wandavision mephisto

“Who is Mephisto?” “When will Mephisto appear?” “Is this character/rabbit/bush actually Mephisto?” Those were just a few of the resounding (and annoying) fan theories that bounced around the internet for the duration that WandaVision aired, even as there was no indication that the Marvel supervillain would appear. It was an idea that fans built up in their heads as WandaVision headed towards its (Mephisto-less) conclusion, but one that hadn’t even occurred to writer and executive producer Jac Schaeffer, who revealed that she hadn’t even heard of the character until the press tour came and suddenly, everyone was asking her about Mephisto.

wandavision agatha

WandaVision has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop talking about it. And it definitely doesn’t mean we have to stop talking about the real star of the show, Kathryn Hahn‘s Agnes, AKA Agatha Harkness. Agatha started the series as a friend to Wanda, but by the time the show wrapped up she was revealed to be a foe – but things almost worked out differently. According to WandaVision creator and showrunner Jac Schaeffer, early ideas for the series had Agatha acting as Wanda’s mentor.

White Vision

Warning: spoilers for WandaVision ahead.

White Vision, a dangerous creation of S.W.O.R.D. acting director Tyler Hayward in Marvel’s Disney+ series WandaVision, left the series finale in an unexpected way. But according to showrunner/head writer Jac Schaeffer, she was not concerned with where that version of the character ends up or what happens to him once he left Wanda’s hex around Westview. In a new interview, Schaeffer explains why White Vision’s fate is an “afterthought” and why his exit is not a “Marvel cheat.”

Jac Schaeffer interview

How does an artist put a personal stamp on a project when they’re working within the confines of a massive, interconnected cinematic universe? For Jac Schaeffer, the head writer of WandaVision, Marvel Studios’ first-ever venture into television, the answer is to combine a unique mixture of influences that mean a lot to her and create something new within that framework.

In the wake of the show’s fourth episode, which expanded the scope of the series outside the bubble of the small New Jersey town of Westview, /Film spoke with Schaeffer about how she made WandaVision her own, what Jimmy Woo and Dr. Darcy Lewis see in between “episodes” within this universe, the difference in the way peoples’ return from the Blip is depicted in this series vs. Spider-Man: Far From Home, red herrings, and more. Check out our full Jac Schaeffer interview below.

WandaVision Featurette

WandaVision premieres on Disney+ today with the first two episodes of the Marvel Studios series focusing on Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. To drum up some more hype and interest for the series, in case the positive reactions weren’t enough, a new WandaVision featurette has arrived to take us behind the scenes of the series. It’s mostly pretty standard making-of stuff, but if you keep your eyes peeled, you just might catch some Wonder Man art lingering in the background. Read More »

the hustle trailer new

It’s clear Jac Schaeffer is going to be a writer we’re following for a long time, since she wrote a screenplay for Black Widow and is running Marvel’s WandaVision for Disney+. Even now, her current film captures the hearts of ‘80s movie buffs like me. The Hustle is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway in the roles originated by Steve Martin and Michael Caine.

Penny (Wilson) is a petty con artist catfishing guys. Josephine (Hathaway) is a high class European working the long con. When Penny comes to town and threatens Josephine’s game, she tries to take Penny under her wing instead. Ultimately, they pick a target to see who can con first and win the territory.

Schaeffer took a break from developing WandaVision to discuss The Hustle by phone. Schaeffer was also a writer on Captain Marvel and wrote the short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, and directed her own screenplay, TiMER. The Hustle is in theaters now.

black widow movie release date

The long-awaited Black Widow solo movie may be coming to theaters sooner than we expected. A new report suggests that the female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe film could come only two years after it was announced to be in development. Which is completely fine by me.
