WandaVision (January 15)

January 2021 begins with a bang on Disney Plus with the debut of WandaVision. This is the first TV show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that’s being produced directedly by Marvel Studios. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their MCU roles of Wanda Maximoff and The Vision. However, this odd romantic couple (she’s a witch, he’s an android) seems to be stuck in a world that is replicating TV sitcoms through the ages. What’s going on? Also, how will this affect the rest of the MCU? New episodes of this six-part series will be released weekly on Disney Plus starting January 15.

One week beforehand, on January 8, the service debuts two episodes of Marvel Studios: Legends, which will look back at the MCU history of Vision and Wanda.
