As someone that considers himself a step or two above a normie in the Marvel Universe, I felt annoyed by most of the “background plot” that must be the bread and butter of the show. For one, Wanda’s powers were never explained and transferred on the big screen - for what I know from the movies she can shoot purple lasers or something from her hands, maybe shape them in a sort of a form. Not someone who can create real items out of thin air (as her actual powers pretty much are, for all I know).
Second thing is, I never felt that CRAZY love that she had for Vision in the comics to translate in the movies, where she goes absolutely batsh*t crazy and stuff like House of M happens. Their love was just kinda there in those movies, but nothing as crushing as what Hawkeye had to go through with Natasha sacrificing herself… and those two were not even lovers.
Now, maybe here’s where I’m mistaken and the show will go in a slightly different direction with something-something Hydra (Hail!), but the disconnection is still just there.
I’ll have to also point that I am not a fan of parallel universes, time travel and whatnot in those sorts of movies. It allows for lazy writing and characters that will always return because of some shenanigan. It’s a huge part of why I didn’t really enjoyed Endgame - Infinity War was by far the superior movie.
Thus said, I can appreciate them trying something different, but on top of all of this that I wrote, I think it’s just not my cup of tea (yet?). I can make a parallel with Legion (that lasted 3 seasons). It was also really wacky and hard to get into, but once you got in it was really good (by that I mean you need to struggle through the first season). Agent’s of SHIELD you also had to start watch somewhere around S01 E15 (when Bill Paxton showed up) for the show to find its pulse.
I can also put a big plus on the length of the episodes - thank god they are not 1 hour suffering. For 22 minutes I can push myself to pay some attention to it. I guess I’ll watch it cause there’s pretty much nothing else new to watch lately (aside “The Expanse”, which is amazing, but has just few episodes left to release).
