Evan Peters is one of the leading names in the anthology TV series American Horror Story by Ryan Murphy, in which we have seen him in numerous facets playing always different roles.
The US actor also gained worldwide popularity thanks to the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which he starred Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver. Peters also took part in the Disney+ TV series WandaVisionactually not as Quicksilver but as actor Ralph Bohner.
Most recently he starred in the Netflix series Dahmer – Monster: the story of Jeffrey Dahmer in which he played the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
In a recent interview, Evan Peters spoke of his eventual return to Marvel, admitting that he is tired of dark roles like the one played in the Netflix series.
Evan Peters would gladly return to Marvel: he is tired of roles like Dahmer
During an interview with Deadline, the actor spoke about the possibility of returning to the world of cinecomics, stating that he would like to try his hand at a Marvel film again.
To the interviewer who says: “A lot of people say ‘I want to be in a Marvel movie’, but you already have”Peters risponde:
“I would gladly do another Marvel movie. Yes, I think for me Dahmer will be the last dark character that I will play from here for a long time. So it was kind of a goodbye to that time where I worked really hard on stuff like that, and now I’m going to try to change course. Anything light is fine, I’m trying to stay out of the dark for a while.”
Here is the piece of the interview in which he talks about it:
The actor had already revealed in the past that he “plays someone normal” and thus takes a break from more obscure roles such as Jeffrey Dahmer, stating
“I don’t like being scared. It’s really hard for me to play these parts because they challenge me as an actor and hurt me as a person. I want to make people laugh and have fun”.
At the moment we don’t know if we will see Peters again in some Marvel project, in the role of Quicksilver, or in those of Ralph Bohner, perhaps in the TV series Agatha: Agent of Chaos.
