Peters played Marvel's mutant speedster and the son of Magneto in X-Men : Days of Future Past, X-Men : Apocalypse, and the final film in the main series, X-Men : Dark Phoenix. The initial casting of Evan Peters as Quicksilver came at an interesting time, as X-Men : Days of Future Past was in development right when Marvel was working on the sequel to The Avengers.
Since Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were two of a few characters whose rights were shared by Marvel and Fox, it was possible for each studio to have their own version of Pietro Maxim off. Time travel and alternate realities being added as new concepts for the MCU to play with has fueled speculation that Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver could make a comeback, but it's possible that the X-Men version will be utilized in his place.
Marvel hinted at the existence of alternate realities when Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) mentioned the number of possible outcomes of the battle with Thanos (Josh Brain) in Avengers: Infinity War. Based on its title, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will presumably go there again by creating a story that involves the Sorcerer Supreme and Scarlet Witch exploring other dimensions.
Due to the deep connection between the Phase 4 MCU movies and Disney+ shows, WandaVision is expected to set up Scarlet Witch's Doctor Strange 2 role. Parallel universes could be what was shown in footage for WandaVision, which contained glimpses of several versions of Scarlet Witch and Vision (Paul Bethany).
A meeting between Wanda and Peter would draw parallels to what the Arrow verse did with “Crisis on Infinite Earths” when it allowed its version of the Flash (Grant Austin) to meet the DCE's Scarlet Speedster, played by Ezra Miller. It became one of the most talked-about moments that ever occurred in the Arrow verse, and a scene in WandaVision with Fox's Quicksilver would have a similar reaction.
This scenario with Peters isn't too different from what some are thinking could happen with Sam Rail's Spider-Man trilogy in Doctor Strange 2. While Hugh Jackman's Wolverine would be high on everyone's radar and would make for an excellent cameo in a future Marvel project, Evan Peters' Quicksilver is perhaps an even better choice.
Marvel's treatment of Quicksilver hasn't been well-received, considering that he was killed off in his first movie (despite being a major Avengers character). It was in 2019, shortly after Fox was acquired by Disney when Kevin Face assured fans that the X-Men would become part of the MCU.
A lot of questions and all the details remain up the air, including whether original or new X-Men should make the leap to the MCU, and there is a long list of under and never used X-Men villains and other characters that could easily be slipped into the mix. While a full-scale entry of X-Men is at least as far off as Phase 5, individual characters could find their way into the MCU much sooner via a number of possible scenarios.
That means the X-Men could enter via this porthole, which has an obvious potential tie-in to the upcoming Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. As reported in The Independent, a Twitter leak claims both the X-Men and Fantastic Four will enter the MCU via their Earth-1610 versions.
That detail can easily be re-retconned back to the original to introduce Magneto as Wanda's father in WandaVision. The Eternal, which is slated for release in 2021, will bring the story of a new group of super powered beings to the MCU.
This produced three sets of beings, the Eternal (superior and good), the Deviants (powerful and bad), and humans. Some folks claim that Marvel will introduce Angelica Jones, aka Fire star, into the MCU, possibly via Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
She would make an interesting addition to the MCU, with the ability to manipulate microwaves as well as produce them, which lets her fly, among other things. There are all sorts of rumors that Deadpool will appear in a minor role in not one but two upcoming MCU movies, Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
With the release date of Deadpool 3 left up in the air, it would be a good way to give fans at least a taste of the uber-popular character in the meantime. Rumor has it that a scene in The Eternal, or possibly a montage, will show Atlantis sinking into the sea, which reinforces the subtle Enamor Easter Egg in Avengers: Endgame, and hopefully sets up a future appearance in the flesh.
Tiger said Disney is “looking forward to expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe to include X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool.” Of course, we won't be seeing these exciting heroes in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame movie, but Disney is poised to press on into a new phase after the film.
Face is notorious for never giving a straight answer about upcoming films, in order to preserve the big surprises for when they’re released. The multiverse will really bust open the MCU’s storytelling possibilities, given that there will be infinite parallel realities where everything’s a little different.
The interviewer asked, “Is there any reason to believe would not be integrated with the Avengers and these characters as well at some point?” and Face teased, “No. No reason to believe that.” The producer has already said that Marvel has envisaged a very different roster for Avengers 5, so there’s a chance it includes some mutants.
The MCU has been known to take the premises and basic structures of beloved storylines from the comic books, like “Civil War,” and fitting them into its framework. Some fans are theorizing (or hoping) that the X-Men will be integrated into the MCU with an adaptation of “House of M,” one of Marvel’s most famous recent storylines.
It sees Scarlet Witch having a mental breakdown and trying to change the fabric of reality to bring back her deceased children. In addition to writing for Screen Rant and Comic Book Resources, covering everything from Scorsese to Spider-Man, Ben directs independent films and does stand-up comedy.
Posted on September 25, 2019, by Sean Potato Now that the X-Men are coming to Marvel and Disney for the first time, the MCU will reboot the entire mutant franchise.
While this is a sad moment for people who loved the X-Men movies throughout the years, it might be time for a change after two decades, and Marvel seems the best fit for relaunching it to possibly greater heights. However, the problem is that Quicksilver also existed in the MCU, and he died in Avengers: Age of Patron.
There have been time travel and possible alternate worlds in Avengers: Endgame. This is a mutant that comes from one of many alternate futures in the X-Men world, and while he could show up based on Cable appearing in Deadpool 2, don't expect those movies to play into the Acumen.
Born was a mutant with a miniature star living in his head that allowed him to control electromagnetism and a healing factor. There were plans to bring him in when the sequel came, but that movie will never happen with the MCU taking over the X-Men franchise.
Deadpool 2 mocked X-Force, giving fans a great Cable and Domino but making the rest of the team a joke. One member of that team was Shatter star, and that Fox film was probably the only movie that the character will ever appear in.
However, the problem with bringing in Legion is that the character of David Haller was already shown on FX through three seasons. That was a critically acclaimed and well-received series, and there is little chance the MCU wants to try to match up with that show.
