Echo is now in the rearview and the wait is on for Marvel Studios' second and only other live-action Disney+ series releasing in 2024. Is a reveal imminent? A new clue suggests it might be. Check it out...

With X-Men '97 in full swing on Disney+ and Deadpool & Wolverine fast approaching, will Marvel Studios soon pull back the curtain on WandaVision follow-up, Agatha

That's the prevailing theory because the profile picture on WandaVision's social media accounts has just been updated with a splash of familiar purple. It doesn't give us much to go on, though we'd say there has to be some significance to this when Agatha Harkness remains trapped in Westview thanks to the Scarlet Witch!

We'd caution against getting too excited about an imminent reveal because it's previously been reported that Agatha is aiming for a September launch. Disney+ has also developed a frustrating habit of promising its MCU offerings surprisingly close to their respective premieres. 

Despite it feeling like we've been waiting a long time for the series, things appear to be going well for a spin-off which has previously been dubbed "Agnes of Westview," "Coven of Chaos," "Darkhold Diaries," and "House of Harkness."

In fact, it was earlier this year when we learned that Agatha required only a single day of reshoots. 

"I wish I could tell you anything. I can tell you that it's pretty fan- fabulous, I'm going to say that," Kathryn Hahn said of her MCU return. "I was going to say fantastic, but then I decided to go with fabulous."

"It's an amazing cast. I’m in awe of everyone’s work in this show and I think people are going to be surprised," she continued. "I don't - I think they're gonna think it's one way and, of course, it's gonna go a million different avenues kinda like WandaVision."

Agatha will feature the return of many familiar faces from WandaVision, including Emma Caulfield Ford (Sarah Proctor), Debra Jo Rupp (Sharon Davis), David Payton (John Collins), David Lengel (Harold Proctor), Asif Ali (Abilash Tandon), Amos Glick (Dennis), Brian Brightman (Sheriff Miller), and Kate Forbes (Evanora Harkness). 

Kathryn Hahn will lead the ensemble, of course, while other noteworthy additions include Aubrey Plaza, Joe Locke, Patti LuPone, Sasheer Zamata, Ali Ahn, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Okwui Okpokwasili, and Maria Dizzia.

Very few official plot details have been revealed for Agatha, though we expect it to largely revolve around Agatha tracking down Billy Maximoff (or vice versa) who, like his comic book counterpart, has been "reincarnated" as Billy Kaplan. Mephisto is also expected to appear, possibly played by Sacha Baron Cohen.

Various scoopers have claimed the story will also feature the descendants of Evanora Harkness' coven - now known as the Salem Seven - coming back to claim their revenge on the woman who killed their mothers. 

Agatha is set to premiere on Disney+ later this year.

Even though I’m not particularly interested in this as of now (more intrigued by VisionQuest in terms of WV spinoffs) , I still hope this turns out well…

I did enjoy Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha in WV so fingers crossed!!.

The mcu getting back to mediocrity after d and w? Let's wait and see
SonOfAGif - 5/5/2024, 10:44 AM
@vectorsigma - I'm speculating that Marvel will now use certain Disney+ shows to introduce other obscure characters instead of doing that in the movies. For example, Joaquin Torres was introduced in TFAWS so the movie no longer has to spend time developing his character. The same way Wandavision introduced and explained the Darkhold and it's corruption. The question is what character will Agatha introduce?
StSteven - 5/6/2024, 12:44 PM
@SonOfAGif - I agree and I think that that's what Marvel's been trying to do with their D+ shows so far. Like, they introduced Ms. Marvel prior to "The Marvels" and New Falcon prior to "CA:BNW". Plus, if the rumors about a Midnight Suns movie moving forward are true, they introduced Elsa, Jack, and Ted in "WWBN". Not to mention all the characters in "She-Hulk", "Moon Knight", etc. So that now when/if the pull those characters into movies, they don't have to waste a lot of time on those characters' backstories. As long as the writing is Done well enough, all they have to do for those characters is a brief intro and then if you aren't familiar with them you can go to D+ and watch the shows that they were in to get more story. Like "Oh, hey, this WWBN guy is cool. I want to see more of him.".

I've been saying for a while now that I think that this would be the perfect way to introduce certain members of the X-Men (depending on which iteration of the team that they end up going with) so that they don't have to spend the first half of every movie giving us the back stories for all the new characters. Like, if they do end up going with the OG 5 X-Men, they could have a D+ show about Jean and Scott in high school initially hating each other before finally hooking up and heading off to Xavier's school. Likewise, they could have a show with Bobby and Hank and then will only have to introduce Warren in the actual X-Men movie.

And if ANY character deserved a D+ series it's Wolverine. Assuming that they don't introduce our new MCU Wolvie in the first X-Men movie (which I don't think they should do), having an anthology series introducing him and filling in his past (including his time with Alpha Flight) leading up to his proper introduction in an X-Men movie would be the best way to go, in my opinion. Plus, we're getting Wolvie in "DP&W" and likely again in "A:SW", so the GA can take a break from Wolvie in the movies for a bit and work their way up to him in the movies again via a D+ show.

