Marvel fans are already scrambling to figure out what happens next on “WandaVision,” but series star Paul Bettany hints the biggest surprise isn’t on anyone’s radar.
Speaking to the “Lights Camera Barstool” podcast, the actor — who plays Vision on the Disney+ series — teased that a major Marvel character soon will debut. Bettany, 49, added that the character is such a big deal, folks have gone into overdrive to keep their identity a secret.
“So many things get leaked, but there’s this thing that has been completely under wraps that happens,” he said. “I work with this actor that I’ve always wanted to work with, and we have fireworks together, the scenes are great, and I think people are going to be really excited.”
“I’ve always wanted to work with this guy, and the scenes are pretty intense!” Bettany continued.
As for who that mystery character is, he said that fans will have to wait and see — but made a promise about the upcoming fourth episode, premiering on Friday, teasing that “minds are going to explode.”
Bettany teased that the alternate sitcom reality the characters currently reside and the real world will “have more conflict.”
“I don’t want to give away too much about the future episodes, but I will tell you this: There were more special effects requirements for our TV show than there were for ‘Endgame,'” he boasted. “I think they’re going to be massively surprised by the end of the show.”
Bettany, teasing a big “payoff,” confirmed “WandaVision” will set the stage for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next phase, adding, “[Fans are] going to look at the MCU in a whole new light and also have a much deeper understanding in what direction it’s moving.”
