Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany Welcome You to WandaVision

By Zach Johnson

WandaVision not only marks Marvel Studios’ first series for Disney+, but also its foray into the world of sitcoms—with an MCU twist, of course. Starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, respectively, the nine-episode series from director Matt Shakman and head writer Jac Schaeffer also stars Kat Dennings, Kathryn Hahn, Randall Park, and Teyonah Parris. We spoke to the cast and creative team on the red carpet at D23 Expo 2019 to learn more about the series, set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. So, before WandaVision premieres with back-to-back episodes on January 15, find out what they each had to say about the series’ sitcom influences and why, as Bettany put it­, their “bonkers,” “avant-garde” approach is perfectly suited for this visionary new era.
