“WandaVision” star Paul Bettany gave fans a small idea of what the upcoming Marvel series on Disney Plus is all about when it premiers Friday.

“Yes, initially, it really was [relieving], but it’d be a pretty boring TV show if it stayed that way,” the 49-year-old actor told Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Thursday.

He then talked about his Marvel‘s character Vision’s new series, alongside Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff. Bettany said fans will see that the couple’s “cute” sitcom life “can’t stay that way forever.” (REVIEW: ‘The Mandalorian’ On Disney+ Is A Must Watch Show For ‘Star Wars’ Fans)

“What you will begin to realize is that it’s not an arbitrary decision or a cute decision to set this story in these sitcoms,” he added. “What’s wonderful about the comfort level that comes with these sitcoms is that you have a seemingly insoluble problem that when the couple unite, the problem becomes eminently soluble.” (RELATED: Watch The Latest Electric Trailer For ‘Captain Marvel’)

“Unfortunately, real life isn’t quite like that, and it can’t stay that way forever,” Bettany continued.

A description about the show on IMDb read,“Blends the style of classic sitcoms with the MCU in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision -two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives-begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.”

Bettany went on to reveal that, unlike some actors, he wanted to know the character’s overall story arc rather than have it be a mystery.

“I wanted to know where it was going so that I could pitch where he starts to get confused and when he starts to really investigate what the hell is going on in this town,” the Marvel star shared. It seems like a really strange place that is compelled to change its decade every week.”

The highly anticipated series starts streaming January 15 on Disney Plus.
