Major MCU casting announcements always create a buzz but one of the most shocking was the recent report that Evan Peters would be featuring in the Disney+ series WandaVision.
While fans normally wouldn’t be surprised that an actor of his caliber has made it into Kevin Feige’s plans, the fact that Evan Peters played Quicksilver in Fox’s X-Men Universe just a few years ago makes this announcement quite intriguing.
Unlike Peter Dinklage who portrayed Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days of Future Past before becoming Eitri in Infinity War, Peters was one of the standouts from the current run of X-Men films and his performance was generally lauded over that of Aaron Taylor Johnson’s in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Could Peters’ casting be a return to his X-Men character, tying both universes together? Possibly, but at this point, who knows which direction Marvel will go with the multiverse moving forward.
But if Feige and company are looking to steal some stars from the X-Men world, there are a few others who deserve the nod that Peters is getting, even if they're still synonymous with Marvel's mutants.
