Review by C.J. Bunce
It’s a surprising and unique story in Phase IV of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s WandaVision, the almost hallucinogenic, time-tripping story of the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame through the eyes of Wanda Maximoff. Now fans have their first look inside the making of the series in Marvel’s WandaVision: The Official Marvel Studios Collector Special, a full color, hardcover, souvenir guide to the characters, creators, and development of the Disney+ series. It’s being released in three editions, one via newsstands, one via comic shops (add it to your pull list at Elite Comics now), and a hardcover version you can pick up here at Amazon and at brick and mortar bookstores (it’s currently an Amazon #1 Best Seller!). Enjoy a preview for borg readers below from Titan.
Beginning with a look back at the MCU movies featuring Wanda and Vision leading up to the Disney television series, the book then runs through the series’ supporting characters from the movies: Darcy Lewis from Thor, Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel, Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and The Wasp, and Pietro Maximoff from Avengers: Age of Ultron (or is he from X-Men: Days of Future Past?). The book is a guide to the story told in the series, while also stepping outside the Marvel universe to discuss production highlights. Interviews with actors include Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, Teyonah Parris, and Kat Dennings, and key creators detail the work of production designer Mark Worthington and head writer Jac Schaeffer. Other sections feature the role of Agatha in the story, and the creative ideas behind the retro TV commercials that defined the series.
