There is little doubt that WandaVision is set to be the craziest Marvel show when it premieres on Disney+ next year. After all, it features two superheroes who find themselves somehow living in an ever-changing sitcom. But is WandaVision canon? And how will it fit with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

What Happens In WandaVision?

The premise of WandaVision reads as follows:

"Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living the ideal suburban life in the town of Westview, trying to conceal their powers. But as they begin to enter new decades and encounter television tropes, the couple suspects things are not as they seem."

That sounds suspicious especially when you remember that Vision was killed off in Avengers: Infinity War. With that in mind, the new series is bringing back a character that is canonically dead in the MCU.

So Is WandaVision Canon?

In terms of the MCU, it's safe to say that WandaVision is canon. After all, the MCU has already altered the origin story of Wanda and her brother Pietro Maximoff, who were introduced as the twin children of Magneto in the comic books.

WandaVision will star Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda and Paul Bettany as Vision. The series will also bring back Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. In addition to that, the show will introduce Teyonah Parris as the adult version of Monica Rambeau, the daughter of Maria Rambeau who previously appeared in Captain Marvel. The series is scheduled for release on January 15, 2021.
