Some new audition tapes for Marvel Studios’ WandaVision have debuted and the reads from the actors have teased a past character.
Our good friend Daniel Richtman found the tapes which feature two brothers auditioning for the roles of Wiccan and Speed, Wanda and Vision’s twin children. In one of the videos (seen below) one of the actors is talking about Halloween, which we know is something they’ve filmed for the series and then he mentions his “uncle,” who is none other than Quicksilver, who we last saw in Avengers: Ultron.

It should be noted that this could simply be a nod to the character. While speaking with ScreenRant, Aaron Taylor-Johnson stated he wouldn’t be returning to the MCU:
“I think we’re both open to possibilities, like the Marvel Universe like it has been over the years, but obviously yes, I’m aware of the Disney+ platform and all of the shows that are going and I’m still in touch with a lot of the people. I mean, I think it’s safe to say that no, I’m not gonna… there will be no appearance of me coming out or Quicksilver appearing anytime soon.”
Paul Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, as they become the perfect married 50’s, nuclear family.
Teyonah Parris will also appear on the series as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn is playing a nosey neighbor reportedly named Agatha. Josh Stamberg will also appear alongside Randall Park as secret agents.
According to recent reports Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch will be on set for the last week of filming for WandaVision, which lines up with another story reported stating longtime Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would be the antagonist for the series, as well as Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige previously stating the film will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The series is also rumored to have shot in front of a live studio audience, and will pay homage to the multi-camera sitcom comedies throughout television history, including I Love Lucy.
WandaVision will make its debut on Disney+ later this year.
