The central focus of the show will be on the relationship between Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff (aka time-manipulator Scarlet Witch) and Bettany’s sentient android superhero Vision.
Theories have been circulating about the show’s plot, with one suggesting the whole “sitcom” will be based in a false reality conjured up by Wanda.
Vision is technically dead in the MCU, after all.
Chatting to MTV News about the TV project, Bettany discussed his initial feelings when Marvel boss Kevin Feige first pitched the idea to himself and Olsen.
“A and One, I thought I was being brought in to be fired; B and Two, I thought they were gonna let me down, you know, like, ‘Listen, Paul, we love you, but…’
“And instead what he did was pitch this idea for a sort of six-hour movie that I would never in a million years â€“ which is why he’s the one earning the really big bucks â€“ have thought of.”
“And it’s so avant-garde and weird and messed up and then moves seamlessly into more familiar territory. But the place that it starts is so odd,” he added.
A six-hour movie… and we thought The Irishman had a long runtime.
WandaVision is expected to hit Disney+ in 2021, while the service launches in the US on November 12, 2019 (but not in the UK).
