Who's getting her own TV show? It's been Agatha all along!
Kathryn Hahn, who played the breakout role of Agatha Harkness in Disney+'s WandaVision this year has a new, solo show based around the character in development with Disney+ and Marvel Studios. The series is described as a dark comedy, and WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer would serve as the writer and executive producer.
Hahn's campy and clever witch, Agatha Harkness was a clear breakout star of the wildly popular Marvel series WandaVision. While at first she was going by the name Agnes, cozying up to Wanda and becoming her most trusted friend, we soon found out she had a lot more up her sleeve.
In one of the best twists in all of TV this past year, it was revealed that she was also a witch, and was actually behind all of the bad things happening on the show. The twist was revealed in one of the best, and campiest, songs ever written for TV, "Agatha All Along," which we've been singing along with ever since.
Hahn was nominated for an Emmy for the role for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, and the song "Agatha All Along" won an Emmy for Best Original Music and Lyrics. The song, as well as others from the show, were written by legendary songwriting and husband-wife duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
We don't know if this new series would be a prequel, or would follow how Agatha gets out of the trap that Wanda has put her in, but either way, we can't wait to see what Hahn does with the role.
Billy and Tommy were some of the first gay characters introduced into the MCU when they were included in WandaVision, even if their sexualities weren't mentioned. The next gay character to appear in the MCU is Brian Tyree Henry's Phastos in The Eternals, who will be the first gay superhero to be in a Marvel movie.
The latest trailer for The Eternals, also starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington, gave us a glimpse of Phastos' family life, introducing his husband and their son. The Eternals comes out in theaters on November 5.
