It's the penultimate episode of the series and we spent most of it through flashbacks. Not saying that's a bad thing--we definitely learned a lot--but really it just feels like it's teasing us, giving a few answers but raising even more questions in anticipation of the finale. So let's talk about all that we've learned!
Some of the big questions that people have asked about WandaVision have been, who is the villain? Is there actually a villain? Has Wanda gone completely off the deep end and is a threat to reality? Is Hayward--and therefore SWORD--up to something? Is Agnes up to something? Well, at least one of these questions gets answered this episode!
Things are escalating quickly in WandaVision, although there are still some major questions left unanswered. That's about all I can think of saying before getting to spoilers, so let's dive right in!
So, uh, you may have noticed that the internet kind of lost its mind about this episode. Something happened that either could change the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its implications, or the showrunners are fucking with us. Either way, there's a lot to unpack here, so let's dive right in.
We interrupt this program of WandaVision to talk about "We Interrupt This Program," the episode that answers a BUNCH of questions we had after watching the first three episodes, while presenting whole new ones. There's a lot that happened in this half hour, so let's jump right in!
Another week means another episode of WandaVision, now in color! That's not just a joke; that's also the title, "Now in Color." The uncomfortable strangeness of the show continues, now with a 1970's The Brady Bunch aesthetic (and a theme song very reminiscent of The Partridge Family). When last we saw our couple, Wanda was suddenly pregnant. Months away from giving birth, right? Well... not quite.
Happy Saturday! The first two episodes of WandaVision dropped yesterday, so here we are! If you don't know what that is, buckle up! It's a new entry for the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) from Disney+. Sure, there were the Defenders on Netflix and Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on actual television, but those shows had minimal (if any) interaction with the films because they were basically run by a separate department. It was a whole thing. But the Disney+ shows not only star characters from the movies, but they--supposedly--will have lasting effects that lead into future movies and/or shows. But that's getting ahead of ourselves.
Don’t you love it when a sequel comes out and has practically no cast or crew in common with the original? I don’t! That’s how we get shit like American Psycho II: All American Girl, where a small child kills Patrick Bateman at the very beginning and the rest of the movie is Ms. Mila Kunis killing anyone in the way of her becoming Mr. William Shatner’s teaching assistant! Weird non-sequitur, right? We’ll come back to that…
Mr. Zack Snyder is… interesting. The visionary behind the new DC Cinematic Universe (at least until the reboot it), he’s an incredibly polarizing figure. It also doesn’t help that I really don’t like Batman Vee Superman Colon Dawn of Justice, I thought Justice League was a mess, and I still don’t believe that the impending Snyder Cut of Justice League will be any kind of improvement. But I don’t want my opinions on the man tainting my thoughts on Sucker Punch! There are enough minor quibbles I have with the movie that do that already.
