The Marvel Cinematic Universe is returning in less than a week with WandaVision, and the world is ready for every second of it.
This upcoming Friday, January 15, Marvel Studios will join the Disney+ streaming world for the first time as it releases the very first project in Phase 4 of the MCU, WandaVision. First introduced to the world nearly two years ago, this series faced a long wait for its arrival due to the worldwide pandemic, causing a nearly unprecedented 18-month gap in releases.
The promotional tour is going at 100 miles/hour as the cast and crew of this show discuss their experience bringing it to life and tease what the Marvel fandom should expect when the show arrives in full. While the series is still under wraps for most people in the world, there are a very select few for which that is not the case.
Thanks to the WandaVision press junket this weekend, select media outlets and personnel have watched the first three episodes of Marvel Studios’ first ever Disney+ series. Some of the reactions are straight ahead.

Even with only three episodes out in the world, and even though it’s only been seen by a few, it appears that WandaVision is not only living up to the hype, but exceeding it. No spoilers have been revealed to the world yet, but it’s becoming certain that the show will be the hottest topic of the entertainment world for the next nine weeks or longer.
The first two episodes of WandaVision will begin streaming on Disney+ on January 15, 2021. Are you excited for the new show? Let us know in the comment section or over on our social media!
