Fans who are eager to see the return of some of their favourite Marvel superheroes now know exactly how long they have to wait.

Disney has unveiled release dates for some of its highly anticipated TV shows and films slated for the upcoming year.

WandaVision, a spinoff starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, will be released on Disney+ on Friday, January 15. The duo reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, and Vision, with the show takeing place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

Disney+ is not available in the UAE, and it has not yet been confirmed if OSN, which carries select Disney titles, will show the series in the region.

Another miniseries, The Falcon & the Winter Soldier, will see Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie reprise their titular roles. Also taking place after Endgame, the miniseries will focus on the duo after being bestowed with Captain America’s shield and drops on Friday, March 19.

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has been scheduled to hit cinemas on Friday, May 7. The film is particularly highly anticipated as Marvel fans have been asking for a standalone title based on the mysterious character for years. The film was originally supposed to be released this May, but was pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic.

Other anticipated programmes set to come out in 2021 include Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, which will air some time in May, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, a Marvel superhero film with an almost entirely Asian ensemble cast, on Friday, July 9 and Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani’s Eternals on Friday, November 5.
