Ever since WandaVision was released in 2021, it left us with unanswered questions, open-ended possibilities, and a hope that Vision might return for another season. After Vision’s demise in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, Wanda’s grief led her to create the hex over the town of Westview, where she puts her mind manipulation and reality-warping powers to use.

Ultimately, Wanda’s fate is decided when she has to give up on the world she created, losing her children and Vision all over again. This loss leads her to use her powers to threaten the multiverse. Although we saw Wanda emerge as a supervillain in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it quite seems to have an open-ended conclusion, suggesting there could be chances for Wanda to return. Possibly, both WandaVision sequel series might lead us to Wanda aka Scarlet Witch’s reappearance.

Now that Marvel Studios has given its nod to the release of a WandaVision Spinoff series centering the character arc of White Vision, we would again see Paul Bettany reprising his role as Vision. Set after the events of WandaVision in the year 2026, the Disney+ series will presumably have Vision explore his new purpose in life. 

According to Variety, Marvel has brought Terry Matalas on board as the Showrunner for the untitled Wandavision Spinoff, who also served as the executive producer for Star Trek: Picard. Meanwhile, Jac Schaeffer, head writer and executive producer for Wandavision is the showrunner for the other Spinoff, Agatha All Along starring Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness. The series is set to premiere its first 2 episodes on September 18th on Disney+.

The course of WandaVision being divided into two separate series, can open doors for MCU’s further expansion into other avenues, likely the magical community of witchcraft with more characters and chaos. While the much-anticipated Vision series is set to release somewhere in the year 2026, it shall be able to answer many of our questions about Vision and his fate in the MCU. 

What Happens to White Vision?

As for Vision's fate in WandaVision, we saw Hex Vision (Wanda's magically recreated version of Vision) passing on all his old memories to White Vision, who was created by S.W.O.R.D. from the dead remains of Vision. His programming directive was only to destroy both Wanda and the Vision she had created within the Hex. However, upon regaining his old memories with the help of Hex Vision, he simply flies away from Westview with this newfound knowledge. 

This is the part that serves as the turning point for White Vision, who is now on his way to exploring his true purpose. Although it's still unclear as to what happens with him next, the upcoming Vision series will likely continue White Vision’s side of the story.

Vision right from his original debut in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, rose to become one the most powerful Avengers, endowed with immense wisdom and power, that came from the source of his existence, the Mindstone. However, in Avengers: Infinity War, his powers weren't put to much use and he appeared significantly weaker than his true potential. To project into what's in for Vision this time, depends on how the Vision's journey unfolds, bridging his connection with the MCU.

Future of Vision in the MCU

Some theories suggest White Vision, armed with the memories of his past could form one of the few core Avengers of the franchise, placing White Vision as an integral character in the Avengers moving forward. The 2026 release window also coincides with the release of Avengers 5, hinting at an alignment where we could see Vision as a prominent MCU superhero.

Although there is no direct follow-up to WandaVision, the show continues with its two spinoff series that reveal the story of two of its main characters, Agatha Harkness and White Vision. Certainly, there might be a possibility where we see the Scarlet Witch appear again, connecting the dots of an untold story. 

So far there is no clarity on the cast members except for Paul Bettany, who is equally ecstatic as us for his return as Vision. But is White Vision actually the original Vision, now that he has all his memories back? This question has all of us eagerly waiting for the series to drop already.
