Marvel’s Disney+ sitcom is confirmed to be back on track for a December release…
Marvel fans can be forgiven for fearing the worst for the current crop of new shows scheduled to be released on Disney Plus this year. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has practically decimated the 2020 release schedule and both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier were among the first projects to find themselves forced into delay by the crisis.
With The Falcon and The Winter Soldier already having missed its original August release date – we were all expecting WandaVision to follow suit and be cast into the abyss like the rest of the Hollywood schedule – but fear not Marvel fans. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. A recent promo released on the official Disney+ Twitter feed has all but confirmed that WandaVision is finally back on track and will make its debut on the streamer before the end of the year.
This is the way… to get pumped for the coming months. Start streaming favorites like Hidden Figures, X2, and Big, plus Originals like The Right Stuff from @NatGeo, Clouds, @MarvelStudios’ WandaVision, and a new season of The Mandalorian. Coming soon on #DisneyPlus. pic.twitter.com/PrS1LovFq4

And if that isn’t enough to have you clearing your December TV schedule, a recent press release confirms the studios’ intent to release before the end of the year.
With the first anniversary of Disney+ on November 12, the service will kick off its second year with even more original entertainment premiering in late 2020 including, but not limited to: “Black Beauty,” a contemporary film adaptation of the classic story starring Mackenzie Foy, Iain Glen, and Claire Forlani and the voice of Kate Winslet, “Inside Pixar,” a never-before-seen look into Pixar Animation Studios’ creative process, “On Pointe,” an original docu-series about students of the School of American Ballet and “The Nutcracker” performance at Lincoln Center, and “WandaVision,” the upcoming original series from Marvel Studios.
Starring Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision, the upcoming series blends classic sitcoms with the MCU for a story that finds two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives, only to begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. In addition to Olsen and Bettany, WandaVision will also star Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, a character introduced in Captain Marvel, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as FBI agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn as a “nosy neighbor.”
This is welcome news. Just as we bid farewell to the second season of The Mandalorian – WandaVision will be on hand to fill the void and drag us down the Marvel rabbit hole once again. And with the release of Black Widow looking increasingly unlikely – at least we’ll have some awesome entertainment to look forward to during those cold winter nights.
