WandaVision: Truth About Pietro Maximoff
There are a lot of questions going around about Pietro Maximoff, and it looks like we won’t be getting a clear answer anytime soon.
As usual, Marvel is well aware of what it is doing and is doing everything in its power to keep the audience entertained. But does that also include making us go crazy?
Pietro Maximoff, the twin brother of Wanda Maximoff, made his appearance in WandaVision in the latest 5th episode. We, the audience, knew it was Pietro because we have seen him as Quicksilver in the X-Men franchise.
But, how did Wanda know about him? If Multiverse theory is in play, shouldn’t Wanda be as confused as Vision as to who is at her door?
But, wait, there is another theory. See, now Vision sees someone standing at the door and clearly doesn’t recognize him. Thus, making the multiverse rule apply to him in WandaVision.
But, Wanda could recognize. Is it because whoever the manipulator is making Wanda see Pietro as Aaron Taylor Johnson’s MCU’s Quicksilver?
Because we know by now that there is someone besides Wanda who is manipulating inside the bubble, now comes Darcy’s dialogue, ‘She recast Pietro?’
Everyone knows who Pietro is and how he looks like. So, it is natural for Darcy to hear Pietro’s name and see it’s someone else and think it’s just a replacement. Now, this goes well with the sitcom pattern WandaVision is following.
Sitcoms are known to replace their lead or any character and act like it never happened. So, this is a normal sitcom characteristic.
But we have too many questions, and when asked to the head writer, Jac Schaeffer, he was in the same state when they decided to go with this idea.
Most Logical and Organic Answer
Schaeffer revealed that they were so confused about giving the most logical and organic reason to bring back Pietro.
“And then we were like, how in the world are we going to make this make logical sense? Like, how do we justify this? Because that’s the thing, you can hatch a million great ideas, but to make them land, to make them be grounded, to make them feel organic to the larger story.”
After explaining how excited Evan Peters was to work in this from the beginning and how they have made this come to play, Schaeffer gave out a small clue about Pietro’s entry.
“Everybody was excited. I think Kevin Feige wanted to make sure that it made sense that there was a reason for it. And I hope that’s what we did.”
So, the only thing we got for you today is that it will make sense soon. We just have to wait till the last episode to put every puzzle together.
