Marvel boss Kevin Feige reveals what’s in store for Scarlet Witch in WandaVision when the series arrives on Disney Plus in January.

There’s not long to wait until WandaVision debuts on Disney Plus, and Kevin Feige recently opened up to Empire Magazine about what to expect from the series. Paul Bettany recently revealed two stunning covers for the issue which gives fans a peek behind the sitcom-inspired-curtain. Feige explained that vintage sitcoms helped shape WandaVision and even revealed that it takes some cues from recent shows like The Office.

“I loved TV, and watched far too much The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy and Bewitched and everything. We go up to the Modern Family and The Office style. The talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style.”

Although fans glimpsed just how powerful Scarlet Witch is in Avengers: Endgame, Kevin Feige noted that her powers haven’t been explored or explained fully aside from the occasional line of dialogue (“he’s fast and she’s weird” springs to mind from Age of Ultron). The Marvel head teased how WandaVision will examine Scarlet Witch and her abilities, hinting that the Mind Stone simply unlocked the powers she might’ve already had. Take a look at Kevin Feige discussing Scarlet Witch and WandaVision below.

“If you look at the Infinity Saga, I don’t think any single person has gone through more pain and trauma than Wanda Maximoff. And no character seems to be as powerful as Wanda Maximoff. And no character has a power-set that is as ill-defined and unexplored as Wanda Maximoff. So it seemed exploring that would be worthwhile post-Endgame. Who else is aware of that power? Where did it come from? Did the Mind Stone unlock it?”

Empire Magazine also revealed two interesting shots from WandaVision, with one set photo revealing Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany working together, while the other highlights the sitcom style of the series.

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.
