WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney+ on January 15, 2021, beginning the exciting return to the MCU that fans have waited for since the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The series will serve as a direct lead-in to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness , in which Elizabeth Olsen will reprise her role as Scarlet Witch. For fans that may be worried that the connection might be too forced, Olsen has reassured viewers that WandaVision will feature "a natural progression" into the events of the Doctor Strange sequel.
Kathryn Hahn's Agnes is perhaps the most mysterious addition to the cast, with many curious as to how she plays into the overall narrative of the show. Little is known about the character, though she did receive her own character poster alongside the rest of the main cast.
Vision actor Paul Bettany has also teased another mystery character in the show, who is being played by someone Bettany has wanted "to work with forever."
Now, a new poster has been revealed of WandaVision 's Agnes, which starts the countdown for the upcoming series' release...
Update: In a recent tweets , Marvel Studios released a brand new WandaVision posters depicting the series four main characters, borrowing from classic 1950s television aesthetics.
Kathryn Hahn's Agnes:
Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau:
Paul Bettany's Vision:
Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff:
The tweet marks four more days until the release of the MCU Disney+ series while welcoming Agnes to the neighborhood of Westview:

WHAT THIS MEANS
Agnes has been described as a "nosy neighbor" in Westview, dropping in on Wanda and Vision now and then. Whether these visits are acts of support or a means of causing trouble remains to be seen, but some Marvel fans speculate that Agnes is actually the comic book villain Agatha Harkness.
Should this be the case, Agnes could be causing a lot of mischief for the newly-wed couple, using her own magical powers to counter Wanda's. Trailers seem to suggest that Agnes knows more than she initially lets on, possibly indicating that she could be responsible for the reality that Wanda and Vision find themselves in.
There have been some brief instances where Agnes has been in distress though, which could imply that she may be as much of a victim as Wanda. Perhaps Agnes constructed this reality, only for it to spiral out of control due to Scarlet Witch's growing powers.
Marvel fans should expect at least 3 more new posters in the lead up to WandaVision' s premiere, depicting Monica Rambeau, Vision, and Wanda Maximoff in this retro television style.
Agnes is sure to cause a stir when WandaVision launches on Disney+ on January 15, 2021.
