WandaVision: A Review of the Disney+ Miniseries

To be completely and entirely honest, WandaVision was the show I was least looking forward to when Disney first announced the Marvel shows that would be coming to the Disney+ streaming platform this year. Nobody has time to watch every TV show out there and I decided quickly that WandaVision was not a priority. NothingContinue reading “WandaVision: A Review of the Disney+ Miniseries”
