‘Wandavision’ Fan Theory Suggests How Agatha Knew Quicksilver

One of the enduring mysteries of the Disney Plus series Wanda Vision is exactly how Agatha Harkness knew potentially fourth-wall Evan Peters, who previously played Quicksilver in another film franchise.

When fans got their first glimpse of Evan Peters appearing in Wanda Vision, many speculated that the Multiverse had finally opened up and we were about to get goofy returns from many of the characters from previous film continuities. In the end, it turned out to be a character named Ralph Bohner. Now that’s a bit of a subversion of quality expectations.

But, what is the reason Agatha chose Ralph Bohner, a guy who looks a lot like Quicksilver from another universe? It’s simple: she used the Darkhold herself, noted that Bohner looked like her brother from another universe, and found him on Earth-616.

Complex enough? /u/Nyangun_Monte thinks everything is pretty straightforward in their fan theory. Considering Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness reintroduced Patrick Stewart as Professor X from those same movies, it just might stack up.

Wanda Maximoff’s trauma in this series then led to her villainous turn in Multiverse of Madness, where she is just trying to find a universe with her children. Yes, she beheads a few people along the way, but hey, what’s love if not beheading people so you can see your kids?

It’s unclear if Scarlet Witch will truly atone for the Illuminati’s murder of Earth-838, but has she at least somehow made up for it by submitting to Doctor Strange? Honestly, she’s going to need a lot more therapy after her multiverse shenanigans.

Wanda Vision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are both currently available to stream on Disney Plus.
