Disney+ is set to expand its Marvel universe by launching a new series titled "Vision", featuring Paul Bettany reprising his role as the beloved android from the Marvel comics. Bettany, known for his portrayal of Vision in three Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies and the mini-series "WandaVision", will once again bring the character to life in this much-anticipated project.

"Vision" will officially join the streaming platform's lineup in 2026. The series, which has been in development since 2022, is helmed by Terry Matalas, notable for his work on "Star Trek: Picard". While the creators have been tight-lipped about the details of the plot, sources suggest that the series will explore Vision's quest to regain his memory and lost humanity. The inclusion of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is also highly probable, given the intricate connection between the two characters in the MCU.

What Happened to Vision in the MCU?

Vision's journey in the MCU has been tumultuous and marked by significant events. In the 2018 blockbuster "Avengers: Infinity War", Vision fell victim to Thanos, which led to his dramatic reappearance in the 2021 mini-series "WandaVision". Initially, he returns as a spectral entity created by Wanda's magic, and later as a confused android known as White Vision, who has no memory of his past. The series finale saw an intense confrontation between the two versions of Vision, culminating in the Wanda-created Vision restoring the memories of White Vision before disappearing.

The upcoming Disney+ series promises to delve deeper into Vision's character, exploring themes of identity, memory, and existence, further expanding the Marvel narrative landscape. Fans can look forward to another engaging and thoughtful addition to the Marvel series on Disney+ in 2026.
