In addition to revealing her role, LuPone also revealed additional concrete details about Coven of Chaos. LuPone stated that Calderu will be a member of a coven that also includes Harkness, as well as the yet-to-be-announced character played by Aubrey Plaza. Furthermore, Heartstopper‘s Joe Locke will play a “Familiar.”

The description LuPone gave of her character, Calderu, is a departure from the source material. For one thing, Calderu has appeared in only a few Marvel Comics stories. She was both introduced in “Portal to the Past” by Steve Englehart, Mike Friedrich, Frank Brunner, Crusty Bunkers and John Costanza, included in 1973’s Marvel Presents #12. According to Calderu, the MCU incarnation of the character will be a 450-year-old Sicilian witch with the power of divination and “whose trial is tarot.”

The entirety of WandaVision is currently streaming on Disney+.
