Though the Disney+ series 'WandaVision' might be stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we still get to hear tantalizing bits of information about the show that makes the wait even more unbearable. Recently, Marvel Studios Visual Head of Development Andy Park released high-resolution concept art from the series, offering closer looks at Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and her human partner Vision (Paul Bettany). This was first released as a poster during Disney's D23 Expo in August and hinted that the show would have elements of a bizarre sitcom.
The last we saw of Vision was in 'Avengers: Infinity War', when Thanos ripped the Mind Stone out of his head, killing him instantly. Thanos snapped his fingers and half the world withered away into dust and ashes, including Wanda. In 'Avengers Endgame', the effects of the snap were reversed, and Wanda joined the grand battle to bring down Thanos.
"This show is going to be so good! What a fun show to work on," Park captioned his close up- art on Instagram. "This (closeup) keyframe I did early on in the preproduction of the show is VERY different from the more superhero-y stuff I do. It was actually one of the most challenging keyframes to get right. I did a lot of revisions before getting to this final."
Directed by Matt Shakman with showrunner Jac Schaeffer, the show is expected to begin as a familiar sitcom and before snowballing into "an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love," Bettany previously told Entertainment Weekly. "I think there’s been a real progression in the characters and the relationship and to actually be able to spend the time on that. Each time there’s more exciting stuff for us to do.… The scripts we are reading so far are so bonkers."
It's a love story between a robot and a mutant with reality powers----how much more bonkers could it get? The comic storylines itself were twisted and bizarre as they included phantom children, Vision dying several times, once killed by a possessed Wanda. And you thought that you faced complications in your relationship.
Well, we are in for a real rollercoaster ride. "He’s not human but he's more human than anyone, maybe. He always has the best, most wise things to say. He completely sees the world for what it is," Shakman told Variety."She's gone through so much trauma. She's lost her brother, she's an orphan, and all these different things have happened to her. I think we've all been quite taken by that union. It's the exploration of that bizarre, strange, completely right kind of love and it’s about watching them explore their relationship and growing it."
While it's uncertain when the show will resume production, fans are eagerly waiting to see the Disney+ series, as well, we never got closure to Vision's death in the film. *Sobs*
