What viewers can only hope is the final title change for the planned WandaVision spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness has been announced. The much anticipated Disney+ spinoff series Agatha has reportedly been officially renamed Agatha: Darkhold Diaries by Marvel Studios. The program’s original 2021 announcement under the name Agatha: House of Harkness was followed by a 2022 change to Coven of Chaos before choosing its present title, Darkhold Diaries. Agatha’s premiere date has been moved from early 2024 to later that same year as a result of the name change for Marvel’s planned television series. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes that are still in effect, together with Marvel’s ambition to turn each of their titles into an event, were cited as the causes of the delay. The spinoff is anticipated to start up after the events of the 2021 limited series WandaVision, which saw the Scarlet Witch capture Harkness within Westview, New Jersey, in her “Agnes” persona. Plot specifics for Agatha are still unknown. Several WandaVision cast members, notably Debra Jo Rupp as Sharon Davis/”Mrs. Hart” and Emma Caulfield Ford as Sarah Proctor/”Dottie Jones” respectively, co-star with Hahn. Additionally announced to return are David Payton, David Lengel, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Kate Forbes, and Brian Brightman. Fans shouldn’t anticipate seeing Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch make an appearance, though.
A number of new cast members will also appear in Darkhold Diaries, including Patti LuPone, who previously revealed that she would be playing Lilia Calderu in the MCU spinoff. Acclaimed performers Aubrey Plaza and Ali Ahn will also appear in the nine-episode series, in addition to Sasheer Zamata, who will play sorceress Jennifer Kale. In the next series, all four actors’ characters will be members of Agatha Harkness’ coven, with Joe Locke – who could be portraying a young Billy Maximoff – serving as their familiar. Recently, Plaza, whose character is rumoured to be dating Agatha, lauded her experience filming the MCU spinoff series and said she “had a blast.” “I loved my character in that, too, and I think it’s the most sophisticated Marvel material out there,” she continued. So, entering that environment and particularly being with those folks was amazing. Plaza’s second appearance in the Marvel Universe is in Agatha: Darkhold Diaries. In the FX superhero series Legion, which is based on the X-Men character of the same name, she has previously played Lenore “Lenny” Busker and Amahl Farouk/Shadow King.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
