WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer has spoken about the big twist at the end of last week’s episode of the Disney+ Marvel show. Fans were extremely surprised when Wanda opened her door to see her brother Pietro standing there–especially as was played by Evan Peters, the actor who portrayed the character in the X-Men movies rather than the MCU.
Fans have speculated that Peters’ appearance is the start of the integration of the X-Men into the MCU, as Pietro (aka Quicksilver) was previously played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the Marvel Universe. And while this might be the case, Schaeffer explains that the twist started simply with the idea of throwing something truly unexpected into an already very strange show.
“We loved the idea of [bringing him back],” Schaeffer told Marvel.com. “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.”
