The upcoming Vision and The Scarlet Witch series on Disney+ could be drawing inspiration from Tom King’s wildly successful The Vision limited series.
There haven’t been many official details released about the upcoming limited series for Disney+ except for Jac Schaeffer, writer of Black Widow, being tapped to write and showrun the series with Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olson reprising their roles. The timing of the show’s announcement and details along with Tom King recently taking time off from writing an ongoing Batman comic could mean that Disney is going to adapt some of his story for their upcoming Vision and The Scarlet Witch series.
Last time we saw Vision and Scarlet Witch, they were happily on the run from the rest of the world until the Black Order rode in to take the mind stone which ended terribly for both of them. Their Disney+ series will come out after next year’s Avengers: Endgame, but it’s unclear where this story will fit in the timeline. However, if Disney is truly going after a loose adaptation of The Vision then the series will probably be set after the events of Endgame.
King’s story follows a broken Vision who is forced to delete all his memories of humanity rendering him unable to feel any emotions and desperate to feel something. Without his memories to connect him with humanity, Vision creates a family of androids that mimic what he sees as a perfect family that he thinks will be the solution to his lost humanity. As the series progresses, Vision’s “perfect” family begins to unravel at the seams culminating with his wife Virginia admitting all she has done wrong and killing herself. Vision then seems to settle happily into life with just his kids, but he’s seen trying to fix his wife and falling back into his same mistakes.
Scarlet Witch could easily be swapped into Virginia’s place in the comic with the show explaining that Vision lost his memories when Thanos ripped the mindstone from his head. From there, this show could be a pretty faithful adaption that would take place just outside the storyline in the films while expanding on Vision and Scarlet Witch’s relationship from Avengers: Infinity War and exploring family tragedy in way that hasn’t been seen in the MCU so far.
Disney+ is set to release later this year and will feature The Mandalorian, a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a Loki series, a Winter Soldier and Falcon series in addition to films and series from Disney’s huge library of content.
