Elizabeth Olsen is all set to reprise her Scarlet Witch role in "WandaVision".
16 Dec – To get fans even more hyped up for the upcoming Disney+ series "WandaVision", Marvel Studios has announced that there is a new series that will be premiering ahead of the Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany-starrer.
"Marvel Studios: Legends is a new series that revisits some of the most iconic moments from the MCU, one character at a time," Marvel Studios tweeted.
The first two episodes of "Legends" will be available from 8 January 2021 onwards.
Naturally, Wanda Maximoff and Vision will be the focus of the initial episodes, carving more interest for the duo's upcoming series that will be released on the streaming platform exactly a week later.
"WandaVision", which sees Olsen and Bettany reprising their respective titular roles, is a six-episode series set after the events of 2019's "Avengers: Endgame".
Reportedly, the plot will focus on Wanda's origins, on how she came to be the superhero Scarlet Witch.
Disney has also previously revealed that "the series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision-two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives-begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems."
Aside from "WandaVision", which kicks off Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), other Marvel series that will be streaming on Disney+ next year are "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier", "Loki", "What If...?", "Ms. Marvel" and "Hawkeye".
