Default Quicksilver's hair - how should it look?

I can think of three really good reasons why Pietro's hair should be a normal colour and not white like in the comics.

1. Pietro inherited his hair from his dad, Papa Magneto. In the X-men series, Magneto's hair is caused by age and as we saw he either had brown or black hair when he was younger.

2. He can't mention ol' Daddy Magneto anyway so you don't need that visual link

3. It might make him look old and grey.

That said, I would love to see Pietro's hair colour just like in the comics for some even better reasons...

1. It's always good to follow what the comics have done to a certain extent

2. It's cute. Trust me, if fangirls made Avengers 2 a hit because of Loki (some of them anyway) then they will LOVE Pietro!

3. It defines Pietro's oddness and gives him an alternative punch-to-the-status-quo look. Somewhere around David Bowie or Spike from Buffy (which alot of people have been comparing him with)

What do you think?

Here is what they might go for...



(Just kidding about the last one ). I reckon the first one would suit Pietro the best. It's intriguing and matches his personality.

Keep the platinum/white hair. And as for his costume, I want it to be similar to his costume in X-Men: Evolution.

I wonder if fox will have to keep their pietro's hair a normal colour and marvel will go more similar to the comics to try and differentiate it.

It makes sense that foxPietro will have brown hair like Fassbender and because Singer doesn't like strange hairstyles (he even had a problem with Storm's) but it wouldn't surprise me if they made his hair silver first just so Marvel are forced to give him brown hair, just to upset marvel's track record of translating comics to film accurately.

Maybe it depends on who releases a promo pic first? I hope marvel cast their Pietro soon

has it really ever been implied that he inherited his white hair from his father? I always just thought it was an unusual side effect of his mutation

I would guess that TA2's Quicksilver has white/platinum hair as Whedon seem so into him and SW that I think he wants them to be like he remembers them from reading the comics.

I say keep the hair color true to the comics - the color was established years before any kinship with Magneto was even hinted at...

1. They've never had any history of interefeering with another studios CBMs. Quite the opposite.
2. The track record in question isn't comic accurate.

Movie wasn't called The Ultimates, and the point was headgear not costume.

Oh wow, so now you're gonna split hairs like that. Do you also have a problem with Sam Jackson as Fury because its the 'Ultimates' version? The MCU has been taking inspiration from the the ultimates and 616 since its inception.

That's one of the dumbest thing I've read in these forums. So just because the movie wasn't called 'Ultimates', it doesn't mean the MCU can't take inspiration from the Ultimate comics right? Hawkeye didn't wear any head gear in the ultimate comics. And his purple costume would look silly and goofy on-screen. It's down-right awful.

I think it should be kept Silver because it could be a way of saying he's a mutant later without even saying it lol

that's a good point him having an unnatural looking hair color (at least for a character in his 20s) would imply some sort of genetic anomaly without them having to out right say mutant

I know Marvel shies away from questionable head ornamentation, but the hair is a must.

other then that everyone's hair color has been accurate to their comic book counterpart

Evan's went blond
Scarlett had red hair
Hemsworth had long hair

I think a Targaryan-like platinum blonde would be a good look.

He should have a silvery platinum blond head of hair. It helps to give him a distinct look which he should have, him being different (mutant) and all.

He needs to have those two strands sticking out in the front like antennae.

F*** I hate Quicksilver. Why the hell can't WB get a Flash movie off the ground, yet this douche is going to appear in in TWO movies in a year's time?

Sorry, rant over.

I don't hate Quicksilver. But i agree with what you're saying. I'm much more a fan of Flash. We'll have to settle for the first fast guy in his own movie
