After shutting down production on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier due to the coronavirus outbreak last week, production on two other Disney Plus shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been paused, Variety reported. WandaVision is scheduled to hit the streaming service in December 2020, while Loki is due out in spring 2021, and it's unclear if those release dates have been impacted.
