Thirsty Twitter Users Give Vision A 'Vishawn' Makeover

It seems like everyone and their mom has been talking about Marvel's Wandavision, especially since the finale aired on Disney+. The episode was so emotional that nerd-cum-director Kevin Smith shared a tearful selfie after watching it three times. On Twitter, however, it seems some people are more interested in Vision's sex appeal than the show's culmination. 

While it makes sense that the internet's thirst levels have been high (thanks, Covid-19 lockdowns), Black Twitter has taken things to the next level. Normally, Marvel fans are seen thirsting after meaty hunks like Thor or Captain America. But this weekend, their unholy gaze was set upon Vision, who is essentially a glorified robot. 

The fun started when Twitter user @gooonicorn shared some images of Vision in a turtleneck. The tweet went viral, and got a lot of women saying some highly questionable things. The tweet also spawned Vision's alter ego "Vishawn," as well as many, many edits of the character  decked out in gold chains, grills, and even a durag. While this may not be everyone's brand of humor, we can probably agree that a little humor is refreshing after that tear-inducing finale.

Marvel's WandaVision is easily the most popular show streaming right now about a scarlet witch of vaguely defined powers living inside a vintage sitcom with her dead husband, an android named Vision who used to be Robert Downey Jr.'s robo-butler named JARVIS. Second on to The Crown, probably. We don't know, we haven't seen it. But the weird thing is, everything we just described is actually an extremely simplified version of Scarlet Witch's comic book adventures. If you think the show is perplexing, your head might explode upon learning that if you dig deep into the comics' canon... it's pretty messed up. So let's go ahead and do that.

'WandaVision' Trailer Is A Trippy First Look At Marvel's Disney+ Series

Marvel fans finally had something to celebrate yesterday when Marvel Entertainment released the first trailer for the Disney+ WandaVision miniseries yesterday. The series doesn't have an official release date, but the colorful, zany, and surreal teaser gives us much to be excited about. The show takes place after Avengers: Endgame, and Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany return to their roles as Scarlet Witch and Vision. Vision, according to the trailer, is still dead at the hands of Thanos - which suggests that much of show must take place in some kind of fantasy world. Perhaps it's all in Wanda's brain. If that's the case, we don't blame her. The way 2020 is going, living in an imaginary reality sounds pretty great. 

The trailer has mostly been met with positive reception, especially concerning the show's star-studded cast - which includes Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, Kat Dennings, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau. Between the talent, the gorgeous imagery, and rumors of a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, we couldn't be more excited. Let's just hope the release is soon. We need all the quality television we can get.
