Marvel’s ‘WandaVision’ Still On Track For 2020 Premiere

Marvel’s film slate has been completely reworked due to COVID-19, and we’ve seen the same thing happen with their upcoming Disney+ shows. Just a couple of days ago it was revealed that Falcon and the Winter Soldier would no longer meet its August release date, due to delays caused by the outbreak. While other series such as Hawkeye keep progressing, we’re also learning that another, WandaVision, will debut as planned.

In Deadline’s report, it was confirmed that WandaVision is likely to make its December 2020 premiere as planned, despite all of the production headaches others have faced. With so much uncertainty right now it’s looking very likely this will be the first Marvel Disney+ series to air. That’s interesting because the MCU is so connected, that moving one domino out of place could topple the whole thing. For instance, WandaVision is meant to be a lead-in to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda “Scarlet Witch” Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision, as she deals with the fallout from Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. She lost years of her life having been snapped out of existence, but worse than that, she lost her lover, the android Vision. The series will show her creating a weird 1950s sitcom version of reality, in what looks to be a manifestation of her reality-warping powers through her fractured mind.
