The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Jac Schaeffer, one of the writers behind Captain Marvel, has signed up to be the writer and showrunner for the first Marvel Studios series, The Vision and Scarlet Witch, for Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+.
Vision and Scarlet Witch are some of Marvel Comic’s most enduring characters, with a love story that’s been told through many decades. Vision is a synthezoid who was created by Ultron, one of the Avengers’ greatest enemies, and is a being who longs for human understanding. Scarlet Witch, alter ego of Wanda Maximoff, has various sorcery abilities. The two have married and had kids in the comics.
The report states that Jac Schaeffer will write the script and serve as executive producer for the series, which is expected to see Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprise the roles they’ve been playing on the screen in multiple Marvel Studios films.
She will pen the pilot and executive produce, say sources.
