Marvel's Scarlet Witch streaming series seems set for even more Avengers power. We've known for weeks that Marvel is apparently developing a number of limited series for Disney's new streaming service that will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and reportedly feature stars from the films reprising their roles.
The inital reports about these shows listed two major series in development — one focused on Tom Hiddleston's Loki and another on Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch — and reports of a third starring Anthony Mackie's Falcon and Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier began circulating this week. Now it seems the Falcon/Winter Soldier show won't be the only team-up.
According to Slashfilm, the Scarlet Witch series is also set to have a major role lined up for Vision, Wanda Maximoff's fellow Avenger and love interest played by Paul Bettany. Their relationship began developing in Captain America: Civil War and had blossomed into a real romance by Avengers: Infinity War, at which point they were traveling around the world to meet each other despite being on different teams. Slashfilm's report goes so far as to suggest that the series may not be so much a Scarlet Witch solo series as a show "about the super-powered couple," so Vision could end up as a co-headliner here.
Of course, this is all unconfirmed right now, and we'll likely have a while to wait before we hear anything definitive from Disney, but it seems like a winning formula. Infinity War set up the development of the Wanda/Vision dynamic very nicely, but the pair became so caught up in the major events of that film's plot that we didn't really get any detail work with them, and of course by the end of the film they were very much worse for wear. It was quite clear that they had very intense feelings for each other, though, and a six-hour or eight-hour limited series could be the place to explore how they reconnect after whatever Avengers 4 throws at us.
Disney's streaming service is expected to launch next year. What do you think? Will you watch a Vision/Scarlet Witch series?
