Default Disney+ and the MCU

So I was reading a article on Bloomberg earlier about Disney+ (see link at the bottom) and this jumped out at me. It's a quote from Kevin Feige.

Quote:
If you want to understand everything in future Marvel movies, he says, you’ll probably need a Disney+ subscription, because events from the new shows will factor into forthcoming films such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The Scarlet Witch will be a key character in that movie, and Feige points out that the Loki series will tie in, too. “I’m not sure we’ve actually acknowledged that before,” he says. “But it does.”
So both the WandaVision series and the Loki series will tie into the Dr. Strange sequel. That's interesting to know. It's also going to make for a interesting experiment. How many of the average moviegoers will have actually seen those shows before seeing the movie, and will the movie be able to be watched, as a standalone, without those shows stories as a backbone to the plot. Big questions there. One that will more than likely will result if successful in more non-standard media being used to supplement or setup big budget movies, at least in the MCU. in future.

I think it would be a mistake to make viewing additional content, available only on a specific paid streaming service, necessary for the enjoyment of a theatrical release. Having them tied together, to a greater extent than the TV series have been in the past, seems like a fun idea, but making them required backstory? I expect that to backfire.

I hope that doesn't mean that the whole WandaVision show is going to be set in an alternate universe. That would be horrible, and a waste.

Honestly I think it's going to be about Scarlet Witch's ability to make her own realities. Which is as far as I have heard one of her canon powers.

Having only watched the majority of MCU movies once and over a scattered timeframe, I've already been a little confused on some of the continuity (not so much that I can't follow, but more like 'who is that again?'). This makes it sound like I'll be even more lost. I don't watch comic book shows even when they're free (WB) or on a service I'm already buying (Netflix).
