Marvel's WandaVision: First Reactions Coming This Weekend

Marvel Studios was forced into an 18-month wait between the end of Phase 3 and the beginning of Phase 4 thanks to the worldwide pandemic, but that wait is finally coming to an end in just a few days.

January 15 will bring the debut of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first Disney+ show, WandaVision , centered around Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany's long-standing MCU couple .

The promotional tour for this new series is kicking into high-gear with the premiere in such close proximity as Marvel Studios releases new interviews and TV spots on an almost daily basis. Included in this is the recent Elizabeth Olsen late night TV interview where she debuted the first full clip from the show, featuring Wanda and Vision spooking each other in their bedroom.

The next week should hold even more teases of what's coming in this wacky new adventure...


According to a new Twitter release from Steven Weintraub, the editor-in-chief at Collider, the media junket for WandaVision on Disney+ is taking place the weekend of January 8 to January 10 for interviews with the cast and crew. The social media embargo lifts on Saturday, January 9, at 9:00 am PST, and the review embargo lifts on Thursday, January 14, at 9:00 am PST.


Although the plot of WandaVision's first three episodes will remain a secret until they premiere, this is going to bring excitement to fans everywhere as a select few people watch and critique the introduction to this series.

Social media reactions for premieres like this are usually very vague and used to build hype for when they debut in full, but everything reported for WandaVision thus far is setting the show up to be an instant hit . The first three episodes will most likely explore Wanda and Vision's lives in the 1950s through about the 1970s, and the hype is already building to see what arises from the media junket.

The interviews will likely feature the core cast and crew of WandaVision , and it wouldn't come as a shock if Marvel CCO Kevin Feige took part as well considering this is the debut project of Phase 4. The weekend's social media reactions will be a precursor to spoiler-free reviews coming later in the week, and the story will start to reveal itself in full when WandaVision premieres on Disney+ on January 15.
