Marvel Studios’ much-anticipated Phase 4 starts with WandaVision in January 2021
After the long drought, Marvel Fans finally has a ray of hope. Marvel Studios WandaVision is finally kick-starting the MCU Phase 4 on 15 January 2021. The show would be the first-ever MCU series to debut on Disney+ thus making it a part of a larger universe. On Thursday, Marvel Studios and Disney announced WandaVision release date on social media website Twitter.
MCU’s last release was Spider-Man: Far From Home that culminated the MCU Phase 3 after the gala event that was Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Nonetheless, WandaVision release date is later than fans hoped. After the trailer dropped in September fans couldn’t contain the excitement.
Undoubtedly one of the quirkiest trailers ever WandaVision trailer blew fan’s minds. It amassed 20 Million+ views in the first 24 hours of its release. And soon the theories and rumours followed. The series stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision. Bettany told in an interview earlier this year, “I am such an admirer of Kevin Feige; he has taken such a risk with the show, and the concept of this show. It’s beautifully written by [Jac Schaeffer] and her staff of writers – and it is f-cking bonkers.”

The show takes places after the events of Avengers Endgame meaning Vision is officially dead. Fans wonder how he is back from the dead and there will certainly be answers in the show. Furthermore, fans believe the ‘House of M’ storyline from the comic books is at play.
In the comic book story Wanda uses her chaos magic to bring Vision back to life and also has two children with him Speed and Wiccan. This creates pocket realities and that destabilizes the Multiverse. While the Disney+ series clearly cover the ground for a resurrected vision and a new photo in EW shows Wanda pregnant for sure. Fans for sure know the series will directly connect to MCU Multiverse and Wanda who would be completely transformed to Scarlet Witch by the end of series will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The show itself is set to have multiple cameos in store it might even bring back some dead Avengers.
Wanda’s Transformation To Scarlet Witch
The six-episode long series will showcase how Wanda Maximoff transforms into full-blown Scarlet Witch and her use of chaos magic. The American sitcom-like setting of the show shows the pocket dimensions. This new aesthetic approach – from black and white to coloured – is not only exciting making the audience nostalgic but also gives us a great peek into the years gone by. Some theories goes as far as to affirm that Wanda will be sort of anti-hero in the Doctor Strange sequel as she rips open the Multiverse.
Along with Olsen and Bettany, WandaVision features Kathryn Hahn playing the couple’s nosy neighbour, Agnes. It also features the return of Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, a member of SWORD, and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. While Teyonah Parris is set to take on the role of older Monica Rambeau and is expected to take up the mantle of Specter down the line.
