wandavision episode 5 quicksilver recast evan peters

Elisabeth Olsen and Evan Peters as "The Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff" and "Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff," respectively.

Fans have been clamoring for The X-Men to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since Disney was in talks to purchase Twentieth Century Fox. It seems they may finally have their wish courtesy of WandaVision's fifth episode! Wanda Maximoff, AKA The Scarlet Witch, used her growing reality warping powers to resurrect her twin brother, the speedster, Pietro Maximoff, AKA Quicksilver.

It seems they may finally have their wish courtesy of WandaVision’s fifth episode! Wanda Maximoff, AKA The Scarlet Witch, used her growing reality warping powers to resurrect–and recast–her twin brother, the speedster, Pietro Maximoff, AKA Quicksilver.

However, the version of Quicksilver, resurrected is in actuality the one from Twentieth Century Fox’s X-Men played by Evan Peters, not the one originally played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and killed in “Avengers: Age of Ultron!” This news is big as it marks the first character from Fox to appear in the MCU!

This development is huge as it ties the two realities of the MCU and Twentieth Century Fox’s together! It has long been suspected that Wanda may actually have a lot to do with the origins of mutants in the MCU. Her reality warping powers in the comics nearly wiped out the mutant population; however, as a plot twist, in the MCU she may very well be the cause of their creation.

As you may already know from watching WandaVision, Wanda is having a nervous breakdown, and with her powers has quarantined and taken a New Jersey hostage, telepathically controlling them to do her bidding. She has even resurrected her “synethezoid” lover, Vision, and created twin sons, William and Thomas–who have powers of their own, seemingly.

WandaVision now ties Fox’s X-Men into the MCU with the appearance of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver and connects to the larger universe with the appearance of Monica Rambeau/Photon to Captain Marvel. We cannot wait to see what develops next in this series, but we do know in the long run, Wanda will appear in “Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness.” Since she has already seemingly reached into the multiverse and plucked a new Quicksilver the possibilities and stories involving the MCU have increased exponentially!
