QUICKSILVER Joins the Cast of X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST


Say wha?? He's also confirmed to be in Avengers 2 with Scarlet Witch.

Bryan Singer tweet

quote:

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


quote:

The way he phrases the tweet, it seems 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 (and 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."

Wow. Quicksilver, of all characters, is about to get all kinds screentime. Interesting I guess.

Oh and just in case this gets your hopes up of characters from other studios showing up with the Avengers..

Was this ever confirmed? I guess it doesn't really matter, because I believe that whichever movie comes out first will have the rights. And that's going to be X-Men

Read the quote. They can both use these particular characters.

Well, Wikipedia tells me that Evan Peters is 26 years old. So I think the guy/website that wrote that 2nd quote may have missed the mark on speculating t would be him as a younger character.

Oh, so apparently it is confirmed now. The previous time you posted that it was confirmed there were only rumors based on a "no comment" quote

You are not wrong. I did suffer some regret from starting that thread a tad prematurely.

As far as the news goes, I really don't care. Whedon has a real affinity for the characters and I'm sure we'll see a fun version of them, as Singer seems to be just using the character now that he see's he'll be a huge part of the impending blockbuster.

There is going to be a glutton of characters in XMEN:DOFP, but that may be appropriate if they're mainly in the "future" getting slaughtered.

I didn't read any of the links in this thread, but a blog post I read yesterday indicated that we could end up seeing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in both universes, but in the MCU they wouldn't necessarily be Magneto's kids or be called 'mutants'. Would have different last names also.

But I have a feeling that Singer is just pulling a douche move on this one because Whedon has been public about wanting to use those characters.

I always imagined quicksilver as being a guy in his late 30's/early 40's. Maybe he'll be in a past timeline?

First reaction: WTF? There are tons of better characters available. Some version of Cable? A better Gambit? frickING BISHOP IN YOUR FACE!

quote:

#EvanPeters


On that note, the dude is a great actor, so if this is njust a way to get some talent in the film, maybe it works.

quote:

Avengers 2 with Scarlet Witch.


Maybe a worse choice than Quicksilver in X4 for Avengers 2. Like horribly bad. First of all, Avengers has even better B characters than X-Men, Vision, Black Panther, Ant-Man (who has been sorta semi-confirmed), etc.

Secondly, Scarlet's powers will be a real problem to A) Translate to film B) Not be really hokey



Once again, really not liking Singer and he's ruining Whedon.

At one point very early in their history, the entire Avengers team consisted of Cap, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.



For the sake of nostalgia alone, I wouldn't mind seeing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch pop up for parts in the movie. Maybe they'll have the old Cap' Kooky Quartet go on a side mission of some kind that requires stealth and skill more that muscle while the heavy hitters like Thor, Iron Man and the Hulk square off directly against the bad guys.

Not if they do it like the Ultimate Version (without the incest).

In the Ultimate Marvel Version, Wanda has to make the precise calculations every time she uses her power. The more drastic the change, the more difficult the calculation.

Remember, her power isn't that she warps reality. Her power is that she can alter probability

I did not know that. (wasn't reading CB's when Ultimates came around).

Sounds a lot like the infinite improbability drive in Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Now if they'll come up with a character whose powers are based on the way numbers behave only in Italian Bistros, I'll be a happy camper.

Of course he is and so is Black Panther and Vision but Whedon doesn't agree evidently. Panther may show up though.



And who the shite is down voting my posts??

Not me. Must be another Qucksilver fan out there.

I just hope they get somebody smoking hot to play Wanda. Can never have too much sex appeal in these movies.
