Plot

WandaVision follows the story of superheroes and romantic partners Scarlet Witch and Vision, who are both longtime members of the Avengers. Scarlet Witch is a powerful sorceress, and Vision is an android. The show takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and its plot will lead directly to Scarlet Witch's appearance in the film Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness, which is set to hit theaters in May 2021. 

"It's gonna get weird," Olsen said of the show at Comic-Con, adding that WandaVision will reveal why she's called "Scarlet Witch." 

The show will also feature an adult Monica Rambeau, daughter of Carol Danvers' best friend in Captain Marvel. She'll be played by Teyonah Parris.

Game of Thrones director Matt Shakman will direct the series.

Release date

WandaVision is slated for a spring 2021 release on Disney Plus. The $7-a-month streaming service, Disney's answer to Netflix, will feature a vast catalog of new and legacy shows and movies. Disney Plus will launch on Nov. 12 in the US.

Official poster

Comic book artist Andy Park shared the official poster he created for D23 on Twitter, which depicts the series' 1950s setting. 

"WANDAVISION!!! Official D23 poster I had the honor of painting during the early concept phase of preproduction. This @DisneyPlus show is gonna be something totally fresh.. & weird!" Park tweeted. 

The image shows Wanda and Vision sitting on a couch in the living room, with a red glow emanating from the TV. There's a shadow on the wall behind the couple that forms the outline of Scarlet Witch's headdress from the comics.
