WandaVision has been a true highlight of what is hopefully the f’ing tail end of quarantine. I’ve been watching all the interviews with the stars trying to find an angle to cover but there’s not much except Paul Bettany saying he couldn’t eat banana bread if he wanted to fit in his Vision suit. I really liked Kathryn Hahn’s interview with Seth Meyers, and Elizabeth Olsen was a delight on The Tonight Show. Fallon had her look at WandaVision memes and she was laughing the whole time. (I’m sure Teyonah Parris has already seen most of those memes!) I found Elizabeth endearing when she said that she never thinks her shows are going to be successful. She’s on the most watched series!
Everyone is talking about the fabulous FallonVision skit she did where she played actresses from different decades promoting her films. I’m embedding that below. Elizabeth told Jimmy that the Marvel hair and makeup people helped her with her look on their off day from filming Doctor Strange 2 in London. She also said that WandaVision was “a complete tee-up” for her character in Doctor Strange. As I’ve mentioned a few times I’m not that knowledgeable about the Marvel universe but WandaVision has sucked me in and now I’m invested. It’s the perfect show to bring in new fans and get us to interested in the characters. My son, who likes superhero movies but only sees them once, just watched all of WandaVision because his friends have been hyping it. He’s been sending me memes and asking me about it.
The final episode of WandaVision dropped at 3 in the morning EST. I’m scared to spend too much time on Twitter today because I’m saving it to watch tonight with friends. I don’t mind minor spoilers but I don’t want the ending ruined. Marvel and Disney have issued a PSA with stars Randall Park (Jimmy Woo) and Kat Dennings (Marcy Lewis) urging people not to spoil the ending.
I like how the transmission glitches out when they’re supposed to be telling plot points. There are so many people who haven’t watched the ending yet and we don’t want it to be spoiled! I’m going to go one further and say that people shouldn’t be spoiling it at least for the next week. My son was telling me yesterday that he knew WandaVision spoilers due to social media before he even watched it.
Do you remember how Endgame was getting spoiled by everyone? This feels like it could be similar but thankfully I don’t know yet.
If you reveal spoilers in the comments you will feel my wrath!

This show is FANTASTIC. It started with a slow burn and last week’s episode absolutely blew my mind. It’s anchored by two sublime performances from Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn; seriously, give them all the Emmys. I’m really excited to see the MCU utilize the weekly show format on Disney+ so well because it has really allowed us to explore the depths of Wanda’s character in a way that was all-too-often glossed over in the movies. Cannot recommend this show enough!
Watching it now!
No spoilers but there is a mid credits scene and an end credits scene.
I saw it. I loved it.
But then again, I love all things Marvel, lol
I think I’m going to do a Marvel Marathon this weekend now!
I was a little disappointed in last week’s episode after a really awesome start to the series — I felt like it told us a lot of what we already knew/basically just served as a way to tell us mutants might be part of the MCU now, and Agatha’s motivation was…meh! I’m hoping the finale finishes strong, because I’ve mostly really adored this show. I’ve always liked Elizabeth Olsen and I’m kind of in love with her now.
I think it may have been a way to provide Wanda’s backstory in for all those people who haven’t seen the other Marvel movies the character is in
I started getting up early on Fridays and watching it while I rode my exercise bike so I wouldn’t get spoiled and then doing a rewatch that night with pizza for anything I missed the first go round.
I thought the finale was amazing & like most of the episodes I couldn’t stop sobbing. This show has been a gift. So cathartic and really has helped me cope & process all the loss this last year
I cannot wait to watch this!!! Love Wanda vision and the humanity that Olsen gives to the character.
Woke up at 6 am (unintentionally) and decided to watch the episode while eating a slow breakfast before work. SO WORTH IT! Loves the series, I will rewatch it entirely in a couple of days.
I’m not really into Marvel but love this show. I’m 2 episodes behind so need to catch up before all is unleashed.
Same. I’ve seen a handful of marvel movies but I really like this. Elizabeth and Katherine are so good, all of the actors are.
Talk about a show that converges with the national zeitgeist–we’re all grieving the results of COVID, the results of four years under the thumb of a madman. Wanda’s the show we didn’t know we needed.
Well that, in no way, disappointed. What a phenomenal show!
I’m planning to watch the whole thing this weekend.
