The saga to bring WandaVision to the small screen may have hit fans with yet another blast of reality.
For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as is the case with dozens of other mainstream franchises, this year has been largely a bust thanks to the pandemic. The worldwide shutdown completely halted filming for a six-month stretch, and with so much new content announced to the fans, the wait for that content’s release increased seemingly by the day.
Marvel Studios has one of the most expansive upcoming slates of projects, consisting of eight confirmed movies and eight confirmed Disney+ series in the MCU’s Phase 4. The first of these projects to release will be WandaVision on Disney+, which is already proving to be one of the craziest properties that the MCU has ever created. It’s been advertised as the only MCU project to release in 2020, but even that may be put into jeopardy thanks to a new social media blast.
The Clues To WandaVision’s Release
The Direct reported on a conversation from Twitter user @cinemAddikt, which reveals a chat session with Disney+ customer support in Latin America, that states WandaVision has been delayed in the area until January 2021.
The translated tweet and chat message says this:
DISNEY + LATIN AMERICA INFORMATION!
Today I contacted Disney + customer service about the content and they said the following:
– We will have all 31 seasons of The Simpsons on November 17.
– WandaVision will premiere in JANUARY
– We will have Avatar and The Rebel Novice
Yes, they are looking to promote the Disney classics, but of course there will be much more content, as previously mentioned, like The Simpsons, we’ll have the Marvel movies and series; WandaVision premieres in January. National Geographic documentaries, etc.
While this feels like another major downer upon the first read, this shouldn’t be an immediate reason to panic over yet another delay to the MCU. Many times, new major releases end up delayed in different locations all over the world after usually premiering in countries like the USA initially. This is currently the case with Disney+’s The Mandalorian, whose second season has premiered the first two episodes in the USA but is delayed in countries like Spain and in other parts of the globe.
While it’s still sad that Latin America’s wait for Marvel’s return is still at least another two months, fans are still hopeful that new MCU content will still arrive by the end of 2020. Multiple reports have stated that Disney is still planning on this release timeframe, and one of the series’ stars, Kat Dennings, has reconfirmed that this is what Disney still wants to do.
Now, it’s just a game of wait-and-see as the MCU fandom anticipates the start of the franchise’s new era on Disney+. What are you most looking forward to in WandaVIsion? Let’s talk about it in the comment section below or over on Twitter!
