Scarlet Witch actress Elizabeth Olsen has provided a pretty big WandaVision update. The live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe show was officially announced at the Disney+ launch a few weeks ago, along with the Loki show and Falcon & Winter Soldier. Avengers: Endgame is about to hit theaters and fans are already starting to look forward to what comes next in the MCU's Phase 4 and beyond. With that being said, it's beginning to look like the small screen may provide some significant projects to look forward to while Phase 4 slowly starts to come together.
Elizabeth Olsen was interviewed on the red carpet of the Avengers: Endgame premiere earlier this week. The actress was asked about the upcoming WandaVision show and thought about her answer before giving out a pretty decent update on the highly anticipated project. As for where the story is going to come from, Olsen played coy. She explains.
"There's quite a few other comic books that we're pulling from and it's gonna be Wanda and the Vision and I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the '50s, and I think that's a good teaser. It's gonna be really fun. I'm really excited."
However, Elizabeth Olsen wasn't done there. When asked about when production on WandaVision will begin, Olsen said, "The fall. Paul (Bettany)and I are really excited. They have a great group of writers." In addition, the actress revealed the show will be made up of a "total of six hours," though she was unsure of how many episodes and the exact lengths at this time. But, that definitely confirms what Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has talked about in terms of being able to tell a specific story in a more in-depth way by using Scarlet Witch and Vision in the small screen format.
If WandaVision is aiming towards a 6-hour total, the rest of the MCU TV shows will more than likely follow suit. But, that is clearly speculation at this point in time since Disney+ has not made any official announcements in terms of episodes and length. With that being said, Kevin Feige may pull back the curtain this summer during the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The studio sat last summer out and fans are looking forward to some major TV and MCU Phase 4 announcements.
WandaVision could end premiering next summer if production ends up starting this fall. Disney+ is trying to get a lot of content finished in order to have it ready within its first year of streaming. Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian recently wrapped production and will be ready for the November launch date, which is a pretty quick turnaround. Lucasfilm and MCU fans are looking forward to some longer stories from some of the biggest franchises in the world.
