
In fact, we are going to ultimately see Black Widow (and The Eternals and Shang-Chi and so forth), however for now, the Disney+ collection is maintaining the MCU prepare going. As we’ve already seen, this restricted collection will give viewers 1950s-set sitcom vibes that really feel like an homage to The Dick Van Dyke Present, however inside the bigger story, the superhero lovers are trying to conjure up a picture-perfect house life. From the appears to be like of footage and trailers up to now, it certain appears to be like like actuality will begin to collapse, and we’ve seen hints about not solely Imaginative and prescient’s anatomy but in addition the couple’s child twins, which can or might not exist and should result in realizations that aren’t as fairly because the sitcom setup would have folks imagine. From the present’s synopsis:
The collection is a mix of traditional tv and the Marvel Cinematic Universe by which Wanda Maximoff and Imaginative and prescient — two super-powered beings dwelling idealized suburban lives — start to suspect that all the things just isn’t because it appears.
WandaVision will premiere on January 15.
