Charles Murphy of Murphy’s Universe gave last but most in-depth review. Charles Murphy praised the magic between the duo of Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. They both are charming and hilarious and work perfectly together and stated that their magic was proved in front of a live studio audience. Charles Murphy further gave Kevin Feige, Matt Shakman, and Jac Shaeffer, who kept everything from the sitcoms of different eras to the point ranging from camera work to audience reactions to cultural sensibilities.

Charles Murphy further talked more about both main actors by calling Paul Bettany the real treasure among all as an A-plus comedic actor who worked his corny jokes way effortlessly. On the other hand, Murphy praised Elizabeth Olsen. The latter, just like Bettany, plays different characters in different episodes. Still, the actor’s way of reconciling that she has another character apart from the one she is playing sells her performance calling Olsen a gem of an actor.

At the end of his review, Charles Murphy called Wanda Vision something that audiences have never seen before. Still, he will take them to places they have been before and is glad where Marvel is headed because Murphy believes this way the fans will stay for a longer period of time.
