Double double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble, Patti LuPone (Beau Is AfraidAmerican Horror Story) is conjuring secrets about Marvel’s WandaVision spinoff, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. I know that didn’t rhyme. You’ll get over it, I promise. On Tuesday’s episode of The View (via Entertainment Weekly), LuPone revealed she’s playing Lilia Calderu for the upcoming series, also starring Kathryn Hahn and Aubrey Plaza.

“It’s a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is in the Marvel world. I researched her. She’s hot. She’s really hot. She’s got a great body and hair,” LuPone told Alyssa Farah Griffin about her character. “I didn’t know there were witches,” LuPone said about exploring the Marvel Universe. “I didn’t know anything about the Marvel world. There are witches in the marvel world. So, we are a coven of witches and the witches are: Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and [a] Familiar – if anybody knows Heartstopper – is Joe Locke.”

While researching her bewitching character, LuPone discovered Calderu debuted in 1973. She’s “a 450-year-old Sicilian witch whose power is divination and whose trial is tarot,” she said.

While digging for dirt on the new series, co-host Ana Navarro asked if LuPone knows when the show will debut on Disney+. LuPone says the series is still in production, though she thinks it will launch sometime in 2024.

Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia, Sasheer Zamata, Debra Jo Rupp, and possibly Emma Caufield also star in Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Jac Schaefer, the creator, writer, and executive producer of WandaVision will be serving the same role for Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and it’s expected that she will do the same for the other WandaVision spinoff series, Vision Quest. The potential series would focus on The Vision (Paul Bettany) as he attempts to regain his memory and humanity after the events of WandaVision.

Are you excited about Marvel’s Agatha: Coven of Chaos? Marvel Studios has an opportunity to explore the supernatural side of its universe even more after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Werewolf By Night with this new show. With several outstanding actors ready to summon trouble for this witchy spinoff, I can’t help but be excited!
