Two Marvel movie favorites will be returning in the upcoming Disney+ series ‘WandaVision’.  In addition, Kathryn Hahn, who voiced Doc Ock in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ from So– er, is it too soon to mention that studio’s name?  Ahem, anyway, Kathryn Hahn of ‘I Love Dick’ and ‘Transparent’ has been added to the cast as “Wanda’s nosy neighbor.”  Joining Hahn will be Kat Dennings, reprising her role as Darcy Lewis from the first two ‘Thor’ movies, and Randall Park as FBI Agent Jimmy Woo from ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’.

Describing ‘WandaVision’, Feige declared, that it was “unlike anything we’ve done before,” and used the words “weird” and “strange.”

Elizabeth Olsen will star as Wanda Maximoff, who in the comics is known as the Scarlet Witch, although she’s never been called that in the movies.  Somehow, Paul Bettany will return as the Vision.

It was previously announced that Teyonah Parris (‘If Beale Street Could Talk’) had been cast to play an adult version of Monica Rambeau.  In ‘Captain Marvel’, Akira Akbar played Monica as a child.  She was the daughter of Carol Danver’s best friend and fellow pilot Maria (Lashana Lynch).  In the comics, the adult Monica Rambeau became the first female Captain Marvel, but later changed her name to Photon, then Pulsar, and finally Spectrum.  (It’s a whole thing.)

Denning’s Darcy was an intern working with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) when they first encounter Thor during his first visit to Earth.  She served as the comic relief of the movie, but is also shown to be one of the most observant characters, who notices what’s happening while the others are too distracted.  She was last seen in ‘Thor: The Dark World’.

Park’s Jimmy Woo was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. until it was dismantled after the events of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’.  Upon joining the FBI, in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Woo is in charge of supervising Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) house arrest.  After attempting several times to catch Lang violating his house arrest, after he went into action as Ant-Man, Woo finally relented and had Lang’s ankle monitor removed.  Until now, that was Park’s only appearance in the MCU.

‘WandaVision’ is expected to arrive on Disney+ in Spring 2020.  Reportedly, the events of this series lead directly into the film ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’.  Disney+ launches on November 12.
