Quicksilver Joining X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Played By KICK-ASS Actor Evan Peters

Well, this is a surprise! It seems that Fox studios has got the jump on Marvel Studios in bringing Quicksilver to the big-screen by way of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Check it out...

Despite Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being revealed recently to be joining Earth's mightiest heroes in The Avengers 2015 sequel, it seems the latter character will first appear in 20th Century Fox's 2014 mutant assembly, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer has just tweeted that actor Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, Never Back Down) is joining the ensemble cast of the “In-between-quel.” In other words, Fox just got the jump on Marvel Studios & Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon.

It's well known that both studios complicatedly hold the rights to Quicksilver, aka Pietro Maximoff, and both, therefore, could use him on the big-screen. However, Marvel Studios wouldn't be able to acknowledge the fact that he's a mutant and son of Magneto (who is being portrayed by Ian McKellen in X-Men: Days of Future Past); an advantage that Fox has. There's no word on whether the film will feature Quicksilver's twin sister, Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff, but what could Quicksilver's inclusion in Days of Future Past mean for The Avengers 2? What do you think?

Anyhow, X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently filming, and Evan Peters joins Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender,, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page and Booboo Stewart. Bryan Singer directs the film in theaters on July 18, 2014!

REDSTORM - 5/23/2013, 12:06 PM

Way to complicate things you incompetent asshole.

Darn you Singer! I'm sure you or Fox did that on purpose!
Curmudgeon - 5/23/2013, 12:08 PM
Begging the question: even though the two film studios' can't reference each other's films specifically, can this two-way character be played by the same actor in both company's films?

Maybe it's time Marvel Studios and Fox start playing ball?

TheManFromMars - 5/23/2013, 12:11 PM
Well, to be fair he already appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

LucasMend - 5/23/2013, 12:12 PM
Fox, you're a really jealous kid huh. But is better to see the kids with the father. let's see how this turns out.
TheOneAboveAll - 5/23/2013, 12:12 PM
@ManfromMars right you are
dellamorte1872 - 5/23/2013, 12:12 PM
THE RUSE IS EXPOSED. its obvious what MARVEL has decided to try. MISDIRECTION. QUICKSILVER cannot be in AVENGERS 2
DaenerysTargaryen - 5/23/2013, 12:12 PM
Marvel just got trolled!
Hellsing - 5/23/2013, 12:12 PM
Oh SNAP! besides this kind of being dick move(then again the character is fair game for both the studios). Evan Peters is a decent actor plus he'll probably be in for 2 minutes.
dellamorte1872 - 5/23/2013, 12:13 PM
i wonder if GIANT MAN will be in AVENGERS 2 and ANT-MAN just be in his own film?
Tony93 - 5/23/2013, 12:13 PM
I bet hes going to be in both avengers and x men.. fox and marvel are up to something
Abary - 5/23/2013, 12:15 PM
That just ruined Joss Whedon's script. Now he has to do rewrites. Not cool Fox. Just. Not. Cool.
Tony93 - 5/23/2013, 12:15 PM
or they are probly gonna be two entirley different ppl but still named quiksilver LOL this is what happens when marvel heros are spanned out among different companies..
what a cluster [frick]
LMB10 - 5/23/2013, 12:16 PM
Don't worry though, when X-Men is shit we'll have the satisfaction of knowing there's a better Quicksilver coming.
dellamorte1872 - 5/23/2013, 12:16 PM
does this mean no SCARLET WITCH? without him idk now that seems more unlikely but it has happened in the comics.
marvelstudios - 5/23/2013, 12:17 PM
Tony93 - 5/23/2013, 12:17 PM
I bet Joss will still have quicksilver and scarlet..
ALegendaryPanda - 5/23/2013, 12:17 PM
HAHAHAHA!! What a douche!
marvelstudios - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
Wait does this mean he won't be in the Avengers??
TheBeard - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
fox just threw him in cause of the avengers [frick] them
Supes17 - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
Nice move, Fox..
:P You have to admit that was pretty sly..

Knowing Wheddon, he'll probably say [frick] you and put him in Avengers 2 anyway lol
dellamorte1872 - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
superotherside - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
I hate you Fox. Nuff said.
LucasMend - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
Well Whedon, bring Ms Marvel and Vison or Black Phanter now.
LEVITIKUZ - 5/23/2013, 12:18 PM
Great move Fox. Oh my God I just find this funny as hell.

Now do the smart thing Marvel and put Black Panther and Ms Marvel or Ant Man and Wasp in Avengers 2.
