More details have come to light about the new Marvel shows for Scarlet Witch and Vision. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of the writers of the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, Jac Schaeffer, has been hired to write the new shows for Disney.
Schaeffer will also serve as the showrunner for both programs, which will air on Disney’s new streaming network, Disney+. As rumoured, the actors who play Vision and Scarlet Witch in the Avengers movies, Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olson, are expected to reprise their roles for the new streaming shows.
Schaeffer also wrote the screenplay for the Black Widow movie starring Scarlet Johansson. Her ties to Disney and Marvel run deeper still, as she also co-wrote the script for the Frozen short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.
Marvel is also working on new shows for Loki, and Tom Hiddleston is expect to come back for that one. Another show will be a joint adventure featuring Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
The next big Marvel movie is Captain Marvel, which stars Brie Larson; it’s due out in March. It’ll be followed by the hugely anticipated Avengers: Endgame in April.
