The first reviews for WandaVision are very, very positive
The reviews are in
WandaVision, the first of the long-awaited Disney+ Marvel shows, arrives next week, and the first reviews are in.
And things look very good for Marvel fans.
2020 was the first year in a decade where we didn't get any proper Marvel movies or TV shows (give or take the last season of Agents of SHIELD), and WandaVision will be the first MCU instalment in 18 months. So no pressure then.
The review embargos are now up, and the good news is that the show is going down well.
"The show is truly unlike anything the MCU has put out before," said ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis, with Collider's Steven Weintraub calling it a big swing for the MCU.
Kevin Polowy of Yahoo called it the "most ambitious (also weirdest) things Marvel’s ever done."
Check out the early reviews here:
I saw three episodes of WandaVision and I am hooked. They really go for it.
This has to be one of the most ambitious (also weirdest) things Marvel’s ever done, and this is the studio that had 300 superheroes in their last movie.

How #WandaVision approaches what we think is normal and what isn’t makes it an incredibly fun watch just three episodes in. I am impressed at how much it offers fans waiting for MCU content while still showing restraint.

#WandaVision is truly unlike anything the MCU has put out before. I can’t emphasize that enough.
It is a blast to watch. It is so committed to the sitcom structure of story telling that it feels like a bold risk - but it pays off and builds a mystery.
It is awesome. pic.twitter.com/NbGBsGLfmc

Also, after heaving seen the first 3 episodes, I only have a hint of what’s really going on and am so excited to see where this thing is going.

WandaVision is everything I wanted it to be and more. It is not a parody or snarky take on classic sitcoms. It’s the most respectful, sincere celebration of that art form that I’ve seen.... ever?

#WandaVision is nothing short of BRILLIANT. EASILY the MCU's boldest, most original & innovative venture thus far. The true genius comes from Jac Schaeffer's smart, sharp, witty, script & Bettany & Olsen's electric performances. I had the biggest smile on my face the whole time. pic.twitter.com/exu8m5Dtp9
