Will everything in Marvel’s Phase 4 tie back into WandaVision? Maybe not, but it does seem like a lot of the most interesting things will be tying into the series in one way or another. We now have a look at another link to the questions brought up in the new Disney+ series and what lies ahead for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evan Peters is reportedly set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
This raises a lot of interesting Evan Peters questions. The news comes from insider Mikey Sutton at Geekosity. Marvel fans know that Peters played Quicksilver in the recent X-Men films. We last saw him play the part in 2019’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In the recent past, the X-Men and Marvel superheroes have been treated separately, but we’re expecting the worlds to join together in Phase 4 because they are now both owned by the same studios. Fans were waiting for Evan Peters to be revealed as Quicksilver in WandaVision to tie everything neatly together in an episode once and for all.
This seemed entirely possible since WandaVision has been a show with so many puzzle pieces anyway. Why not lock it all together right here? But then during the show, Evan Peters was revealed to be Ralph Bohner, a small-time actor and the husband of Agatha Harkness. Understandably, fans felt tricked. It was a letdown.
But is that the end for Evan Peters? And what does it mean if he’s going to be in Doctor Strange 2?
So, earlier on in WandaVision, Jimmy Woo was looking for someone named Ralph Bohner in witness protection. It is now the fan theory that they are one in the same. That Ralph Bohner is a name given to Evan Peters’ character as he is in witness protection. The story for Scarlet Witch will continue on from WandaVision into Spider-Man: No Way Home and then Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In Doctor Strange 2, she will meet up with Evan Peters, who will be revealed to be Quicksilver, and all the puzzle pieces for this character will fall into place.
This makes more sense with other news we’ve heard about Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Monica Rambeau is a prominent member of S.W.O.R.D. This group is another way the storytellers are bringing X-Men and the current Marvel Cinematic Universe together. She was also a major character for WandaVision. She, too, is set to appear in Doctor Strange 2. This sounds like more pieces falling into place to tie WandaVision into the movies. And with Evan Peters showing up as well, it will also tie the X-Men in.
Does that mean Doctor Strange 2 will be our first set up for tying the mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? It’s been theorized by many that may be the case. Perhaps the Multiverse will be the way they’re brought in. Since Disney acquired Fox in 2019, fans have had time to speculate on many other ways this could happen, including through new movie announcements. What does seem clear so far from WandaVision is that they’re setting the stage.
