  • Marvel is moving forward with its ‘Vision’ series.
  • Paul Bettany will return to star.
  • ‘Star Trek: Picard’ S3 showrunner Terry Matalas is in charge.

Though the company has certainly committed to slowing down its output of both shows and movies, there continues to be forward movement from Marvel when it comes to new creations, or in this case, spin-offs.

In terms of follow-ups to the successful ‘WandaVision’, we already have the Kathryn Hahn-starring ‘Agatha All Along’ on the way, and now, following initial chatter in 2022, there is official word via Variety on the series focused on Paul Bettany’s synthezoid, Vision.

What’s the story of the ‘Vision’ series?

There are no concrete plot details about the new show yet, but back when it was first mooted, there was talk of the “White” Vision looking to reclaim his memories, in a continuation of his storyline.

After Vision died at the hands of Thanos in 2018’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ he returned twice over in 2021’s ‘WandaVision,’ first as a spectral creation by his beloved, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), through magic powered by grief; then as a rebuilt, nuts-and-bolts android with a ghost white appearance and zero memory of his past life.

When the two Visions battled in the ‘WandaVision’ finale, Wanda’s Vision restored the “ghost” Vision’s memories, then Wanda allowed her Vision to fade from existence. The new show will take place after those events, as ghost Vision presumably explores his new purpose in life.

Who is making the ‘Vision’ series?

Unlike ‘Agatha All Along’ (which will be on Disney+ with its first two episodes on September 18th), the new show is being handled by someone other than ‘WandaVision’ creator Jac Schaeffer.

Marvel has hired Terry Matalas, who has worked on shows such as ’12 Monkeys’, ‘Terra Nova’, but rose to acclaim thanks to his efforts overseeing ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 3, which definitely pleased fans more than earlier seasons, to run the new ‘Vision’ series.

His work on ‘Picard’ certainly caught the attention of avowed ‘Trek’ fan Kevin Feige, and so Matalas now has the job. The only people who might be upset are those eagerly awaiting the much-talked-about ‘Star Trek: Legacy’ show seemingly set up by the finale of ‘Picard’.

It’s another sign that Marvel is switching tracks in terms of who controls its shows. Having launched its Disney+ shows with a system where head writers worked with directors (the latter of which had more control), it is seemingly changing to a model more like traditional TV where showrunners make the majority of decisions.

Who else will be in the ‘Vision’s series?

Besides Bettany, who will be back as the main character (no word yet on whether it’ll simply be called ‘Vision’ or the previously mentioned ‘Vision Quest’), there are zero details on the rest of the cast.

We might see Elizabeth Olsen back, at least in flashback, but that remains to be seen.

When will the ‘Vision’ series land on our screens?

Disney/Marvel is aiming to have the show arrive on Disney+ in 2026.
