As much as Visão (Paul Bettany) ‘s return to “ WandaVision’ ‘seems like simple fan service, the idea of ​​bringing the character into an alternate reality has a great basis in the comics.

During an interview with Variety, Bettany revealed how she learned of the show’s existence and what her reaction was to finding out which comics would be used with inspiration.

“Kevin Feige and [o co-presidente do Marvel Studios] Louis D’Esposito called me and I thought I would be fired from the MCU… After all, Visão was dead, ”he joked. “But when I found them, they said to me, ‘We had a TV series planned on Visão’, before they finished talking, I was like, ‘Okay, I am!’

He went on and explained the comics.

“We talked about two comics that would be the main foundation of the series. “M Dynasty” and “The Vision”… The first Wanda show creating an alternate reality across the Marvel Universe, and the other showing Vision trying to start a family in the suburbs. You know? I loved it because the series is a mix between these two comics that I love, in addition to paying homage to American comedies of the last decades.
