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.
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.
It is known that “Earth616” is trying to keep track of when events in the MCU timeline ocurs. Likewise it is for WandaVision, which is still under discussion amongst some fans. So far, there are only theories that the events itself initializes shortly, up to year, after the events of Avengers: Endgame. So according to the timeline of MCU, the initial events probably lands in 2023-2024 MT (McuTime).
According to Collider, WandaVision will be paying homage to virtually every decade of TV sitcoms, but what this really means to the “occuring time” is still unknown.
Inverse is also theorizes the possibilities that WandaVision is taking inspiration from House of M.
