The other day, DiscussingFilm reported that television director Matt Shakman was in talks to direct an undisclosed Marvel series on Disney+. They theorized that it could be either Loki or WandaVision, and the latter was confirmed today at D23 Expo.

SlashFilm was on hand at the event to confirm that Shakman was announced for the project.

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are back to reprise their roles as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and The Vision (respectively) in WandaVision, a Marvel Studios Disney+ show which Olsen promises will explore those characters in a deeper way than they’ve been explored so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s what we learned from today’s D23 presentation about the new series, including the news that Matt Shakman will direct and what other MCU characters will show up.

Matt has previously worked on Fargo, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, The Boys, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

The cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Teyonah Parris, Randall Park, Kathryn Hahn, and Kat Dennings.

The series will air on Disney+ in Spring 2021.
