Marvel has played with many genres, from spy thrillers to heists to high school comedy, but the upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision is threatening to blow other Marvel movies out of the water with its genre-bending and general wackiness. Though we know very little about the series centering around Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany‘s Vision, we have been frequently promised that this is one of the weirdest Marvel projects to come out of Phase 4. Now Olsen, Bettany, and their co-stars are teasing more WandaVision details about how truly “bonkers” this series will be.

The more time goes by, the more it seems like Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios (and The Walt Disney Company) won’t be coming to a new agreement to share the big screen rights to Spider-Man, leaving the webslinger outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland and Kevin Feige were very diplomatic in addressing the Spider-Man deal at The D23 Expo over the weekend, but some of the other stars of the MCU were asked about the situation too, resulting in varying answers, some sad yet hopeful and others downright perplexed and hilarious.

WandaVision is shaping up to be one of the most interesting titles of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4.

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (Josh Brolin) put Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) through the emotional wringer. The Mad Titan portals over to Wakanda and essentially forces Scarlet Witch to kill Vision, the man (android) she loves in order to ensure that Thanos doesn’t get the Mind Stone from his forehead. Thanos watches as she goes through an emotionally devastating decision…only to then spin back the clock and kill Vision anyway, taking the stone and ultimately completing his mission of destroying half of all life in the universe.
So when Wanda encounters Thanos again in Avengers: Endgame, she’s pissed. And in a recent interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirms something the film itself implies: that Scarlet Witch could have kicked Thanos’s purple ass all by herself if Thanos didn’t call his armies in for backup.

With each passing day, Facebook moves farther away from its long stint as the premiere social media platform. Millennials have taken to Instagram and Twitter while Gen Z-ers use Snapchat and apps most of us haven’t even heard of yet.
It’s no secret Facebook was throwing a Hail Mary when they announced the launch of Facebook Watch, the site’s very own video-on-demand service.
