WandaVision will have more episodes than it was originally going to put out. Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first show, WandaVision has been under wraps so as to hide the plot from fans.
In true Marvel fashion, they have successfully done that like no television show before. The only plot revealed was in the teasers and the posters released. Disney is gearing up for the release of the show on their streaming service.
However, still so much of it has been hidden that there is not much for fans to break down including the episode count of the show. The show’s budget is a whopping $150 million which made fans assume that the show will be shorter. According to a recent post on Disney Latino, it has hinted at an eight-week run.
Although nothing has been confirmed yet as the show’s premiere date comes nearer. But now, Disney has revealed how many episodes WandaVision is going to have. According to the press release by Disney, the show will consist of nine episodes.
The MCU show will debut weekly just like The Mandalorian. WandaVision will end on March 5, 2021. It is alleged that each episode will include a different era of sitcoms. The show ranges from the 1960s all the way to the 2000s.
WandaVision’s episode is more than expected is exciting. This gives fans much more perspective of the two characters since 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. It will also be the first project released by Marvel in over a year. the show will be kicking off a banner year for Marvel Studios.
Marvel Will Be Releasing Shows Back-to-Back
The studio is set to release four films which are set to hit the theaters this year. Marvel will release Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings; Eternals, and Spider-man 3 this year. 2021 will also witness MCU shows kicking off this year. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, and Ms. Marvel will also be kicking off this year.
And obviously, the episode counts of any of these highly-anticipated shows are not revealed. However, if we base it on WandaVision, it might be around the same number of episodes. Marvel is set to have a year full of steady streaming content which will hit the screens almost every week of this year.
Fans are extremely thrilled to move into Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Elizabeth Olsen had revealed that WandaVision will be exploring more of Scarlet Witch’s backstory. The character of Wanda Maximoff has been one of the supporting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the end of Phase 2.
She has had multiple big moments on the big screen, however, she was not the only one in the spotlight. That is now changing with the expansion of Marvel Universe with Disney+ as the launch of WandaVision nears. It also features Paul Bettany as Vision and will be out early next year.
Marvel Studios, as usual, has kept a lot of details under wraps when it comes to the show’s story. The eye-catching factor of the show, so far, has been the different decades of sitcom TV shows. There is some possibility of altered reality and setup for Scarlet Witch to return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
WandaVision Will Explore Scarlet Witch’s Backstory
However, fans are extremely intrigued and anxious as they wait to know what the show is about. The show will shed more light on Wanda’s past. Emmy magazine had published a feature on WandaVision which included new quotes from star Elizabeth Olsen and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Elizabeth described the original meeting she had with Kevin about the idea to make WandaVision happen as a Disney+ show. According to the actress, the show will be exploring where Scarlet Witch originally came from.
She said, “Kevin told me he wanted to merge two different comic series as inspiration. He explained the series would show how Wanda is originally from an Eastern European country and grew up on American black-market products like television.”
