WandaVision villain Kathryn Hahn could soon be getting her very own Marvel spin-off series.
According to reports, the Disney Plus special will see the 48-year-old star reprise her role as Agatha Harkness in a new dark comedy.
Variety claims the show is in early development for the popular streaming platform from Marvel studios and that WandaVision creator and head writer Jac Schaeffer is lined up to write and executive produce it.
Kathryn’s performance as manipulative witch Agatha, who posed as Wanda Maximoff’s busybody neighbour in the popular miniseries, was highly praised by critics and hardcore MCU fans worldwide.
At this year’s Emmy Awards, Kathryn was nominated for best-supporting actress in a limited series for her iconic role as Agatha, which was one of 23 nominations the show received.
Although plotlines for the spin-off currently remain up in the air, fans think the series could potentially explore events earlier on in the timeline.
Agatha is a popular character in Marvel comics, in which she appears as a witch who survived the Salem witch trials, so plenty of inspiration could be drawn for possible storylines.
WandaVision premiered in January this year, the first series instalment of the MCU after a long pandemic-induced drought.
Since then, the producers have blessed viewers with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston.
The next Disney Plus special, Hawkeye, which features Jeremy Renner, will premiere on 24 November.
WandaVision season 1 is available to stream on Disney Plus.
