Hey friends! Welcome back for The Weekly Bugle Vol 14. This week we are discussing Episode 4 “We Interrupt This Program” of WandaVision, new film releases like Malcolm and Marie, Coda, and more!
The Weekly Bugle Vol 14
Another week of WandaVision means we have more theories, questions, and favorite moments. It seems like the main question of who is behind the fake reality was answered but we know that with Marvel the obvious answer might not always be 100% reality.
Spoiler warning if you have not watched WandaVision episode 4.
WandaVision Episode 4 “We Interrupt This Program” Breakdown
This week’s episode of WandaVision took audiences outside the bubble and into the real world of the MCU. Monica’s mother, Maria Rambeau founded SWORD and died of cancer. Heartbreaking.
Monica heads to New Jersey to help everyone’s favorite FBI agent Jimmy Woo to track down not only his missing person but the missing town of Westview. We find out how Monica gets inside the bubble and Dr. Darcy Lewis from the Thor movies returns. Darcy figures out it is a broadcast and that they can watch what is happening in Westview on TV. She and Woo have the best scenes and fans are wanting to see more of them, us included.
The show ends with a very jarring look at DEAD Vision, dead dead Vision not sorta dead Vision before returning back to its happy-go-lucky sitcom format.
It seemed that a major question was answered: Who is controlling the sitcom reality? Wanda. Monica and Wanda both make it clear Wanda is in control, but since when is anything THAT easy to figure out in the MCU? Sure, Wanda maybe in control but she’s not the only one in control. And more proof of Mephisto could be hiding right within that hexagonal shape.

We don’t know about you but figuring out all these theories can make a geek thirsty. Good thing Jana is all about making specialty drinks. This Agnes/Mephisto inspired cocktail is divine devilishly tasty. We recommend you enjoy it responsibly asap.
What We Are Watching
We could go on forever about WandaVision and our theories, but we also wanted to highlight some of the recent indie films, Sundance festival offerings, and other movies we have watched in the past week.
Coda premiered at Sundance last week and was picked up by Apple TV for $25M! The film centers around a hearing child in a deaf family who finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music and her family’s reliance on her to be their connection to the outside world.
Palmer starring Justin Timberlake is now available on Apple TV. Finding ‘Ohana is now streaming on Netflix. This is a family-friendly film that follows two siblings from Brooklyn who return to Hawaii to connect with their Hawaiian heritage. They end up on a daring quest that has some definite Goonies vibes.
The Night, available to rent on Amazon, is about an Iranian couple living in the US who become trapped inside a hotel when insidious events force them to face the secrets that have come between them, in a night that never ends.
We both screened this one and found it to be brilliant. The story-telling takes nods from The Shining but manages not to fall back on the classic or try and copy it. It uses Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece as a starting-off point and then makes something truly unique.
Malcom & Marie coming to Netflix Feb. 5 is one of Jana’s favorite films from the last several months. It stars John David Washington and Zendaya as the title characters, a director and his girlfriend, whose relationship is tested on the night of his latest film’s premiere. It masterfully shows the chaos of their relationship, the volatility, and the love.
Thor Love and Thunder Set Photos
Recently shared images from the Thor Love and Thunder set to show the Guardians of the Galaxy in their newest uniforms. We also see Bro Thor is gone and godly Thor is back, also sporting a Ravenger-style suit. We have to wonder if Star-Lord’s beard has anything to do with his ongoing rivalry with the god of thunder.
