‘WandaVision’ Adds ‘X-Men’ Alum Evan Peters In a Top Secret Role — So When Will It Finally Premiere?
WandaVision just added an X-Men alum to its roster. The series, which explores Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch’s, life following the events of Avengers: Endgame, has cast Evan Peters for a top-secret role. Here’s a look at everything we know about Evans joining the cast plus when the series will finally appear on Disney+.
‘WandaVision’ adds Peters in a secret role
Peters is perhaps best known for playing various characters in Ryan Murphy’s hit show, American Horror Story. But the actor also played the role of Quicksilver in the last few X-Men films. This includes an appearance in Dark Phoenix.
According to Screen Rant, Evans was cast to play a secret role in WandaVision, details of which have not been released. We do not know if the series will introduce Evans as Quicksilver or if he will play an entirely different character, but he definitely adds some more star power to the series.
Another tidbit is that Quicksilver was in Avengers: Age of Ultron and was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Wanda’s brother died at the end of the movie, and fans have since speculated that he might return to the show.
WandaVision is expected to feature various realities created by Scarlet Witch, so it is certainly possible that her brother is included in one of these alternate storylines. Exactly how Evans fits into the show, however, remains unclear.
Kat Dennings teases stunt scene she was not prepared for
In addition to the exciting casting news, WandaVision star Kat Dennings recently teased that she filmed an insane stunt for the upcoming series.
According to Comic Book, the actress, who is returning to play the part of Darcy Lewis, revealed that she had no idea she was doing a stunt scene until filming started. She also stated that the scene in question had her character running through the woods, something that was not included in the trailer.
“There was a scene where I’m running through a field and I get to the night shoot and there’s no stunt on the call sheet,” she said.
The last time we saw Dennings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was back in Thor: The Dark World. She has been missing in action since 2013, and many fans were pleased by the news that she will appear in WandaVision.
When will the new Marvel shows hit Disney+?
Marvel has delayed many of its upcoming projects due to the coronavirus pandemic. This includes pushing back all of the movies in Phase 4 of the MCU.
The studio’s television shows are a different story. So far, Marvel has not announced any delays to the shows that will stream on Disney+, starting with Falcon and the Winter Soldier this August.
That said, filming for the series was put on hold because of the current crisis. If production is not able to start back up soon, there is a strong possibility that all of Marvel’s TV shows will be delayed.
Barring any future postponements, WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney+ in December.
Fan theory sheds light on ‘WandaVision’ storyline
While we wait for more developments, a new fan theory might shed some light on the main storyline in WandaVision.
In the first trailer for the series, fans watched Wanda living out an alternate reality with Vision (Paul Bettany) in the form of several different sitcoms. These sitcoms spanned several decades, from the 1960s all the way up to the 1990s.
As the theory goes, each decade will represent a traumatic experience in Wanda’s story, starting with the death of her parents in the 1960s. The 1970s sitcom would then explore her brother’s death, followed by her relationship with Vision and his death in Endgame.
We cannot confirm that the theory is correct, but it certainly makes a compelling case. Either way, we cannot wait to see what Marvel has in store for the Scarlet Witch when WandaVision finally hits Disney+ later this year.
