Marvel boss Kevin Feige has revealed how he created the unique title for Elizabeth Olsen. WandaVision.
Despite not releasing a single Marvel theatrical project for over 12 months, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first foray into television was a resounding success with Elizabeth Olsen. WandaVision. Both a tribute to and a parody of sitcoms throughout the year, the limited series directed by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany garnered praise from fans and critics, with many praising it as the best series of the year. Much of the show’s success goes to Kevin Feige, the architect behind the MCU. Feige’s involvement with the franchise is unmatched, and his attention to detail, right down to the series title, shows just how innovative he can be.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Kevin Feige talked about how he came up with the WandaVision title. The title was originally more traditional, but to suit the unique aesthetics and themes of Elizabeth Olsen’s show, it was inspired by an equally unique film.
“I didn’t want to call the show Wanda and Vision or The Scarlet Witch and Vision. I was in the AFI [American Film Institute] Lunch in 2018 and I remember looking at the board where they listed the top 10 movies and watching BlacKkKlansman. I remember thinking, ‘How cool is that? They just mixed up those two words and the audience just accepts that as a title. ‘ So I thank Spike Lee for making BlacKkKlansman. I know it’s the strangest connection ever, but that’s how it came about. “
