WandaVision: Agatha was more mentor than villain in the original script

Kathryn Hahn’s character would teach Wanda about magic in the series

The character Agatha (Kathryn Hahn) was almost very different in WandaVision: according to screenwriter Jac Schaeffer, the original version of the sorceress would be a benevolent mentor to protagonist Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen).

“In the initial conception, Agatha was like a mentor, an expert in magic,” she told Rolling Stone magazine. This version would be closer to the comic book, where Agatha Harkness teaches Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Sorceress, to better understand her powers.

One thing that never changed during WandaVision’s development, however, was the series finale, with the farewell between Wanda and Vision (Paul Bettany). Schaeffer said this was decided early in the script.

“However, in the original version, their goodbye was like one last spell Wanda needed to cast. A spell Agatha had taught her at the beginning of the series, something basic like fixing a broken vase. With the same spell, she would integrate with her trauma, and Vision would be part of her again,” he explained.

WandaVision used references to sitcoms to show the routine of the couple Wanda and Visão and how they try to fit into a normal routine. The production ran for nine episodes and is available in full on Disney+.
