As Marvel is on a spree to end the year with surprises, let us add to their scheme by introducing the possibility of Quicksilver (X-men) debuting in MCU with ‘WandaVision’.
On 11th December 2020, Marvel fans began freaking out as they saw Marvel dropping trailers and updates for its new projects one by one. The Kevin Feige led studio surprised the fans by releasing exclusive clips of several upcoming Disney+ shows. However, the surprise for the fans did not end there, as ‘WandaVision’, the first one to debut on Disney+, might surprise you further by introducing X-Men in MCU through Quicksilver.

‘WandaVision’ to introduce X-men in MCU through Quicksilver
The possibilities in MCU are endless, and thus the theories and rumours surrounding MCU never end. With Marvel extending its cinematic universe to the small screen through Disney+, the probabilities of Marvel bringing its other superhero franchises like ‘X-men’, ‘Fantastic 4‘, etcetera into MCU have increased several folds.
Some of the latest rumours are suggesting that Marvel might infuse X-men into MCU by introducing Quicksilver in ‘WandaVision’.
‘WandaVision’, the miniseries created by Jac Schaeffer, was supposed to release in the latter half of 2020. But due to the pandemic-restriction delaying the production, the series is now slated to premiere on January 15, 2021. The series will star Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in the respective key roles of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision.
While there are rumours of Quicksilver appearing in ‘WandaVision’, there’s no confirmation on whether Aaron Taylor-Johanson’s version of Quicksilver will return, or Evan Peters’ version of Quicksilver from X-men will join the MCU.
Aaron Taylor’s Quicksilver to return to MCU?
MCU had its own Quicksilver in the form of Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor), the twin brother of Wanda. Sadly, while Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) got to live longer, become the strongest MCU hero, got to face Thanos and rip-off his armour, and get her own TV show, Quicksilver was killed in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ while trying to save Hawkeye. Wanda still mourns her brother’s death.
As hinted in the sneak peeks and also through various leaks, ‘WandaVision’ will see Wanda mourning Vision’s death post ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. While there is no confirmation on the timeline of the show, the mental state of Wanda in the trailers reveals a lot.
Theories suggest that Wanda will create an alternate reality of her own, which will eventually collide with her true reality. In that reality, Wanda can create the perfect life she never got to live, which can also include bringing Quicksilver back to life.
Another hint of Aaron Taylor’s Quicksilver returning to MCU was dropped by Funko PopKeep. A tweet by PopKeep this October revealed the latest collectable versions of Wanda and Vision. Following that, an Instagram account named SerlentPops, known for its information regarding Funko Pop, leaked a surprising Funko Pop pack cover.
In that image, we can see Aaron Taylor’s Quicksilver alongside Vision. If the leak is true, then we can almost be assured that Aaron Taylor’s Quicksilver will return to MCU.
Quicksilver to bring X-men into MCU?
While there are leaks and rumours of Aaron Taylor’s Quicksilver returning to MCU in ‘WandaVision’, there are also reports of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver running into the story, eventually introducing X-men into MCU.
A leaked casting report during early 2020 also suggested Marvel casting Evan Peters for a key role in ‘WandaVision’. If the leaks are true, then we might see the popular Evan Peters’ version of Quicksilver joining the MCU. This can be a better choice, as rather than randomly visiting Wanda’s traumatic memory, it can actually open many doors of the multiverse for the future of MCU.
We aren’t sure if Quicksilver will make an appearance in ‘WandaVision’, and if it’ll be the X-men version of Quicksilver. But we are sure that Marvel will eventually infuse X-men into MCU.
