While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only scratched the surface of the relationship between Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda and Paul Bettany’s Vision, that will change with the arrival of WandaVision on Jan. 15. The Disney+ television show is the first MCU series on the same streaming service that brought us The Mandalorian and will be the first of several MCU projects to hit the platform this year.
