I've never seen this before, or for the most part, I've never noticed it. But this series started 2 weeks ago and they have now dropped two more trailers. An "Prepare" trailer AND "Extended Clip". I believe I have seen extended clips once a movie has been out, I think, but for a TV show? Maybe I've just never really taken them onboard to only notice them now.
So at first was baffled as to why, but since the first week of airring the first two episodes, the show has become divisive. Last week's episode, the third episode, a lot of people felt as though the first 3 episodes should have been released and I'm guessing, the reason for these two trailers, maybe, is to steer people more on track.
You see, WandaVision has a lot going on and nothing is really explained at all. The show leaves you with more questions than answers and we are only 3 episodes in. As you can tell from the previous trailers, it seems to be all sitcom styled with laugh tracks and such, but why? It has been well written, well acted and mostly, well crafted in such a way, ultimately it looks like a departure from what we know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or at least, not what we are used to, so, I believe this trailer intends to provide just that bit more clarity needed for the confused viewer or those who haven't enjoyed the first two episodes and have bailed on it.
These trailers show that there is more going on, more that meets the eye. The MCU part of the show with a familiar character from the Ant-Man films. This trailer shows a touch more of what is going on and if the first two episodes drove people away, I hope these new trailers bring people back to stick with it. The first act is complete now, now for the bigger reveals to happen and the show to really begin.
On Disney+ now and 4th episode out today.
Directed by Matt Shakman and starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, Randall Park & Kathryn Hahn.
