Wanda and Vision’s happy marriage a façade?

WandaVision series

WandaVision is one of those upcoming shows that fans don’t know what to expect. But with the release of an official trailer, we have a little insight into what will happen.

One of the things that make the television show interesting is how Vision, the human-looking android killed in Avengers: Infinity War will be brought back.

In the trailer, we see how the titular characters are living what seems to be the perfect life until Vision’s chance meeting with a mysterious lady alters the course of their suburban life.

Given the fact that it is shrouded in secrecy, fans should expect many surprises when the series debuts on Disney +. I for one would love to see the show’s transition from the sitcom-like series to special effects-laden superhero tale.

WandaVision is created by Jac Schaeffer and is set in the MCU. It stars Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, Randall Park, and Kathryn Hahn.

Check out the trailer below:

Filmmakers have steadily dished out content that deals with racism and segregation and given the continued Black Lives Matter protests over the incessant killings of black folks, it’s an issue that more important to hash out now more than ever.

Small Axe is an upcoming British-American anthology series created and directed by Steve McQueen. It tells different stories about racism and is set to premiere on November 20, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video.

Boyega plays Leroy Logan, a young forensic scientist craving to do more than his solitary laboratory work. After witnessing his father being assaulted by two policemen, he is compelled to join the police force and lead the charge against police brutality against blacks.

From the trailer, Wright has a prominent role as one of the activists in the series, risking all to stop the continued injustice meted out to her and her people.
