WandaVision is here! After a long wait for any Marvel content (at least partially thanks to the pandemic) the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicks off Phase Four with its first TV entry, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as their Avengers characters in an unusual sitcom story.
The show is the first original Marvel TV series on Disney Plus but certainly not the last, with several planned for this year alone that will all play into upcoming movies in the juggernaut franchise – and now the first two episodes have been released, teasing a strange TV sitcom world that appears to have trapped the lead characters.
In order to watch Marvel’s WandaVision, you’ll need a Disney+ subscription. Sign up for £5.99 per month or £59.99 for a full year. And if you want to know how to watch the Marvel movies in order, we’ve got you covered.
For now, read on for everything you need to know about the WandaVision release schedule.
When does WandaVision premiere on Disney+?
Marvel’s WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on Friday 15th January 2021, launching with two episodes to really hit the ground running.
From now on, new episodes of WandaVision will be released every Friday over the next eight weeks, leading up to an epic finale in early March (the series has nine episodes total lasting about six hours collectively).
And while the show may start off small with its quirky sitcom parody, director Matt Shakman told RadioTimes.com the episodes will get longer and more action-packed as they go along.
“We’ve always been describing it as a mix of classic sitcom and large-scale Marvel action and I think that’s very true, it’s an accurate way to talk about the show,” he said.
“And it’s also been something that [Marvel Studios head] Kevin Feige has been saying since the beginning, is that one of the things he loves so much about this show is that it’s just so full of surprises. And when it decides to go big, it goes big.”
What time will WandaVision release on Disney+ UK?
WandaVision episodes are expected to launch on Disney+ UK at 8:00AM (GMT) on Fridays, as was the case with the service’s previous sci-fi epic: The Mandalorian.
The Star Wars spin-off was released more or less simultaneously worldwide, with Americans getting the episodes at midnight PT and 3:00 AM ET, while fans in Australia got to watch them at 6:00 PM on Fridays.
How many episodes are in WandaVision?
As noted above, WandaVision is set to have nine episodes total released over eight weeks (after the first two episodes were released on the same day), adding up to about six hours of content.
Previously, it had been reported that the series would have six episodes, but director Matt Shakman explained to us that this was a misunderstanding.
“Nothing changed, I think actually what was said earlier is that it would be a roughly six hour event series,” he told RadioTimes.com.
“So people then of course made their own conclusions about episodes, and it became known as six episodes. But no, the plan has always been nine episodes.”
