There's no feat to let a Wizard do that, not even at Epic level (lv20+). Basically it means you have to have levels of Sorcerer (+ draconic bloodline), or Bard, neither of which need to prepare arcane spells.

You mean without having to prepare it in advance? No, Wizards don't do that. That is the main drawback wizards have in comparison to Sorcerers. At least in 3.5, there is the metamagic feat Quicken Spell, which allows you to cast spells as a free action. However, you can only do so once per turn (though you can cast a spell in a non-quickened fashion that same turn), and the spell you want to cast in this way has to be prepared at a level 4 levels higher than it actually is (so preparing a level 1 spell as a quickened spell uses up a level 5 spell slot). Also, the normal casting time of the spell being quickened must be no more than a single round. That's the best you can do for accelerating casting as a Wizard.
