This Thursday fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were treated to an array of news from the upcoming streaming service, Disney+. The company officially announced the launch of multiple series. These series includes Loki, Falcon and Winter Soldier, and WandaVision. The good news is, that all of the film actors will return to their respective roles.
Fans and the respective film actors have taken to social media to share the exciting news. Elizabeth Olsen, the actor best-known for playing Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch shared her co-star Paul Bettany (Vision)’s Instagram post.

“Soooooooooo… Turns out this is gonna happen with me and my ol Chum @elizabetholsenofficial AND IT IS GONNA BE AMAZING!,” Bettany wrote.
“What he said. Cannot wait to be back at it with @paulbettany,” Olsen responded.
Currently, details beyond the title and casting are unknown, but WandaVision is expected to be shown by Black Widow writer Jac Schaeffer.
During the Disney+ presentation, Kevin Feige (Marvel Studios’ President) said:
“We like to take big swings at Marvel Studios … this story is definitely something unexpected and surprising, as well as something we can only do in a longform series. Most exciting to us is that in addition to the films available on the platform, Marvel will be creating original series just for Disney+.”
Fans were quick to comment on Olsen’s post, excited by the news that she’ll be reuniting with Bettany for the MCU series. Here are some of the comments:
“So excited for this. Hope we see more of their relationship,” @binka_lupin wrote.
“I AM SO READY TO SPEND EVERY SECOND OF MY DAY OBSESSING OVER THIS OH GOD,” @baltruschdasilva replied.
“Spoiler for Endgame???,” @shryx86 asked.
It is interesting to see that every character who died in Avengers: Infinity War is going to get their own series. While fans have suspected the characters who were dusted would be making a return. What wonders us is how Vision and Loki will be brought back? While some are considering this series news as an Avengers: Endgame spoiler, it’s likely the movie will provide enough surprises to keep fans satisfied.
Avengers: Endgame hits theatres on April 26.
Disney+ is scheduled to launch later in November. But there is no official word on when the Marvel Studios projects will debut.
