The cast of 'WandaVision' explains how the weirdest Marvel project came to be

WandaVision is perhaps Marvel's most ambitious project, a mash-up of Leave it to Beaver-esque sitcoms and Avengers superheroes Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany).

Olsen, Bettany and co-star Teyonah Parris recently spoke to Yahoo Enterainment about how this project, a television miniseries, is a departure from their usual roles.

"We also get to see aspects of them that we don't get to see in the Marvel movies," Olsen said.

"We're usually holding down this like emotional thread of love and sincerity," she said, referring to their roles in the Avengers films. But now, she said, they're excited for the opportunity to "be part of the humor and the jokes and the mystery, and we get to play so many different elements between the two of us."
