Part of the big appeal about Disney’s streaming service of Disney+ is that in the next few years we’re going to start to see more Marvel live-action series. Unlike the Netflix run of such programs as “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” however, the Marvel series on Disney+ will be based on characters already established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And not the minor ones. We’re talking about more adventures of Falcon & Winter Soldier, Loki, and many more. While “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” is set to debut this year, it was thought of that being the only Marvel series we’d see this year. It turns out we’re getting one more.
Disney confirmed over Twitter that “WandaVision,” a show which will feature the further adventures of the romantic coupling of Wanda (aka Scarlett Witch) and Vision, will debut a year earlier than expected. The show was scheduled for a 2021 release date but it has now been bumped up to 2020. The show will feature Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany both reprising their hero roles from their appearances in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
So…what exactly is this show about? Is it a prequel to the events of Infinity War? Is it a side story? Alternate reality? We can’t say for sure yet as this show is being kept under such a tight lock and key all we have to go off of is some retro 1950s concept art. Disney and Marvel are fully committed to keeping this show a secret right up until its debut. We’ll just have to wait and see.
