WandaVision Binge List

WandaVision is surprising us with a 2020 release date (I hadn’t expected it until 2021 or later at this rate). We still don’t have an exact release date, but if you need some reviewing of our titular characters, take a look at this watchlist. I also included movies featuring more minor characters already confirmed for the show. 

Thor (1 hour 55 min)
This movie is the first of our optional viewing. Since Darcy is set to appear in WandaVision (although we don't know in what capacity). Darcy is one of my favorites (as I've said before) so I'm excited to have her back again. So start with this Thor backstory movie.

Thor: The Dark World (1 hour 52 min)
Another optional viewing to see Darcy. While she wasn't super involved in the action of this movie, she moved the plot along and definitely helped with the final battle (even if she got a bit distracted by her intern at that one point).

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2 hours 16 min)
This is our first movie to actually feature one of the main characters of WandaVision. It might only be the credits scene, but it's still definitely relevant for Scarlet Witch's backstory. If you don't have time to watch Winter Soldier, just google the scene.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2 hours 22 min)
Wanda's first true appearance and Vision's creation. If you've been following these binge lists, you've already seen this addressed for Black Widow. This time we're focusing on Wanda's growth, from working for Hydra to losing her brother and becoming an Avenger. We also obviously get Vision's creation by Ultron/Thor.

Captain America: Civil War (2 hours 28 min)
While the Avengers have their issues in this movie, this movie gives us our first glimpse of Wanda and Vision's relationship. They ended up on different sides of the Avengers Civil War, but they still showed they had a connection, though it wouldn't be fully explored.

Avengers: Infinity War (2 hours 40 min)
This was the first true appearance of Wanda and Vision's relationship, in my opinion. And just like that we put them in a spot where their lives were on the brink. Especially Vision. He had to die for the Avengers to win, but even then it wasn't enough and they lost anyway.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2 hours 5 min)
Another optional one for a side character. Agent Woo is set to appear in WandaVision, but we don't know to what extent. He was sort of a side antagonist/comic relief in Ant-Man and the Wasp, so I'm not sure what to expect from him next. I was surprised to see him return.

Captain Marvel (2 hours 5 min)
Our final optional one. This time it's because Monica Rambeau is set to appear in WandaVision. She's getting re-casted, due to the 20+ year time jump between them. Not sure how much Monica is even going to appear in the show, but we'll see.

Avengers: Endgame (3 hours 2 min)
Wanda didn't appear until the end of the movie and the final battle, but it's an important step in the story right? The thing we have yet to find out is how WandaVision is gonna happen with Vision still dead. There are some theories out there, but I guess we'll find out.

What are you expecting from WandaVision? Any theories or things you're looking forward to? I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll play into the Doctor Strange sequel.
