Vision and Scarlet Witch TV Series Gets Captain Marvel Writer as Showrunner

Infinity Stone-crossed lovers.

The Vision and Scarlet Witch, a television show coming to Disney+ based off characters of the same name, has reportedly landed a showrunner familiar with the MCU. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Captain Marvel co-writer Jac Schaeffer has been named as showrunner for The Vision and Scarlet Witch. Schaeffer will also write the pilot episode and executive produce the series.

On top of this, Schaeffer is attached as a writer for the upcoming Black Widow solo film and has acted as screenwriter for The Hustle and Olaf’s Frozen Adventures. The series is expected to have Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprise their roles as Vision and Scarlet Witch (respectively). Vision and Scarlet Witch had their own run of comics featuring both Avengers fighting evil as a couple.

In the MCU, Vision was created when Tony Stark uploaded the AI J.A.R.V.I.S. into a synthetic body powered by the Mind Stone. Scarlet Witch, on the other hand, initially worked with Ultron before defecting to the Avengers. By the time of Infinity War, both Avengers were romantically involved.

It was reported in November 2018 that Scarlet Witch, Loki and other MCU characters would be getting their own spinoff shows on Disney+.

Meanwhile, the impending launch of Disney+ is likely to blame for so many Marvel shows being canceled on Netflix.
