We’ve gone a whole year without a Marvel movie. In fact, this is the longest gap between any Marvel movies. Superhero movies and comics are some of my favorite pieces of fiction. I love the powersets, the discussions of morality and camaraderie around found families. I especially love superheroes when they are at home or off-duty. Think Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye series or the party scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So I am really excited to watch the upcoming WandaVision miniseries coming to Disney+ today! Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, and Vision begin to suspect things are not as they seem with their ideal suburban life. Before you stream, catch up on the comics that inspired WandaVision and rewatch the Marvel movies that have led up to the miniseries. Don’t have a Disney+ subscription? Check out one of our Roku Ultras, which includes a Disney+ subscription.

House of M

Following the destruction of the Avengers, a group of super-heroes comes together to decide what to do about the Scarlet Witch. Over the years, her mental instability and subsequent lack of control over the immense reality-manipulating power she wields have put herself, those closest to her, and the general public in imminent danger. This group of heroes decides that she is too dangerous to live and that something must be done before reality itself is unmade by her madness.

The Vision

Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family? So he heads back to the beginning—to the laboratory where Ultron created him as a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his given destiny and imagined that he could be more—that he could be a man. There, he builds them. A wife, Virginia. Teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition—or is that obsession?—the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold The Visions!

If you want to catch up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that cover Wanda and Vision’s relationship, start with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which acts as an introduction to both characters. Next, watch Captain America: Civil War. Civil War deals with the direct fallout from Age of Ultron and finds Wanda and Vision on opposing sides in a battle over oversight and accountability. Finally, watch Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame to see the Avengers go toe-to-toe with the Mad Titan Thanos as he attempts to collect all of the infinity stones including the mind stone—the source of Vision’s powers.
