WANDAVISION: Latest Casting Details Point To Plans For Wiccan And Speed To Appear In The Disney+ Series

We've been hearing rumblings for a while now that Scarlet Witch and The Vision's children will be part of Disney+'s WandaVision series, and new casting details shed further light on that. Check it out...

As you may recall, we recently heard that Marvel Studios was looking to cast two infants for WandaVision. Now, MCU Cosmic is reporting that two eight-year-old boy twins have also joined the Disney+ project, with the codenames for their respective characters being "Timmy" and "Adam." 

In recent weeks, rumours have also done the rounds which point to these kids growing up on a weekly basis. It's thought that they'll first appear as infants in an episode based on 1950s sitcoms before the next episode moves to the 70s or 80s and they're portrayed as young boys. Then, we would see them as teenagers in a contemporary setting for an episode based on more contemporary comedies. 

These roles are perhaps most crucial for Marvel Studios, as Billy (Wiccan) and Tommy (Speed) are expected to stick around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as full-fledged superheroes and potentially members of the Young Avengers when they eventually assemble on screen. 

So, casting news for these characters will hopefully find its way online in the coming weeks. 

WandaVision is certainly shaping up to be something very different for Marvel Studios, and it appears as if Wanda's powers will spin completely out of control in some legitimately wacky ways.

Surprisingly, the sneak peek doesn't reveal any concept art from Loki but we do get a better idea of what to expect from the Disney+ series, including confirmation that the God of Mischief will travel through time and that we'll follow the version of the character from Avengers: Endgame

"There's a huge time-travel component," producer Stephen Broussard reveals. "There will be a man on the run quality to it and we get the chance to explore more human sides of Loki."
"We're finally going to see him on his backfoot," adds producer Kevin Wright. "This is him being put in a position where he doesn't have all the answers and where he's been thrown a curveball by life." The question on the lips of most fans, of course, is whether he'll return to the main timeline!

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier


"We don't want it to be all action all the time," showrunner Malcolm Spellman says in regards to what we can expect from Marvel's first TV series on Disney+. "We need to go home with these characters and we need to spend time really unearthing who they are and since we've got great actors, put them in situations where they get to really show what they can do."
Adds Zoie Nagelhout, "We can create the same exciting, high end action sequences but then inbetween those set pieces we get to dive deeper into the character beats. It's the best of both worlds." In other words, we're going to really delve into what makes both Bucky and Sam Wilson tick and that's no bad thing, especially now they're going from supporting players to leads.



Despite the fact shooting has already started, there's no new concept art for WandaVision included in this sneak peek. However, producer Mary Livanos does drop one very interest titbit.

"So much of the fun of watching this show for fans will be the unexpected discovery of where and when in the MCU this series takes place," she teases, "and how it all fits into that larger picture."

When and where? Could that teased 50s sitcom setting be more literal than we thought?



Hawkeye is another TV show that's still some way off and the concept art from the show featuring Kate Bishop obviously isn't based on any one actress in particular (Hailee Steinfeld remains the only star Marvel Studios have approached). However, producer Trinh Tran has now revealed that the focus of the series will indeed be Clint Barton passing on the mantle of Hawkeye.

"She's a new, young mentee he can train to eventually take over the mantle as Hawkeye one day," she reveals when asked about Kate Bishop's role in proceedings. With that in mind, it sounds like Jeremy Renner's time as Hawkeye is nearing its end and this show will likely serve as his final adventure.

What If?


Not a huge amount of a new details were revealed about What If? but plenty of footage from the series was revealed. However, producer Brad Winderbaum did point out that, "We're going to explore corners of the universe that might be untouched which is really exciting."

With any luck, that means we'll get to explore corners of the MCU we've never visited before, something which was seemingly evident from the appearance of a zombie version of Captain America! After all, the Marvel Zombies concept is one this series could have great fun with!
