He’s A Mutant Terrorist and An Avenger

Quicksilver, who along with his sister Scarlet Witch, is set to appear in Joss Wedon’s Avengers 2 , is now also going to be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently filming.

Director Bryan Singer tweeted the news on his personal account.

“Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.”

 

Quicksilver

The way Singer phrased the tweet, it would seem there was an agreement made, that Fox would get to use Quicksilver as a younger character, perhaps in the past scenes, while Marvel Studios will use an older, more adult version of the character. As we previously reported, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are a strange, unique case, where both studios have the rights to the characters, as they are both mutants (being the children of Magneto), and also longtime Avengers. As Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said last year, “They’re uh – It’s a little complicated, but if they want to use them in an X-Men movie they could, and if we want to use them in an Avengers movie we could. They’re unique.”

Evan Peters is a 26 year-old actor best known to comic book fans as “Todd,” one of Dave’s friends in Kick-Ass. More as this story develops.
