WandaVision director Matt Shakman teased how the Elizabeth Olsen series will blend two very different genres.
Although Avengers: Endgame concluded with nearly every hero who perished in Infinity War returning after Thanos’ decimation was reversed, Paul Bettany’s Vision was one of the few whose death could not be reversed. However, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision will reunite in a new series focused on the duo titled WandaVision.
Details on WandaVision are currently scarce, though material shown at Disney D23 Expo indicated the Elizabeth Olsen series will be a sitcom-styled show not unlike The Dick Van Dyke Show. During an interview Extra Butter, WandaVision director teased how the Elizabeth Olsen series will offer a blend of classic sitcoms and the epic action fans expect from Marvel:
“We can’t say much. It’s all pretty much on lockdown at this moment, you know? But all we can say really is it’s a blend of classic sitcom and huge, epic Marvel action.”

WandaVision centers on Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch after the events of Avengers: Endgame and is believed follow the character after she creates an idyllic world in which The Vision is still alive. The Elizabeth Olsen series also stars Teyonah Parris as an adult 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 confirmed WandaVision will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will see Elizabeth Olsen reprise her role as Scarlet Witch.
WandaVision is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in the Spring of 2021.
