When WandaVision debuted on the Disney+ streaming platform on January 15, 2021, it became the first Marvel project to grace screens with its presence in nearly 600 days.

The series, which features Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision, is a project unlike any Marvel has attempted before. It is partly an homage to the Avengers franchise and partly a love letter to retro sitcoms — it may also be opening up the Marvel multiverse for the first time.

Taking a cue from classic sitcom TV series from the 1950s and beyond, WandaVision has seen Wanda and Vision living out idealized suburban lives in Westview, New Jersey with a cast of characters both old and new.

We’ve seen MCU favorites like Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) and FBI Agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), plus a host of new cast members like “Nosy Neighbor” Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) and Dottie Jones (Emma Caulfield Ford).

Rumors abound that both of these characters are popular Marvel Comics characters — Salem witch Agatha Harkness and Mephisto, respectively.

At this point, the only thing Marvel fans know about WandaVision is that we really don’t have a clue what’s going on in Wanda’s vintage-inspired world (AKA “The Hex”).

As The Mandalorian viewers know all too well, one of the toughest parts of being part of any fandom in the social media age is seeing spoilers almost immediately after an episode airs. Following a major reveal in Kevin Feige’s WandaVision Episode 5 (“On a Very Special Episode…”), Twitter users were especially frustrated.

One user vehemently wrote about the WandaVision leak:

I swear to god if I open up twitter trends and get spoiled for wandavision AGAIN I’LL-

Kyle posted:

I really enjoy the show, the reveal was something I didn’t think I’d see. But I legit will be unfollowing people who spoil stuff from now on, including people who spoil and blocking people who make spoiler articles before 8am.

Another social media user noted that if people get spoiled, it’s really on them:

someone on tik tok got mad about a wandavision spoiler though the caption & video said SPOILER like if u read that and continued watching… that’s on you babes

While this may be true, some people can’t avoid social media entirely due to work or other reasons. If you’ve struggled with avoiding spoilers for WandaVision, The Mandalorian, or another popular TV series yourself, Twitter has come to your rescue.

Some users have discovered fantastic internet browser extensions that will block trending topics, thereby allowing Marvel and Star Wars fans to avoid spoilers about their favorite weekly-release shows.

Liam Dryden shared the Chrome “Hide Twitter Trends” extension, which a commenter noted is also available on Firefox:

Apropos of nothing today, I just found and downloaded a Chrome extension that hides Twitter trends. ENJOY NOT HAVING WANDAVISION SPOILED FOR YOU
