The Marvel Cinematic Universe is known for its collection of interconnected films. However, its related television shows have thus far only been loosely connected. While the various series generally acknowledge the events of the greater MCU, the films have never really acknowledged the events or characters of the shows. That’s about to change with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and WandaVision.
Scarlet Witch, Vision and Sorcerer Supreme will get the focus they deserve
During the “Infinity Saga,” Scarlet Witch, Vision and the Sorcerer Supreme never quite got the focus some fans may feel they deserved, nor did the two ever really get to interact. Disney+ and the current film slate will make up for it and in seemingly intriguing situations, though details are scarce.
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch described the Doctor Strange sequel as a mix between humor and horror while Elizabeth Olsen stated, “we’re finally going to understand Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch,” while Paul Bettany remains uncertain about his character following Vision’s fate in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unclear at this time how he’ll return for WandaVision.
WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Scarlet Witch and Vision, respectively, with Jac Schaeffer serving as showrunner. The series will be available for streaming on Disney+ in spring 2021.
