Wanda Maximoff and Vision have always been side characters in the Avengers films, but they're set to take the spotlight with the Disney+ miniseries WandaVision. We don't have any official synopsis on the show yet, but Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany give us a little teaser of what to expect.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Olsen, explained, "It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters." Bettany then 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."
Seeing that Scarlet Witch's powers have basically devolved into her just lifting things with her mind, Olsen may have teased that we're going to get more of her other abilities in the show.
She says, "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."
A lot of people suspect that we're finally going to be able to see Scarlet Witch actually bend reality in this series, much like how she did in House of M. There are also said to be influences from other stories involving Maximoff.
Bettany added, "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."
With Vision gone and Wanda on her own, I'm kind of excited to see where Marvel will take their characters. I never really felt that Vision had a lot of time to grow, and Wanda has always been more of a supporting character. With this series though, I'm hoping we could really explore what makes both of them interesting. Hopefully, it will also be a build-up to the team-up between Wanda and Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Catch WandaVision when it hits Disney+ in the spring of 2021. Disney+ officially launches on Nov. 12.
