The year has started off great for Scarlet Witch fans as Marvel Studios announced that their new series WandaVision is being moved to this year, 2020.
The upcoming series starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany is one of many shows from Marvel coming to Disney +.
The news was announced on Twitter showing the slate for this year along with the first promo art of the series showcasing Wanda and Vision in 50s attire.
Whilst the plot of WandaVision remains unclear at this time, Elizabeth Olsen did talk about the show in SDCC 2019. Olsen stated, “We’re gonna go deep, we’re gonna have lots of surprises, and we’re gonna finally understand Wanda Maximoff as the Scarlet Witch.”
WandaVision will also feature some returning MCU cast members such as Kat Dennings and Randall Park as well as new talent like Kathryn Hahn.
While unclear on the reason for the move to an earlier release date, it is possible it is because WandaVision is said to tie-in to the new Marvel film Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness set to release in 2021. Elizabeth Olsen will also reprise her role as the Scarlet witch for that movie.
It is clear that with WandaVision happening in 2020 and Multiverse of Madness happening in 2021 that Scarlet Witch will be an integral part of the MCU’s future.
It is possible that there may be more stories that include Wanda such as the famous House of M storyline as Marvel has now acquired the X-men.
Fans themselves also have a lot of questions for the new series and the moving to an earlier release date has them overjoyed that these questions will be answered earlier.
