The Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t kicking off Phase 4 the way it was originally planned. But MCU fans are thrilled simply to have new content for the first time in over a year. Rather than Black Widow, however, Phase 4 begins with Disney+ series WandaVision. And the much-anticipated Marvel show just added a last-minute addition to its cast, a star of TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The marketing for WandaVision has kept plot details at a minimum. But here’s what we know for sure. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles from the films. And while Wanda aka Scarlet Witch (Olsen) and Vision (Bettany) seem a happy couple, nothing is as it seems. 

Kathryn Hahn also appears as a mysterious new character. And Teyonah Parris is the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, a character last seen in Captain Marvel. Meanwhile, Kat Dennings and Randall reprise their roles from earlier films too.

Fans have long speculated WandaVision will deal with Scarlet Witch’s reality-altering abilities. These were merely alluded to in the movies but are featured more prominently in the comics. And considering Avengers: Endgame introduced multiple timelines, this fits within MCU canon.

The show just added a ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ star

So MCU fans likely have many surprises in store in WandaVision. Marvel and Disney have done a remarkable job keeping spoilers at a minimum. In fact, just days before the show’s premiere, one of its stars finally went public with their role.

Emma Caulfield — best known as Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer — revealed on Twitter that she has a mysterious role on WandaVision. Of course, Caulfield didn’t offer fans so much as a hint about how her character factors into the show’s unpredictable story.

However, adding a Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumnus makes a lot of sense. After all, Buffy creator Joss Whedon has a long-standing relationship with Marvel, having directed the first two Avengers films. And WandaVision’s genre mash-up feels very much in line with Caulfield’s time in Sunnydale.  

I know things are crazy but I’m happy to share this! #WandaVision @disneyplus
