I should have done a trailer reaction for this streaming show, but you know what, the opportunity completely missed me by, so I’ll give you a bit of a reaction now! Most of that reaction is to be honest one of relative disinterest and also a little confusion.
The show which will air on Disney + from 15th January was produced for the streaming network by Marvel Studios, with Jac Schaeffer at the helm, and it’s going to be pretty interesting to see what she does with Marvel’s first dedicated program for the streaming platform – she hasn’t got a huge repertoire as it stands… From the trailer I’m not too hopeful to be honest.
It is said that this fits in to the MCU timeline after Endgame and it features Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and Vision, who I really have to say is possibly one of the most boring of the Avengers… Even more so than Hawkeye and Black Widow! But it is nice to see that they are letting Paul Bettany reprise the character for the show, so at least we know the acting is going to be good. The trailer doesn’t fill my heart with hope though that his acting will be enough to save the show.
It feels like some sort of weird live action cross over between Bewitched and just about any camp superhero show from the past, with a full set of vehicles and fixtures borrowed from the Fallout computer game series.
I can’t think of too much good to say about what I’m expecting after seeing the trailer so check it our for yourself and let’s keep our fingers crossed for the 15th January! They’ve already given away that there’s a twist by saying that it’s an ideal life but they suspect that not everything is as it seems… Maybe they thought this was the perfect combo to also include a bit of the Truman Show! At least if it’s no good we only need to ride out 6 episodes of it!
