WandaVision and Scarlet Witch on Disney Streaming

Marvel’s Scarlet Witch Series Taps ‘Captain Marvel’s Jac Schaeffer As Writer
by Denise Petski
and Dominic Patten

January 9, 2019 3:14pm

Disney's The Vision and Scarlet Witch has found a writer and showrunner. Jac Schaeffer, a writer on the upcoming Captain Marvel feature, will pen the pilot and executive produce, Deadline has confirmed.


The Vision and Scarlet Witch is among the first series that Marvel Studios will be making for Disney’s streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019. Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen are expected to star, reprising the roles they originated on the big screen.


Olsen has appeared in four Marvel releases (two Avengers sequels, two Captain America films) as Scarlet Witch. The character was initially a foe of the Avengers but then joined their ranks. In the pages of Marvel Comics, the Scarlet Witch has been a compelling figure for decades with mystery surrounding her powers and heritage as well as her romantic relationship to the synthetic being called the Vision (Bettany) — all of which suggests plenty of material to mine.


Schaeffer wrote the screenplay for Marvel’s Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson that is expected to shoot later this year. She also co-wrote the screenplay for The Hustle starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, and co-wrote the Disney short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. Schaeffer, who was one of Variety’s Top 10 Writers To Watch last year, is repped by Verve, Writ Large and attorney Erik Human.

Awesome to see they got the stars from the movies to do this. All these superhero shows should do that. DC could learn a lesson instead of having so many different people playing the same character.

At least there should not be the usual amount of pickering about

short/tall
fat/thin
race
hair color
and so on...

Also, lets not forget about changes in the origin stories.

Scarlet Witch and The Vision is a better sounding title imo.

With Marvel going, price increases and mostly 2 star ( being generous ) content...
I'm about done with Netflix Streaming. Perhaps I will move back to Disc rental.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Yes, I know this is nitpicking, but it was 3 Avengers movies and 1 Captain America film.

Anyway, of all the Marvel shows they have planned, this and She-Hulk have me interested. This one though seems odd as it's rumored to be a comedy.

The comedy aspect could be along the lines of the Ant Man movies rather than a network sitcom.
