Earlier in this year, Disney finally gave us some details of about its upcoming Disney Plus streaming service. Among the new series it announced, WandaVision took centerstage
It will be one of the new Marvel Cinematic Universe series that will be on the service, starring two of the most prominent Avenger characters that began to get fleshed out in the latter MCU movies, Scarlet Witch (also known as Wanda Maximoff) and Vision. Details are scarce right now, but as the Disney Plus launch gets closer to its release later this year, we are learning more details.
Here is everything you need to know about WandaVision.
- When is it coming out?
- What is plot for the WandaVision?
- Who is going to be in WandaVision?
- What's up with the title?
There are spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame.
All the big details
WandaVision release date
Disney has not set a tentative release date for WandaVision. As it stands, Disney Plus is slated to launch November 3, but Disney has confirmed that the series won't be available at launch. That puts its release date somewhere in 2020.
In an interview with Variety, Scarlet Witch actress Elizabeth Olsen confirmed that the series will begin shooting in the fall of 2019, so that also matches with the 2020 release date. As for when exactly, we're crossing our fingers for the first half of the year, but it could premiere in the latter half as well, meaning we are in for a long wait.
Prior to the announcement of Disney Plus, we knew absolutely no details of the WandaVision series. Then we got the unexpected title. But most recently, the cast has been opening up about the series, giving us more important details.
In the same interview with Variety, Olsen revealed that the series will take place in the 1950s. According to Olsen, Disney showed off a photo of her and Paul Bettany (Vision) at the Disney Plus launch event.
Endgame introduced time travel to the MCU for the first time. This is likely how Scarlet Witch and Vision make it to the 1950s. More so, last we saw of Vision, he was killed by Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. It'll be intersting to see how Marvel brings him back through time travel or possibly with Shuri saving some of his consciousness during the events of Infinity War. Neither has been confirmed, but those seem like the most plausible ways to bring back Vision.
Beyond that, Olsen also revealed the series will be six hours long. If we're using normal logic, that likely means it'll span six episodes and expand their budding relationship.
The title gives you all the details we know about the cast. Elizabeth Olson as Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision are the only actors on board for the series. As the casts is fleshed out, we'll update the posts with relevant information.
Why the silly title?
Your guess is as good as ours. It's basically a mash-up of Wanda and Vision's names. What is odd is that Wanda goes by Scarlet Witch as her superhero alter ego. It may have been smarter to incorporate that name, but if you've seen any of the movies involving both characters, you know Vision refers to Scarlet Witch as Wanda.
Regardless, the name still seems silly to us. We doubt that'll ever change.
