Why is Wandavision in black and white?

On the show, we see that Wanda Maximoff and Vision are dropped into vintage Americana, where they attempt to live a seemingly ordinary life living in a white bread neighbourhood. While the pair is trying their level best to hide their superpowers, they do let it slip every now and then, to the delight of the studio audience.

When does Wandavision take place?

A report in Esquire reveals that Marvel aimed to go for a more sit com like feel for the show. Hence first two episodes were shot in front of a live studio audience. Given that Wanda and Vision are trying to keep in lowkey in an America of the 50s, the black and white theme does help to emphasize on the time period. Moreover Matt Shakman, who is the director of WandaVision has helped stated in an interview with Esquire that this MCU series is aiming to recreate the whole era of sitcoms.
