With every new ‘X-Men’ movie comes new mutants (no, not the New Mutants) and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be no exception.

So, now that we know we’ll see these characters, it’s time to find out who is going to play them in the movie.

One of the most delightful surprises of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was Quicksilver, the fast-talking, even faster-moving superhero played by Evan Peters, previously best known for his roles on 'American Horror Story.' Although early looks at the character online gave us the impression that he might be something of a joke, Quicksilver ended up delivering one of the best scenes of the film. Not only will he be returning for 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' but the second unit director is teasing that we might see the young hero strike out on his own at some point.
