Here Is A Smart Reason Why WandaVision Was Shot In Front Of Live Audience


Marvel has been quiet for a while! But, nothing is going to be in silence atleast for Marvel as there have been many teases revealing out on the upcoming Marvel movies in which one among then is their upcoming Wanda Vision which has finally got a clearance to hit in Disney+ for the name as ‘first of its MCU-based shows on a streaming platform’

With this being set, there has been much information being revealed about the movies thus, it surely says that the movie will come with an awesome storyline and fictional scene. In relation to the movie recently star Paul Bettany has revealed the smart reason why they filmed parts of the series in front of a live audience.

In his interview with Reelblend, he discussed his upcoming projects and was, of course, asked about the new show. When he was prompted to talk about filming the series in front of a live studio audience for which Paul Bettany said:

“And, there was a practical reason for it, which is you’re trying to have exactly the same production values as you would on one of the big movies. So, being able to shoot one episode in two days and really curtail the amount of time you spend on those early episodes – and shoot them as they would have been shot in the 1950s, with three-camera set-ups and sets that are built on a stage with an audience and +you get through it really quickly, and then you’re able to bank that time to shoot the action”

WandaVision does have a chance to take advantage if things go as in the traditional three-camera sitcoms film for the show. Even, Paul Bettany explained this and said, we can fully expect WandaVision to give us all the MCU goodness we’re expecting when it comes to delivering action and production values we’d typically see on the big screen. 

But, this show will be a lot more different from its Disney+ / MCU siblings but as like its MCU siblings, it will be focussing on the action.

The filming was done in front of a live studio audience for which Paul Bettany said:

“OK, so it was the best fun ever. And, I kind of thought, ‘God, I’ve totally wasted my life. I should have been doing sitcoms.’ It was so much fun; like being in summer stock or something. Running around backstage, grabbing props off prop tables, and bumping into Kathryn Hahn as she’s trying to come through the door at the right moment. We shot it twice, I actually wasn’t blue; I was looking like myself. There were only a couple of shots [where I was blue]”

The movie will be officially on Disney+ on 15th January, so make sure to be ready at the occasion of its release.
