Kathryn Hahn’s subdued brilliance recently received a necessary jumpstart after her appearance on the Marvel x Disney+ series, WandaVision, as its primary antagonist. A deceptively cunning witch, Hahn’s character stands out in her individual capacity despite having limited screen time to work with and even less to build her villainous storyline. However, the Purple Witch somehow outshines her co-stars in every frame and doles out the evil in all its unchecked magnanimity.
As the Parks and Recreation actress prepares herself to helm her very own Agatha Harness project at MCU, Kathryn Hahn fills her resume, in the meanwhile, with high-profile appearances like that in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

Kathryn Hahn’s Debacle on the Sets of Netflix’s Knives Out 2
Out of the bare handful of certifiably good projects to come out of Netflix each year, 2019’s Knives Out reigns as an eternal favorite. Loved by all and honored as a comfort film by many, the ensemble film evokes the era of Christiesque whodunit narrative that manages to constantly up the pace with its exceedingly entertaining chaos and characteristic eccentricities. The dark-wooded mansion mystery film, with its very deserving sequel — Glass Onion, is now on its merry way to the theaters, and with it brings a second horde of an ensemble cast, one of whom is the MCU star, Kathryn Hahn.
During her time on set during the filming of the Knives Out sequel, Kathryn Hahn managed to stay true to her comedic nature so much so that it would have made the film’s detective protagonist, Daniel Craig uncomfortable. While seeing him walking on to set, Hahn recollects her very first reaction being — “Woah, I have such a crush on your wife – what am I gonna say to you?”
Daniel Craig, the beloved 007 who immortalized the James Bond franchise by taking it out of its chauvinistic, misogynist depths and giving it a long-overdue makeover, has been married to The Mummy star, Rachel Weisz since 2011. And he was lucky enough on this occasion to not have encountered Kathryn Hahn’s schoolgirl infatuation towards Weisz firsthand — thus saving both parties from a flustering meet and greet.
Rian Johnson Outdoes His Netflix Debut With Glass Onion
From the ingenious mind of Rian Johnson comes another masterpiece that somehow manages to rival his first murder mystery in its stunning visual and creative grandiosity. Although Knives Out had a closed-room tension and a slow unraveling pace to it, Glass Onion launches itself headlong into the drama of puzzling dilemmas and debatably psychotic tech billionaires as the famous cast treads through the plot in the sequel’s vacation-induced leisure.
Amid the overarching architecture and hypnotic Greek landscape, Daniel Craig’s lovable Southern gentleman detective, Benoit Blanc navigates the plot with his signature cigar-smoking expertise as he, along with the audience, arrives at a conclusion to the film’s core mystery. And yet again, like the first film’s underlying themes of questionable morality, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery shines a light on the directly proportional relationship between unchecked greed and the privilege of the wealthy.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will premiere in theatres on 23 November 2022, and arrive on Netflix on 23 December 2022.