Anyhow, just my 13 cents (inflation's a bitch). 😉

Marvel Studios is gearing up to begin promoting Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
CBM been doing it with excessive consistency since it was first announced...
Matchesz - 5/5/2024, 8:51 AM
Agatha about to have more screen time than dr strange after this show
SonOfAGif - 5/5/2024, 10:45 AM
@Matchesz - Unfortunately, Doctor Strange isn't the Sorcerer Supreme anymore. So Wong has been getting crazy amounts of screentime. Which I'm cool with.
JohnShaft - 5/5/2024, 9:08 AM
HARD PASS....I'm not the only one... A female led show centered around females, plz tell me exactly WHAT there is for a 55 year old Marvel guy to tune in for? I'm not the only one who feels this way. TRUST ME...I'm not the target audience. Just like THE MARVELS so I didn't go and was chastised for NOT going. Can't make this shit up
Matchesz - 5/5/2024, 9:20 AM
@JohnShaft - ever had a gf and they were having their time of the month and while u were just trying to watch football she took it out on you and the whole world then went on her rant about how men dont suffer as much cuz of it. Well, picture a whole movie studio ran by women and lgbtq and nonstop feminist propoganda is what u get.
bobevanz - 5/5/2024, 10:38 AM
@Matchesz - just say your an incel so we can move on
Matchesz - 5/5/2024, 10:54 AM
@bobevanz - no just grown and already had it so im not drooling over a show about lesbian witches like u
AvalonX - 5/5/2024, 1:32 PM
@Matchesz - HAHAHA. Thats exactly what it is. I wonder if Disney has freezing eggs as part of its benefits package yet?

AvalonX - 5/5/2024, 1:33 PM
@Matchesz - Bobevanz took care of the obligatory incel post. They can go back and harass people on Twitter now.

MarvelousMarty - 5/5/2024, 9:12 AM
Cancel it, it's just gonna do more harm.

@MarvelousMarty - shut yo ass up!
SolarSoldier - 5/7/2024, 11:07 AM
@Comicmoviejunki - Thank you. This is going to be dope.
TheManWithoutFear - 5/5/2024, 9:20 AM
Kathryn Hahn is a delight.
WhatIfRickJames - 5/5/2024, 10:01 AM
@TheManWithoutFear - agreed. I've had a crush on her since Stepbrothers
Gabimaru - 5/5/2024, 10:12 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - uhhh ewwww?
grouch - 5/5/2024, 9:22 AM
they're going to do a DC move where they need to get everything that's current MCU out the way before deadpool resets it all to have never have happened.
Scarilian - 5/5/2024, 9:23 AM
These shows are just going to do more damage to the brand.

They cannot afford for the brand to be damaged more, Deadpool 3 is the one shot they have at investment from the audience before Venom 3 and Kraven cause more damage to the Superhero brand and the audience have to wait over half a year before more MCU films.
HulkisHoly - 5/5/2024, 10:22 AM
@Scarilian -

Yeah I agree.

Should have cancelled it.

Maybe they were too far in production.
WhatIfRickJames - 5/5/2024, 9:43 AM
I love that they’re continuing Agatha’s story. Loved her in WV. I’m cautiously optimistic though. Again, if the writing is good, I don’t care if the characters don’t align with the comics.

People hate this and it hasn’t even come out yet.
Apophis71 - 5/5/2024, 9:56 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - No clue why so much hate for this without even a teaser yet.

Sure I get the lesser known character so not as much hype in advance till they know what it is side of things but the hate is strange for me considering the cast and how well recieved at the time Wanda Vision and Agatha's character was.

However there is an argument a lesser known characters offers more potential freedom for original storytelling than you A list where source accurate is oft more demanded (which can thus result in predictable and more formulaic).

I am very interested in what this could turn out to be considering the cast alone but then more of a sucker for all things witchcraft related :D
ItsNotForMeWahh - 5/5/2024, 10:50 AM
@Apophis71 - Well if you read a few comments up a few say it's because it's female led..

Guess the Alien franchise must be shit to them
Matchesz - 5/5/2024, 12:28 PM
@ItsNotForMeWahh - i think its funny how they claim hollywood dont respect women how they never get any lead roles so they overcompensate with shows like this and Acolyte then when a guy speaks against it all of a sudden all these old movies with strong powerful women leads pop up like Aliens, Halloween, silence of the lambs nobody complained about. Its nowadays everyone loves playing a victim
ItsNotForMeWahh - 5/5/2024, 12:42 PM
@Matchesz - Women appears in modern media

Just what the fans have been demanding for years...
YouCray04 - 5/5/2024, 12:29 PM
@MaxPaint - Don't forget the 3 Agatha fans...they have wants and feelings as well you know
HulkisHoly - 5/5/2024, 10:24 AM
Personally, WandaVision would have been better without cliche Agatha villain pulling strings. I prefer Wanda be the villain and they should have killed her off in the show rather than ruin her further in Dr Strange MOM.
BobbyDrake - 5/5/2024, 10:26 AM
They should save their money!!! Promoting this trash won’t save it!!!
DeadClunge - 5/5/2024, 10:32 AM
Can't wait, I loved wandavision!
narrow290 - 5/5/2024, 10:33 AM
Man, I really just hope the story is good. Just tell a good story. That’s it.
bobevanz - 5/5/2024, 10:38 AM
HAHA they're still going forward with this?
ItsNotForMeWahh - 5/5/2024, 10:52 AM
"I know nothing about this but it will be trash" or something
cubichy - 5/5/2024, 11:07 AM
I agree with most, its a tertiary character that no one knows or cares about, like photon, another fake character that totally bombers. The marvels are the lowest CB movie ever, no one wen to watch it. I will skip this, I don't care about Agatha, Marvel should be developing primary characters, not making them up, and especially superpowered hero's, not magic. Like someone else said, Agatha has more screen time than doctor strange, he is the magic character. This is a huge mistake, and we need to hold them accountable, skip this shit show. I am done with parodies, comedy, we need grounded movies and shows like the winter soldier, civil way using primary characters, follow canon and listen to fans.
