WandaVision: Elizabeth Olsen stars in Disney+ series trailer
WandaVision is due to arrive on the streaming platform Disney Plus this week and fans are excited to delve into the life of Marvel hero Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen). The character, also known as the Scarlet Witch, has the special ability to manipulate minds and control matter. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about when the series will be out.
When does WandaVision come out?
Fans of Marvel and the Avengers franchise will be pleased to hear the miniseries will be arriving soon after filming was paused due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The nine-episode limited series is set following the events of Avengers: Endgame, which saw the tragic death of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr).
The film included an epic fight involving all the heroes from the Marvel universe, as they took on Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his army.
In the films, Wanda fell in love with the mysterious being Vision (Paul Bettany) and she believed she had lost him when Thanos wiped out half of the planet’s population.
In the new spin-off series, both actors will reprise their roles to tell the tale of married life between Wanda and Vision.

In the spin-off, the couple is living in Westview and they are trying to hide their powers in order to lead a normal life.
Yet with the birth of television, they start to suspect something sinister is happening.
The first two episodes will air on Friday, January 15, on Disney Plus, with the remaining episodes airing weekly on Fridays.
The series was due to air at the end of 2020, so fans have been waiting a long time for the latest Marvel series.
With the show including nine episodes, it is likely to come to an end at the beginning of March 2021.
Disney Plus shared a clip from the new series on Twitter, with the message: “A new era arrives. @MarvelStudios’ #WandaVision, and original series, is streaming Jan 15 on #Disney Plus.”
Fans responded expressing their excitement, although they were disappointed to hear the series would not air in 2020 as planned.
Filming began back in November 2019, but it was paused in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Production did not resume until September 2020 and was completed in November, which meant it would have been a tight turnaround to get the series out before the end of the year.
The official trailer for the series shows a quintessential black-and-white snapshot of the newlyweds’ life as they settle down in their new home.

For the first time, fans will get to see Vision without his iconic costume as Wanda changes his look to conceal his true identity.
In one scene, Vision is told by one of the characters he is actually dead, and viewers are keen to know if this is true.
If she really did lose Vision, it would make sense for her to lose her mind following the death of her brother and love interest.
One fan helped describe how the series fits into the Marvel story, saying: “In the comics (post endgame), Wanda loses her mind, and every time she breaks down she’d create an alternate universe where her loved ones are alive, and with different ideal living scenarios for the mutants.
“Professor X Xavier would always help her come to her senses, and help her to put everything back to normal for several times – coz it causes unprecedented dangers. This is the movie/tv series version of that [sic].”
Olsen spoke to Jimmy Kimmel Live to dispel some theories surrounding the new series.
Some fans believed Vision’s suit, which includes a unique patterned tie, is a clue suggesting he is trapped insight another body.
Others have spotted clues suggesting the series is a nod to one of the comic books in which Wanda has a breakdown.
She could only describe the series as Wanda and Vision living their suburban sitcom fantasy, and they cover time periods from the 50s through to the present day.
