Why was Pietro in WandaVision different?
WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer has revealed why Evan Peters was cast as Wanda’s brother, Pietro, in the Marvel–Disney+ series. Jac Schaeffer said in a new interview that Peters, who portrayed Pietro/Quicksilver in the X-Men and Avengers franchises, made casting sense due to his recognisability.
Why did Marvel recast Quicksilver?
The actor has been busy with other projects, including Tenet, The King’s Man, and Bullet Train, so it’s possible that his schedule simply didn’t allow for him to return, or that he didn’t wish to, if indeed there were ever any plans for him to do so.
What happened to the original Pietro?
This is not the Pietro Maximoff anyone—including Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) herself—expected to see. Our Pietro, complete with his thick Eastern-European accent, was killed by Ultron in Sokovia during Avengers: Age of Ultron. The audience knows this.
Why didn’t they use the same actor for Pietro?
Evan Peters has played Quicksilver/Peter Maximoff (close enough to Pietro, right?) in the X-Men franchise since Days of Future Past in 2014. One of the most important reasons for having different actors play the same character is due to studio interference.
Has Wanda slept with Pietro?
In Ultimates 3 #1, Wanda is revealed to be involved in an incestuous romantic relationship with her brother, Pietro.
Why are there 2 Quicksilvers?
The problem stemmed from Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch being both X-Men characters and Avengers in the comic books. (They started as X-Men villains and then reformed and joined the Avengers.) So the MCU and 20th Century Fox split them up between the two companies.
