“Agatha All Along” isn’t the only “WandaVision” spin-off in the works. A series about Vision starring Paul Bettany has been confirmed.

“WandaVision” creator Jac Schaeffer was previously developing a Vision series but shifted focus to the Agatha show. Marvel Studios has hired “Star Trek: Picard” executive producer Terry Matalas to take over as showrunner.

Matalas was showrunner of “Star Trek: Picard” for its second and third seasons. For the series finale, Matalas was nominated for the Astra TV Award for Best Directing in a Streaming Series, Drama and won the award for Best Writing.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is a “Star Trek” fan and appeared with Matalas on a February episode of “Star Trek” podcast “Inglorious Treksperts.”

Matalas was the creator and showrunner for Syfy’s “12 Monkeys” and executive producer and showrunner of season 4 of CBS’ “MacGyver” reboot. He’s also written for “Star Trek: Enterprise,” “Terra Nova,” “Nikita,” and “Nightflyers.”

The Vision series is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in 2026. It’s Marvel’s first new live-action series pickup in almost two years.

Vision, based on the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name, was introduced in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015). He’s a Synthezoid created by Ultron but stolen and brought to life by the Avengers using Iron Man’s J.A.R.V.I.S. AI. Bettany originally voiced J.A.R.V.I.S.

In “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), Thanos killed Vision to get the Mind Stone that powered him. Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), brought Vision’s body back to life years later, as seen in “WandaVision.” She also created a version of Vision to live in her mental projection. The two versions faced off during the show, with Wanda’s mental Vision restoring his physical counterpart’s memories before he himself vanished from existence.

Bettany will presumably portray the “White Vision” in the new series, which has not been named.
