Evan Peters, renowned for his portrayal of Quicksilver in the former Fox X-Men films, might be gearing up for a return in his intriguing WandaVision character.

When Peters made his appearance in WandaVision, fans were elated by the revelation. Initially assumed to be an alternate version of Wanda’s brother, it turned out he was Ralph Bohner, a seemingly ordinary individual under Agatha’s manipulation. Since then, the character’s fate has remained in limbo.

In the upcoming WandaVision spin-off series, “Agatha: Coven of Chaos,” set photos have unveiled tantalizing details. Notably, the focus will shift back to Westview itself at some juncture in the narrative.

A clear indication of this shift is the emergence of a new shopping mall in town, with both Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha and Joe Locke’s enigmatic character (likely Wiccan) spotted on the set.

Adding to the intrigue, previous casting announcements confirmed the return of eight Westview citizens from the original WandaVision series. Among them are David Payton, David Lengel, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Brian Brightman, Kate Forbes, Emma Caulfield, and Debra Jo Rupp. With these familiar faces returning, it’s conceivable that Marvel Studios will provide updates on Ralph Bohner’s storyline.

Evan Peters’ Willingness To Rejoin The Marvel Franchise

During a recent interview, Evan Peters expressed his openness to rejoin the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Peters candidly stated that he would be interested in participating in another Marvel project. After engaging in more intense roles, he aims to step away from darker characters for a while, seeking roles that are more “in the light”:

“I’d be in another Marvel movie. Yeah, I think for me, Dahmer was really the last sort of dark character that I’m going to play for an extended period of time. So it was sort of a send-off to that time of working hard on things like that, and now I’m going to try to pivot. Anything in the light, I’m just trying to stay out of the darkness for a while.”

Meanwhile, numerous rumors are circulating regarding Evan Peters’ potential return as Bohner in Agatha. However, fans will have to await the series’ release to discover if any of these speculations hold true.

Marvel Studios’ Opportunity For Redemption

Evan Peters’ portrayal as Ralph Bohner in WandaVision was met with mixed reactions, leaving some fans dissatisfied. This presents Marvel Studios with a chance to rectify the situation, similar to how they corrected the Mandarin twist from Iron Man 3 in “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”

Many fans speculate that Agatha’s seemingly innocuous rabbit, Señor Scratchy, could hint at a future twist involving her son, Nicholas Scratch. Could Ralph Bohner actually be a disguised Nicholas Scratch?

While it’s improbable that Marvel Studios will follow fans’ initial conjectures of resurrecting Bohner as Quicksilver, the desire for the beloved speedster’s return remains strong. Given Wanda’s ongoing struggles, having Quicksilver back could be a potential game-changer for her character.
