WandaVision, the enigmatic Disney+ MCU streaming TV show, got even more bizarre today at Disney’s D23 Expo with the announcement of new and returning cast members. Kat Dennings will return to the MCU as Darcy Lewis from the Thor films and Randall Park will reprise his role as Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man & The Wasp. Kathryn Hahn will join the shared universe as the “nosy neighbor” of Wanda and Vision’s happy home life.
Details of the show are still sparse, and the sizzle reel shown at the expo featured clips of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Endgame intercut with clips from the classic sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show to give fans a sense for the tone. Writer Jac Schaefer teased that they have been “very inspired by Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke,” while star Elizabeth Olsen said the show will be “very wacky and fun.”
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige repeatedly called the show a “sitcom” set within the MCU, but the team has yet to officially begin shooting so actual footage was not ready to be shown at the panel.
Lewis, Park, and Hahn are joining the cast that was confirmed for the show back at Marvel Studio’s San Diego Comic-Con presentation: Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Teyonah Parris who will play the grown-up Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel.
WandaVision hits Disney+ in Spring 2021.
