New to Disney+ in January

Disney+ will make it a “Wanda”-ful new year with the January 15 premiere of one of 2021’s most anticipated original series, WandaVision.

It’s billed as “a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealised suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems”.

Digital Spy points out WandaVision will be the first Marvel release in 563 days.

The last project that the studio released was Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019 – their solo film Black Widow was supposed to be released earlier this year but has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This means that 2020 is the first year that Marvel Studios hasn’t released a movie since 2009 … WandaVision will be the first Marvel Studios series and it will launch Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel is planning to release 10 projects throughout 2021 including The Falcon (the original Disney+ series), The Winter Soldier and Spider-Man 3.

Wanda Maximoff and Vision also will feature in the first two episodes of another newcomer, Marvel Studios: Legends (January 8), which sets the scene for the superheroes and villains who will get their own series on Disney+.
