Marvel has a whole lot of movies and TV shows in store for Phase IV of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Among those TV shows is the upcoming Disney+ series "WandaVision." The trailer for WandaVision is unlike any other show that Marvel has done in the past. It pays homage to a lot of classic sitcoms like "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" and "The Brady Bunch." It piques quite a lot of interest but the question is, what is it about? With all the mystery surrounding the Scarlet Witch and Vision series, here's what we do know. The Disney+ exclusive is set to release in December 2020. Both Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen will reprise their roles as the Vision and Wanda Maximoff. They'll also be accompanied by a few other returning characters as well as ones that will be making first appearances. Kat Dennings is back as Darcy Lewis from Thor as well as Randall Park who plays Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp. Then you have Teyonah Parris who'll be making her debut in the MCU as Monica Rambeau. The series first image release tells us everything we need to know about the story so far. On the surface, it looks like an ordinary, cheerful sitcom snapshot but it hides a lot of hints that lead to apprehension too. Aside from the subject material that we have so far, it's also interesting to see which of the comics they took inspiration from in making the series. With that, let's take a look at the comics that could have influenced the upcoming Vision and Scarlet Witch series!
Everyone's excited to see the continuation of the Vision and Scarlet Witch's story on Disney+ but it isn't all butterflies and rainbows, no siree! Fans have to remember that Wanda wasn't left in the best situation after Endgame. Plus, we know what happens when she reaches her breaking point. In the Avengers Disassembled storyline, they faced challenges through a series of attacks that really tested their mettle. The attacks resulted in the deaths of Jack of Hearts, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, and the Vision which was later on revealed to be caused by Wanda herself.
"House of M" features one of Wanda's biggest and most devastating moments in her lifetime. The actual storyline involves a great deal of Marvel characters that most likely won't appear on WandaVision. Nevertheless, it's the initial premise of the series that could define the entire show. Following a complete mental breakdown by Wanda, the Avengers, and the X-Men find themselves in a completely different reality. It turns out that it was created by Wanda. With the ability to warp and create realities, the sky is the limit for how they could approach the possibilities for the upcoming series.
Tom King and Gabriel H. Walta's "The Vision" limited series is a good source of material for this upcoming series. The story features the former Avenger creating a wife and two kids living a suburban life in Washinton, D.C. However, things get pretty dark when the desire to be human takes a toll on half of the Vision family which was the reason for their deaths. WandaVision could try to adapt this theme with Wanda magically creating children in place of the Vision family.
In "West Coast Avengers #51," Wanda was driven over the edge. The loss of her husband due to his new emotionless form along with the dark truth about her children being revealed was the apparent cause. With her new evil persona, she joined forces with her father Magneto to fight against the Avengers where she cruelly tortured her former teammates. Later on, it was revealed that she had been possessed by Immortus who was a future version of the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror.
