Marvel and Disney have officially confirmed a television series surrounding the characters of Scarlet Witch and Vision, to air on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service under the title of WandaVision.
The series, which recently recruited Captain Marvel screenwriter Jac Schaeffer as showrunner, was rumored to be called “Vision and Scarlet Witch,” but Disney has apparently decided to take another approach with… WandaVision? A Falcon & Winter Soldier series was also announced alongside WandaVision, which will focus on yet more supporting characters in the MCU, hopefully in an effort to flesh out its underutilized characters in a long-form environment like television.
While there are no other details on WandaVision, answers should come following the release of the highly-anticipated, and super-secretive Avengers: Endgame. It’s worth noting that both Vision and the Scarlet Witch are currently dead in the MCU, so it’s unclear if this series would take place after their possible resurrections or earlier in the MCU timeline.
At the Walt Disney Studios’ investor meeting, which focused on the Disney+ streaming service and its upcoming launch, WandaVision was confirmed by the company. The series will focus on both Scarlet Witch and Vision, and will bring back actors Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in starring roles.
