Find out how WandaVision was made 

Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall in the Marvel Studios when they’re making a television series or movie? Well now you can by watching a new series from the studio where we get documentary-style specials about just that. The first episode is titled: Assembled: The Making of WandaVision.

This episode features Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and the creative team behind Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, as they welcome viewers behind the scenes of this popular series.

You can learn how the production’s surprising concept took shape by drawing inspiration from classic sitcoms. It’s interesting to see how the crew went to great lengths to emulate various filmmaking methods used during the early years of television.

If you haven’t discovered WandaVision yet, it’s a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe where Wanda Maximoff and Vision – two super-powered beings living ordinary suburban lives – begin to suspect everything is not as it seems. 

WandaVision the first Marvel Studios series created only for Disney+ and it stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Paul Bettany as Vision, Kathryn Hahn as Agnes, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau. Kat Dennings reprises her role as Darcy from Thor and “Thor: The Dark World,” and Randall Park reprises his role as Jimmy Woo from “Ant-Man and The Wasp.”
