Marvel’s first Disney Plus limited television series, WandaVision, is finally on its way ⁠— here is everything we know about the mind-bending first season, including plot details, the show’s 2020 release date, and the all-new trailer released at the 72nd Emmy Awards on September 20.

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, supernatural hero Wanda Maximoff was left mourning the loss of her lover, Vision. The Avengers had won against Thanos — at a very steep cost ⁠— and not many had lost as much as Russian heroine Wanda.

The new Disney Plus series, one of many unveiled by Disney ahead of its streaming service’s official launch, follows Wanda as she deals with, or fails to deal with, the loss of Vision, and all the fallout of Endgame’s universe-saving ‘Infinity War.’

Here’s everything we know about the new Marvel series ‘WandaVision,’ including its rumored release date, what the Emmys trailer means, and its MCU plot.

WandaVision release date

Disney has all-but confirmed WandaVision will arrive on its huge new streaming platform in mid-December. This shift forward is, in part, due to Falcon & the Winter Soldier’s release date being pushed back to “at least” 2021 for more shooting.

The streaming platform released its October and November slates, but WandaVision was nowhere to be seen. Apparently, the show will be added at a later date, however, after a fan tapped into the Disney code and found the release date.

According to this source, WandaVision will reportedly air its first episode on Friday, November 27.

The limited series is expected to air in a similar style to other Disney Plus shows, which means WandaVision episodes will premiere week-to-week on the platform.

The series will run for six episodes, Disney has previously confirmed.

WandaVision trailer

Up until late September 20, Marvels fans had only been given a tiny glimpse of WandaVision, in the Superbowl spot that also confirmed The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, as well as Loki’s brand-new spinoff Disney Plus series.

A proper, “official trailer” has finally been released. It shows Wanda and Vision living an idyllic suburban life, but something’s not quite right about it all. In fact, the hero duo “soon begin to suspect everything is not as it seems.”

Watch the new WandaVision trailer, which premiered during the Emmys, here:

The Emmys reveal has already hit 53,000,000 views, as of the evening of September 22. Deadline has suggested it’s “the highest 24-hour draw online ever for a streaming service’s series ad spot,” and is “in the league of the Avengers and Fast & Furious franchises.”

The new teaser reveals also came with a brand-new poster, released by Disney soon after the series’ official trailer. It showed black and white versions of Wanda and Vision smiling for the camera, with color seeping in on either side of the image.

Casting news

There have been very few official casting appointments for the 2020 series. Elizabeth Olsen will obviously be returning as Wanda Maximoff, as will Paul Bettany as Vision.

Other returning Marvel characters include Monica Rambeau (now played by Teyonah Parris), Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), and Randall Park (Jimmy Woo). Kathryn Han has also been cast in the WandaVision series as an unspecified neighbor.

There have also been some heavy rumors Wanda’s brother Pietro, known as Quicksilver in the comics, could also return. He was last played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and was killed by Ultron in the Battle of Sokovia.

What will WandaVision be about?

According to Disney Plus’ official listing, WandaVision will begin soon after the Avengers: Endgame finale. It’s “a blend of classic television, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” and will follow Wanda’s mind-bending journey post-Infinity War.

There are a few whacky elements to the show. Vision was actually killed by Thanos during his quest for the Infinity Stones in the MCU. The fact that he’s back alive ⁠— a fact referenced in the new Emmys trailer ⁠— is the question of the show.

“[We have] the opportunity to tell their story, and how more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision, Vision, and most importantly, reveal a name I’m not even sure has been said in the MCU yet: Scarlet Witch,” Kevin Fiege said.

“That’s what we play into with this show, in ways that are entirely fun, funny, somewhat scary, and will have repercussions for the entire future the MCU.”

House of M?

One potential storyline for the short series is the super-popular “House of M” saga from the Marvel comics. The comic series had eight issues, and focused around Scarlet Witch bending reality to recreate her lost children during a breakdown.

The “House of M” storyline crossed over into a host of comic book series at the time, even replacing the Earth-616 reality as the main world the superheroes inhabited for a time. An easter egg referencing the arc has already been found.

How does WandaVision affect the MCU?

Marvel has already confirmed that WandaVision will have “repercussions” for the whole of the cinematic universe heading into Phase 4. It is expected WandaVision will play a role as the prequel to Doctor Strange & the Multiverse of Madness.

Scarlet Witch has already been cast in the Benedict Cumberbatch-led sequel.

Marvel Studios
Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange are set to team up in the latter’s sequel movie in 2022.

Feige confirmed way back at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019 all the Disney+ shows, especially WandaVision, would “intersect with the movies in a very big way.”

“It’s the first long-form narrative Marvel Studios has done. They’ll be six episodes, eight episodes, 10 episodes with the actors from the films playing their characters,” he said.

“They’ll be changing, evolving, growing in those event series. Then, those changes will be reflected in their next film appearances.”

The Uncharted movie is the latest video game movie in development, and it actually looks like it’ll be faithful to the source material if some recent stills released by Sony are to be believed. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming film. 

The Uncharted movie has been in development hell for around 10 years now. After having Mark Wahlberg originally attached to the film to play Nathan Drake himself, the script and director underwent massive changes multiple times. Most thought the film would never be released.

Now, Sony is pushing full-steam ahead with Uncharted, which is set to star Tom Holland as the titular character. Filming is currently underway, but we still don’t have an extensive look at the film. Here’s everything we know about the movie based on the hit video game.

Uncharted casting and plot

As previously mentioned, Tom Holland has been cast as Nathan Drake, while Mark Wahlberg, who was once himself set to play that character, will now portray Sully, Nate’s mentor in the film.

Given the age of both the actors, most people seem to believe that Uncharted will be a prequel set long before the first game, Drake’s Fortune. Aside from this, however, we don’t know anything else about the plot.

On top of Holland and Wahlberg, we also know that Antonio Banderas has also been cast in the movie, although his role has yet to be announced.

Uncharted trailer

As of October 23, 2020, the trailer for Uncharted has not been released. While filming was originally set to be completed by this point, shutdowns at the beginning of the year caused Sony to delay production by a few months until everything was safe again.

Despite no trailer being available, we do have the first look at Holland as Drake and if the image is anything to go by, this film is going to be game-accurate in some regard. Given the fact that the studio has released the look, it might not be too much longer until we see the trailer. Nevertheless, this is all we have.

Uncharted release date

Currently, Uncharted is set to release in theaters on July 16, 2021. That being said, due to the state of the world right now, it’s always worth noting that this has a good chance of changing.

It could end up being delayed, it could end up going straight to digital, or it could simply stay the same. Right now, it’s too early to tell.
