Fans have long-speculated who Kathryn Hahn is playing in Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision and the first trailer seemingly confirms those suspicions.
When it comes to Scarlet Witch and Vision, there’s an incredibly important figure that helps the duo create their children and was even murdered when Wanda lost her mind shortly before the events of House of M in the comics. Agatha Harkness was a survivor of the original witch trials at Salem and many fans have already speculated that Kathryn Hahn is playing the mystical figure after set photos seemingly showed the actress dressed as a witch in the Middle Ages alongside Elizabeth Olsen.
But the recent trailer also tied into the theory by showing Kathryn Hahn dressed in a witch’s hat in her car before Paul Bettany’s Vision shocks her out of a trance. But the trailer’s closed captioning labels her character as ‘Agnes’ whenever she speaks. That name seems a little too close to ‘Agatha’ to be a coincidence. And since it’s clear that Vision and Scarlet Witch’s children, Wiccan and Speed, will also seemingly have a role in WandaVision, it seems like a sensible guess that Kathryn Hahn is playing Agatha Harkness. Throw in her gray hair and the cackle she lets out after talking to the android and it all seems fairly obvious. Take a look at Kathryn Hahn in the WandaVision footage below.

Here is the official synopsis for WandaVision:
Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that the series will lead into the feature film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney Plus in 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest news on WandaVision and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
