It was reported in 2018 that a selection of characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be getting their own series on the streaming service Disney+. As excited as I am to see Loki up to his usual tricks and Sam and Bucky adjust to a world without Steve Rogers, the show that I can't wait to watch is WandaVision, which will focus on Wanda Maximoff and her role as the Scarlet Witch, alongside Vision. Both Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will be returning to the MCU to reprise their roles.

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Scarlet Witch's telekinetic abilities arguably make her the strongest Avenger after the deaths of Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff, as well as the departure of Steve Rogers. With The Falcon and the Winter Soldier delayed, Marvel fans expected the series to premiere later than planned. However, ComicBook.com reports that WandaVision is still due to come out in 2020.

After The Hollywood Reporter incorrectly reported that the premiere of WandaVision had been pushed back to spring 2021, reporter Borys Kit clarified the mistake and said that the series will still premiere in 2020 as planned.

Olsen previously announced that the series is set in the 1950s, and Bettany told IGN at the D23 Expo that WandaVision, is "definitely the oddest of all the Marvel endeavors so far," adding that the "scripts are amazing." WandaVision sounds like it's going to be a great addition to the MCU!
