The upcoming Kathryn Hahn-led series will reportedly begin filming on Monday, December 5, which explains why Marvel Studios has been adding several members to its cast in the past weeks.
Now, as the show's production rapidly approaches, more cast members have been added based on a new report.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos Adds Two Stars to Cast
Deadline revealed that Ali Ahn and Maria Dizzia have been added to the growing cast of Marvel Studios' Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The exact details of the roles of the pair are still being kept under wraps.
Ahn and Dizzia will join Agatha Harkness Actress Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, Joe Locke (who is rumored to portray the MCU's Wiccan), and WandaVision's Emma Caulfield Ford, who will reprise her role as Dottie.
Ahn is known for her roles in Supernatural, The Path, Next, Billions, Orange Is the New Black, and Little Demon. Meanwhile, Dizzia is best known for portraying characters in 13 Reasons Why, Emergence, The Staircase, and The First Lady.
Who Will Ali Ahn & Maria Dizzia Portray?
While it is unknown which characters Ali Ahn and Maria Dizzia will portray in Agatha: Coven of Chaos, there's a strong chance that the actresses could be playing witches from New Salem that might be seeking revenge against Agatha Harkness.
In Marvel Comics, there is a group known as Salem Seven comprised of Nicholas Scratch's children. This supervillain team successfully kidnaps Agatha to execute her for treason against New Salem under the orders from Scratch.
It's possible that the MCU will have its own version of the Salem Seven, potentially comprised of children or grandchildren of the witches that Agatha murdered from her coven in 1693, a flashback that was shown in WandaVision.
It's likely that Aubrey Plaza will serve as its leader instead of Scratch, with her hate toward Agatha serving as her motivation to defeat her. Ahn and Dizzia will serve as its members alongside Emma Caufield's Dottie.
Dottie's surprising inclusion was already hinted at during WandaVision since her real name, Sarah Proctor, connects to the Salem Witchcraft.
At this point, it seems that an all-out conflict in Salem will push Agatha to the forefront of her own Disney+ series.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos is aiming for a late 2023 release on Disney+.
