A WANDAVISION star appears to have been ‘dropped’ by Disney+ after a huge spoiler leak ruined an iconic character’s shock return.
The Disney+ series has had viewers gripped as each episode drops on a Friday, and the fifth instalment delivered a real shock right at the end.
*Spoilers ahead for WandaVision*
However, the moment was ruined for a large number of Marvel fans after it was leaked online last month.
The scene in question saw Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) open her front door to find a familiar face standing there – sort of.
After teasing the man from behind, the camera moved round to the front to reveal it was her brother Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff.
However, in a further twist, Quicksilver was played by Evan Peters – who has portrayed the character in the X-Men films – as opposed to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who had played Quicksilver alongside Elizabeth in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Last month, voiceover actor Rhodri Martin – who voiced the character’s Spanish dub in the X-Men films – revealed he had recorded some scenes for WandaVision.
But ComicBookMovie has noted that in the credits for episode five, Rhodri’s name was absent, and instead, Manuel Gimeno was listed as Quicksilver, leaving some to speculate Rhodri was dropped by Disney+ for his potential part in the spoiler.
WandaVision explained Evan’s arrival as Quicksilver instead of Aaron as the role being ‘recast’ in the sitcom Wanda and Vision (Paul Bettany) are currently living in.
Evan played Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014, X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 and Dark Phoenix in 2019, as the films are not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Fans who saw the spoilers ahead of Evans big reveal were gutted, with one writing on Twitter last month: “WandaVision leaks are going around right now, so be careful. And for those sharing them, what if you just don’t? Don’t ruin the experience for others.”
Another tweeted: “Guys plz tag spoilers with that voice actor leak. That’s big news and I’m really disappointed I can’t be surprised by it when I actually watch the show.”
A third added: “If I see another a WandaVision leak, I am going to SCREAM.”
WandaVision is available on Disney+ with new episodes dropping on Fridays.
