              Marvel’s new original series, WandaVision, now streaming on Disney+ is a “next big step in the MCU. In episodes 4 and 5, multiple big things were revealed, which I think may change the future events of the MCU. I think the overall show is really great, and its use of sitcoms is really innovative”, says an eight grader when asked his opinion on the show. In this series, Wanda resurrects Vision, who died in the movie Infinity War when Thanos took the Mind stone from Vision, and creates her own reality. Wanda and Vision make new lives starting in the 50’s time period in WestView, New Jersey. Vision has a job in computational services and Wanda is a housewife. Over the episodes, the time period changes into the 60’s, then to the 70’s, and finally into the 80’s. Geraldine, an agent of S.W.O.R.D, who is later revealed as Monica Rambeau, trying to explore why there seemed to be a whole town missing in the middle of New Jersey, gets “sucked” into Wanda’s reality becoming one of the characters in her reality eventually becoming one of Wanda’s friends. Recently in the new episodes Wanda gives birth to two boys Tommy and Billy. When helping Wanda with childbirth, Monica accidentally gives her cover as someone who isn’t controlled by Wanda. Wanda banishes her from her reality “force field”. Tommy and Billy have the ability to age when they feel like doing so. Vision starts to wonder about the life he and Wanda call reality, when people seem unfazed about their true selves, when Timmy and Billy age in front of Agnes, a neighbor and good friend of Wanda and Vision. He learns that Wanda is controlling everything and everyone when clearing the mind of a coworker at work and seeing that he is in pain and missing his family. When confronted with the situation, Wanda gets angry at Vision and tries to explain that she does not control every little thing. In the middle of their argument someone knocks on the door. Wanda tries to explain that she didn’t expect that to happen. Finding it hard to believe Vision says that he wants to believe her but with everything happening it is hard to. Frustrated, Wanda opens the door only to find her late brother standing outside. Wanda is shocked as she sees that Pietro, who died in the battle with Ultron, is in front of her. In the most recent episode Billy and Tommy inherit their own powers, Tommy with the power of superspeed, like Pietro, and Billy with a power similar to Wandas. Ultimately, WandaVison has us all on the edge of our chairs waiting to find out what happens next. People are developing many theories about this show and how it might roll out. As new episodes come out and the plot thickens, the show WandaVision has rightfully earned a lot of attention and fans with just these few episodes.
