The first trailer for Marvel's 'WandaVision' will bend your mind

If you were hoping that the trailer for the so-called 'Marvel sitcom' WandaVision would clear up a few nagging questions, then you may find yourself disappointed.

But not necessarily in a bad way.

The upcoming series for Disney+ finds Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprising their roles as sentient android Vision and Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, but transplanted to a most peculiar setting.

The series takes place in what appears to be – on the surface at least – a hokey, 50s-style US sitcom, a la Bewitched, complete with canned laughter.

Vision and Wanda are an all-American, recently married couple moving into a new suburban neighbourhood, and hoping to 'fit in'.

But something appears to be a little off in this version of the American Dream.

An unsettling dinner party situation and some strange behaviour from Kathryn Hahn's character hint at much weirdness to come.

Also, Hahn's character is still being called 'Nosy Neighbor' by Disney, which suggests her identity is more important than they’re letting on.

Could they be in another dimension? Have they gone back in time?

As we say, this trailer raises far more questions than answers.

We do know some other characters will be involved, however, with Teyonah Parris playing Monic Rambeau, the daughter of Maria Rambeau, best chum to Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.

Meanwhile, Kat Dennings will be reprising her role as Darcy Lewis, chum of Thor from both the first Thor movie and Thor: The Dark World, as will Randall Park, playing FBI agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp.

So, in short, there's plenty of Marvel cross pollination here, meaning that the path of WandaVision will link in somehow to the wider MCU story, being the first series in the forthcoming 'phase four'.

The first six episodes will air from December on Disney+.
