WandaVision Takes Inspiration From King and Walta's Vision

According to writer Tom King, Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision will take a cue from his and Gabriel H. Walta's The Vision limited series.

During the DC Nation panel at New York Comic Con, King dropped a little piece of information in the midst of discussing his career at Marvel's rival that seems to confirm some of the source material that will influence 2021's WandaVision.

"The way this started was I did this story called The Vision for some other company, and I got very lucky and it became a good success... and they're making a TV show out of it," he said.

King and Walta's The Vision debuted in January 2016. The story saw the former Avenger creating a wife and two children and living a suburban life in Washington, D.C. However, things quickly grew dark from there, as the book examined themes of what it means to be human. The series was critically acclaimed, so it's hardly surprising that WandaVision will reportedly take cues from it.

So far, we know little about WandaVision, except that it will at some point involve some '50s-esque trappings. Add in the first WandaVision poster, which shows the eerily happy-looking couple watching a glowing red TV (like what the clunky pun title of the show is referencing), and it seems like the themes of The Vision could work their way into Wanda's evolution and Vision's return.

WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role. Jac Schaeffer will serve as series showrunner. The show will stream exclusively on Disney+ in spring 2021.
