Paul Bettany (left) reprises his role as Vision, who now lives with Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff. In the six-episode series to stream on Disney+ Jan. 15, the two begin suspecting that their idealized lives are not what they seem to be.

Avengers will assemble next year — not in another movie but individually on Disney+ TV series with Marvel’s Scarlet Witch leading the way.

Scheduled to stream Jan. 15 for the first of its six-episode run, “WandaVision” takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and stars Elizabeth Olsen as the title character, Wanda Maximoff.

Disney+ describes it as “a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda … and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.”

The streaming service did not provide any explanations as to how Vision can still be alive after the events of “Avengers: Infinity War” in which Thanos kills the artificial life form by taking away his Mind Stone.

At Disney’s Investor Day 2020 on Dec. 10, the company also showered Marvel fans with a list of other projects that will run next year through 2023:

    • Two months after “WandaVision” on an unspecified date in March, Disney+ will stream episodes about the Falcon and the Winter Soldier
    • “Loki” starring Tom Hiddleston will get his own show with a May 2021 release date
    • “Hawkeye” will then premiere next fall.

Disney didn’t provide release dates for these other projects, but it plans to develop an animated series based on Marvel’s What If? comic book line and live-action ones based on such lesser known characters as Ironheart, Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Nick Fury with Samuel L. Jackson returning to play the SHIELD director.

Finally, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner will appear in a series based on She-Hulk. In two years, Marvel Studios plans to produce a new Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special for Disney+ with “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3” due out in 2023.

Comic Book Club adviser and science teacher Alexander Hua said he has been following the announcements from Disney with excitement.

“It’s been a long time since we have gotten any Marvel content because ‘Black Widow’ was delayed from COVID,” Hua said. “I think they are going to be very rewarding for long-time fans of the MCU because they’ll link into the movies in some ways.”

Comic Book Club co-president junior Jasmine Lee won’t be able to binge watch any “WandaVision” episodes as she had hoped during winter break after the series got pushed back to January.

“My expectations are high because I really like Wanda’s character, and I am excited for her to be more developed,” Lee said.
