With filming on the Marvel Studios D+ streaming series Agatha: Coven of Chaos set to kick off over the next couple of months, news on the project has been rapidly accumulating. Joe Locke has seemingly been cast in the role of Billy Kaplan and Aubrey Plaza has also joined the project as one of a group of female supporting characters, likely witches of the titular coven. Now, new info from the Illuminerdi may have revealed the villain of the piece.
According to the report, the series is looking to cast a female to portray a “strong, evil and ancient soul” in a recurring, supporting role. The character is described as having “a chilling effect” simply through her presence and the studio is looking for actresses with previous experience with motion capture who also have either stunt or dance experience.
As is typically the case, the casting call does not reveal the true nature of the character, but in a series about witches, Chaos magic and those with experience with the Darkhold, no character comes to mind faster than ancient witch Morgan Le Fay. Ironically enough, Le Fay was among a group of characters who came to mind as a potential role for Plaza. Le Fay is about as ancient and chilling as it gets, having been alive in the comics since around 18,000 BC. As always, Marvel Studios had no comment on the casting, so audiences shall wait to find out just who the character is.
