When WandaVision premiered last week, it came perfectly packaged in its classic sitcom wrappings, right down to the black-and-white filming techniques and slapstick bravado of stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. With the exception of one thing: episode titles. The first two episodes of WandaVision were curiously missing episode titles, perhaps not an unusual feature for a limited series, but certainly out of step with the classic sitcoms that the Disney+ Marvel series was paying homage to. But nearly a week after WandaVision premiered, Disney+ has released the official titles for the first two episodes of WandaVision.

(Welcome to Great Moments in MCU History, where we fondly recall great little bits that made us fall in love with the MCU.)
Two episodes of WandaVision are out now on Disney+, with seven more on the way before Marvel Studios’ first proper foray into television wraps up. But even two episodes in, it’s safe to say Wanda and Vision’s life of domestic bliss has issues. For one, it appears to be some kind of fantasy based around sitcom episodes. For another, one of the participants had his forehead crushed by Thanos and is supposed to be very dead. And to add a third thing, neither Wanda nor Vision seem to be themselves on the show. Vision was never meant to slave away in a generic office and the Sokovian Wanda Maximoff is a far cry from an American-as-Apple-Pie housewife.
But Wanda and Vision’s courtship has always been weird. This is true in the comics (leading to extremely depressing rabbit holes for both of them), but it is also true in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the following clip from Captain America: Civil War reminds us…

Marvel debuted the first two episodes of their new Disney+ series WandaVision this past weekend. The series finds Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living a literal sitcom marriage in the style of classic TV shows like The Dick Van Dyke Show and Bewitched. Director Matt Shakman perfectly captured the style of those vintage programs, right down to the practical visual effects and the black and white cinematography, and he got some guidance from the perfect resource.
Matt Shakman previously mentioned that he met with Dick Van Dyke to get a better vibe of the making of classic television so many decades ago. Now he’s opened up a little bit more about the meeting, which took place at Club 33, the exclusive private club located within Disneyland above the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Not only is it nice to hear that Dick Van Dyke was kind and helpful, but he seems to know little to nothing about the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read More »
