If we come to see it this way, Paul Bettany has been a part of the Avengers and the MCU as long as Robert Downey Jr. has, with the exception of ‘Endgame’. First, as the voice of Tony Stark’s AI J.A.R.V.I.S since as long as the first ‘Iron Man’ that kicked off the MCU, till ‘Infinity War’, where towards the end, the robotic being powered by the mind stone was skull-crushed by Thanos, draining him of all life. His aide and love interest, Wanda Maximoff, the scarlet witch was first introduced in a post-credits scene for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, having a full-blown role in ‘Age of Ultron’, followed by ‘Civil War’ and then leading a supposedly “normal” life with Vision when the events of ‘Infinity War’ are put into motion. The two ended up being separated by fate (and a painful to watch death) but fans of the duo have reason to rejoice since they will now have centre stage, headlining their own limited series that is going to take their story forward in the MCU after the events of ‘Endgame’.
Now there remain some major unresolved plot elements, the major one being the return of Vision, that sure set up the arrival of ‘WandaVision’ nicely, also being one of the many reasons why this is going to be one hotly anticipated series. Infact, yet again, I have to commend Marvel’s marketing here. Despite announcing a number of projects in the works already, virtually all of them are failure proof.
The MCU is an established brand of its own now, and anything even remotely connected to the vast shared universe that only saw a new zenith with ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is bound to be watched by people. In that, all the TV series that Marvel is introducing right now are more like extended post-credits scenes leading into Phase IV movies, as with WandaVision leading to an increased role for Wanda in ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’, while these characters get an expansion on their personal stories too, as with the Tier 1 Avengers. Win-win-win, as Michael Scott would say. So, without further delay, here is everything that we currently know of the ‘WandaVision’ TV series. Read on.
WandaVision Plot: What is it About?
Just as I mentioned above, one of the major questions that the TV series raises and also seeks to answer is how Vision would return to life after clearly being killed by Thanos before he snapped away half the universe. The official announcement for ‘WandaVision’ brought along the news of the series being set after the events of ‘Endgame’, so we can rule the prequel route out for now.
Although, I do believe that the series would be spending some time with the duo in Edinburgh where Wanda and Vision were before they were attacked by two of the Black Order, Proxima Midnight and Corvius Glaive, in search of the mind stone. In particular, how the two developed an emotional relationship together after the events of ‘Civil War’. Other than that, the most likely avenue in my opinion that could lead to Vision being resurrected is the one that was explored in the conversation between Bruce Banner and Shuri in Wakanda, while they were trying to remove the mind stone from him while keeping him alive. It showed Shuri understanding Vision’s tech more than Banner, who was, in a slightly extended sense responsible for the creation of Vision himself. Shuri was shown as quite the bright mind herself, so I would not be surprised a bit if she and the advanced Wakandan tech at her disposal are the reasons Vision comes back.
