Fans of Disney+’s WandaVision will be chanting the series’ catchy limerick “Agatha All Along” once again. In a conversation with Rotten Tomatoes, Comicbook.com reports Marvel Studios’ head orchestrator, Kevin Feige, confirmed Agatha Harkness’ return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe would happen sooner than expected.
“Someday. Someday soon. You will see Kathryn Hahn in Knives Out 2 next, then maybe an assortment of other things,” Feige said via Comicbook.com. “But within the MCU, it can’t come soon enough. Let’s put it that way.”
Many suspected Hahn’s (I Know This Much Is True, Mrs. Fletcher) wicked witch of Westview would probably pop up in the future given how her character’s arc ended: Elisabeth Olsen’s (Avengers: Endgame, Captain America: Civil War) Scarlet Witch trapping Agatha in her role of Agnes in the real New Jersey suburb. However, with this new tidbit coming straight from Feige’s mouth, fans could prepare to see Agatha as early as next year.
According to Comicbook.com, the events of WandaVision are directly linked to Benedict Cumberbatch’s (The Mauritanian, The Courier) Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness which is set for an early 2022 release. Directed by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Spider-Man 2), the film also includes Olsen reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff. We could assume Hahn will make an appearance in the future film which is being labeled as the MCU’s first horror entry. The film will also see the return of Dr. Strange’s Benedict Wong (Deadly Class, Gemini Man) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Infinite, Locked Down) in their roles as Wong and Baron Mordo, respectively.
The role of Agatha Harkness spurred an outpouring of support for Hahn as the nine-episode series ran from January to mid-Febraury this year. The role also garnered Hahn an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series at the ceremony this year. Hahn faces competition that includes two Hamilton nominees, two actresses from HBO’s Mare of Easttown, and Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit‘s Moses Ingram (Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Tragedy of Macbeth).
