A WandaVision audition tape may just be teasing Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s long-awaited return as Quicksilver.
Much was said about Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s stint as Quicksilver in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron when the character was killed after just being introduced in that very film. Quicksilver’s death prompted Wanda Maximoff to join the Avengers and attempt to hone in her abilities. While some praised Quicksilver’s death as a necessary inclusion to make the Avengers films have more stakes, some Aaron Taylor-Johnson fans were disappointed that he only had one MCU appearance before meeting his demise.
According to a WandaVision audition tape found by scooper Daniel Richtman, Wanda might just be seeing the return of her brother Quicksilver. The audition video for WandaVision features a young kid who is talking about Halloween, a major setting that will dominate WandaVision. The young kid is most likely auditioning to be one of Wanda and Vision’s twins — Wiccan and Speed. In the video, the young child mentions that he has an “uncle”.
This uncle in question obviously alludes to Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver. Audition tape prompts often throw in meaningless fluff for actors to merely get the gist of the feeling they’re evoking without giving them explicit information, but the inclusion of Halloween and this “uncle” may just point to something larger than we expected appearing in WandaVision. For what it’s worth, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s return as Quicksilver would be welcome to the MCU and help streamline Fox’s Marvel character. Evan Peter’s Quicksilver famously made his debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past, a year before Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s did in the MCU due to a weird middle-ground that allowed both renditions of the character to be brought to separate on-screen universes.
What are your thoughts on Aaron Taylor-Johnson potentially returning to role of Quicksilver in WandaVision? Let us knwo in the comments!
WandaVision centers on Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch after the events of Avengers: Endgame and is believed to follow the character after she creates an idyllic world in which Paul Bettany’s Vision is still alive. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also confirmed WandaVision will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will see Elizabeth Olsen reprise her role as Scarlet Witch. The first half of the series is set to take cues from multiple sitcoms over the decades, while the second half is said to be a Marvel blockbuster.
WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn as a nosy neighbor.
WandaVision is scheduled to premiere on Disney Plus sometime in 2020. Stay tuned for the latest news on Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Quicksilver, and the Marvel series.
