Avengers stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, have all been talking up WandaVision as the weirdest, "oddest," most avant-garde and "fucking bonkers" entry into the MCU. The first photo -- a black-and-white sitcom image of Wanda and Vision -- definitely made that clear.
And now the cast and crew seem to be finished filming -- and they had a suitably fun but left-field wrap party by playing mini golf. Why not?
Here's what WandaVision crew member Taylor Grabowsky posted on Instagram, and be sure to swipe over to see all four of his photos from the wrap party:
There are photos of Paul Bettany spreading around social media from the wrap party, but I haven't seen any of Elizabeth Olsen yet. You'll notice the wrap was in Atlanta, which has become MCU home base. Filming for WandaVision started in early November at Pinewood Atlanta Studios and it just wrapped at the end of February/start of March 2020.
According to Marvel, WandaVision is directed by Matt Shakman, with Jac Schaeffer as head writer, and here's the official synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
The Disney+ Super Bowl promo with Wanda spanning decades let fans know this would NOT be your typical show. It's going to mess with our minds, while also honoring the Marvel Comics stories for Wanda and Vision.
WandaVision also stars Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, the now older daughter of Maria Rambeau from Captain Marvel; plus Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, returning from the first two Thor movies; Randall Park as Jimmy Woo, returning from Ant-Man and the Wasp; and -- I just love this -- Kathryn Hahn as a nosy neighbor.
Did Tom Holland manage to squeeze in an appearance, since he said he was keen? He only shared his interest recently, so I'm not sure if there was enough time. I love that he doesn't understand quite what's going on with the show either, but he's excited about it. Same, Spidey.
WandaVision is the second Marvel Studios series premiering on Disney+. First, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres in August 2020. Then WandaVision, which reportedly has six episodes, premieres in December 2020. Recent updates suggest Loki, What If...?, Hawkeye, and Ms. Marvel will all premiere in 2021. Moon Knight and She-Hulk are expected to debut later, so there's plenty of time for those casting rumors to keep churning.
