Apparently, today is the day for news surrounding the Disney+ Marvel series. Earlier on, we reported on the rumor that the Loki series would feature Tom Hiddleston as the narrator of his own life, and now we have some news on the other big show set to set the streaming service on fire — a show that will follow Avengers Scarlet Witch and Vision, who have populated the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Avengers: Age of Ultron (though I guess Scarlet Witch originally popped up in the post-credits scene for Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
According to a new report from THR, the series, which they’re calling (at least in the article) The Vision and Scarlet Witch, has just landed a writer and showrunner in the form of Jac Schaeffer. Schaeffer most recently had a hand in the screenplay for the Captain Marvel film, which is set to hit theaters this coming March. She also penned the script for the upcoming Black Widow film. In addition to showrunning duties, Schaeffer will also write the pilot and serve as executive producer.
As we’ve mentioned in previous reports surrounding this shows, Marvel Studios is supposedly sparing no expense with them, and as such Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen are set to reprise their roles as the superhero couple in this show. So, if you were worried about getting some offbrand versions of the characters, fret not.
Still no word yet on what this story will comprise of, but it’s always good news when a studio goes back to a writer again and again. It often goes to show the strong working relationship and it implies the work she put in on those films were enough to have them return to her.
