WandaVision will get the 2021 launch date on Disney + as quickly as new movement posters and pictures arrive
Marvel Studios and Disney + have announced that WandaVision will premiere with a new teaser in early 2021. The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series was originally believed to premiere later this month, but now fans just have to wait a little longer. As it stands, The Mandalorian is back with Season 2 and it has already received rave reviews and a lot of attention on Disney +, just as all Marvel shows will when they release.

WandaVision will premiere exclusively on Disney + on Friday, January 15, 2021. The episodes are released once a week, just like The Mandalorian. The show is a mix of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two overpowering beings who lead idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that not everything is what is it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman, while Jac Schaeffer is the chief author. Although we have the new teaser and have seen the first footage before, the details of the show are still kept top secret.
When it comes to keeping secrets, Marvel Studios may be the best in the business if you look at their rabid fan base. With that said, they also know how to tease really well. For example, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced in a new interview that WandaVision will directly host the events for Doctor Strange in the Multiversum of Madness, due to be released in 2022. How all of this is connected is not confirmed at the moment, although MCU fans have their theories.
Much like the first trailer for WandaVision, the latest teaser focuses on the classic sitcom vibe of the show. No actual footage is shown, just an old school television with Wanda and Vision flickering through various sitcoms from across history. When developing the series, Marvel Studios reached out to Dick Van Dyke, who told them that the key to success is making sure that everything that happens on screen can happen in real life. It's unclear how the showrunners took this advice and wrapped it in a comic book story, but it shows the attention to detail the studio goes to when creating projects.
WandaVision will take over The Mandalorian on Fridays while we wait for The Falcon and Winter Soldier and the Loki series. Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie's show is believed to premiere at some point next year as well, although it's not clear when. With that in mind, it looks like Marvel Studios and Disney + could bring out a new series every 6 to 8 weeks in 2021, which would be huge for fans who haven't received new MCU material in 2020. You can check out the WandaVision teaser above, thanks to the Marvel Studios Twitter account.
