Everyone is dying to learn more about Once Upon a Time's twisted version of Peter Pan, but the writers are keeping most info about Season 3's apparent villain under wraps. Fortunately, in a recent interview Lana Parrilla had some good news about when we can expect to learn more about this mysterious version of the iconic character.

E! caught up with the Once Upon a Time cast at Comic-Con 2013. Lana was asked when we're going to find out who's playing Peter Pan, and she promised, "Definitely in the first five episodes." Yay! This doesn't come as a huge shock, but we're glad to know the Peter reveal isn't being held to the end of the season or anything like that.
Exactly how evil is Peter, anyway? When asked if Peter will be badder than Regina, Lana said she hopes not, but then quickly revised that: "Maybe the audience hopes so, because there'll be some serious battles!"
She added that part of the fun is that Peter is "so mysterious, and this land is so foreign, that we just have no idea that we're going to encounter."
Meanwhile, Jennifer Morrison said that she's just as curious as the fans to learn more about Peter and why he's so different from the storybook version of the character we all know and love. "Emma does point out very quickly — she's like, 'listen, I've read these stories, and he's always nice. I don't get it, why are we so afraid of this guy?'"
Of course, as Jennifer went on muse, "a villainous 17-year-old boy does sound kind of terrifying."
