UPDATE: Our exclusive report has been confirmed by Episode 5 of WandaVision, where X-Men star Evan Peters made his debut as Quicksilver.
We’ve received confirmation, that a fan-favorite X-Men character will be debuting in the MCU, sooner than people realize. This will mark the first time an X-Men has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since buying the rights from 20th Century Fox.
This news will ruin a surprise Marvel has had up their sleeve, so we want to offer you a fair SPOILER WARNING before you keep reading. Also want to offer a word of advice that we expect this surprise leak to not hold much longer, with other outlets soon to announce it.
First X-Men To Debut
Fans of Marvel’s first series on Disney+ are in for a massive surprise. While WandaVision has excited most die-hard fans, casual Marvel fans have been more indifferent to the show’s sitcom settings.
The show is a slow-burn mystery for Marvel fans to uncover why Wanda, Vision, and her castmates are stuck in the strange format. But it’s clear through the first few episodes, that cracks are being established. Things are not all fine and dandy in this universe.
That’s right folks, Quicksilver is coming back into the MCU via WandaVision. But we’re not talking about the Quicksilver played by Aaron Taylor Johnson. No, this surprise is even more epic as WandaVision will be bringing in X-Men’s Evan Peters as Quicksilver.
Now the news of Peters appearing in WandaVision was first reported by our friends at Murphy’s Multiverse back many months ago. While many have speculated that he’d be playing Nicholas Scratch or even possibly Mephisto, we can exclusively confirm that he’ll be reprising his role as Quicksilver.
We couldn’t get any more specifics yet as to how or why his Quicksilver becomes involved. But knowing Peters will be showing up as Quicksilver, is a big deal. Bringing in his Quicksilver would officially bring in the first X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Peters’ Quicksilver made his debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. For many, his “Time in a Bottle” slow-mo scene, was the best part of the entire movie, surpassing anything Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver was given to do Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
