Marvel’s Vision Quest, a sequel series to WandaVision focusing on the White Vision (Paul Bettany), has a likely release window.
While Marvel Studios hasn’t announced a specific release date, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) directory lists Vision Quest with a “2024-2025” release window on the official pages of showrunner Jac Schaeffer and several writers. However, it’s unclear if the ongoing WGA strike could delay that release window. Schaeffer was the creator, executive producer and head writer on WandaVision, and is also in charge of its sequel series Agatha: Coven of Chaos, which releases Winter 2023. When news of Vision Quest first broke in Oct. 2022, Schaeffer was attached to the project as its showrunner.
Few details about Vision Quest‘s story have been revealed, but the initial announcement specified that the show follows the rebuilt White Vision after he departs at the end of WandaVision. After Vision’s death in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos removed the Mind Stone from his head, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) used her magic to create a copy in Westview. However, corrupt S.W.O.R.D. operative Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) was secretly rebuilding the synthezoid in a new all-white body, and he sent the amnesiac Vision to battle Wanda and the false Vision until White Vision had his memories restored. The plot borrowed elements from a story arc in the West Coast Avengers comic, which was also called “Vision Quest.”
WandaVision’s Story Continues With Vision Quest and Coven of Chaos
Vision Quest will be the second direct WandaVision spinoff, as Agatha: Coven of Chaos will focus on the villainous Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) who battled Wanda in the original show. Harkness was originally a witch who practiced magic during the Salem Witch Trials and was corrupted by a powerful grimoire called the Darkhold. Several hundred years later, she’s drawn to the powerful magic of the “Westview Anomaly” and battles Scarlet Witch until her powers and the Darkhold are taken away from her. Coven of Chaos is billed as a dark comedy, and will include Aubrey Plaza, Patti LuPone and Joe Locke in its cast.
Marvel Studios reportedly delayed several of its Disney+ shows even before the WGA strike began. While Secret Invasion will still come out in June 2023 as planned, several other shows like Loki Season 2, Echo and Ironheart have been pushed back. Season 2 of Loki is still reportedly coming out later in 2023, while Echo and Ironheart do not currently have release dates.
WandaVision is currently available to stream on Disney+.
