The Vision and Scarlet Witch, one of the first live-action series Marvel is producing for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, has hired Captain Marvel co-writer Jac Schaeffer as head writer and showrunner.
Marvel Cinematic Universe actors Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen will reprise their roles as the powerful android Vision and the energy-manipulating Scarlet Witch, respectively, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
There’s no word on when the series will premiere, as there’s still no official launch date for Disney Plus, the company’s direct-to-consumer streaming video platform.
Schaeffer is no stranger to the Marvel universe, having worked on the script for Captain Marvel and also the Black Widow solo movie that’s currently in development.
Given both characters’ fates in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, their return in the partnered series will need to be preceded by some big story developments likely to unfold in this year’s Avengers: Endgame, which will resolve the cliffhanger that left the future of the entire MCU in question.
The Vision and Scarlet Witch will be one of several live-action series in development for Disney Plus that has the actors from the big-screen side of the MCU reprising their roles for limited series on the streaming service.
