WandaVision showrunner Jac Schaeffer says revealing Fietro as the common Westview citizen Ralph was always the plan, showing Agatha’s ruthlessness.

Fake Pietro was never intended to be the MCU’s Quicksilver, but rather a demonstration of Agatha’s evil.

WandaVision showrunner and lead writer Jac Schaeffer spoke with Screen Rant on how the definitive revelation of the fake Pietro, or Fietro, was always part of the plan. While many fans theorized that Evan Peters’ arrival on the show meant Fox’s universe of X-Men characters would cross over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Schaeffer said that was never close to what the creative team intended.

“It was always the intention that Evan was fake Pietro,” Schaeffer said. “That he was not, in fact, the MCU Quicksilver. Then beyond that, I can’t remember when those decisions were made. It was very early tied to his story that he was Agatha’s puppet. He was a young man who lived nearby. ; she had taken over his house and was holding him hostage. We really loved it. She was serving Agatha’s character because we loved the idea that every time she complained about her husband, she was actually speaking out loud about him. Man she was being held hostage. It’s so bad; it’s so bad. “

As Schaeffer makes clear, Peters doesn’t play the real Quicksilver. After all, Ultron killed him and having more resurrections would have made Vision’s return cheaper. Instead, he was another hapless Westview resident who was put under a spell by a witch. But instead of Wanda, Agatha was the one who transformed Ralph. Not only did she do it on purpose, but it also means that every time Agatha as Agnes complains about her absent husband Ralph, she’s actually making fun of the man who is forced to impersonate Quicksilver in order to mess with Wanda more.

The existence of mutants in the MCU was not the only WandaVision fan theory that was never fulfilled, and that was never their intention Many thought that Mephisto and Magneto would appear, and this last theory arose from the arrival of Peters Quicksilver. But Schaeffer similarly said that those cameos were never part of the plan, something she supports. As for the twist reveal, even the show’s director loves what it depicts, as yet another play in the comedy tropes as the recast character.
