Netflix releases first image of WandaVision star in Blockbuster

Wanda Vision‘s Randall Park and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero have teamed up for a brand new comedy series, and the first image from it has just dropped.

Blockbuster is, unsurprisingly, set in a store of the famous video rental chain and focusing on the people who work there. In fact, the series is going to be set in the final Blockbuster store in America, as the staff look for ways to save the brand from completely going under after the rise of mail-based rental and later online streaming services, both led by Netflix .

Ironically, this Blockbuster series is being created by and for… none other than Netflix!

The first image from the series sees our two leads happily at work, holding up the the generic Blockbuster DVD cases with the company’s official branding all over the picture. The posters also feature the slogan ‘The end of late fees’, which was one of the company’s attempts to combat the rise of Netflix.

Blockbuster does have one store still operating in America to this day. Based in Oregon, it has an estimated 4,000 regular customers and has dabbled in hosting sleepover events.

Other actors making up the ensemble cast include American Vandal‘s Tyler Alvarez, To All the Boys‘Madeleine Arthur, Star Falls‘ Kamaia Fairburn, In the Heights‘Olga Merediz, and Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s JB Smoove.

Randall Park played Jimmy Woo in Wanda Vision most famously, but he actually first played the role in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Will he reprise the role in the third film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?

“I don’t know,” he previously said.”I haven’t gotten the call. If I do get the call, I’m on it. If I don’t get the call, that’s fine too.”

One project he will be part of is upcoming live-action/CGI hybrid movie, Strays, from the director of the excellent Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.

Wanda Vision season 1 is streaming on Disney+.
