he thought It was way to sneak In characters who could be used more In future.
Iceman and Pyro got bigger roles In X2.
Colossus In X2 was intended to be beefed up in future.
Evan Peters Is not the kind of actor you get for just 1 or 2 scenes.If that was case they would hire a local actor.That alone makes you think there Is more to quicksilver.
Shawn Ashmore has now been in 4 films because they liked what he brought as Iceman.
Daniel Cudmore was keep as Colossus for last stand since they felt he had right look for colossus and since they weren't doing much why bother recasting him.
Hardly. Not to disparage his fans or anything, and I know he's a good actor and all, but he's hardly that big of a name. He's had one success under his belt in American Horror Story, which while a critical success, doesn't pull in huge numbers. They're big for the FX network yes, but in the grand scheme of things, most other shows would be canned shortly after pulling in the kind of numbers it does. So no, taking a small role in a movie like this is absolutely not beneath Evan. He still has bills to pay like everyone else.
