WandaVision’s Quicksilver references her death in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the gag becomes an insult to Hawkeye in the process.
The last episode of WandaVision see Quicksilver reference his death in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the moment is an insult to Hawkeye. The plot of WandaVision took a surprising turn recently when Pietro Maximoff appeared on the front doorstep of Wanda Maximoff and Vision. But it wasn’t Aaron Taylor-Johnson reprising his role, with Evan Peters playing Quicksilver in the MCU after doing it on Fox. X Men films.
Despite Quicksilver’s new look in WandaVision, the show has so far functioned as if it was supposed to be the original version of Pietro from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He doesn’t know why he looks any different, but Quicksilver has some knowledge of past MCU events, including his death. Pietro mentions it directly in WandaVision episode 6 and it does it in an amazing way. Quicksilver remembers his last moments of life saying: “I was shot like a fool in the street for no reason.” That line is a clear reference to how Quicksilver died in Avengers: Age of Ultron And ultimately, it proves to be a huge snub to Hawkeye.

WandaVisionQuicksilver is right that he died on the street, and the haunting image of Quicksilver appearing as a corpse reminds Scarlet Witch of that fact later on. But to say that he died for no reason is not true. Quicksilver’s role in Avengers: Age of UltronThe end was to gather the stragglers on the floating debris of Sokovia and escort them to SHIELD transport vehicles. While thinking that they had saved everyone, Pietro finally sees that Hawkeye returned to save a child. Hawkeye and the boy are within minutes of being shot by Ultron, but Quicksilver is quick to push them out of the way. He saved two lives with this act, which gave Quicksilver a heroic end to his brief time in the MCU.
Though Avengers: Age of Ultron It didn’t deliver the most eloquent death for Quicksilver, it still works for the story and meant something to the characters. Most importantly, Pietro sacrificed himself to save Hawkeye, who is possibly the most valuable member of the Avengers. Now that WandaVisionQuicksilver is saying that he died for no reason, that insults Hawkeye’s life and courage, not to mention that of the Sokovian boy. If this was really how the MCU’s Pietro felt about his sacrifice, then it defeats the entire purpose of his death in the first place.
With this comment from Quicksilver, viewers might take his insult from Hawkeye as another sign that he is not who he appears to be. Pietro dances on specific details of his and Wanda’s past and how he got there while asking potentially important questions like how Scarlet Witch is doing or where she kept the rest of Westview’s children. This Quicksilver dropped his accent and even acts differently than the version featured on Avengers: Age of Ultron, and this specific line indicates that Pietro shown here would not make the same sacrifice. Like the final episodes of WandaVision unfold, it will be fascinating to see how Quicksilver influences the remaining story or if Hawkeye shows up considering his friendship with Wanda.
