It looks like the cast for the upcoming WandaVision spinoff, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, continues to grow as we have some more casting news from Deadline. Sasheer Zamata, an alumna from Saturday Night Live, has joined the cast in an undisclosed role. Not just that, it seems that Eric André may have also booked at least an episode of the show. Jac Schaeffer is developing the series as part of their new deal with Marvel and 20th Century, which will further explore the character of Agatha Harkness, who was introduced to Marvel Studios’ first Disney+ series with Kathryn Hahn in the role.
There are still many questions surrounding what we may expect from a Disney+ project focused on the character of Agatha Harkness. There is hope that we get a better look at the magical corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the concept of witches feels like the perfect concept to combine Doctor Strange’s more bombastic look at magic with the horror elements we witnessed in Werewolf by Night.
There’s definitely a lot of potential with the concept and hopefully, it also means that Hahn‘s character will have a bigger role in the MCU moving forward. Harkness was famously the babysitter for the children of Reed Richards and Sue Storm of Fantastic Four fame. It would certainly be a fun surprise if she somehow ends up appearing in the upcoming film, even if it’s just a minor role. Well, we’ll find out what exactly Marvel Studios has planned for the character once the series releases next year.
