What Did The Critics Think of ‘WandaVision’?

277

The first two episodes from WandaVision, the first Marvel Studios series created exclusively for Disney+, is now available to stream globally.

I think it would be fair to say that the reaction from audiences, especially in our Facebook Group, has been mixed so far. But what did the critics think of WandaVision? 

As it stands, WandaVision holds an incredible 97% rating out of 127 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. For context, The Mandalorain is sitting at a 93% rating. We do have to keep in mind that we still have another 7 episodes from WandaVision to go, so changes are likely to happen over the next few weeks.

The following views and opinions expressed below are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect DisneyPlusInformer.com.

WandaVision’s commitment to confounding expectations might offer something few franchises as hoary as this one ever do – a fresh, surprising way in. – NPR

WandVision works best precisely because it is unlike anything the MCU’s model has ever produced before. – Observer

Once WandaVision starts recycling the same content in each episode, it becomes difficult to ignore that the show’s primary interest is playing with form rather than propelling its story forward. – RobertEbert.com

No matter how much people claim “WandaVision” is like nothing the company has done before, for better or worse, it’s more of the same. –  Indiewire.com

Whatever it is, “WandaVision” is the weirdest entry yet into the MCU, and a significant artistic step forward in its storytelling. DetroitNews.com

As the show goes on and starts coming into focus, maybe it’ll hit the vibe of that twisted Twilight Zone reality I think they might be going for here. But for my money, I think they should have hit that in the first couple episodes. –JeremyJahns.com

…for those willing to wait, showrunner Jac Schaeffer seems to be slowly building up the mystery, laying the foundation for the series by fully immersing it into the sitcom world that has become Wanda and Vision’s new reality… – The Ringer

For the first time in a long, long time, I have no idea what to expect from a Marvel thing, and that’s a nice surprise. – Now Toronto 

Despite some fun performances, Stark Industries cameos, and a hefty homage to past generations of television, it’s tiresome… Slightly confounding expectations become the quicksand here. Deadline

Nostalgic, fun, and intriguing all at once, it’s a successful mix of two genres that no one would have ever thought to put together. Decider

WandaVision is playing the long game and one can only hope that the big picture will be more interesting than its visually appealing but only fitfully satisfying component parts. CineGods.com
