Marvel Vision Series Greenlit At Disney+ With Paul Bettany To Reprise Role

Disney+ is set to resurrect Vision in a new series set for 2026. Paul Bettany will reprise his role as the Marvel character, who appeared in three Marvel films and WandaVision.

Star Trek: Picard EP Terry Matalas has been tapped to serve as showrunner on the new series.

More from Deadline

Details of the new series have not been revealed, but as we previously reported, the Marvel Vision series had been in development at Disney+ since 2022. At the time, we heard the series would center on The Vision (Bettany) trying to regain his memory and humanity, While the focus is on Vision, we also heard there is a possibility for Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) to appear, which would make sense given how interconnected the two characters’ stories are in the MCU.

After Vision was killed by Thanos in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, he returned twice in 2021’s WandaVision.

The new spinoff was being unofficially referred to by some as the White Vision project after the most recent on-screen version of the character. Introduced at the end of Episode 8 of WandaVision, White Vision was created by S.W.O.R.D. by rebuilding and reactivating Vision’s body and sent on a mission to destroy Wanda and her “Conditional” Vision.

The two Visions had an epic showdown in the final ninth episode of WandaVision. “Conditional” Vision scanned the memories of White Vision, which jog through all of regular Vision’s moments in the MCU up to Thanos destroying him. In a moment of clarity, White Vision declared, “I Am Vision,” swooped up to the sky and disappeared, setting up the potential spinoff.

Matalas created and served as showrunner/director for the critically acclaimed time travel show, 12 Monkeys for Universal Cable Productions. Most recently he served as showrunner/director for the third season of Star Trek: Picard.
