Marvel have finally confirmed the release date for the WandaVision Disney+ TV series.
2020 has been a long year for us all, and Marvel Studios fans have has to go an entire year without an MCU fix. Earlier this year, rumours began to swirl and fans became hopeful that we’d get just a glimpse of the MCU before the year was out with Disney+ original WandaVision which had heavily been rumoured for a December 2020 release date.
Alas, the rumours were proven to be false as Marvel Studios and Disney have now officially revealed the air date of the series and sadly it’s not 2020. It looks like MCU fans are going to have to hold on just a little longer through Christmas and into the New Year because we’re not getting to see WandaVision until January 15, 2021.
We were treated to a trailer back in September during the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards and the series promises to be something special as we see a blend of classic MCU action with the warped reality of sitcoms across the decades.
A newly revealed synopsis for the series reads: “‘WandaVision’ is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer.“
WandaVision stars returning cast members Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Kat Dennings and Randall Park as Wanda Maximoff, Vision, Darcy Lewis and Jimmy Woo respectively. New cast additions include Kathryn Hahn as “Agnes” and Teyonah Parris as an adult Monica Rambeau who last appeared as a child portrayed by Akira Akbar in Captain Marvel.
