The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to move into Phase 4, finally, as the Disney+ original series WandaVision debuts with its first two episodes on Friday, January 15. However, before the show hits the streaming service, there will be a virtual launch event featuring the cast.

The event will kick off on Marvel Entertainment's Twitter at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. The actors featured in the announcement tweet are Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda), Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), and Kathryn Hahn (Agnes).

While details about the virtual launch event are scarce, fans can most likely expect the cast talking about their experiences on the show and maybe we'll even get a new clip before the series airs.

WandaVision will be a bit of a departure from what fans of the MCU are familiar with. Aside from the fact it is the first Disney+/Marvel original series, the show will bit a bizarre. The series follows the titular characters who are stuck in a sitcom that is jumping between decades, recreating some iconic TV atmospheres, and that includes a nod to Full House--a series that starred Elizabeth Olsen's older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley.

Early audience reactions have arrived, and they've been mainly positive. GameSpot's Chris E. Hayner tweeted, "this show's dedication to the bit of resembling shows like Bewitched, I Love Lucy, and The Brady Bunch had me staring at it dreamily."

And because this show pulls from many classic American sitcoms, you may wonder what shows the series pulled from. Director Matt Shakman mentioned I Love Lucy, My Three Sons, Bewitched, and quite a few other notable sitcoms in a recent interview.
