Marvel Pulled a Bohner

The final episode of, "Wandavision," has been out more than two days so it's cool to talk about spoilers, right? It was a fantastic finale and set-up future movies with skill. The thing that got me though, was the shocking reveal of Evan Peters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda's brother Pietro being...well, a real Bohner. Everyone thought it maybe was a crossover between cinematic universes as Peters played the speedster in the X-Men flicks. 

Nope, he was just a dude named Ralph Bohner who Agnes/Agatha was controlling with dark magic to try and manipulate Wanda. Casting Peters for the role was basically a little easter egg, not some massive continuity-reshaping event. Men's Health of all people summed it up pretty well. Perhaps this isn't the last we will hear of Ralph, maybe there are more twists coming with him. It would be kind of a waste of a talent like Evan Peters to have that be the last we see of him in the MCU, after all. For now, though, he's just a Bohner that Marvel fooled us with.
