Marvel Studios’ WandaVision

Just by looking at the WandaVision concept art, it’s already shaping up to be one weird show. During D23 Expo, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige described the show as being half-sitcom and half-Marvel adventure, with the sitcom part being inspired by The Dick Van Dyke Show. With (Avengers: Infinity War Spoiler) Vision dead at the hand of Thanos, we’re wondering how the sentient robot is going to return in the upcoming series.

The Mandalorian: Season 2

The Mandalorian was a phenomenon, especially with the cute “Baby Yoda” traveling with the bounty hunter. With Season 2 already planned, we’re excited to see what adventure awaits. One this is for sure, The Mandalorian merchandise is going to be extremely popular. I have spoken.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series – Season 2
