Wanda Group Hong Kong Challenges Marvel Trademark Of Wandavision

WandaVision is an upcoming TV series created for Disney+ from Marvel by Jac Schaeffer, based on the Scarlet Witch and Vision characters and the Tom King and Gabriel Walta series. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Schaeffer serving as head writer and Matt Shakman directing, it stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their movie roles. Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, Randall Park, and Kathryn Hahn also star. Filming began in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2019 but in March 2020, production was halted due to the pandemic. WandaVision is scheduled to premiere in December 2020, but that might change.

Naturally, Marvel has sought to trademark the word 'Wandavision' for its own purposes. But not everyone is happy with that. And now the Wanda Group of Hong Kong has sought to challenge the US trademarking of that word.

The Wanda Group Ltd has been given an extension by the US government to challenge Marvel over the Wandavision trademark.
