‘WandaVision’: An Analysis of ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’

I was honestly worried that the seventh episode of the series was going to leave me underwhelmed and wishing for more but honestly, it was perfect. It offered just enough tantalizing tidbits to leave me satisfied and it left us with a cliffhanger that’s going to be a gas!

(You see what I did there?)

But anyway, I’m here to talk about the episode, its most fascinating moment, and what we could expect with these last two episodes. Enjoy!

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Will ‘WandaVision’ Be Too Weird For Its Britches?

WandaVision is just a little over a month away and as six posters were released in the last few days for the series I don’t know what to think. Here they are.

Each poster represents a different decade for each episode. The question is, will this show be good? The actors have been excited about it ever since they read its script, heralding it for its weird wackiness and its exhilarating storyline.

Of course, all of this is leading up to whatever Wanda Maximoff’s storyline will entail in Phase 4 of the MCU and I have a feeling this show is building to the moment when she becomes an antagonist. The thought is very exciting but after The Mandalorian I’m just hoping that this show can be good too.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Ranking the Marvel Heroines; From Worst to Best: Updated

When I first created this post I was still a month and a half away from seeing Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, since then, we have had three new heroines join the party; Captain Marvel, Wasp, and Pepper Potts, meaning this list needs an update pronto. Enjoy my new ranking of the Marvel heroines!

15. Agent 13

I didn’t realize how much I liked Sharon Carter until it was announced that she may play a role in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier series on Disney+. I was legitimately excited. At that moment I realized just how much she had grown on me over the years. I would probably place her higher if she wasn’t against such stiff competition, hence the last place on this list.

14. Agent Peggy Carter

I like Peggy because she isn’t just a pretty face. She’s also tough, strong-willed, and she proved that she was more than just a love interest/damsel-in-distress. I appreciate that. It’s a shame that she only made one major appearance in the franchise in Captain America: The First Avenger but she definitely won me over.

Captain America: Secret War (THIRTY-SIX)

Sam, Natasha, Wanda, and Vision rushed into the room where they would find Sam’s much needed Falcon exo-suit. The area, designed to be a meeting room for those in Parliament, had become a treasure trove of stolen items that Dr. Frost and her goons had acquired.

“We have to be careful,” Vision said, his face still pained from the attack earlier. “Dr. Frost is near.”

“I sure am,” rose the voice of Dr. Frost as she stepped into view on the other side of the room. She smiled as she beheld the four heroes. Her head cocked to the side. “Looking for something?”

Captain America: Secret War (THIRTY-FOUR)

Sam Wilson paced. He always paced when he was in a cell. He didn’t know why. He just didn’t like the idea of sitting still. Wanda Maximoff was the exact opposite. She sat completely still, her unblinking gaze facing forward and her knees drawn up to her chest. Her expression was so blank sometimes Sam would pause and intently look at her to make sure she was still breathing. And every time she was.

Being in a cell without the aid of sunlight left one disoriented. Sam believed it had been twenty-four hours since they Dr. Frost had come to see them but he wasn’t sure. For all he knew, it could’ve been only four hours. He was certain about one thing though. He had been in here far too long.

He walked over to the glass and punched it again. Shaking his hand free of the pain he shook his head with annoyance. They needed to get out of here. They had to get out of here.

Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-TWO)

When Sam Wilson woke he knew something was wrong. His Falcon exoskeleton suit was gone, leaving him in his normal attire. Beside him, Wanda Maximoff was laying on the dank stone floor unconscious. He touched her forehead and was relieved to feel that her temperature was normal.

He sighed. Where were they?

He stood, walking to the glass wall that sat on the far side of the cell. Unfortunately, there was nothing to see except for a dark stone hall lit by torches. That was odd. Who used torches for light anymore?

He placed his hand on the glass wall, half-expecting it to shock him, but it was a normal barrier. A lightbulb went off in his head. He looked at his hand, balled it into a fist, and punched the glass with all of his might. (He had once seen Steve Rogers punch glass and it cracked expectedly.) It felt like he had broken nearly every bone in his hand. He groaned as he cradled his throbbing hand. The glass, however, was unmarred.

He cursed. This was the fate he knew he was chancing by covering the Wakandans’ escape but still, it wasn’t often when he found himself captured. Or at least that used to be the case. This was the second time in six months that he found himself in a cell. That wasn’t a statistic to be proud of.

He heard movement and when he looked Wanda was rising to her knees and holding her head. He hurried to her side, startling her. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-TWO)
