MCU films to watch before Marvel show WandaVision

WandaVision is going to kickstart phase 4 in MCU and that calls for some recap with old films from the universe.

Marvel show WandaVision is definitely a step up into the cinematic universe of Marvel movies. While with the show, we enter Phase 4 of the universe, there’s more to know from the past. So, we decided to curate a list of films you could watch before WandaVision finally streams on Disney+Hotstar.

The Marvel show Wandavision will see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany take on the roles of Wanda aka Scarlet and Vision, respectively. With this show, both Witch and Vision will be in an altered reality, and also joining in will be a few characters. Some known faces like Dracy, Jimmy, and others are also going to return.

So, here’s our quick list of MCU films to watch before the show begins streaming!

Thor and Thor: The Dark World are crucial films to the story. While one might be free to skip the first part, it will only enable one to understand Darcy’s journey better. Since she is going to be a part of the Marvel show, the following film also becomes relevant, or at least close to relevant.

Meanwhile, check out the trailer of WandaVision here:

Now, moving on, we have Avengers: Age of Ultron being immensely responsible for setting up WandaVision. We’ve seen Wanda in Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s post credit, here’s when we are introduced properly. So it is from here that the story of Wanda begins to get real, and also paves way for what the future holds. And if that’s not enough, we are given a hint to the romance that lies ahead and we are introduced to Vision.

Next up, Captain America: Civil War is where we see Wanda and Vision’s relationship take shape. It sure is a must watch MCU film on this list here. Though they’re fighting on opposite ends in the Lagos tragedy, more hints about the love-story follow. Marvel show Wandavision is definitely going to require some of these backstories to know it better.

And finally, we have Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The former has a direct impact on what will follow in their lives, the Mind Stone poses threat. We witness Wanda having to see Vision die twice, courtesy Thanos, and oh boy, heartbreaking much! And that’s when the theory about Wanda changing reality to not have a life without Vision comes in. Now, what excites us is the possibility of WandaVision ahead since we don’t know what happened to his body after all.

And finally, Endgame is the movie to watch just before, purely because of Wanda’s fight with Thanos. Her character arch is likely to witness an effect in Marvel show WandaVision after her conversation with Thanos.
