Following the resolution of the historical SAG-AFTRA strike, many projects faced the chopping block or were put on hold infinitely. MCU wasn’t spared from delays and complications, and several projects were rumored to be all but canceled. More than 30 projects revolving around Marvel-based characters are in development both when it comes to MCU and SSU (Sony’s Spider-Man Universe), but only a fraction of them have confirmed release dates.
One MCU project that was supposed to lead to plenty of spinoffs was WandaVision. ‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’ is the closest one to release, being scheduled to release sometime next year in September. Next, we have Vision Quest, a project revolving around White Vision, which is, along with Wonder Woman, rumored to be a limited series.
But, one additional project that was never confirmed to be actually in development is a show focusing on Wiccan, a teenage son of Scarlet Witch who inherited her magical powers and is a member of the Young Avengers. Now, the industry inside Daniel Richtman has scoops that not only is the series still in development, but it’s also supposed to lead into a standalone Scarlet Witch movie, confirming that her story is not quite over in the MCU.
Richtman added that the studio is discussing how to adapt the The Children’s Crusade storyline for the MCU. ‘The Children’s Crusade’ is a Marvel Comics storyline that primarily involved the characters from the Young Avengers and the Scarlet Witch. The storyline was published in 2010-2011 as a nine-issue miniseries.
In ‘The Children’s Crusade,’ the Young Avengers, a group of teenage superheroes, embark on a quest to find and confront the Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff. The Scarlet Witch caused a catastrophe with reality-warping abilities, and her actions in the ‘Avengers Disassembled’ and ‘House of M’ storylines had significant consequences for the Marvel Universe.
In any case, fans of the Scarlet Witch and WandaVision series have a lot to be excited about if the rumors are true.
