‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Have More Quicksilver Action, According to Evan Peters
One of the highlights of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was Quicksilver’s big, slow-mo action sequence. Although early looks at Evan Peters in the film didn’t exactly inspire confidence, both Peters and Singer really delivered on the promise of the character, giving us one of the most memorable X-moments to date. If you were curious about whether we’d see Peters reprise the role for X-Men: Apocalypse, the actor has revealed that it’s quite likely.
In an interview with I Am Rogue, Peters was asked if he’ll return for X-Men: Apocalypse, which takes the mutants into the ‘80s as they face off with their most intimidating and dangerous threat yet. Writer and producer Simon Kinberg basically confirmed Peters’ return to the franchise last year, but here’s what Peters had to offer:
I think so, yes. I assume it as well, but I don’t know what I’m supposed to say and not supposed to say. I haven’t seen a script.
When asked if he’d be available for filming with his increasingly busy schedule, Peters seemed unsure and sort of repeated himself:
No. We’ll see. I think… I don’t know what I can say and what I can’t say. All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet.
It’s not surprising that Peters can’t say much, given that a.) he hasn’t seen a script, and b.) production on superhero films is often quite secretive. Perhaps with Apocalypse’s jump to the ‘80s, we’ll get to see an older Scarlet Witch, who was just a little girl in Days of Future Past. It would be awesome to see her get in on the X-Men action in the upcoming sequel.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
