WandaVision’s Kat Dennings drops hint over possible Disney+ release date

WandaVision actor Kat Dennings says Disney are ‘trying’ to get the new Marvel series out before the end of the year, leaving fans unsure when we’ll be able to tune in.

WandaVision promises to be a unique blend of classic American sitcoms and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, it follows Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda and Paul Bettany’s Vision as they live ideal suburban lives – but soon realize that not everything is as it seems.

There’s currently no official release date for the upcoming Disney+ miniseries, despite the fact that there’s been plenty of hype over the last few months and even a trailer released.

Some fans hoped it would arrive in November, but it wasn’t included in Disney’s preview of the month’s new additions.

When is WandaVision coming to Disney+?

A December release now seems the most likely. Season 2 of The Mandalorian will come to an end on December 18, leaving a gap in the streaming service’s schedule for original offerings, which WandaVision will fill nicely.

But a new interview between Entertainment Tonight and Kat Dennings, who will reprise her role as Thor’s Darcy Lewis in WandaVision, has seemingly put a question mark next to a 2020 release.

“It’s coming out pretty soon,” Dennings said. When asked if we can expect a December release for WandaVision, she replied, “That’s what I’ve heard, but I also don’t know anything. It could [change]. But as far as I know, they’re going to try and get it out this year.”

The use of the word “try” has left fans slightly concerned that WandaVision could be held back until 2021. Of course, it could also be the case that Disney has everything under control and is simply keeping the release a secret, even from the show’s stars. Hopefully, it’s the latter.

Elsewhere in the interview, Dennings said she couldn’t reveal too much about her character’s storyline in the new series, but did tease: “I was thrilled and it was somewhat of a surprise what they planned for her. I can’t say anything [else].”

Bizarre Pokemon Journeys scene goes viral

In the November 27 episode of the Pokemon Journeys anime, Ash and Goh both participate in an eating contest. The competition has Trainers seeing whose ‘mon can consume the most food in the shortest time possible.

However, things took a cruel turn when the final dish served was a cuisine in the shape of Torchic. Blaziken’s appetite quickly turned sour at the thought of eating something shaped like his own species.

The Gen III character then stood up and quit the contest after shedding a tear. The incredibly strange cannibalism-like dilemma went viral after being uploaded to Reddit on November 30.

While the Torchic are technically a dessert item, the scene left some fans feeling disturbed or sympathetic towards the Pokemon’s plight. “I feel you Blaziken, being forced to eat your kind is cruel,” one fan wrote. Another user exclaimed “Who’s the sick b****rd that decided to try to make a Blaziken eat Torchics?”

Pokemon fans react to the disturbing anime scene on Reddit.

Despite only having aired in Japan, the scene quickly spread online as the community found it both be hilarious and creepy. Popular artist ‘popemadara‘ made a comedic drawing that went viral on Twitter that depicts other Pokemon in the same dilemma as Blaziken.

While it’s true that people eat human-shaped edibles called gingerbread men, the Torchic food item was disturbingly detailed. If nothing else, the situation showed that the Fire-type monster has a softer side.

Pokemon Journeys is currently still airing in Japan, however North American viewers can catch the first half of the series now on Netflix which is broken up into Part 1 and 2.
