Most people would agree X-Men Days of Future Past was a solid addition to the X-Men franchise. Even if they don’t, everyone agrees the Quicksilver scene was the highlight. The way director Bryan Singer used slow motion and camera effects to show how fast the character, played by Evan Peters, was truly memorable. Now it seems, he’s going to do it again.
On his Instagram, Singer tweeted an image of a bunch of actors on wires with the hashtag “#Quicksilver.” It seems everyone’s favorite speedster is gonna make a comeback in X-Men Apocalypse. See the X-men Apocalypse Quicksilver image and more below.
The image came from Singer’s Instagram. Here it is (you may have seen it in Superhero Bits Wednesday).
The caption is “Just another day at the office. #Quicksilver #Xmen #XmenApocalypse”
How does Quicksilver fit into this story? What’s the situation that necessitates the use of his mutant power? Is he doing this at some kind of college campus or something? Who knows, but it’s a super curious image.
X-Men Apocalypse is a massive film that’ll be out on May 27, 2016. Here’s who we know is in it:
There’s James McAvoy (Charles Xavier / Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Erik Lensherr / Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven / Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Hank McCoy / Beast), Evan Peters (Peter / Quicksilver), Lucas Till(Alex Summers / Havok), and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) from earlier films.
Newcomers to the franchise will include Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Scott Summers / Cyclops),Alexandra Shipp (Ororo Munroe / Storm), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Kurt Wagner / Nightcrawler), Ben Hardy (Warren Worthington III / Angel), Olivia Munn (Betsy Braddock / Psylocke), Lana Condor (Jubilation Lee / Jubilee), and Oscar Isaac (En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse).
Are you excited that there’s a new Quicksilver sequence? Is it possible Singer can top the last one? And how, if at all, do you think the fate of the Marvel Studios’ Quicksilver played into any decisions with this character?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
