Kat Dennings, Randall Park and Kathryn Hahn have joined the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series “WandaVision,” Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said during the forthcoming streaming service’s showcase at D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on Friday.
Starring Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprising their roles as Vision and the Scarlet Witch from the Marvel film franchise, “WandaVision” is set to debut on Disney+ in 2021.
Dennings and Park will be reprising their roles from earlier films — Dennings co-starred in the “Thor” movies, while Park appeared in “Ant-Man and the Wasp” — while Hahn is a newcomer to the franchise.
Few story details have been made public so far, but Marvel said at Comic-Con that the show would lead directly into the events of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” It was also announced at the time that the show would feature Photon, a grown-up version of the “Captain Marvel” character Monica Rambeau.
The “WandaVision” casting news was one of several big Marvel announcements made at the studio’s presentation on Friday, along with news that Wyatt Russell has joined the cast of the streamer’s “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” series and that three new Marvel shows have been greenlit for the service — “Ms. Marvel,” “Moon Knight” and “She-Hulk.”
In case you haven’t heard, Disney is preparing the launch of Disney+, its own streaming competitor to challenge Netflix and Amazon. The upcoming platform will be available beginning Nov. 12 for $6.99 a month (or as part of a $12.99 bundle with Hulu and ESPN+).
Along with being the home of its own vast library of content, Disney+ will feature original “Star Wars,” Marvel Studios, Pixar, National Geographic and Disney productions.
