Default Re: Evan Peters Joins X-Men: DOFP as Quicksilver

Also, I don't think the general audience will even realize they're the same character. They will be completely different. In addition to the vast difference in their roles, the QS in DOFP will be American and won't be called Pietro and will be a mutant. The QS in A2 will not be called Quicksilver, will be british, and will be far more fleshed out and will have a completely different explanation for where his powers come from. The only similarity between them will be their powers.

I agree with this. Singer has said on record months ago that he's wanted to use Quicksilver and I expected him to use him in this movie. That said if he wanted t just use speed on film then he could have done Northstar.

While I'm sure he is okay, he is not Quicksilver. Them casting him just proves he will be little more than a glorified cameo and Singer is only interested in using Quicksilver's abilities on screen, not really the character itself. That "before he was an Avenger he was just a really fast kid" comment supports this as well.

And in any case, as I have said repeatedly, Fox cannot actually tell the twins' origin, only Marvel can. Fox does not own the righrs necessary to tell their origin. The twins' origin does not involve Magneto at all. The studio that would have to alter the twins' origins is Fox, not Marvel.

Those are a lot of assumptions, man. We don't know if Quicksilver will be just a glorified cameo in DOFP, and we don't know if he will be British, far more fleshed out, etc. in TA2.

That's like hearing that Singer wants Nightcrawler because he's the only one that could deliver an action scene he has in mind for X2(the White House scene). Aside from that, Nightcrawler was given enough screentime as a character while also getting a great action scene. But hey, you could be right. My point is that we don't know. All we heard was that Singer has a sequence in mind that he wanted to use Quicksilver in. That's it.

But, I digress.
