I’ve made a correction to the article saying WandaVision is due to come out in 2020. Thanks to the Brandons for keeping me on my toes. https://t.co/Ju7vrSg6US

Our original post, based on that report, is below:
Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally supposed to be the first of two MCU shows on Disney+ this year. However, Disney+ has officially removed The Falcon and the Winter Soldier from its August release. Now, via The Hollywood Reporter, WandaVision has also been pushed back as well.
WandaVision will now hit Disney+ in Spring 2021. Marvel actually had the series in that release window last summer. However, the studio eventually shifted course and moved up the premiere to December. Back in March, the WandaVision cast and crew held a wrap party to celebrate the end of principal photography. This latest shuffle brings WandaVision a little bit closer to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which bows on March 25, 2022. The events of WandaVision’s first season will also tie into the Sorcerer Supreme’s upcoming sequel.
It remains to be seen if Marvel will also delay Loki. That series, which features the return of Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief, is also targeting a spring 2021 debut. In addition to Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s title characters, WandaVision will bring back a few other MCU favorites. That includes Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis and Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo. The show will also introduce Teyonah Parris as the grown-up Monica Rambeau. A younger version of Monica was previously played by Akira Akbar in Captain Marvel.
