Yesterday, fans were treated to a first look at Marvel Studios / Disney+’s new reality bending series , WandaVision.

According to reports, the show’s original release date was set for around August this year, but with production still ongoing that release date has been pushed back until next year.
According to Murphy’s Multiverse , there is evidence that shows the “programming code” for the show currently has a release date for November 27th. Murphy’s Multiverse further explains that these “programming codes” are sections of data pertinent to a show/movie page that includes release dates currently set by the distributor. While a majority of fans have been holding out hope the series could arrive on the streaming service this year, it appears as if a 2021 debut has finally been confirmed.

Daniel Brühl will return as series villain Baron Zemo who was last seen in custody at the conclusion of Captain America: Civil War. The series is reportedly set to focus on Sam Wilson’s struggle with officially taking over as the new Captain America, as the government has appointed their own Captain America, Wyatt Russell’s John Walker / US Agent. In addition , Emily Van Camp’s Agent Carter, Georges St-Pierre as Georges Batroc will reprise their roles from previous films. In addition, Miki Ishikawa, Noah Mills, and Carl Lumbry have also been added to the cast in undisclosed roles.
