Disneyannounced on Thursday that the first MCU Phase 4 adventure will not launch in 2020, contrary to recent speculation and Disney’s own promotions.
- The WandaVision TV series will be released on Disney+ on January 15th, 2021.
- No other Marvel movies or TV shows are scheduled to debut in 2020 anymore, making it the first year since 2009 without any new Marvel media.

We’re going to reportedly witness the mental breakdown of Wanda, as the young woman is still coping with the recent losses in her life. Wanda will try to build a universe where she could have a family with Vision, whom she saw die twice in Infinity War.

The TV series is also expected to introduce the new organization to replace SHIELD and offer the first teaser for Marvel’s mutants. Until now, Marvel could not use the X-Men in its Avengers universe, as Fox controlled the movie rights for that franchise. But
With all that in mind, and considering the exciting rumors about the ties between WandaVision and Doctor Strange 2, January 15th can’t come soon enough. It would have been great to have Phase 4 open with the Black Widow film that we were denied. But WandaVision might be more than a decent choice for the first Marvel adventure of Phase 4.
