Marvel’s upcoming Disney Plus series WandaVision may be the most far-out, lore-breaking experiment Kevin Feige and his team of creatives has ever conceived. Formally announced for spring of 2021, the series will bring Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe fold — despite the latter being killed off by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.

Feige took to the stage at the D23 Expo’s Disney Plus Showcase panel to dig a little deeper into WandaVision, describing it as heavily inspired by The Dick Van Dyke Show, while glitchy footage of Wanda and Vision from past Avengers movies played over the stream. Knowing that it’ll directly connect to the mouth-full escapade Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, there’s plenty of reason to think the series will dabble in the history of House of M and Tom King’s iconic run on The Vision in ways no one thought possible.

Along with the tone exercise, Feige also announced additional cast for the series: Kat Dennings’ Darcy would return to the MCU after her last appearance in Thor: The Dark World, while Randall Park’s FBI goon Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp would be a series regular. It was also confirmed, at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, that a grown up Monica Rambeau — last seen as a precocious kid in Captain Marvel — will also appear. What is this show????

In other Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney Plus casting news, the Disney Plus Showcase panel revealed that Emily VanCamp will return as Sharon Carter/Agent 13 in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street) will play John Walker, in the first live-action appearance of the Marvel hero U.S. Agent.
