As ‘WandaVision’ Finale Episode Looms, Kevin Feige Talks Season 2
WandaVision Season 1 is coming to an end on March 5, 2021. After the penultimate episode was made available on Disney+, fans are wondering if Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are returning for a second season. Viewers have been captivated by the Marvel Studios TV show and want to find out what is in the future for Wanda and Vision. Kevin Feige recently talked about the future of the series and where fans can expect to see the continuation.
Marvel Studios keeps plans sealed tight
Fans of the Marvel franchises know that the studio is extremely secretive about its plans for the future. All of the shows and movies are interconnected and everything is kept under wraps until the time comes. As the studio planned for WandaVision, there were strict guidelines prospective actors had to follow in order to keep any spoilers from leaking.
Kat Dennings, who plays Darcy Lewis on the aforementioned series, had been a character originally introduced in 2013’s Thor. The character of Darcy had nothing to do with Wanda or Vision and for Dennings it was a surprise to hear back from Marvel.
“I never assumed that they would so when I got this call, especially for this, because Darcy has [had] nothing to do with Wanda or Vision, or the Avengers other than Thor, it was kind of like, ‘What is she doing here?’ And that was my question,” Dennings told Variety.
When Dennings got the call for WandaVision, she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) even before talking to any of the executives.
“The initial phone call comes in and it’s a secret phone call. You sign an NDA before you get the phone call,” Dennings explained. “They’re like, “How do you feel about this?” Like I’m gonna say no, at all ever to Marvel for anything. You say yes a then you’re in for a wild ride. You don’t even know what’s happening. I still don’t really know what’s happening.”
Is ‘WandaVision’ returning for Season 2?
With Marvel’s process of secrecy with their future projects, WandaVision doesn’t have a second season planned, but there’s a catch. Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently confirmed that Wanda will be leaking into the feature film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Fans will be able to see what happens to the character when that movie is released.
As far as WandaVision Season 2 goes, although Feige said there were no plans to extend the show, he didn’t completely rule it out either.
“I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision,” Feige said at the Television Critics Association panel this week.
Feige said all the Marvel series for Disney+ have been mapped out just like the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“The fun of the MCU is obviously all the crossover we can do between series, between films,” he added. “So it will vary based on the story. Sometimes it will go into a season 2, sometimes it will go into a feature and back into a series.”
WandaVision is available on the Disney+ streaming platform weekly.
