Marvel has been challenged by Wanda Group over a WandaVision trademark. The Hong Kong company is based in Beijing and disputed the entertainment company's attempts to file a trademark using the name of the upcoming Disney+ series according to Bleeding Cool. It remains unclear how this is going to impact the show going forward. The corporation has incredibly deep pockets, so this should end up being resolved. But, it seems clear the top brass at Marvel Studios probably weren't expecting this back and forth when they began production on the Scarlett Witch and Vision series. As for that show, Disney still has WandaVision tabbed for a December premiere and there hasn't been any indication that it would be delayed. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki are up first.
