In the last episode breakdown from New Rockstars, occuring dates is covered in a video section. According to our recent information at the MCU timeline, Spider-Man: Far From Home now have a more accurate year set. As we follow WandaVision Episode 4, Monica Rambeau is one of many that disappeared with Thanos first snap and now returning to real life again. Episode 4 also sums up the rest of the Endgame to the confirmed five years: Maria Rambeau died two years after Monica disappeared, three years later the blip occurs – which gives us the five years from Infinity War.
Information that is followed also tells us that WandaVision occurs three weeks after Endgame, which fits very well with Hulk’s unsnap and we will in this case land in october-november 2023. Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Parkers trip, then occurs summer 2024.
The Nick Fury post credits in Spider-Man: Far from home occurs eight months after Endgame.
Did hell break loose this time? Well, as mentioned before, we’ve spoken about when things may beaks loose for real. In episode 4, S.W.O.R.D is finally introduced – wishes that many viewers have spoken about have come true. At the MCU page, some gaps are now filled in.
What we first believed would be some kind of 1980’s episode, turned out to be a tinly jump between the spaces of the sitcom reality and the real reality, giving a quite exciting recap from the former episodes. Monica “Photon” Rambeau is also introduced, by being the first S.W.O.R.D agent getting sucked into Westview – who became Geraldine for a short period. The episode ends with what then happened to Rambeau – which has been shown in some of the official trailers.
In this episode we will finally meet Randall Park (Jimmy Woo in Ant Man) and Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis in the Thor movies) that are leading the outside operation. The promises for an accelerating action style series are now in progress. The hexagonal shape and the “Mephisto theory” that has been mentioned a while by both Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars shows up on Woo’s border. At the same screen capture at this page, Skrulls are also being brought up as a slight note in the left corner.
From Episode 4 we will also get introduced to the WandaVision’s sitcom cast, identified as…
There are also new breakdowns for this one (currently most of them from Emergency Awesome). The most recent are presented below. Some fans that – this far – seems to be quite newborn to Marvel and the MCU, that asked why the hell WandaVision was a sitcom, also finally got their stupidity confirmed.
During the last update of the MCU timeline, I’ve been trying to pre-set the upcoming decade-titling, out from what we’ve seen and read about the sitcom eras this far. With some help from articles where Paul Bettany reveals that WandaVision will be paying homage to virtually every decade of TV sitcoms: “It’s ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and all of it,” he said. “We end up in the MCU, in the real world.” there should be a last sitcom episode in the 2000-era at the 6th episode – since the first predicition of the old “WandaVision will be 6 episodes long“.
With this guessing game, the timeline at mcu.earth616.org has also been updated with the exciting information below. After episode 6, we should’ve kept up with the real MCU reality at 2023. As Marvel and the crew also already mentioned a “full MCU action series” there might be some kind of guarantee, that we at this point will be quite familiar with the prior “MCU style movies” again (for those who can’t stand the current format, and still don’t understand what Marvel means).
From todays date we have only three episodes left before episode 6. Since we already know that Geraldine mentioned Ultron killing Pietro, hell will probably break loose very soon when they realize that they are trapped in a world of Wanda. With “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” around the corner, I’d like – with carefulness – predict a handover to that series at some point of the last episodes of WandaVision too. So we, for sure, don’t have to wait until the last episode for this. It’s recommended to follow Emergency Awesome and New Rockstar, since they are deeply analyzing the episodes with predictions like above.
As usual, at calm saturday mornings, after the shock from another WandaVision Episode, we collect ourselves for a short while and going maintenance, to fill in some gaps of the MCU Timeline. Meanwhile, for you people – like us – wants more, there are WandaVision Episode 3 breakdowns available from Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars since yesterday. They are also embedded just below.
Today, we’ve added all of the episodes for Loki, MS Marvel, Hawkeye, What If…?, Secret Invasion and some other series – with all necessary imdb-links and eventual release datesm so it will be easier to follow them. Also, IMDB descriptions is on place for already released episodes.
There’s also a bigger cleanup with in the “status symbols” where both the D+ and TV-boxes has been removed from a few places. The TV status will now only be used when it’s not obvius. The old D+ status is deprecated and will only be added when the show is really streaming on Disney Plus.
Older series, especially the legacy Fox series has not yet been added. They are considered but, as they only are vaguely related (or not at all) to the MCU, they will be absent furthermore.
Our own page has been updated with this information too. Even though it won’t collide with the original MCU timeline, it is still a loss for the world of movies. Hopefully, not all theatrical releases 2021 will be moved further on and instead go PVOD.
I liked how WandaVision started. Like another weird season from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow but initially with a calmer pace. It’s a strong contrast compared to Avengers: Endgame, and I get a better feeling of the aftermath, while the show is going on. Without being to much of a spoilery, the S.W.O.R.D. logo also follows a few times on screen which makes this much more exciting. For those who has’nt followed Marvel frantically, this logo probably don’t say much. But for the other of us, this is a confirmation of that “new era” Marvel has spoken so much about.
As many of you probably hasn’t seen the episodes yet, we’ll stop our analysis here. But, below the images, we have added breakdowns of each episode for you to check, that has been analyzed by our two favorite Marvel channels, Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars.
A new TV-spot arrived to the less known (and owned by unknown) youtube channel “MARVEL Comics – Black Widow”. It’s not much, but we think it should at least be acknowledged! They also released some longer tv spots for WandaVision.
Since WandaVision is set for a double-header premiere next week (meaning, two episodes will be released instead of just one), we’ve also updated the MCU timeline with new release dates. The timeline is now also expanded with the full list of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier with IMDB references since they’ve been missing in the list. That said, the schedule is filled with series until the end of april and the followed by Black Widow. Morbius will be released between the series, but is currently not counted due to the circumstances (Sony and the fact that Morbius may only be vaguely related to the MCU).
Elisabeth Olsen is currently in London, supposed to film for Doctor Strange 2, but since the hospitals are overwhelmed due to COVID-19 (London is experiencing a second strict lockdown), they can’t go back to work which may mean there could be delays.
Jimmy Kimmel talks with her regarding fan theories and WandaVision. Unfortunately, Elisabeth, can’t tell much that isn’t already revealed – and the only thing we still surely know is that Wanda and Vision are living their sitcom dreams. They have all the american sitcoms, starting with the 1950’s a la Dick Van Dyke (which they also filmed in front of a live studio audience).
Questions like if Vision’s tie is a clue is unanswered and Elisabeth explains that even if the easter eggs – even if they were real, they’d go way above her head. She also denies the fact that WandaVision is built on the popular comic book House of M with the response: “Our prop guy Russel would be a very clever man if he put that in”. Which in fact can caused by the way easter eggs are being broadcast to the fans (except for the regular restrictions that disallows the actors to reveal information). So there are plenty standard denials amongst the fan theory questions. Emergency Awesome is breaking down this here.
The Jimmy Kimmel show also presents a first never-before-seen clip, from a 1960’s Bewitched episode (see below with the full video from Jimmy Kimmel) from the series. It is extracted from the Jimmy Kimmel show just below the youtube-clip.
