The recently released featurette for Marvel Studios' upcoming WandaVision spin-off, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries (assuming the show keeps that title), only gave us an obscured glimpse of Aubrey Plaza's character, but thanks to some previous reports, we have a pretty good idea who she'll be playing.

The Legion alum's character is named Rio Vidal, and she is believed to be an immensely powerful witch and an ex of Miss Harkness (Kathryn Hahn). Vidal is not a name we recognize from the comic books, so there's a chance she will ultimately turn out to me a more familiar face (no, we are not suggesting Mephisto).

Now, CWGST has shared some new details on Rio - the first Green Witch - and it sounds like she's going to be integral to Agatha gaining access to the Witches Road.

This suggests that Rio and Agatha will, at least initially, be on the same side, but we have heard that Plaza is playing a villain, so a heel turn may be on the cards. If accurate, she's going to have plenty of backup.

Salem's Seven are also expected to make their debut in the series, with Okwui Okpokwasili (The Interpreter) leading the team (most likely as Vertigo).

Darkhold Diaries will focus on powerful witch Agatha Harkness, who almost managed to defeat the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in the season finale of WandaVision before being bested and trapped in Westview in her "nosy neighbour Agnes" persona. Though Olsen is not expected to appear, there's speculation that Wanda might have something to do with Harkness' release and/or reformation following the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Jac Schaeffer, who is under a joint overall deal with Marvel and 20th Television, will serve as writer and executive producer and will also helm multiple episodes along with Gandja Monteiro (Wednesday; The Chi) and Rachel Goldberg (Cloak & Dagger; Mayans M.C.)

"In the first episode, we see Agatha finally break out of a spell she has been trapped in," reads a recently released synopsis. "She can’t wait to go back to her old murderous ways only to find that she is powerless. The only way forward for her is to embark on a perilous quest to get her powers back with the help of an unlikely friend or two."

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries was originally supposed to premiere this year, but was pushed to October 2024 due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, which were recently resolved.

Idk how to feel about this 😭 the cast is awesome, the concept on paper is awesome.

But those pics and the clip made it seem very CW ish and from the scoopers, what they’re doing with Wiccan is just awful.
I don’t get it.

@MisterDoctor217 - This could be a really interesting mystical project if done right. I am a fan of creepy witch stories but I feel like social media and films like The Craft have made the concept of witches feel like pretty edgy girls with a taste for fashion.

This looks awful but damn mamma mia Aubrey Plaza

DocSpock - 11/28/2023, 8:41 PM

Plaza still gives me weird boner.

I'll watch this for her.

Like why can’t Marvel’s magical side be epic and grandiose like a fantasy movie, Lord of The Rings , or even Harry Potter?

Something that a guy from work , who’s a normal fan of the movies, told me when he saw Multiverse Of Madness , stayed with me.

He said, “then Doctor Strange conjured up some measly snakes to fight off Wanda, couldn’t he have conjured up a dragon or something more epic?”

And you knew what ? Yes why weren’t the rights in MoM more epic and grandiose?
All that money and that’s the set pieces they come up with?

I loved MoM but I understand the people who said it was lacking in various departments.

@MisterDoctor217 - the snake conjuring mirrored what strange did in the what if episode. It was a nice callback

I guess if your coworker didn't know that, it would seem lame
MisterDoctor217 - 11/29/2023, 5:41 AM
@Vigor -

Even if it was a callback , it didn’t look as cool as in the What If episode.
What I mean is that he should use spells that are more epic and can go against the Scarlet Witch, he did nothing as Epic as when he went against Thanos in Infinity War.
Vigor - 11/29/2023, 6:58 AM
@MisterDoctor217 - yeah I agree. That's the problem when you have different people at the helm each time a character appears. The Russos put out the best versions of every character my opinion

@dracula - Thee MOST pointless. Yet so many ppl will act surprised when it bombs.

I thought She was Zantana for a moment.

I have applied again to be Miss Plaza's WRT.

That kind of witchcraft lore gives me Swamp Thing, the Green and Parliament of Trees vibes.
BruceWayng - 11/28/2023, 9:13 PM
Cool so not only do we get a show centered around Agatha’s lesbian trysts with other witches but we also finally get to see, for the very first time ever, the live action introduction of THE GREEN WITCH!!!!

Who needs Ghost Rider, Blade, Brother Voodoo, Mephisto,etc. THIS is the mystica/spooky side of the MCU that everyone really wants to see

@BruceWayng - I can’t tell if you’re being serious or joking.
DarkeyeZ - 11/29/2023, 7:35 AM
@BruceWayng -Gave you a thumbs up because you managed to complain without using the word "woke". Your criticism is a breath of fresh air compared to the lazy idiots regurgitating the same "woke this" , "woke that" cry baby shit on every post that isn't about a straight white male.
hats off to you good sir.

also, your second paragraph was one of the truest things I've ever read (for those that get the sarcasm)
ElvenKingSlayer - 11/29/2023, 10:22 AM
@DarkeyeZ - Using the straight white male narrative is so lazy, please do better.

Green witch lmao another day, another toast rumor
Bucnastydathird - 11/28/2023, 9:45 PM
I'd phuck the break shoes off Aubrey Plaza...shawty looks like she likes to be in control in the bedroom too 🤤
DiegoMD - 11/28/2023, 9:54 PM
I love Aubrey. I liked Agatha. I want the Young Avengers to be a thing already and for Billy to join.

HOWEVER, I have no interest in this show. Despite me liking what I said above, I have 0 hype and 0 faith in this show. I hope that it's good, but I really don´t think that this is what the MCU needs right now!

I wish this was the Justice league dark movie with her cast as zatana, marvel is really starting to suck, 😪 a huge snore, bore fest 😴. Nobody asked for this POS show 😆.
HistoryofMatt - 11/28/2023, 11:06 PM
So Josh (and all of his alters) are just going to ignore Disney's recent SEC filing in which they ADMIT that they have been pushing ridiculous Woke politics on their audiences with their television and film content, and doing so, because their audience does NOT align with Disney's Woke values, has caused them to miss expected gains and in fact lose BILLIONS OF DOLLARS?

Just going to ignore this?
BobbyDrake - 11/29/2023, 6:50 AM
@HistoryofMatt - I don’t suppose you have a link to a good article about this do you. Heard this the other day, but doesn’t seem like this site is wanting to cover it. I would love to read about it though
OptimusPrime114 - 11/28/2023, 11:26 PM
I hate this character already.
marvel72 - 11/28/2023, 11:33 PM
She looks like The Mad Hatter.
AlexCorvis - 11/29/2023, 5:04 AM
@marvel72 - That's from an episode of Legion.

And she is supposed to be The Mad Hatter.
