“Wanda Vision” gets crazier and crazier as the series progresses, with the latest episode plunging the town of West View into the 1980s. Earlier episodes ranged from the 1950s to the 1970s, with little touches of dark reality embedded in Wanda’s seemingly perfect world. The fourth episode crosses the boundaries of the series, leaving the sitcom town for the outside world, and follows the SWORD agents in their attempt to solve the mystery. The fourth episode also explains the presence of “Geraldine,” who fans were previously told was actually Monica Rambo, the daughter of Captain Marvel’s Maria Rambo, before the series aired. The episode begins right after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” where everyone reappeared after five years.
Monica returned to her mother’s hospital room and discovered that her mother had died three years ago, two years after Monica had disappeared.
“WandaVision” was the first official series to premiere on Disney+ as part of Phase 4 of Marvel Studios’ plans, which include several new movies and shows. Other Marvel series are expected to appear on the banner, including “Loki” and “Secret Invasion.” The series stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paula Bettany as “WandaVision,” Teyona Parris, Kat Dennings and Randall Park. West View residents include Debra Jo Rupp, Fred Melamed, Katherine Hahn, Jolene Purdy, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, David Lengel, David Payton and Emma Caulfield Ford.
Previously on WandaVision.
The fourth episode of WandaVision shows the strange interruptions to reality that Wanda experienced in the first three episodes, explaining the helicopter, the man in the suit, and the voice on the radio.
Answering these simple details raises more questions than it answers, such as why objects arriving at West View are transformed to fit the decade. Fans also get their first glimpse of the government agency SWORD, which serves as a stand-in for SHIELD. When Monica (Teyonah Parris) gets a job at West View, she teams up with Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), who was last seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Ant-Man and the Wasp). Another familiar face joining the team is Darcy (Kat Dennings), who was seen in the first two Thor films.
“WandaVision” allows fans to see the progress the two characters have made during their absence. This allows fans to see how far both have progressed in their professional ranks. Darcy quickly interprets the West View signal that allowed them to watch the sitcom on the old TV, and the agents of SWORD ask their questions about the not-so-dead “WandaVision.”
Each episode of “WandaVision” raises new questions and leads fans to theorize about what might really be behind the takeover of the West View sitcom. “WandaVision” is not afraid to make changes to Marvel’s usual format while making a truly original show. After Monica was evicted from Wanda Town, fans watched as Wanda changed from housewife to the town’s protector. Monica joins the SWORD team with Wu and Darcy, who help her devise a plan to send an 80s drone into town to communicate with Wanda. Everything goes according to plan until the vice president decides to shoot Wanda, causing Wanda to sneak through a wall and launch the drone at the feet of the SWORD agents.
The new Pietro for WandaVision.
Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) seems quite guilty as she makes it clear that she does not want intruders in town and that she is not afraid to defend herself. This behavior contrasts with her reaction when Vision (Paul Bettany) confronts her about what is really going on in West View and her role in it. Wanda claims that she has nothing to do with what is happening and really seems to have no idea of what is going on, which only raises more questions about whether Wanda is behind it. Vision finally begins to understand what is going on at West View when he receives a tip from his colleague Norm. The colleague gets Vision out of town long enough to tell him that “they” are holding her captive.
The most shocking surprise could also be called the biggest surprise of the fifth episode. In the middle of an argument between Wanda and Vision about the city, the doorbell rings and Wanda swears she had nothing to do with it. When she answers the phone, she is shocked to learn that her brother exists. Wanda’s brother, Pietro, was recently killed by Ultron, as Monica mentioned in an earlier episode. Only upon the shocking arrival does an even more shocking capture occur. Her brother is no longer played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, but by Evan Peters, who played a different version of the character in the X-Men movies.
After this shocking crossover, fans were in a state of shock, although no one expected this after Disney took control of the X-Men world.
Thanks to Darcy, it was immediately apparent that this was not the same Pietro, but rather an actual remake of Wanda’s brother with a brand new character. Darcy exclaimed upon seeing the newcomer that “they remake Wanda’s brother,” which officially makes him a hottie and creates a lot of excitement. Fans have speculated that this arrival could be the first glimpse of the multiverse that will be explored in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie. Marvel Studios has made it clear in its WandaVision announcements that the film will be given, but not necessary to see in sequence.
Randall Park talks about Jimmy Woo.
Jimmy Woo was an instant hit in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” and Randall Park brought charm and humor to his relationship with Ant-Man. It was great to see him move up in his profession in “WandaVision,” and now he’s charged with investigating this strange anomaly.
Park shared with TVLine that Wu has gotten better at his job and is more confident. The actor shared that the character is still sincere, serious and even vulnerable, his love for magic is definitely well entrenched even though he has climbed up the ladder. Randall Park went on to say in the interview that Wu and Darcy work so well together because they have great respect for each other and have one thing in common, they are both eccentric. Both characters have their own areas of expertise, and the actor explains why they are so well matched, saying that it is the dichotomy that makes them such a good match. Park helps explain why they are so different and yet so in sync.
ScreenRant reports that Marvel Studios is currently flirting with the idea of a Jimmy Woo split.
The call for a spin-off came on social media from fans who wanted to see Jimmy Woo in his own show. The show would follow him and Darcy as they investigate strange events following the West View anomaly. The series would have an atmosphere similar to the style of The X-Files. The presentation began with director Stephen Ford. Even actor Simu Liu said on social media that he is fully involved in the spin-off and has made himself available as a guest star. The actor will be seen in the next Marvel film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Kat Dennings let loose on the pitch in an interview with Extra, saying that she is fully behind the X-Files-like series. WandaVision presenter Jake Schaeffer told ScreenRant that Dennings and Park are both experienced actors and asked how talented they are.
The showrunner also talked about game styles and explained that Park liked the way his character would be handled, so they thought about this important aspect of the character and how Dennings could make it something fun.
