How big is WandaVision, the new MCU Disney Plus series starring Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision, going to be? One actor has described it as a “full-on action movie” while, as luck would have it, another returning Marvel castmate seems to think the show is still coming out in a matter of weeks.

Teyonah Parris, who plays the grown-up Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel in WandaVision, told The Undefeated (opens in new tab) (H/T Screen Rant (opens in new tab)): “I’m so happy to be a part of this universe. And to be Monica Rambeau, she’s such a badass in the comics. I just can’t believe that this is happening. This is full-on action movie, mixed with sitcoms. It’s wild. It’s wild. I think people will be very excited.”

That already plays in to what we know about WandaVision. Namely, that we don’t know very much. The WandaVision trailer was a dazzling display of sitcom tropes from yesteryear mixed in with a trippy tale of loss and grief – with some surprise MCU returns thrown in for good measure.

One such MCU comeback involves Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis, returning from Thor and Thor: The Dark World. She even teases the release date, suggesting that 2020 is still on the cards.

“As far as I know, [Disney] are going to try and get it out this year,” Dennings said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab).

“Anyone who liked Darcy from the [Thor] movies will be thrilled,” Dennings teased, adding: “It was somewhat of a surprise what they had planned for her.”

WandaVision is all set to kick off Marvel Phase 4 and, potentially, could be MCU’s most transformative chapter yet. Hopefully we see it this year.
