In episode 6 of ‘WandaVision’, for a moment Wanda sees Pietro’s body battered by Ultron’s bullets in a stark reminder of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s version, but why did this happen on the Disney + series?
In episode 6 of WandaVision there were not only a lot of easter-egs and references, but there was also a tense moment for Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), who he saw for a moment Pietro (Evan Peters) with his body shot, remembering the way his twin died in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Disney + series (If you are a new subscriber, get several days of the service at no cost) has made it clear that the two versions of Quicksilver are different in many ways, so it’s curious to think about the reason behind the scenes between the Maximoffs.
To recap a bit, on the final stretch of Avengers: Age of Ultron Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) was saving a boy from being pierced by the bullets of an airplane that Ultron (James Spader) was handling and when he is unable to take cover, Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) comes to his aid, who quickly places a car behind Clint Barton to avoid impacts, however, This takes a heavy toll on Quicksilver, who takes multiple damage from the villain’s blasts and eventually falls to the ground lifeless.
The one that Wanda has seen with the bullets in the body to Pietro’s version of WandaVision could be proof to her that her twin on the show is the real one. We know that Evan Peters is the X-Men movie version of the character and even Darcy (Kat Dennings) is aware that he is not the same one he knew. Wanda also has serious doubts about her twin and distrusts him a lot, she even puts him to the test by asking questions from his childhood, but the answers are elusive on the part of Pietro, in addition to having different memories of the Halloween they lived as children.
‘WandaVision’ (Disney +): What happened to the body of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver?
On the other hand, Wanda’s vision of the badly injured Pietro could also be due to his powers being out of control again.. Remember that when Vision (Paul Bettany) appeared with a large hole in his forehead while at home, the protagonist was under a lot of stress after the events that led to the expulsion of Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) from the Hex, so with Quicksilver Something similar would happen, that is, Wanda has been under pressure to discover the truth behind the twin who arrived unexpectedly and that she knows is not the same, so in a moment of weakness she sees reality as it is.
There is also the possibility that someone else is playing with her and that just these brief visions of her dead loved ones are part of the plan to drive her out of her mind. Much has been rumored with the arrival of Mephisto, a powerful being that in the comics has a lot to do with Wanda and her children, but it could also be someone else like Nightmare, who has been mentioned would be the villain of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and it is just a kind of nightmare that Wanda has in those moments, who is confirmed to appear in the sequel of the Supreme Sorcerer.
Of course, let’s not overlook the detail that Pietro told his sister: “It’s not as if your dead husband could die twice,” so clearly has memories of reality and is aware that it is part of the show the Wanda and Westview; something very strange is happening with him, his sister knows it, but for now it has not been revealed more. To wait a little longer to know the truth of all these facts that surround WandaVision.
