MCU’s Mephisto Is Aubrey Plaza In Awesome WandaVision Spin

Aubrey Plaza becomes the MCU’s version of Mephisto in fan art for WandaVision spin-off Agatha: Coven of Chaos after her casting on the show was announced.

Aubrey Plaza stars as Mephisto in new fan art for WandaVision’s upcoming spin-off series, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to diversify in terms of content and characters, many more series will premiere on Disney+ in the months and years to come. One of those series is a spinoff of the MCU’s first live-action Disney+ show, WandaVision. Starring Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision, the genre series introduced newcomer Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) to the MCU and a spin-off series centered on this character has been announced at fall 2021.

Although plot details for Agatha: Coven of Chaos are still unknown, the series has been described as a dark comedy and will feature the return of Dottie Jones/Sarah Proctor (Emma Caulfield Ford) from WandaVision, implying whether the series takes place during or after the events of WandaVision. Last week, additional cast members Joe Locke, Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia and Aubrey Plaza were announced in undisclosed roles. After heavy speculation about Mephisto appearing in WandaVision came to nothing, some wondered if the demonic character could appear in the witchy spin-off series, and new fan art takes the theory one step further by placing Plaza in the villainous role.

Artist Boss Logic imagines Plaza as Mephisto in a shiny version of the MCU’s potential villain reveal. Boss Logic recently created a rendering of Sacha Baron Cohen as Mephisto as the actor has been the subject of MCU casting rumors for the past month. While Cohen is reportedly in talks to play Mephisto in the upcoming Disney+ series Ironheart, it’s entirely possible the MCU is gearing up for another surprise villain reveal that will see the character gendered for Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Based on fan art and Plaza’s talent for playing sinister characters, it’s an exciting possibility to consider. See the post above.

Who else could Aubrey Plaza play in Agatha Coven Of Chaos?

If Plaza were to play a different character in Agatha: Coven of Chaos, there are several possibilities. Given the title of the show, it seems that Agatha’s relationship with her past or present clan of witches will be explored, so Plaza could easily have been cast as another witch. Agatha’s story dates back to Salem, Massachusetts, where she was nearly executed by her clan for practicing dark magic before killing them instead. Plaza’s character may have been part of her clan at the time and seeks Agatha in the present, or she could be a rival witch, drawn to Westview in the same way Agatha is. Rather than playing a witch like Agatha or a Satanic Mephisto, Plaza could also appear as the demon Marduk Kurios’ daughter, Satana (Ana).

After the Halloween special Werewolf By Night amplified the supernatural element in the MCU, Plaza could also star as Nina Price, aka Vampire By Night, the niece of Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal). With Blade slated for an early 2024 release and Agatha: Coven of Chaos slated for late 2023, perhaps Plaza’s character will bring vampires center stage in the MCU just in time for the vampire hunter’s debut. Considering Plaza is adept at playing twisted characters and the actor has an affinity for all things dark and supernatural, it’s safe to say she could be cast in a villainous role in the new series. If Plaza ends up donning the mantle of Mephisto in Agatha: Coven of Chaos, viewers can expect an unexpected twist on the satanic trickster.
