WandaVision Cast Say the Scripts for the Show Are “Bonkers”
With Avengers: Endgame introducing alternate timelines, it seems that from now on the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to become crazier than ever. And time may actually play a pivotal role in the upcoming WandaVision series. In a recent video interview with Entertainment Weekly, the cast of WandaVision discussed the upcoming Disney+ series, comparing it to a sort of “epic Marvel movie”.
“It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters,” leading actress Elizabeth Olsen said.
“That’s where it starts,” co-star Paul Bettany added, “and then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”

Then the cast hinted that the show will actually take on some fan-favorite comic book storylines.
“Just from starting from Age of Ultron, the things that I’ve loved about the Scarlet Witch are things we’re getting to explore now,” Olsen said. “And I’m very nervous and excited about it in all the fun ways. But I think we finally get to go down some roads in comic books that are favorites and explore, and it’s going to be a wild ride.”
“I think there’s been a real progression in the characters and the relationship and to actually be able to spend the time on that,” Bettany added. “Each time there’s more exciting stuff for us to do… The scripts we are reading so far are so bonkers.”
Eventually, Bettany concluded teasing that fans will have their mind “really blown away by it.”
