Of course you can. Suggesting otherwise is like saying you can't tell a blockbuster WWII story or you can't make Rogue 1.

For that matter it would be like saying it was impossible for the MCU to make Captain Marvel or release Ant Man 2 after Infinity War.

your problem is there is verymuch a right way to do things. start with a dps job and do absolutely nothing but the MSQ. literally do not touch any other content/quests.

you do this because after the MSQ you will level in dungeons so you want to be on healer or tank and because many things are gated by MSQ progress and because if you do other stuff you will outlevel the MSQ (esp if you are on a preferred server) and you'll still have to do it but it will be trivial and boring.

MSQ quests have a special quest icon, its like on fire or something.

Does it mean Xbox exclusivity for Bethesda titles?  If so, then that is the end of good Bethesda game as far as I am concerned.  If not, then who gives a fuck.

I'm doubting they are going for the reality-warping Scarlet Witch. Since it has already been stated that this has connections to the Dr. Strange sequel, I'm guessing it will have something to do with trying to bring the Vision back without his connection to that stone since that's what powered him in the first place.

They never went into any actual detail with how it happened, but Wanda and Quicksilver in the MCU somehow got their powers from the mind stone also. Never really made a whole lot of sense, but there's an added connection there between Vision and Wanda.

Yeah, this is some pocket dimension where Vision isnt technically dead, and Wanda isnt technically real, but yet they are both there. Timey-wimey wibbly wobbly stuff, no happy ending unless Dr. Strange somehow immanentizes the Eschaton and makes Pinnochio into a real boy in his next movie.

It does feel a lot like they are taking some of the tone and ideas from that Tom King Vision series where he created an entire family (wife and kids) and their AI all went in completely different ways. That would be a bold take on the two characters relationship and I wholeheartedly support it.

I'll watch it no matter what story they are taking and I loved the trailer.

? It's set in a sitcom-looking reality. Maybe that's most of the episodes.

There also was an early Vision and Scarlet Witch limited series when they first left the Avengers where they moved to New Jersey and just tried to live a normal suburban life. They may be riffing off that too.

I honestly hope they don't go for Scarlet Witch-reality-warping-powers character. She's been at the heart of some truly terrible shit as a result of that approach.

So my take is that she's created some sort of pocket reality here where Vision is "alive" but it's unstable as she mentally keeps trying to block out reality.

 

I hope this is it.

Also, I've seen it described as "disney+'s first sitcom", but that trailer didn't look anything like a sitcom.

Scarlet Witch's powers have always been fairly ill-defined. At one point in the comics she was powerful enough to warp reality and that has manifested in dangerous ways either consciously or subconsciously due to trauma. Also at least at one point it was said that there'd be connection here to the Dr. Strange sequel.

So my take is that she's created some sort of pocket reality here where Vision is "alive" but it's unstable as she mentally keeps trying to block out reality.

So my basic guess is that somehow they're in a virtual reality where the Vison's consciousness survives and somehow Wanda gets a chance to join him there and they're trying to figure out how to build their relationship in a situation where he can't even be 'real'. I would not be surprised if some other Marvel bad guy who operates in that kind of situation is in there with them, unbeknownst to them. Ultron, possibly? Quasimodo? The Mad Thinker? etc.

In terms of what you're seeing, they seem to be in a I Love Lucy sort of sitcom (with a slight touch of the Dick Van Dyke show, maybe), but maybe with some of the set-up of Bewitched (nosy neighbor spotting the superpowers, etc.) but then there's other settings/frames.

The other referencing I can kind of see is:

a) The Vision and Scarlet Witch had two "children" that she created more or less by wishing for them (summoning souls from the netherworld without knowing it) who were then retconned out (driving her dangerously insane, with some ultimately cosmos-changing consequences) and who were then retconned back in as having gone off to an alternate reality, etc. It's possible that Wanda's presence in this virtual reality is not because the Vision is there and she wants to join him but because they need to manage her because she has a remnant connection to the Infinity Stones. I kind of hope not--I really actually hate this version of the Scarlet Witch (reality-altering, crazy, etc.). But that scene where the dude is grilling them about where they are actually from feels a bit like that kind of "you're crazy and somebody is determined to make you feel that you're crazy" thing.

b) I dunno about the witch who is "because you are dead" is, but she might be a new version of Agatha Harkness, a kind of shitty character connected to a hidden city of magic people who became the nanny for the Fantastic Four and then a kind of mentor to the Scarlet Witch. Maybe she's bringing some bad news/good news to them after the sitcom virtual reality breaks down.

c) Other possibility is that they're going to work with the super-bummer but very good Tom King Vision limited series but that doesn't have the Scarlet Witch in it in a major way--however, it does seriously think about AI and androids etc. and they might rip out a few of its best ideas to explore what it means to be the Vision (especially if he's now a completely virtual intelligence). It's possibly that he AND Wanda have to be stuck in a virtual reality because both of them have residual Infinity Stone shit going on and that worries/interests someone good/someone bad and this becomes an exploration of his consciousness primarily. The bit about him dressing up for Halloween in full color feels a bit like that.
