If anything has been hyped up about WandaVision, it's definitely the more experimental take on the story. With the show allegedly being a love letter to classic sitcoms, it's been revealed that Marvel actually shot the pilot in front of a live studio audience.

According to Entertainment Weekly, when the pilot episode was shot last year, Marvel actually brought in an audience (who had signed very strict NDAs) to watch the shooting. What's more, they shot the show with vintage cameras and had everyone in the crew wear ‘50s-era clothing.

Star Elizabeth Olsen had said about shooting with an audience, "It was insanity… There was something very meta for my own life because I would visit those tapings as a kid, where my sisters were working [on Full House]." Olsen's co-star Paul Bettany also added, "We were all so high by the end of it, we wanted to keep on running the show… Maybe take it out on tour or something. WandaVision on ice."

Since the live audience is only specific to one era, we shouldn't expect the entire series to be shot that way. I just think it's very neat that Marvel would decide to do something that creative behind the camera. Though the Infinity Saga was a success, a lot of people have called Marvel out for adhering to a very specific formula. Hopefully WandaVision marks a change in things moving forward, because after Endgame, the rest will have to try very hard to try and top what's come before.

No release date has been set for WandaVision, but the series is expected to come out before the end of 2020 on Disney+.
