    Yes, "toaster" is a reference to Vision and so is the watch in the second commercial, because one of the last things Vision said to her is "we are out of time." So they may be doubling up points from...

    Probably a mix of all the traumas she's been through.

    You'll notice that the first two fake commercials are based on terrible things that happened to her: the "Stark Toaster" is the Stark missile...

    This is one reason this isn’t House of M. That wasn’t Wanda’s story. Whatever role Wanda has in creating this new reality, the show is about her. Even the fake commercials are references to her MCU...

    Yeah, that's one thing I found really charming about it. The corniness was in things like the laughter on the soundtrack and the stock sitcom plots they chose ("dinner with the boss" and "talent...

    His original pitch is presented in the Young Avengers collected edition and he does say that Billy and Tommy would be Wanda and Vision's children if Marvel editorial approved it.

    The pitch there...

    I finally got to see the first two episodes and really enjoyed them. Of course I watched tons of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Bewitched."

    I don't know how much we can speculate here without...

    Well, SHIELD became detached from the MCU because Feige just wouldn't acknowledge it at all. The show tried to set up an Inhumans movie, which Feige canceled. He brought back Coulson but only in a...

    I also think it would have been better off being released all at once, because I worry people aren't going to come back if they think this is all going to be nothing but sitcom parodies.

    However,...

    That's gorgeous -- when did George draw that? Nothing better sums up what the Avengers are like when George Pérez is drawing them: the Wanda show (also starring the Avengers).

    Some of the other reviews I'm seeing are more mixed, mostly because the critics only got the first three episodes and the sitcom parodies seem to be the bulk of those episodes.

    I hope people like...

    When or where did Shakman say that?

    Edit: OK, I found it, it was in Total Film.

    Very reassuring to hear them say that they aren't doing the thing every Scarlet Witch fan was worried about.

    I was just replying to the discussion of why "WandaVision" has so many VFX shots.

    Every shot of Vision in his android form requires CGI -- Bettany wears the red makeup and costume but he also has those little motion-capture dots so the special effects people can make him look more...

    I'd be fine with it. They were probably at their most popular in the late '70s after they got married. There are plenty of stories left to tell about them together.

    Happy New Year to all Scarlet Witch fans. 2021 will almost certainly be better for her than 2020, but then it would pretty much have to be. (This also applies to the whole world.)

    I don't think many Wanda fans disliked her being a mutant. It's more a divide over what's better for her in the comics and in other media.

    Being a mutant often caused her to be portrayed as just...
