With Quicksilver now being a definite addition to both Avengers 2 and X-Men Days of Future past, it leaves us with a whole range of questions on how both Marvel and Fox will integrate the speedster into two completely different universes. Before we get into the issue of Marvel and Fox who now both sit with rights to Quicksilver, lets take a look at Evan Peters confirmed as Quicksilver:
Have a look at Evan Peters, from this day forward he shall be known as:
Not only has Joss Whedon already confirmed that the Marvel’s speedster will appear in the Avengers sequel, director Bryan Singer just announced that actor Evan Peters has been cast as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past!
History, Quicksilver is the son of Magneto, so his role in the new X-Men Days of Future Past will be very interesting. We picked up this rumor a while back in our Avengers 2, Everything you need to know. It won’t be long until the sister of Quicksilver, The Scarlet Witch is announced.
The Marvel and Fox issue
One concern is how Marvel will use Quicksilver compared to Fox. As we know Marvel has the rights to the Avengers movies, which we know will now feature Quicksilver, and Fox has the rights to X-Men, which will also feature Quicksilver. How will they integrate the character? Will the storyline for Quicksilver transcend production houses and play the same “story” for his character in both movies?
Will Evan Peters play both roles as Quicksilver, or will Marvel cast a different actor for the role of Quicksilver? This could be the first set for Marvel and Fox playing together nicely and figuring out something that will please all the fans.
Let’s hope they don’t stuff it up.
