The latest episode from Marvel Studios’ WandaVision Julie Bowen from Modern Family speechless. It’s been a year since Modern Family finished and Bowen celebrated in unexpected ways thanks to Marvel Studios and Disney +. The sitcom ran for eleven seasons from 2009 to 2020 and tracked the lives of three different families in suburban Los Angeles. Bowen’s character, Claire Dunphy, was known to break the fourth wall frequently to do justice to the show’s mocked feel. There are mild ones SPOILER for WandaVision episode 7 below.
In the latest episode of WandaVision, aptly titled Breaking the Fourth Wall, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany have channeled the style of Modern family. The episode was praised for how closely it paid tribute to the ABC sitcom. Olsen received high praise for her impressions of Julie Bowen’s Claire Dunphy character. As it turns out, Julie Bowen myself was also very impressed. You can read what she had to say about the latest episode of WandaVision below.
“One year to the day since we wrapped Modern Family, and tonight we were part of WandaVision. They honored I Love Lucy, Bewitched and The Brady Bunch … To see our show as a ‘classic’ The Eyes of an incredibly innovative Marvel show left me speechless. (Trust me and everyone who’s worked with me, this is hard to do.) WandaVision from breaking the 4th wall to the fabric on the couch … wow. What a great way to celebrate a bittersweet anniversary. ”
From the start, WandaVision went through several decades of sitcoms to tell its story. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans were amazed at how far Marvel Studios have gone to pay tribute to classic sitcoms. Fans tried and are still trying to figure out exactly how the sitcom storylines fit into the entire story arc, though Episode 7 only gave everyone some pretty big pointers.
As of this point, there are only two episodes of WandaVision left and things are starting to speed up quickly. The project is the first of the MCU Disney + shows and it has been a slow puzzling puzzle while The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which premieres next month, appears to be more of a traditional Marvel Studios story. However, both shows will have a huge impact on the large-screen portion of the MCU’s Phase 4, which is currently stalling until the theaters can be safely reopened.
Modern Family has received critical acclaim, especially on the first handful of seasons. Later seasons received mixed reviews, but viewers stayed with the show throughout the run. The last episode had 7.37 million viewers while the retrospective documentary that aired before the last episode had 6.72 million viewers. Now fans of the hit sitcom can find a different solution thanks to WandaVision currently streamed on Disney +. You can read Julie Bowen’s official Instagram post about the WandaVision tribute above.
