Amidst the changing tides of the Coronavirus, many Marvel fans have been holding out hope that Disney’s small-screen universe will still take off on time. While Disney has already delayed most of their cinematic slate, the studio has yet to rule out the targeted release dates of Falcon and the Winter Soldier (scheduled for August 2020) and WandaVision (scheduled for December 2020), leaving content-desperate fans on the edge of their seats.
According to Murphys Multiverse, WandaVision has finished its initial production run, including the competition of filming and some VFX work. While many speculate the show can still reach it’s December release because of this, it’s still very much up in the air, as Disney often utilizes re-shoots to complete their projects (Falcon and the Winter Soldier was undergoing reshoots before production was put on hold).
It’s interesting that while Disney has been active in re-arranging their cinematic slate, they have been relatively quiet when it comes to their Disney+ projects. Personally, I think the studio is still trying to figure out how these shows will fit in with the delayed Marvel films, as each show will clearly tie into the MCU lore. I am dubious of Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s ability to meet its August release, so I would not be surprised if WandaVision potentially switched places with it.
Another project that could potentially be on the move is The Mandalorian Season Two, which wrapped its production before the Coronavirus hit and could move up from its October release. I would not be surprised if Disney announced all of its TV-related news together similar to their big-screen offerings, countering the bad news of any potential delays with some much-needed good news. Either way, it will be interesting to see how the Coronavirus continues to impact Marvel’s coordinated cinematic universe.
