A second WandaVision spin-off series focusing on Vision starring Paul Bettany is in the works at Marvel Studios for Disney+.
According to Deadline, titled Vision Quest, the potential series will be about The Vision (Bettany) trying to regain his memory and humanity. While the focus is on the Vision, there’s said to be a possibility that Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) will appear, which would make sense given how interconnected the two characters’ stories are in the MCU.
Like the other WandaVision spin-off, the Agatha: House of Harkness series starring Kathryn Hahn, Vision Quest is overseen by WandaVision creator, writer and executive producer Jac Schaeffer.
The new spin-off is unofficially named by some the White Vision project, after the most recent on-screen version of the character. Introduced at the end of episode eight 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.

The two Visions had an epic showdown in the final ninth episode of WandaVision. The “Conditional” Vision scanned White Vision’s memories, going through all the usual Vision moments of the MCU until Thanos destroys him.
Bettany was wise to reprise his role after WandaVision, a commercial hit that garnered 23 Emmy nominations, including for Bettany and Olsen.
“It was a nice culmination to all these things that Lizzie and I did together,” he said during a Deadline Contenders TV: The Nominees 2021 panel.
“We really found a path for ourselves, and that tone was different from those movies. But with Marvel you never know if you’re done or not. So I don’t want to call it over yet. This has been one of the most creative experiences of my life, joyful and free, doing this show. To see it embraced by the audience the way it was was so wonderful.”
Bettany recently joined Tom Hanks and Robin Wright in Miramax’s Here, directed by Robert Zemeckis and adapted from the screenplay with Eric Roth. He also stars in the Miramax drama Harvest Moon, for which he produced and co-wrote the script with Dana Brown. Bettany will also soon star in The Collaboration on Broadway and is currently filming a film adaptation of the play.
