Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first Phase 4 offering, “WandaVision,” wrapped up its first — and probably the only season — on the 5th of March. The show gave us an inside look into the psyche of Wanda Maximoff and allowed us to bear witness to her evolution into the mighty Scarlet Witch. What’s even more exciting isn’t a standalone, one-off phenomenon. It introduces a lot of interesting plot points and virtually sets the tone for the upcoming, post-“Avengers: Endgame” Phase for the Marvel hero-verse.
If you’re one of the few unfortunate Marvel fans who are yet to watch Wanda Maximoff and The Vision bring the quirky TV show to life, you’re probably wondering whether and when it’ll come to the most popular streaming service on the planet — Netflix. So, without further ado, let’s get to it.
WandaVision on Netflix: Will this ever happen?
Netflix, as you must already know, is the leading streaming service on the planet. With over 75 million paid subscribers in the United States alone, Netflix has the means to produce the best shows and even grand-scale blockbusters. However, there are times when even the biggest streaming service is forced to give up its foothold, especially when it’s Disney — with their licensed assets — on the other end.
“WandaVision” aired exclusively on Disney’s very own streaming service, Disney Plus between mid-January and the 5th of March. If you wish to watch the show right away, you’ll need a Disney Plus subscription. Else, if Netflix is the only streaming brand you’re loyal to, we regret to inform you that Netflix will not get the rights to show “WandaVision” in the future.
Why is “WandaVision” not coming to Netflix?
“WandaVision” is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU. Being a part of the MCU automatically means that it’s an intellectual property of Disney. Before Disney went all out and launched “Disney Plus,” they allowed most of their shows — “Daredevil,” “The Punisher,” “Iron Fist,” etc. — to run on Netflix. Now that it has a service of its own — AKA. Disney Plus — Disney doesn’t wish to share its cake with Netflix. So, if you’re looking for a legitimate way to watch “WandaVision” and more, be prepared to shell out $6.99 to get Disney Plus. Beware that Disney Plus is plotting to bump up the price to $7.99 after March 24th, which is still well worth getting considering the amount of great content you’ll be able to consume through it.

Will “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” be on Netflix?
Following the great success of “WandaVision,” MCU is gearing up to launch its second, Avenger-powered TV show. Dubbed as “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” the show will be the second Phase 4 property that would tie in directly to the future MCU movies and shows. Similar to “WandaVision,” the Falcon and Winter Soldier would feature exclusively on the Disney Plus network and not on Netflix or any other streaming service. So, if you’re willing to find out what happens when Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson team up to take on a familiar foe, be sure to subscribe to Disney Plus right away.
