The series will launch on January 15th, 2021, via Disney+. The series will feature many different characters including the return of Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis, Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo, and Monica Rambeau portrayed by Teyonah Parris (she was previously portrayed by Akira Akbar in Captain Marvel). It will contain many different MCU connections including a direct set up to Doctor Strange 2.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will make its cinematic debut on March 25th, 2022, and will take us on an adventure through the different multiverses present in the continuity of the MCU. As for the connection between the two projects, Entertainment Weekly noted:
Along with this news, Kevin Fiege, the President of Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer of all things Marvel, quoted on the connections as it related to the broader MCU:
This is extremely exciting to hear as an MCU fan. It has been a hard year as we have not any MCU projects for the first time since 2009. We can be excited to know that not only does Wandavision set up the future of Phase 4, it will include easter eggs, references and connections to the last 11 years of Marvel films stretching back to 2008’s Iron Man. With this exciting news, here is the latest Wandavision teaser trailer.
