Evan Peters Was Super Excited To Bring Quicksilver To WandaVision

From the get-go, Evan Peters was game to play Quicksilver in WandaVision. Episode 5 of the Marvel Studios series titled “On A Very Special Episode…” featured a lot of odd moments, but they saved the best one for last when the Fox X-Men character appeared before Scarlet Witch as his brother.

This could be confusing for some considering that the MCU’s Pietro Maximoff was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He and Wanda were introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Unlike his sister, however, Quicksilver didn’t survive the film, dying to save Hawkeye. Since then, he hasn’t been mentioned again until WandaVision episode 3 titled “Now In Color” where Wanda mentioned that she’s a twin after the birth of her sons, Tommy and Billy Maximoff. It was great foreshadowing from Marvel Studios, but their pay-off involved a massive twist when it was Peters’ version as the speedster who appeared before Scarlet Witch in Westview.

WandaVision showrunner Jac Schaeffer may not be able to say what comes next for the character moving forward, but she’s more than happy to talk about the process that led to this creative decision. Speaking with Marvel.com, she reveals that they had the cameo planner early on and Peters was immediately game for it because he’s a fan of Marvel and comic book in general.

“We were rooting for it for so long, and didn’t know if it would be possible. It was complicated to make happen. Evan was always up for it — like, always, always, always. He is a comic book fan, and a Marvel fan. He is always up for the absolute weirdest option. And he’s a pleasure — truly a pleasure to work with.

Everybody was really excited. I think Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] wanted to make sure that there was a reason for it, that it made sense. And I hope that’s what we did.”

How this version of Quicksilver made his way into the MCU is unknown at this point, although this might be part of Marvel Studios’ plans to establish their multiverse. WandaVision will play an important part in that endeavor alongside Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness — two other Phase 4 projects that Scarlet Witch is expected to be involved in. Depending on how they navigate around this situation of a character technically from a different universe now in the MCU, it’s possible that Peters’ Quicksilver is only the first character from the Fox X-Men franchise to make the jump. That doesn’t mean, however, that Marvel Studios will necessarily absorb whatever happened in that separate franchise; it’s just that key players can now travel to other dimensions.

Whatever the case may be, one thing is for certain: the appearance of Peters’ Quicksilver in WandaVision is further driving the hype around the Disney+ project. It’s worth noting that before his arrival, Wanda almost explained to Vision what’s really happening in Westview after he found out that not everything in the town is what it seems to be. This version of Quicksilver may just be a ruse to distract the couple from their burgeoning conflict. In any case, based on Schaeffer’s comments, it sounds like they have a solid plan for bringing him into the MCU.
