We all were shocked when MCU replaced our original Quicksilver ‘Pietro’ Aaron Taylor Johnson with Evan Peters in WandaVision. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who had already played the MCU character in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fans were speculating if MCU is planning to extend the multiverse theory of Wanda’s brother. Also, Peters made he make a big appearance as the character with a scene-stealing turn in X-Men: Days of Future Past, sometimes recently returning in X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool 2, and Dark Phoenix.
Who is Better ‘Pietro?’

Apparently, nothing has been official from MCU that Evan Peters will stay next season of WandaVision or not. But what we can do is analyze if Evan is better than Aaron or not. Peters’s role has been more impactful on the minds of fans as opposed to Aaron’s which was quite muted in ‘Age of Ultron.’ His take on the character was applauded for being clever, charming, lively, and imaginative, and he was broadly considered to be the predominant of both versions.
Although to keep things simple, MCU should consider Aaron back on the show. Currently, there is no news on Season 2 of WandaVision, so the cast is also behind the curtain. But if there is one, our original ‘Pietro’ should be back. From the womb, Wanda and Pietro had an awfully solid, intimate, and about unbreakable bond that only got to be more grounded through a long time. A relationship fans can connect with. So, I feel Aaron would be better for playing Wanda’s brother.
Will Peters Be Replaced?
Marvel Studios executive producer Kevin Feige already talked almost the casting choice. He uncovered his fervour to bring Evan Peters over from the X-Men establishment.
He said, “My top choice part of the process is working with the exceptions starting when we’re figuring out what something might be and at the conclusion when we’re trying different things and putting it out into the world. So there were all sorts of dialogues, but I believe we finished up going with what you saw moderately early on within the improvement preparation. It’s fair another way that certain individuals were messing around with Wanda.”
With this statement we can guess, he loved Evan being our new Quicksilver in the Avengers team, so I guess he might not be replaced. But this is an open-end conclusion.
