The first two episodes of the long-awaited ‘WandaVision’ series premiered today (15) on the Disney + streaming platform.
And bringing a light, comedic atmosphere inspired by the popular North American sitcoms of the 50s / 60s, the first few episodes may seem like a far cry from Marvel’s usual approach to its productions.
But according to star Paul Bettany, this “distortion” of the genre in “WandaVision” is more than intentional and is tied to some unexpected twists and turns that will occur in subsequent episodes.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the interpreter of Visão commented on this light atmosphere, making it very clear that it won’t last forever:
“Yes, at the start it was really [aliviante], but it would be a very boring TV series if it continued like this. What you’re going to start to realize is that it’s not some arbitrary or cute decision to define this story in these comedies. What’s wonderful about the comfort level of these comedies is that you have a seemingly intractable problem. But when the couple unites, the problem becomes eminently soluble. Unfortunately, real life is not quite like that and cannot stay that way forever ”.
Production started with 95% approval on the Rotten Tomatoes. Of the 82 opinions published, 78 are positive and 4 negative. The average score was 8.09 / 10.
According to the general consensus, “WandaVision is a wonderfully bizarre and surprisingly daring step for the MCU for small screens – and a perfect showcase for Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.”
Check out the top reviews:
“Either way, ‘WandaVision’ is the weirdest entry in the MCU to date, and a significant artistic step in its narrative.” Adam Graham, Detroit News.
“I can’t wait to find out which direction the show will take. But it will obviously take time to get there. – Bill Goodykoontz, Republic of Arizona
“Once WandaVision starts recycling the same content in every episode, it becomes hard to ignore that the main point of the program is playing with the format, instead of moving its story forward.” Roxana Hadadi – RogerEbert.com
“No matter how much people say that ‘WandaVision’ is different from anything the company has done before, for better or for worse, it’s more or less the same.” – Ben Travers, indieWire
“Strangely enough, going back in time, WandaVision has created a new and different television.” – Wenlei Ma, News.com.au
“So eerily different from what we expect from Marvel, that it can serve as a gateway for people who have firmly resisted the superhero genre so far.” – Jim Slotek, Original Cin.
