Disney dropped several gems at Comic-Con over the weekend and one of the most exciting surprises was the news that Teyonah Parris will be joining the cast of the upcoming series WandaVision on Disney Plus.
The actress who starred in Survivor’s Remorse and If Beale Street Could Talk will play a grown-up Monica Rambeau, whom we met in Captain Marvel. In that film, she was portrayed by child actress Akira Akbar and Lashana Lynch played her mother.
WandaVision follows Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (played by Paul Bettany) and will be set in the 1950s.
“There’s quite a few other comic books that we’re pulling from and it’s going to be Wanda and the Vision, and I think at the Disney Plus launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the ’50s,” Olsen told Variety. “Paul [Bettany] and I are really excited. They have a great group of writers. I think it’s going to be a total of six hours.”
