WandaVision may not be the most innovated title for the upcoming Disney+ show, but don’t let that fool you. We are going to get a show that includes things that the movies couldn’t provide, according to the cast.
The stars of WandaVision sat down with the people of EW during Disney’s D23 Expo to talk about the series and what we should expect. Wanda star Elizabeth Olsen hinted that the show would dive into popular comic book history, while playing with the classic sitcom standard:
“It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters.”
Paul Bettany, who plays Vision; added:
“That’s where it starts. And then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”
“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.”
“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.”
Vision was killed at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and was not revived in Avengers: Endgame. Could WandaVision take place during an alternate timeline or is Scarlet Witch playing with the reality of the show? Could we see a House of M storyline play out?
“I think people are going to be really blown away by it.”
