WandaVision is among the long list of anticipated MCU series that are set to debut on Disney+. It remains to be seen how the show will tie into the larger MCU, but a few tidbits of information may have teased on how it all comes together. A recent interview from Kat Dennings, who will reprise her role as Darcy from the Thor movies, may have shed some light on what her role will be in the series, potentially hinting that the character has connections with S.W.O.R.D. It has also been teased that scenes revolving Teyonnah Paris' Monica Rambeau will include some action-packed driving stunts, which proves that the series is more than just a sitcom-based affair.
Additionally, it has already been confirmed that WandaVision will directly tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, plot details of the series are still being kept under wraps. A new report may have added both intrigue and anticipation for the MCU's weirdest show yet.
In an exclusive report from Murphy's Multiverse, insider Charles Murphy revealed that Evan Peters (X-Men Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix) has signed on for a "key role" in WandaVision. Murphy shared that Peters "landed the role late last year" and he "filmed his scenes shortly after." However, details of his role are still being kept under wraps.
WHAT THIS MEANS
It's worth mentioning that Evan Peters played the role of Pietro Maximoff in Fox's X-Men universe from X-Men: Days of Future Past up until last year's Dark Phoenix. While the idea of Peters playing Quicksilver again is an enticing one, it's unlikely that he will reprise the same role for the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it will confuse many fans (unless the MCU is ready to acknowledge Fox's X-Men universe).
Murphy pointed out that Peters has the acting chops of portraying "terrifying villains" from American Horror Story, so this could mean that the actor could very well play the big bad who is pulling the strings against Wanda and Vision. There is a high possibility that this theory is true given that there is no word yet on who the real villain of the Disney+ series is.
Given the show's direct ties to Doctor Strange 2, Peters could portray the movie's villain, Nightmare, to further establish the connections of the Disney+ series and the MCU films. Whatever the case, adding Peters should serve as a strong addition to the already stacked cast of WandaVision while also raising more questions than answers.
