Is this new information? I came across a
story saying the series will draw
inspiration from JB's work on The West
Coast Avengers.

Since my young daughter loves Wanda from the Avengers movies, I'll fear I'll have to watch this with her.
At least there will be a plot now.

Yes and no? We know that the Vision was destroyed in INFINITY WAR, that the Mind Stone (which was key to Vision’s personality) was destroyed, and from the trailers, Wanda appears to be having some sort of mental break. The elements for “Vision Quest” have been there, and I expect that is pretty much all that WANDAVISION will draw from it.

Is there a double meaning to the name that I’m missing?
WANDAVISION seems like a lame title for the show.

Isn’t it some kind of show within a show? WANDAVISION does double duty as Wanda/Vision and the presentation of the show, like VistaVision.

Could be wrong!

That's how I think of it.

I've always thought that in INFINITY WAR, Shuri may have finished her work right at the last second to reconstruct Vision's brain to function without the Mind Stone, or gotten close enough that she could use it to work based on another person's personality (like in the comics with Wonder Man). 

That could have been explored further if Shuri had survived Thanos, and she repaired Vision while everyone was presumed dead, so she used one of the "dead" Avengers as a personality basis (maybe Bucky since he had been in Wakanda for a long time?)... but then they come back from the dead in ENDGAME, and we have the problems explored in JB's West Coast Avengers.

About the only things I've heard about WandaVision are:
- it will involve both Wanda and the Vision;
- she will wear the classic costume at some point;
- it ties into the next Dr. Strange movie; and
- there might be some involvement by Nightmare (who's said to be the next Dr. Strange big bad).

The advertising for it certainly gives a 1950s sitcom vibe...

I'm very much looking forward to it, especially if they draw on JB's WCA stories. Those were some terrific tales and, IIRC, were the first to delve into how Wanda's powers worked--setting up the potential for much bigger stories.

My understanding of the premise is that Wanda is despondent over the loss of Vision...so she “creates” alternate realities based on various classic TV reruns to cope with her grief.    Hence the title ‘Wanda/Vision’ (which I think is rather clever).  I left out a lot of spoilerly details btw...

Agatha Harkness, Agent Jimmy Woo, Darcy from the Thor franchise(!) and grown up Monica Rambeau are among the characters.  I am VERY excited for all the Disney+ Marvel Studios efforts.  It’s a shame at least one of these series wasn’t ready to debut the minute The Mandalorian ended.

Much like Captain America wore the classic costume in “The First Avenger”......
