'WandaVision' fans left hanging as Disney+ outage interrupts latest episode


Wanda Maximoff may have the ability to alter reality, but fans of the Marvel character were unable to tap into her Chaos magic to watch the newest episode of “WandaVision” when it dropped due to a Disney+ outage.

The New York Post reports that the newest episode of the show, which promises a big reveal about Agnes, played by Kathryn Hahn, was supposed to premiere at 3:01 AM Eastern, but some fans who stayed up to watch the show in the United States, Canada, and the UK saw an error message instead.

“We’re currently experiencing slow internet speed connections,” said one message, “Please check to see that you are still connected to the internet, and try again (Error Code 76),” while others saw a more succinct note that simply read “An unexpected error has occurred.”

Deadline reports that the Disney+ outage lasted for around ten minutes and affected a limited number of subscribers before the issue was resolved.

Kat Dennings, one of the stars of the popular show, recently shared how when she initially auditioned for her role as Marvel character Darcy Lewis, she had to endure an intensely secret process.

"It was so secret that I didn't know what I was auditioning for," Dennings said during an interview on the “Keep It” podcast. “So I went to an address. I have no idea what’s going on. I don’t know what the movie is, all I know is that it’s a superhero movie and I’m like ‘Am I a superhero?’ What do I wear, like, leggings? What do I do?” she said of auditioning for 2011’s “Thor” film.

The process was so secretive that Dennings was sent to a fake address, where she was picked up in a golf cart by someone who “was like ‘I’m here to take you to the real place’ and I was like ‘What?'”

Dennings’ character, who Marvel fans met as an intern, is now an expert in her field on “WandaVision.”
