WandaVision can be considered a take on a love story by Marvel. Like the company always interconnects stories within their universe, the finale of this show too left certain chapters open that will eventually open in future. Disney+ shows are always built on such building blocks.
With WandaVision, the streaming company has taken creative risks while giving a profound take on love and grief. They were certainly successful in creating an experience for the viewer. The writers were able to play in the grey area and did not completely take the road of ‘too good to be true’ hero story line. They left the viewers with a sense of moral ambiguity thus making the show intriguing.
The makers have also incorporated many pop-culture and comic-book references. For instance there is the Halloween versions of the costumes, to characters popping up or the very clever “The Wizard of Oz” homage in the end. The series has a bittersweet quality and left the audience more to anticipate.
The director Matt Shakman and writer Jac Schaeffer have delivered a formidable accomplishment overall. They have successfully launched Marvel into the streaming space. The series has opened a vast array of possibilities giving the audience much to look out for in the coming seasons too.
As the character of Wanda says goodbye to Vision by affirming him, ‘he was a memory made real,’ same way the series too would linger for a good long time and much more can be expected from the Disney+ and Marvel’s grand plans together.
