We finally have a premiere date for WandaVision – which will be the first Marvel show that hits Disney+. Because of this, we’re getting more information and it looks like we’re going to be in for a great show! In a new interview with Paul Bettany, who plays Vision; Bettany revealed:
“I think it’s going to make you think about the MCU in a whole brand new way but I do think that it’s absolutely a part of that universe. As each episode unfolds, the audience will be able to peel back layer upon layer until this rather beautiful puzzle box written by Jac Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman and shot by [cinematographer] Jess Hall will be revealed to everybody and it will make sense. All of the bonkers stuff will be about something.”
Bettany continued to reveal that WandaVision pays homage to every decade of television:
“It’s ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and all of it. We end up in the MCU, in the real world.”
“If you think about it, what Kevin Feige has done is like a grand TV experiment anyway. It’s sequels and spin-offs, in an episodic formula and spin-off formula, like you’ve had in television forever, just done on a grand scale in film. So, moving it to TV, I think they made a really smart decision, as an homage to lots of different eras and genres of the American centuries’ TV. The difference is this, we had an awful lot of money but we had to make six hours, rather than two and a half, or whatever it was. Seven hours or eight hours, but a lot of hours. At the same amount of money that we would usually have to make two and a half hours. They did some very clever things, like we shot the first episode in two days, in front of a live studio audience.”
