After months of waiting, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally returns later this month with WandaVision on Disney Plus. The show promises to be one of the wildest, weirdest, wackiest shows on television, and it's going to change the way we see the central duo, Scarlet Witch and Vision. 

“I think it will make everybody look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a whole new way,” Paul Bettany, who plays Vision, tells Total Film in the new issue. “Marvel has always taken big swings... But we’re a really big swing. There are more VFX shots in WandaVision than we had in Endgame. That’s a big ask.”

“Law and Order this is not,” laughs director Matt Shakman while discussing the sheer scope of the project. “This was not six months of shooting people walking down the same hallway. Kevin [Feige] was really clear from the beginning that this show would be very different but it would also be as Marvel as anything else they’d ever made – including some of the biggest set pieces they’ve ever done.”

WandaVision will be nine episodes long and looks set to be a must-watch for anyone interested in the Marvel universe. The show starts on Disney Plus on January 15.
