Paul Bettany, known for his role as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is set to star in a new Disney+ series called Vision Quest. The show received a release date window from an official listing, exciting fans of the synthezoid superhero.
Following Vision’s death in Avengers: Infinity War, fans were thrilled to see him back in action in the Disney+ series WandaVision. Thanks to the reality-bending powers of Wanda Maximoff, Vision made a comeback. However, it doesn’t end there for the beloved character.
Vision Quest Series:
Vision will receive his own Disney+ series called Vision Quest, offering fans more of his adventures. The show will explore the storyline of the SWORD-built White Vision introduced in WandaVision. Paul Bettany will reprise his role as Vision in this upcoming series.
Release Date Window:
According to the official Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) directory, Vision Quest is scheduled for a 2024-2025 season release. The listing, which includes showrunner Jac Schaeffer and other writers, describes the show as a “drama.” Notably, it is categorized differently from the upcoming Agatha: Coven of Chaos spin-off, which is labeled as a “comedy.”
While the traditional television definition places the 2024-2025 season between July 2024 and June 2025, there are factors that could lead to a delay in Vision Quest’s release. Recent delays in the MCU schedule, ongoing writers’ strike, and Schaeffer’s focus on the production of Coven of Chaos may result in the show releasing later in 2025 or even in 2026.
The Writers And Development:
Several writers have been revealed to be involved with Vision Quest. Jac Schaeffer, the executive producer and showrunner of WandaVision, will perform the same duties for this spin-off. Joining her are WandaVision alumni Megan McDonnell and Peter Cameron, as well as Eileen Shim from House of the Dragon. They will work under Schaeffer’s leadership in the writers’ room.
Impact On The MCU:
Vision Quest seems to be progressing rapidly, potentially indicating its significance in the upcoming MCU narrative. The series is expected to play a role in setting up the Young Avengers, as Marvel Studios has been building towards their adaptation for some time. With Vision Quest potentially releasing before Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in May 2025, it is possible that the team will be involved in the Multiversal storyline.
Connections With Coven Of Chaos:
Given that Vision Quest and Coven of Chaos share the same showrunner and are planned for a close release on Disney+, there may be connections between the two series. However, recent shifts in the MCU schedule have made it uncertain how closely intertwined these spin-offs will be.
While Marvel Studios has yet to officially acknowledge Vision Quest, fans eagerly await updates. The upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, scheduled for July, might provide an opportunity for the show to be confirmed and a more specific release date window to be announced.
