Kendall Phillips, professor of communication and rhetorical studies in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, was interviewed by Observer for the story “The Privileges and Pitfalls of ‘WandaVision’ and Marvel’s Disney+ Empire.” Phillips, who teaches a class on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, says that the brand’s newest venture, WandaVision, is a sitcom formatted show that connects to the deep history of Marvel and its themes. “What’s smart about this move is that it really activates all the fan networks as various MCU fans share theories about the who/what/where behind the underlying mystery,” Phillips says.
