A new era arrives.
After a bit of delay, Marvel’s WandaVision finally gets a premiere date on Disney+. This series is slated to be the first from Marvel Studios to launch on the streaming platform.
Taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, WandaVision will see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff and Vision respectively. It all begins when Wanda and Vision find themselves living idealized suburban lives, but then starts to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Interestingly enough, WandaVision wasn’t supposed to be the first Marvel series scheduled to show on Disney Plus. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was scheduled ahead but had to be pushed back due to necessary reshoots. This bumps up WandaVision’s premiere schedule, following hot on the heels of The Mandalorian’s return for its second season.
The complete plotline for WandaVision remains unclear, leaving fans guessing what’s in store for this hotly anticipated show based on its trailer, which looked like an ode to popular 80s shows and sitcoms. Joining Olsen and Bettany is a cast that’s no stranger to the Avengers World. This includes Randall Park as Jimmy Woo, an FBI agent — better known as Scott Lang’s parole officer — who we first saw in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Teyonah Parris also comes back as Monica Rambeau, who we know as a young girl in the 90s-set Captain Marvel. Another exciting addition is Kat Dennings who plays Darcy Lewis — aka Darcy the intern — from Thor movies, the assistant to Natalie Portman’s character. A completely new addition to the world of Marvel is Kathryn Hahn, who’s said to be the nosy neighbor that fits in well with the sitcom-like setting of WandaVision.
Mark your calendars now, ladies and gents. Marvel’s WandaVision drops next year, January 15, only on Disney+.
Where to Watch or Stream WandaVision
To start watching WandaVision, you’ll simply have to subscribe to a Disney+ account. It’s important to note, however, that Disney Plus has stopped providing a 7-day free trial offer in Australia and in other countries where it’s live.
A subscription to Disney+ Australia costs $8.99/month. You also have the option of signing up for a whole year for only $89.99 and save $17. Both packages give you the exact same offering when it comes to content, devices, streaming quality, and a number of simultaneous streams. If you compare Disney+ to other Australian streaming providers, you’ll also find it to cost much less than the likes of Stan and Netflix.
