Episode 8 of ‘WandaVision’ offered a journey into Wanda’s past and even a part of her childhood and trauma was revealed, but at no point in this installment of the Disney + series did Aaron Taylor-Johnson appear even though it was likely.
WandaVision gives us more and more reasons to be excited. Episode 8 of the Disney + series (know the subscription plans to the service in this link) not only introduced the white version of Vision (Paul Bettany), who has a peculiar origin and performance in the comics as White Vision, but also offered a walk through the past of Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) to better understand her powers and reasons that have led her to the point that we know in the series, however, Despite reliving several traumatic events, we never saw Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Pietro Maximoff.
Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) led Wanda to make this peculiar journey in retrospect to understand the origin of her power, since the first wanted to investigate the reason why the protagonist has such a skill as to control everything within the Hex , something that for her was a myth, but that she ended up calling Chaotic Magic. As well, We saw the moment when Wanda’s parents were killed in the detonation of a bomb made by Stark Industries and even a child version of Pietro.
Afterwards we witnessed Wanda’s volunteer experience in the ranks of Hydra, so she interacted with the Mind Stone and the silhouette of the Scarlet Witch appeared in front of her eyes, detonating something inside her that might otherwise have happened. lost according to Agatha. Right there we expected to see Aaron Taylor-Johnson again under Pietro’s skin or a reference to the scene of his death in Avengers: Age of Ultron, since it defined much of what Wanda is now, however, the actor did not appear.
‘WandaVision’: The explanation of what happens in episode 8 of the Disney + series
“Necromancy was not possible because the corpse of your real brother is on another continent. Not to mention, it’s full of holes ”, Agatha mentions about the whereabouts of Pietro’s body after his death at the hands of Ultron (James Spader) after saving Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and a child from several gunshot wounds, thus clarifying the doubt of what had happened to the corpse, but is all that is mentioned about it; They didn’t even use an Aaron Taylor-Johnson recycle with Elizabeth Olsen, so it was really weird.
One of the reasons behind this is that Taylor-Johnson was unwilling or unable to make a cameo in WandaVision, although he had been open to the possibility of returning as Quicksilver if the circumstances were right. On the other hand, it is also possible that the scriptwriters did not find the right space for Pietro to really feel part of Wanda’s memories. Finally, it is likely that in the editing room they cut Aaron’s part because he interrupted the rhythm of the episode.
There are certainly many variables that could explain the lack of a cameo from the original Quicksilver from MCU, but It would have been a great addition to have him back, even for a few seconds.
