The real reason Kevin Feige agreed to create WandaVision
In an interview with Variety, Feige explained why he found himself drawn to “WandaVision,” citing the awe-inspiring nature of the titular characters and the talented actors who portrayed them. As he explained, “The answer for the show is that Wanda and Vision are great comic book characters that we don’t scratch the surface of in the movies, played by such spectacular actors, and we didn’t do Just scratching the surface of what they can do. Focusing on those actors playing those characters was the main reason for wanting to do “WandaVision.”
During the same interview, he added that his love for sitcoms as a child influenced the way he approached storytelling on the show. After spotting 2016’s comedy miniseries “The Vision,” which featured suburban imagery, Feige knew he and the team at Marvel Studios, including showrunner Jac Shaeffer and director Matt Shakman, could really embrace a campy and dynamic structure – one that would eventually pull away to reveal hidden depths. Noting that a long series allowed for innovative narrative opportunities, Feige said: “[I]I felt good doing something that could only be done for television.”
After the series’ acclaimed release, critics and fans wondered if a 2nd season might be in the works, especially in light of its commercial and critical success. However, Olsen quickly put those rumors to rest, pointing out, “It’s definitely a limited series,” as quoted by People. Of course, as any MCU viewer knows, anything can happen when it comes to the Multiverse.
