As Marvel devotees are doubtless conscious, Disney+’s WandaVision gained’t be the final challenge to characteristic Scarlet Witch. Moderately, Elizabeth Olsen’s character is confirmed to seem in the MCU’s forthcoming Physician Unusual sequel, too.
Which, naturally, begs the query: Will WandaVision‘s 9 episodes (premiering Friday, Jan. 15) be essential to understanding Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity?
As Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige explains to TVLine, “‘required studying’ will not be one thing that’s enjoyable once you wish to activate the TV or go to a film. We attempt to make all of our films, and now reveals, stand alone and work collectively.”
After varied COVID-related delays, Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity is (for now) slated to hit theaters in March 2022, greater than a yr after WandaVision airs its finale. And except for Olsen’s involvement with the Physician Unusual sequel — which can even have direct ties to the subsequent Spider-Man movie, swinging into theaters December 2021 — Teyonah Parris will seem as an grownup model of Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel 2, following her stint as that very same character in WandaVision.
Nonetheless, Feige maintains that Marvel’s upcoming movies must be viewer-friendly for all ranges of fandom, no matter whether or not you’ve seen the studio’s assorted Disney+ collection.
“The problem is making them work for each forms of viewers — viewers who observe every little thing we do, and the rather more informal viewers who simply heard one thing good about it and wish to test it out,” he says. “And that’s what we’ll proceed to do.”
WandaVision drops with two episodes on Friday, Jan. 15, adopted by a weekly (not binge-release!) rollout.
