In news that is bound to have you signing up for Disney+ faster than you can name the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it looks like Disney’s upcoming series WandaVision is set to have a cameo from none other that Doctor Strange.

According to entertainment insider Charles Murphy (Murphy’s Multiverse), Benedict Cumberbatch is rumoured to be present on set during the final week of WandaVision filming.

Murphy explained that this is all just rumours and should all be taken with an enormous grain of salt at this stage, but considering Marvel CCO Kevin Feige has already confirmed that WandaVision will directly tie into Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness, it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibilities.

We don’t know much about what to expect in WandaVision just yet, but Murphy’s Multiverse has also shared the rumour that ‘Nightmare’, a villain from the Doctor Strange comics, could make an appearance in the latter half of the series.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has already indicated that he’d love to introduce Nightmare and the Dream Dimension in the Doctor Strange sequel, so this could perfectly tie the projects together.

Since its announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, we know that WandaVision is Marvel’s wild take on a 60s sitcom. The six-episode series looks like it’ll be jam-packed with the good shit from Marvel Studios.

The first half of the series, according to Murphy’s Multiverse, will pay “homage to classic sitcoms from different eras” before we sit down and buckle up for all of the intense action of the second half.

Filming for the upcoming Disney+ show kicked off in front of a live studio audience in November with Elizabeth Olsen returning as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision.

So far, Olsen’s character has only been known as Wanda in the MCU, but the new series will introduce her Scarlet Witch persona, which is bound to make for some spicy TV.

“Having the opportunity to tell more of their story, to see more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision Vision, and — most importantly — reveal a name that I’m not even sure we’ve said in the MCU yet, but we absolutely make a big deal of in the show, which is that Wanda is in fact the Scarlet Witch,” Feige revealed in his recent CCXP (Comic-Con Experience) panel.

“What does that mean, that she is the Scarlet Witch? And that’s what we play into in this show, in ways that are entirely fun, entirely funny, somewhat scary, and will have repercussions for the entire future Phase 4 of the MCU.”

WandaVision will kick off Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will premiere on Disney+ in 2021.
