Marvel CCO Kevin Feige appeared at CCXP in São Paulo, Brazil over the weekend to share what few details about upcoming Marvel projects he could. One treat was a first look at ‘WandaVision’, the upcoming Disney+ series starring Elizabeth Olsen reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as The Vision.
Everything that has been revealed about ‘WandaVision’ so far makes this sound like a truly unique experience, part old-fashioned sitcom, part Marvel movie, part horror flick. It will heavily influence the upcoming theatrical movie ‘Doctor Strange in the Madness of the Multiverse’. Rumor has it, the dream-warping Nightmare will be the villain in both ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Doctor Strange 2’, and Olsen’s Wanda will co-star in ‘Doctor Strange 2’.
Now comes a first look at the sitcom side of ‘WandaVision’, which Feige unveiled at CCXP:

As you can see, and as was hinted at in the previously released concept art, Wanda and Vision are leaning into some sort of ‘Bewitched’-like fantasy life, complete with a nosey neighbor named Agnes (Kathryn Hahn), and possibly even twin sons. Reportedly, these portions of ‘WandaVision’ were filmed in front of a live studio audience.
At CCXP, Feige stated:
“[We have] the opportunity to tell their story, and show more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision, Vision, and most importantly, reveal a name that I’m not even sure we’ve said in the MCU yet, but we make a big deal of in the show, is the fact that Wanda is the Scarlet Witch. And what does that mean, that she is the Scarlet Witch? That’s what we play into with this show in ways that are entirely fun, entirely funny, somewhat scary, and will have repercussions for the entire future of Phase 4 of the MCU.”
‘WandaVision’ is expected to arrive on Disney+ in Spring 2021.
