Positive, we knew Katharyn Hahn could be returning to play her breakout character within the upcoming WandaVision spin-off Agatha: Coven of Chaos. We knew who had joined her for the present, together with Patti LuPone, Aubrey Plaza, and Heartstopper’s Joe Locke. However till at this time, we didn’t learn about its plot or characters, and it’s because of LuPone.
Talking on The View, the actor/singer introduced—possible with out Marvel Studios’ permission—she could be enjoying Lilia Calderu, an obscure comics character who’s “a 450-year-old Sicilian witch whose energy is divination and whose trial is tarot.” However she additionally gave a touch as to who her co-stars could be enjoying:
“It’s a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is within the Marvel world. I researched her, she’s sizzling, she’s actually sizzling, she’s obtained an incredible physique and hair. I didn’t know there have been witches, I didn’t know something concerning the Marvel world. There are witches within the Marvel world. So, we’re a coven of witches and the witches are Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and [their] acquainted—if anyone is aware of Heartstopper—is Joe Locke.”
There was no probability in hell Aubrey Plaza was going to be in a present about witches and never play a witch, in order that’s not shocking. Making Locke the coven’s supernatural attendant is surprising however nonetheless fairly obscure. Nevertheless, the reveal that LuPone’s enjoying Calderu is attention-grabbing as a result of she’s extremely obscure. The Marvel Fandom website says she debuted and died in the identical 1973 situation of Marvel Premiere #12, and is notable for under two issues: 1) having a child with Physician Unusual foe Baron Mordo and a couple of) guarding The Guide of Cagliostro, a magical tome which has already appeared within the MCU in the course of the first Physician Unusual film.
Assuming The Guide of Cagliostro can be in play in Coven of Chaos, it might imply appearances by Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Mordo or Benedict Wong’s Wong (with, if there’s a lord in heaven, Madisynn in tow), since I doubt Benedict Cumberbatch has the time or inclination to visitor star because the ex-Sorcerer Supreme on a Marvel TV sequence. However simply because the comics’ Lilia did a factor, there’s no assure the MCU’s Lilia will do the identical; in any case, the character apparently was the “Witch-Queen of the Gypsies” again in 1973, and that’s clearly been modified, thank goodness.
LuPone expects Agatha: Coven of Chaos to debut on Disney+ someday in 2024. Appears legit to me.
