WandaVision has ended, so it’s time for director Matt Shakman to hit the interview circuit to explain the ins and outs of the show and its production. After all, as long as he doesn’t talk the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spoilers about the show are free game.
To start off his post-victory interviews, Shakman joined Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin on their show, Fatman Beyond. One of the revelations was that WandaVision was originally intended to be 10 episodes. But, like most successful projects, there was room for evolution:
Well, yeah, things were constantly changing and getting rebroken. The story was changing, especially a lot of the real-world stuff and the finale. There was a lot of experimentations going on and sort of trying different things out. We also at one point has 10 episodes planned and we ended up collapsing a couple, you know, just to make the rhythm feel a little bit better. But, yeah, they constantly changed and then of course, once we wrapped in Atlanta the pandemic hit and we ended up having months off. So, then further changes during that we were doing post-production and then ideas would come up and little changes would happen as a result.
