While Disney has already announced new release dates for their upcoming superhero projects, starting with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, the studio is also planning to delay its upcoming series. Disney had earlier announced its promising list of superhero series that included WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. While they were supposed to premiere this year, the studio has now apparently decided to push them till 2021. An official confirmation on the same is still awaited but certain Hollywood media outlets insist the decision to delay their release has already been taken.

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany's superhero series was earlier scheduled to hit Disney+ in late 2020. However, as per new reports in The Hollywood Reporter, it has been delayed to Spring 2021 alongside Loki. While its shooting was wrapped before the pandemic and the post-production work was supposed to resume this month, there were few re-shoots needed and the same will now take time considering the situation all over. The series is extremely crucial for the future of Marvel as it ultimately connects itself to Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
Meanwhile, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was earlier supposed to premiere in August 2020. However, as per reports in Deadline, since their shooting is still incomplete there's no way the makers would be able to retain their original release date. The series is also not on Disney+’s new list of next month premieres. While the show had received permission to resume its shooting in Europe recently, they will still take some time to wrap it and then start working on its post-production.
