Marvel’s “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” Set to Begin Filming
Marvel Studios’ first Disney+ spinoff is now officially underway.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos begins filming today in Atlanta, with Kathryn Hahn reprising her role as Agatha Harkness from the very first Marvel Studios Disney+ series, WandaVision. Hahn is re-teaming with WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer, who serves as head writer and executive producer here, as well as director of several episodes. Agatha: Coven of Chaos has a slew of talented women behind the camera, including Wednesday director Gandja Monteiro and Resident Evil and A Friend of the Family director Rachel Goldberg.
The talent level is just as strong in front of the camera, too. Hahn is joined by The White Lotus star Aubrey Plaza, Broadway legend Patti LuPone, Heartstopper star Joe Locke, Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Emma Caulfield, That ’70s Show actress Debra Jo Rupp, and comedian Sasheer Zamata.
So where will Agatha: Coven of Chaos find its titular mischief maker, and how will the show factor into the larger MCU and Phase 5? Plot details are, naturally, well guarded, but we know that Agatha’s identity as the actual villain of WandaVision was revealed by the end of that series. Agatha was bested by Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and trapped in the friendly neighbor persona she was portraying, yet we know she’s somehow going to break free and get back to her witchy ways.
Joining the aforementioned stars are returning WandaVision actors David Lengel, David Payton, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Kate Forbes, and Brian Brightman. Newcomers include Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Maria Dizzia, and Okwui Okpokwasili.
