Captain Marvel Writer Joins The Vision and Scarlet Witch Series
Saying goodbye hurts a little less when you know you’ll see them again. That is definitely the case when it comes to Vision and Scarlet Witch. Avengers: Infinity War was a heartbreaker, but the most devastating moments came from the power couple who made big sacrifices to try to save lives across the universe. Luckily, their story will continue on the small screen, whether or not they are resurrected in Endgame. Plans to continue Marvel storylines on Disney+, the upcoming streaming service, have been tentative, but it looks more official now that The Vision and Scarlet Witch is a go.
Last month rumor had it that Vision would join his lady love in a new show, which appears to be confirmed by hiring news. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Captain Marvel screenwriter Jac Schaeffer will be the series showrunner. Schaeffer will be doing some heavy lifting on the series. She will script the pilot episode in addition to executive producing. Expect to see more great work from Schaeffer as she’s well ensconced in the MCU. She has a writing credit on the upcoming Black Widow film too.
There’s no word yet on where in the timeline the show will pick up, but the cast will remain consistent from the films. Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen are expected to return to their title roles. The characters have a long romantic history in the comics that was represented in the on-screen adaptation. The series will likely follow the relationship between the synthezoid and sorceress.
Disney+ is still planning straight-to-streaming series about Loki as well as Winter Soldier and Falcon. Tom Hiddleston, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie will presumably reprise their roles. None of the shows have their own premiere date yet as Disney+ has yet to lock in an official debut beyond fall of this year. The theatrical release Marvel films, Star Wars library, and other programs will live on Disney+ as well.
