One of the early revelations regarding casting for Agatha was that Emma Caulfield, who played Dottie in WandaVision, would be returning to the MCU with Kathryn Hahn's upcoming Disney+ project.
Not long after that, eight more actors, all of which were previously Westview citizens, were announced to be making a return: David Peyton, David Lengel, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Brian Brightman, Kate Forbes, and Debra Jo Rupp.
Now, one of those actors has posted to Instagram, cementing their return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the next magical Disney+ story.
Asif Ali Reporting for Duty
Actor Asif Ali posted some new photos to his Instagram story, featuring his return to the MCU as part of Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
Alongside the actor's face, a slate for the production can be seen that confirms the working title previously reported last year, My Pretty.
A photo of the camera shooting something off-screen can be seen. It's unclear where the production is filming, but it could be in the recently revealed Westview Mall.
Asif Ali originally played Norm in WandaVision, who worked alongside Paul Bettany's Vision at Computational Services Inc.
He was later revealed to be Westview resident Abilash Tandon.
Westview is Back in the Spotlight
It makes perfect sense that all of these actors, including Ali, would be returning, given how Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Except for this time, fans are assuming they’re going to learn more about who these people really are.
However, when it comes to more specific details, it’s hard even to hypothesize what part Ali’s character will play this time around. Hopefully, he gets to avoid any kind of further mind-control shenanigans.
It’s not just returning faces who will get more fleshed out either, as the town itself is expanding.
There is one key resident who is likely going to be the most interesting out of all the town folk: Tommy. Yes, Wanda Maximoff’s child.
However, in this case, it wouldn't be the same young version of the character who was previously seen in WandaVision. Instead, he'll seemingly become reincarnated into a different, older, Jon-Locke-sized body.
The source material is a little convoluted, to say the least.
Though, that’ll bring up the key question of what was he up to during the whole mind-control debacle in WandaVision?
Lots of questions that’ll be left unanswered for quite a long while.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos is estimated to release at some point in 2024, but an official date has not yet been nailed down.
