WandaVision, the upcoming Disney+ Hotstar series from Marvel Studios is centered around the two Avengers, Scarlet Witch and Vision. However the series will also feature some other characters that have appeared in past movies. Given the new information we have from the trailer so far, the series promises to be an interesting ride with plenty of quirky Marvel’s heroes and supporting characters. Here are the characters we know are making a comeback.
Let’s start with the Wanda in WandaVision. Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) was one of the Avengers who didn’t get as much screen time in the movies, but she co-stars with Vision (Paul Bettany) in this new series from Marvel. In fact, since she is mourning the death of Vision in the movies it’s possible that the whole show revolves around her using her power to bend reality to cope with this loss. The entire show may be made of Wanda’s visions (see what they did there?).

Monica Rambeau (Akira Akbar) made her first appearance in the MCU as a child in Captain Marvel. Fans of the movies have theorised that she was introduced to eventually replace Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as Captain Marvel. This would also be in line with her comic book counterpart, where she is the second Captain Marvel.

Jimmy (Randall Park) was an FBI agent and minor comic relief character in Ant-Man and The Wasp, but his scenes were hilarious. Getting more banter from the neurotic agent is something fans of Marvel’s comedic side can look forward to.

Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) was the wisecracking colleague of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Thor’s love interest in his first two MCU outings, but she hasn’t appeared in the movies since Thor: Ragnarok took the wacky adventures of the god of thunder off-planet. Darcy hasn’t been in any of the MCU movies since Thor: The Dark World (2013). In a surprising turn of events, she’ll finally make her return in WandaVision.
