Marvel has released the official trailer for its upcoming Disney+ series, WandaVision.
The trailer debuted at the 2020 Emmy and provides the latest visual tease for fans since the teaser from the Super Bowl. The trailer, which includes the filmmaking style of sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sees Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff and Vision. The couple finds themselves pleasantly living a normal suburban life, however when asked about the specifics of their relationship, they are at a loss of words. They then begin to think something about their life isn’t quite right, and the trailer places the two in seemingly different eras having kids and fighting antagonists.
Joining Olson and Bettany are Kat Dennings (reprising her role as Darcy Lewis from the Thor franchise), Kathryn Hahn, Teyonah Parris, and Randall Park (reprising his role as FBI Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp).
A release date was not revealed in the trailer, but the official Disney+ synopsis confirms the series is set to debut before the end of 2020.
