    I don't mind artists referencing celebrity faces. It's better than everyone looking the same but with different hair and costumes

    I don't think Wanda should look like Liz Olsen though. I prefer Wanda to have her usual thick curly or wavy hair and have a more unique look. There's also the white washing issue that Marvel needs to fix badly. So that just perpetuates that decades long issue they've had.

    Would prefer them giving Wanda some actual content than this kind of surface level synergy though, people want her to be relevant again like MCU Wanda, not looking like her.

    I don't think WandaVision was "Emmy-bait", but I do think Disney campaigned hard for the awards. That says to ME that they wanted it to get some sort of recognition from the entertainment industry. I don't think having a typical superhero battle at the end of the series helped their case. I'm not saying I would be unhappy if the show got awards in the performance department, but I guess it just doesn't really matter to me that much? I trust Feige will give Wanda more things to do because of her popularity with the general public. At least that's my hope. I don't know anything about the Watchmen (comics or live-action adaptations), but I understand a television adaptation of the show won some Emmys. I did some research and I kinda understand why it did. The show brought to light a somewhat obscure event in American history: The Tulsa race massacre. Awards shows LOVE that kind of "socially timely and poignant" kind of thing. Especially when it's based on real life historical events. WandaVision I don't think "transcended" the superhero genre in a way that WOULD have gotten awards the way the Watchmen did. Or as some folks have said, WandaVision wasn't woke enough to win awards!!!

    My brother really enjoyed watching the Mare of Easttown. I think that show won more Emmys than its rivals? He hates superhero properties (but strangely loves the Walking Dead). He loved the ending of the series. I think a lot of people did (he's also a big fan of Kate Winslet ) WandaVision's ending was a little bit more divisive. So that might have hurt its chances of victory. I actually discovered that EVAN PETERS won an award for Mare of Easttown. Does that mean Feige will give Quicksilver a solo project because of it? I kinda doubt it. So I'm not sure if awards are a be all and end all for Wanda. I mean, I just think Wanda will be in lots of things in the future (I have no basis to support that theory, but I don't see why not).

    WandaVision did something to ME that surprised even yours truly. It got me interested in magic for the first time. I mean, I liked Strange's first movie because of the visuals (origin story felt too similar to Stark's for me), but I have been eagerly reading about fantasy in the months since the show ended. And be honest, you GOTTA be impressed with my increase in knowledge. I basically had a very feeble understanding of Marvel's mystical side up until a few months ago, but I feel MUCH more confident talking about it now. I largely have to thank WandaVision and MaximoffTrash for showing me how magic can be used in storytelling. I was really hoping Loki would enhance my fascination further, but there was hardly any magic at all in that show!!!

    Yeah I can believe Disney doing that. Since that gets them something that they can promote for a while. But they probably do that with a lot of their stuff. I can't imagine this being exclusive.

    I'm hoping she gets much more due to her popularity and not just some appearances. I'd love for the Midnight Sons rumor to be true.

    Some people like comics related stuff but not superheroes. Which is completely fine and indies are full of great stories without superheroes.

    I'm glad it started an interest in magic at least. That's' pretty cool.

    For me it started with an article that Slate published right after the end of WandaVision. It talked about the "boring" magical duels prevalent in fantasy movies/shows. And I thought, wow, a lot of them sure use a LOT of magical lightning, magical energy bolts, magical fireballs, and magical lasers. I think they visually look really cool, but I agree with author of that piece saying a little variety would be nice. Then after that I got interested in the rules of magic. Because if magic users can accomplish these God-like feats, I do think there should be some costs and limitations involved for using those powers:

    I kinda thought Loki would expand on magic a bit more after WandaVision, but I was surprised that didn't really happen. I'm wondering if MoM will be more like Loki or more like WandaVision. I'm leaning Loki because the writers are the same from Loki's series and Strange 2 IS called the "Multiverse" of Madness.
