In the MCU, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) was experimented on, alongside her brother Quiksilver, by Baron von Strucker and terror organisation Hydra. She has magical, reality-warping powers (“Her thing is neuro-electric interfacing, telekinesis, mental manipulation,” as Agent Maria Hill put it in Avengers: Age of Ultron), with glowing red energy appearing when she uses them.

Vision (Paul Bettany) was the Iron Man A.I. JARVIS implemented into a synthetic vibranium android body with the yellow Infinity Stone, the Mind Stone, embedded in his head. The two, who had exhibited hints of a romantic relationship in the course of the MCU films in which they appeared after Avengers: Age of Ultron were seen to be a romantic couple in Avengers: Infinity War before the infamous Thanos snap.

The release date for The Vision and Scarlet Witch is currently unknown.
