Arguably the most interesting of the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series is the one we know about the least – “WandaVision”.
The series, which centers around Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany‘s Vision, has many questions hovering over it – mainly because the few details shown thus far suggest it’ll be the weirdest and most original of the bunch.
Olsen, Bettany and co-stars Kat Dennings, Randall Park, and Kathryn Hahn spoke to EW this week about the show which will potentially explore popular comic book arcs that the films don’t have time for (such as “House of M”).
Olsen says: “it is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters” and Bettany then chimed in: “That’s where it starts, and then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”
Olsen says she’s also excited about where the show will take her character: “Just from starting from Age of Ultron. The things that I’ve loved about the Scarlet Witch are things we’re getting to explore now. And I’m very nervous and excited about it in all the fun ways. But I think we finally get to go down some roads in comic books that are favorites and explore, and it’s going to be a wild ride.”
Bettany is in full agreement: “I think there’s been a real progression in the characters and the relationship and to actually be able to spend the time on that. Each time there’s more exciting stuff for us to do.… The scripts we are reading so far are so bonkers.”
“WandaVision” is in the works for a Spring 2021 premiere exclusively on Disney+.
