Disney+has fourMarvellive-action showsin the works:Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, andHawkeye.WandaVisionstars Vision and Scarlet Witch and is expected to arrive in 2020, following the Falcon/Winter Soldier show.

Each Disney+ spinoff is a big-budget miniseries, running from six to eight episodes. Heres everything we know aboutWandaVision, from casting updates to news about the shows overall concept, which ties into the Avengers franchise.

WandaVision cast

Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen are set to reprise their roles, with more casting announcements expected before the show starts filming in fall 2019.

WandaVision creative team

Jac Schaeffer will serve as showrunner. She has a co-writing credit on Captain Marvel and the upcoming Black Widow solo movie, making her one of the key writers for Marvel’s next phase.

Elsewhere, she’s best known for writing and directing the 2009 sci-fi romcomTiMER, about a matchmaking device that counts down to when the wearer meets their soulmate. It’s a witty and original movie that showcases Schaeffer’s skill for observational drama and smart sci-fi worldbuilding, making her a very promising choice for a show about the relationship between a witch and a robot.

WandaVision plot

This section includes spoilers forAvengers: Endgame.

The big question hanging over Marvel’s Disney+ shows iswhen they take place. Our best guess it thatFalcon and the Winter Soldier takes place afterEndgame, butHawkeye could theoretically happen at any point in his MCU timeline, and Loki is rumored to be a prequel. (Actually,Loki could even take place in a separate timeline, considering what happens with him inEndgame.)

MARVEL PHASES: THE MCU MOVIE TIMELINE

WandaVision is the one show that seeminglydoes have a fixed timeframe: sometime betweenCaptain America: Civil War andAvengers: Infinity War. Both characters were introduced inAvengers: Age of Ultron, and they fell in love sometime betweenCivil War andInfinity War. Since Vision dies inInfinity War,that gives us a year or so to explore their relationship. However, Elizabeth Olsen offered a surprising detail in an April 2019 interview withVariety, suggesting thatWandaVision could take place in the 1950sor potentially include time travel, anyway.

Theres quite a few other comic books that were pulling from… I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the 50s, said Olsen.

Avengers: Infinity War/Marvel

CouldWandaVision eventake place in an alternate universe? That happens all the time in the comics, after all. And since Scarlet Witch is literally magic, this show has a lot of creative leeway to get weird.

WandaVision release date

With Disney+ launching in Nov. 2019, this show is expected to arrive sometime in 2020.
