Marvel is about to go ham this year. And by ham I mean, they're about to drop a plethora of juicy media. Movie wise we've got Black Widow dropping May 7th, Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings July 9th, November 5th we see the arrival of the Eternals, and for Christmas we've got Spider-Man 3. I mean it's December 17th, but close enough. Then on the Disney+ front we have great TV shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, and What If...?. Not to mention Ms. Marvel, and Hawkeye with unconfirmed release dates. All of that said, the first tasty morsel we have to look forward to is Wandavision, with the first episode dropping January 15th.
This is Marvel’s first Disney+ TV series and it looks like thangs are about to get weird and we already have a ton of questions. Like what's happened to Wanda? How is Vision alive? Where are they? And who's the mysterious voice reaching out to Wanda in the trailer? Doctor Strange? WandaVision, could be that catalyst that flips the MCU onto it's head while introducing the acquired FOX properties.
WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer is on record as saying, “We find Wanda and Vision living a blissful suburban existence, trying to keep their powers under wraps.” All while seemingly having their lives playout over time and through the lenses of old timey sitcoms. What fray is this? Such an interesting way to tell a story. What a refreshing way to present a superhero series from jump. Things like this usually are a 1 off? Or done way later in a series' lifespan. I remember when Xena did something along these lines (if memory serves me correct. And it was a damn great couple episodes.)
According to Gamestop, WandaVision drops every Friday at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET. And that's some Nick At Night stuff that I can get with. They also have the entire release schedule, as seen below:
