There are a seemingly endless number of stories to be told within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Disney Plus is happy to capitalize wherever it can. Experiencing streaming success with Marvel Studios television series such as She Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022), Loki (2021), Hawkeye (2021), and more, Disney has released details for the spinoff of one of its most acclaimed series, WandaVision (2021).

Agatha: Coven of Chaos will follow Wanda Maximoff’s (AKA the Scarlet Witch) witch nemesis Agatha Harkness, played by Kathryn Hahn. Hahn’s antagonist opposite Elizabeth Olsen in WandaVision was a quick hit with Marvel fans, who are certainly looking forward to the new series.

Here’s the hot gossip about the show that currently filming right now!

Wandavision creator Jac Schaeffer is also the showrunner for Agatha: Coven of Chaos, which was originally announced as Agatha: House of Harkness. Rachel Goldberg (American Horror Story) and Gandja Monteiro (Wednesday) are set to direct, creating a pretty dynamic female-led operation!

Get ready for some famous faces, new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to join the cast! Deadpan comedy goddess Aubrey Plaza is rumored to play a villainous witch in Agatha’s coven.

Also, absolute Broadway legend Patti LuPone will be a part of the project. LuPone’s character, Lilia Calderu (AKA Witch-Queen of the Gypsies), is “a 450-year-old Sicilian witch whose power is divination and whose trial is tarot.” Plus Patti admittedly knows very little about the Marvel Universe. This brings me to the most chaotic point…

Agatha: Coven of Chaos will be a MUSICAL. A sing-y, dance-y Marvel witch musical. I can feel the chaos from here!

How much of a musical the show will be isn’t totally confirmed. However, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are reportedly writing the score. LuPone also confirmed she’s at least singing backup for Hahn’s Agatha.

While Elizabeth Olsen isn’t officially slated to make an appearance, Marvel fans are hoping and making speculations that she will!

Filming should be wrapping up soon in Atlanta, which means at least a trailer by summer and hopefully a Halloween release date. That may be too much to ask, but the theming would be so on point.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
