As the cast and crew for WandaVision gear up to start production on the Marvel Studios show in the coming weeks, one new fan video is giving fans a taste of what the show could look like. Edited by YouTuber Shama Shama, the Russian-language edit takes on the form of a 90s sitcom. Using clips from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and other movies and television shows, the video embodies the campiness of the sitcoms many of us grew up with. You can watch the full video — which also happens to include actual Marvel Russian voice dubbers Anna Kiseleva and Grigorii Perel — above.
The sitcom vibe comes from earlier comments where WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany teased press of the show's vibe, saying it closely resembled that of various sitcoms through the ages. “It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters,” Olsen teased.
“That’s where it starts,” Bettany added, “and then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”
In a more recent interview, Olsen revealed she loved the show's premise, going the length to call Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige a genius for his work putting the show together.
“I heard the premise and I understood it immediately. I was like, ‘Kevin Feige, you’re a genius,'" she added. “I have other questions that I probably still don’t have answers for right now, but I understood exactly what he wanted to do and that really excited me.”
Joining Olsen and Bettany in the series include Randall Park (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Kat Dennings (Thor: The Dark World), Kathryn Hahn (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), and Teyonah Parris as an adult Monica Rambeau.
Other upcoming Marvel Studios projects include Black Widow on May 1, 2020, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall 2020, The Eternals on November 6, 2020, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021, Spider-Man 3 on July 16, 2021, What If…? in Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021, and Black Panther 2 on May 6, 2022.
