A few weeks back, reports regarding Scarlet Witch’s own solo series on the Disney+ network started making rounds. It was also revealed that Paul Bettany’s Vision would also have a role in the show and now, the recent report hints that it might be debuting sooner than we thought.
According to Deadline, the series is titled “Vision and the Scarlet Witch”. The report also claims that the series will be debuting in 2019.
“The character will be a title character for the first time next year with the launch of Vision and the Scarlet Witch, a Disney+ streaming series,”
Deadline’s Geoff Boucher wrote.
If this is true, the series would have to start its production soon. Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian has been under production since weeks, and will most likely be one of Disney+’s debuting shows. Till now, Loki is the only show set in the MCU to be confirmed by the House of Mouse. Just like Loki, Vision was one of the characters who was killed by Thanos prior to the snap.
Earlier this year, Paul Bettany talked about the scene that saw Olsen having to kill Vision in order to stop the Mad Titan.
“Well it was about 100 degrees and we were really, really sweaty, and the [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] ran over to us and went, ‘So, okay, the entire beating heart of the movie is now on your shoulders,’” Bettany recalled. “So we did it a couple of times and they said, ‘Ok, that’s great, let’s just improvise it now,’ and I just sort of looked at Lizzy and she looks at me and I thought, ‘I’m a robot, and you’re a witch, how are we gonna…?’
“You know, it’s a lot in isolation of the rest of the plot even. And you’re purple. And you’ve got a jewel and your head. And she’s going to destroy it. And you’re imagining red things coming out of her fingers, yet you’re also sort of trying to find some reality in all of this. I think we were both when it was done, kind of like, ‘Oh, let’s go home.’”
Fortunately for Vision, he’s an android who should be repaired easily, especially when the Avengers have access to Wakanda’s tech.
