It's been rumored for months now that X-Men star Evan Peters will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe via WandaVision and while it's unclear what role he could potentially play in the spinoff series, fans are well aware of his Marvel background having played Quicksilver in the now-defunct Foxverse.
The show, led by Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany is said to be our first true introduction to the Marvel Multiverse thanks to the Scarlet Witch's reality-warping powers. Now, with Wanda messing up with the multiverse, would it be possible that she could be bringing in a different Pietro from a different timeline and reality?
A leaked set photo from the upcoming Disney+ show may have confirmed that Evans will indeed be part of the series. The said image was taken from a farm and sees Paul Bettany's Vision and another actor which totally resembles Evan. Twitter user @WANDALORIANO later confirmed that it's indeed the actor and claims that he will be reprising his Quicksilver role. Check it out here.
If Evan ends up becoming the MCU's Quicksilver moving forward, that would totally suck for Olsen's former on-screen sibling Aaron Taylor-Johnson who played the mutant speedster in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I gotta be honest though, Aaron didn't really bring that much to the table and Peters' performance in the X-Men series is far superior. In fact, I can confidently say that it was the redeeming quality of the franchise's last three films where he was a part of.
WandaVision hits Disney+ on January 15, 2021.
