Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit reported that the upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision had been pushed back to spring 2021. Today on Twitter, Kit issued a correction and said that the Marvel Studios produced show is still on track to come out in December.
It’s good to see that the series is on track to be released on time. Of course, this is counting on it being able to get shooting done.
Delays for Marvel Studios’ projects keep on coming. This time it’s for the Scarlet Witch and Vision series that will air on Disney+. According to The Hollywood Reporter WandaVision, which was slated to come out in December, will now arrive in Spring 2021.
The news was buried in another report the outlet broke today about the hiring of multiple directors for the upcoming Hawkeye show. The story said that “if things go as planned,” than WandaVision should arrive sometime in Spring 2021. With the rising of Coronavirus cases in the U.S., it’s been tough for studios to figure out when they can get back into production.
Funny enough, the series was initially scheduled to come out in early 2021. In February, though, it was announced during a Disney quarterly earnings call that the show had been moved up to December.
Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Paul Bettany (Vision) will return to return to reprise their popular big-screen roles. In June, it was reported that filming was supposed to begin this month in Los Angeles. It is not known if this has occurred yet or if it’s still even happening.
Plot details are as usually being kept heavily under wraps by the studio. At San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, it was revealed that the series will be somehow connected to the upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as the Scarlet Witch will make an appearance.
