Marvel Studios' new Disney+ series WandaVision just released its fifth episode , which saw Wanda Maximoff living through a classic 1980s family sitcom, learning some important life lessons along the way.
The future of this Scarlet Witch spin-off is still up in the air. The show's executive producer has barely spoken about a possible second season, leaving fans to wonder if the series will continue or merely end as a limited series run.
However, with Scarlet Witch set to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Monica Rambeau confirmed to be joining Captain Marvel 2 , there still remains a possibility for other WandaVision characters to have a life beyond this show.
Now it seems a popular FBI agent may also be getting a shot at the spotlight.
Writer and director Stephen Ford shared a tweet that revealed a “Jimmy Woo X-Files” spin-off series may soon be in the works at Marvel Studios:
Uh. Wow. So. We might have actually opened some doors on my Jimmy Woo X-Files idea. I'm spending the weekend writing the pitch. Can't express how much of an underdog I am in this scenario so get too excited but cross your fingers and thanks to everyone who made it possible. pic.twitter.com/cEEIz7WSlY
Ford went on to say that fans sharing their avid support for the idea could “make this happen in some weird Deadpool viral kinda way," :
For those unaware, test footage for Ryan Reynolds' live-action Deadpool movie leaked on social media in July 2014 to high amounts of praise from fans. The excitement played a considerable role in 20th Century Fox's decision to greenlight their 2016 movie.
WHAT THIS MEANS
Jimmy Woo has been one of the biggest stand-out characters from WandaVision . From his iconic card-trick entrance, to his buddy-cop rapport with Darcy Lewis, Randall Park's Jimmy Woo has brought an incredibly fun layer to the show, and fans clearly want to see more.
The idea of Woo investigating a series of MCU mystery cases is very compelling, especially since the show would act almost as a parody of the popular drama The X-Files .
Randall Park has a long history as a comedic actor, with roles in movies such as Always be my Maybe and the series Fresh Off The Boat . Park could easily lead a more comedic MCU series for Disney+, perhaps with his new trusted ally Darcy coming along for the ride.
Even though a pitch is far from confirmation that a series is actually being put into production, the mere fact that Ford is working on one seems to indicate that the Marvel executives have quickly realized that a Jimmy Woo spin-off could actually have potential. And if the idea gains some more traction online, it looks as if Jimmy Woo may have his own show very soon.
