Yesterday there were several online reports that American Horror Story star Evan Peters had joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming WandaVision series set for Disney+. It was said that Peters role in the show was unknown but there was some speculation the actor would reprise his role as Quicksilver which he played in Fox’s X-Men franchise.
Today we have a little more insight because insider Grace Randolph has revealed that Peters will likely be playing one of the most evil presences in the Marvel Universe – Mephisto.
Everyone is freaking out about Evan Peters playing quicksilver or Speed in Wandavision but @GraceRandolph has already reported that he is likely playing Mephisto. Still cool but for different reasons. Plus he’s seems a bit too old for Wanda’s son. #EvanPeters #WandaVision #Wanda

Set in the 1950s, WandaVision will follow the story of Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany’s superhero characters Scarlet Witch and Vision. The series blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Marvel’s WandaVision was slated to debut in December 2020 on the streaming service, but it is unknown if that date will be postponed.
