For weeks now, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been flocking to Disney+ every Friday to check out new episodes of WandaVision. The show has managed to thrill and delight audiences for the most part and, as a result, it’s become must-see TV. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and WandaVision only has three episodes left, as of this writing. The show will soon give way to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but it now seems fans can now look forward to another program that will air between the two shows.
Marvel Studios’ Assembled, a new documentary series of specials, has been formally announced by the studio, via its Twitter account. The first installment, ASSEMBLED: The Making of WandaVision, is set to premiere on March 12 -- the week between WandaVision’s finale and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s premiere. Check out the announcement down below:
With this, Marvel will be taking a major page out of Star Wars’ playbook, as Lucasfilm developed a making-of docuseries for its own inaugural show, The Mandalorian. That show has been well received by fans, thanks to its in-depth look at the show’s complex production.
If the show is to follow the style of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, Assembled: The Making of WandaVision should feature interviews with various cast and crew members. One can imagine that a heavy emphasis will be placed on the sitcom side of the show, such as how the first episode was filmed in front of a live audience. Of course, we’ll probably get into some major story choices as well. So you may want to make sure you’re done with the show before watching because spoilers will likely be included.
Marvel Studios is finding some interesting ways to add supplemental TV content to Disney+. One of the first instances of this is Marvel Studios Legends, a series that explores the history of the MCU’s most notable characters. This served as a solid way for fans and casual viewers to prepare themselves for WandaVision.
And of course, what’s obviously the most exciting part of the Assembled announcement is that we’ll be able to expect a docu-special for each of Marvel’s new shows. With the MCU just now making waves in the television realm, it would make sense that Marvel Studios would want to give fans a peek behind the curtain.
Fans will no doubt be thrilled to learn they won’t be without MCU content in between WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s runs. And it’ll be interesting to find out just how much work went into bringing Marvel’s sitcom-esque superhero show to life.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres March 19 on Disney+ but, until then, continue to check out spellbinding new episodes of WandaVision.
