WandaVision: Was Evan Peter’s Quicksilver Just An Imposter In The Show?
While there are million other questions we have about the WandaVision show, this one about Evan Peters playing Quicksilver was the one troubling us the most.
Just A Tease by Marvel?
Well, many fans think that casting Evan Peters was just another way to increase the hype around the show.
Even though a Marvel project never needs one, the studio sometimes goes way out of their comfort zone and keep their fans excited.
But dearest fans have had no problem with it and given the studios the satisfaction of satisfying them.
Many fans think this may just be a tease by Marvel, whom the fans have been troubling for some time now to reveal about info behind the whole multiverse theory.
To be frank, Marvel fans, including moi, are relentless!
Just a Boner Joke?
Fans have a way of taking something completely out of context and making a viral meme out of it.
Just like they did with “Little dude is big now” and so many more like that. Marvel has always been a class apart, particularly when you look at Vision and his philosophies.
I mean, the greatest weapon created on Earth had a twin to fight, but he actually solved their problem with Philosophy. We also see Vision say some deep words in the show.
Then Marvel went and made a Bohner, aka Boner joke out of Evan Peters’ character.
Is it more than that?
While there may or may not be more to this whole Evan Peters casting, the show’s writer says it definitely had a deeper meaning.
According to the writer, the studios hired a grief counselor to feel or get the feelings that run through Wanda Maximoff.
According to the counselor, sometimes grief can make the person suffering from it lose the memories of the one that perished.
The writer said that Wanda was in so much pain that they included this character to show that her grief was so intense her mental picture of her brother started to chip off little by little.
” The anxiety of not remembering the faces of your loved ones, misremembering, or actively misremembering things as a self-preservation tactic—all of that became fascinating to us. We thought that by casting Evan [Peters] in the role, it would not only have that effect on Wanda, but it would have this meta layer for the audience, as well”.
