Kevin Feige Confirms That We Will See WANDAVISION's Kathryn Hahn Return To The MCU As Agatha Harkness
We don't know where she'll show up again, but Kevin Feige has confirmed that WandaVision star Kathryn Hahn will reprise the role of Agatha Harkness in the Marvel Cinematic Universe "someday soon."
Kathryn Hahn made quite the impression as the evilly entertaining Agatha Harkness in Disney+'s WandaVision, and given the events of the series finale, fans have been wondering if and when we might see the actress return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
During an extensive interview with Rotten Tomatoes (they cover a lot of ground, but very little is new), Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige confirmed that Agatha will indeed make an appearance in an upcoming MCU project - though he didn't specify which one.
"Someday. Someday soon," Feige replied when asked when we'll see Miss Harkness next. "You will see Kathryn Hahn in Knives Out 2 next, then maybe an assortment of other things. But within the MCU, it can’t come soon enough. Let’s put it that way."
Feige also revealed how Hahn ended up landing the part in the first place.
“We were all fans of [Kathryn Hahn] at Marvel Studios. And she had come in for a general meeting coincidentally right around the time we were trying to cast Agnes-slash-Agatha. It was one of those, ‘Why didn’t we think of this before?’ Louis D’Esposito [co-president of Marvel Studios] actually sat down and had a general [meeting] with her. And it very quickly went from that: She’s great. What could she do for us someday? Anyway, who’s going to play Agatha? We really have to cast this part. Wait a second… It was honestly almost exactly like that."
Agatha is not expected to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (there's always a chance Hahn filmed a cameo in secret), but it sounds like Feige has a plan in place for her eventual return, and it may not necessarily be as a villain. Although Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) left her trapped in Westview as "Agnes," they actually end up joining forces and becoming uneasy allies in the comics.
