Paul Bettany Shares Marvel Studios’ ‘WandaVision‘ Will Evolve From Sitcom to Action. Recently, the cast of Marvel Studios WandaVision appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared their excitement and stories leading up to the premiere of the new series this Friday, Jan 15th. Paul Bettany shared what to expect from the series and also shared a funny story about how the pitch meeting with Kevin Feige had him worried!
Bettany shared with Kimmel, “I got a call from Kevin Feige and he said, ‘Come and see me and Louis D’Esposito,’ and I was like, ‘Ahh, I’m getting canned.’ I went in to see them and thought they were being generous about it and were gonna let me down gently and, to cut it off at the pass, I walked in there and said, ‘Look, guys, this has been a great run and thank you so much,’ and they went, ‘Are you quitting? We were gonna pitch you a TV show.’ And I went, ‘Ohh, yeah, okay.’”
Lucky for us it was just a miscommunication between the Marvel Studios Head and Actor, and all is well with both parties who are equally excited to share this new action packed adventure. Paul explained to Kimmel that all is not as it seems and the series will evolve over the course of the episodes, stating, “We hurtled through the decades and we hit different genres of sitcoms and then Vision begins to think that this is getting a little weird and, in the end, you end up in [a] full, MCU action movie.”
