2020 will mark the first year since 2009 without a Marvel movie in theatres, but fans of the MCU are getting something new in the form of the WandaVision TV show on Disney Plus in January 2021.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige has now shared a few more details on the show, telling Empire that the series was influenced by classic American TV shows, while also incorporating modern elements like talking to the camera as they do on The Office.

"I loved TV, and watched far too much The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy and Bewitched and everything," Feige said. "We go up to the Modern Family and The Office style. The talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style."

Also in the interview, Feige spoke about Elizabeth Olsen's character, Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch. He said no character from the Infinity saga experienced more pain and trauma than she did, and she's also extremely powerful, and all of this presents the potential to tell interesting stories on the WandaVision TV show.

"It seemed exploring that would be worthwhile post-Endgame. Who else is aware of that power? Where did it come from? Did the Mind Stone unlock it?" Feige said.

The other main character is Vision, and Paul Bettany is returning to play him once more on the TV show.

WandaVision is coming to Disney Plus on January 15. It is the first of numerous Marvel spinoff TV shows for the streamer; others include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan; Loki starring Tom Hiddleston; Hawkeye starring Jeremy Renner; and Ms. Marvel featuring Iman Vellani in the title role.
