    Why not? Fassbender can play 35-40 and Peters can play 18-20 (he played a HS kid on AHS).

    Evan Peters is a fantastic choice as Quicksilver he is a tremendous actor and I know he going to do a great job with the role. As far as how he fits into the story in my mind there is no doubt Quicksilver will be part of the future cast. The future cast seems a more likely choice because to me the future doesn't mean present day. From the source material of DOFP there is a huge war going on between mutants and humans. I think Petro will be fighting by his father side in the future.

    The Avengers tie in I doubt, might get the same actor though but I doubt there be any mention to his X-Men past. I know people think the X-men being back in the Marvel hands would be great but I doubt it. Marvel movies want to stay away from some of the tougher subjects its comics were built on such as Tony's drinking, Nazi's and all the sudden God's dropping from the sky.

    Seems fishy it took this long to announce quicksilver and Whedon confirmed quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. It could be an agreement between the two parties. Would give quicksilver a good intro, if he is indeed heading to the Avengers as well.

    Considering the movie is about time travel of some sort I'm not that worried about the ages matching up perfectly.

    I'm more interested in whether or not Fox decided to pull the trigger on Quicksilver now that they know he was definitely in the works for Avengers 2

    But Fassbender Magneto couldnt have 33 on FC's 1962 and 36 on Days of future Past's 1973, lol.

    Magneto is 11 years older on this sequel.

    So he easily could have had some sex before FC events, lol. you know? he wasnt a teenager on FC.

    Right, theres even more than that, but I feel there may be a good dynamic introduced with the time travel aspect, and having sons/daughters etc. We could very well see Cable be brought in, and it revealed that jean/scott live in the end, etc.

    But thats a whole nother world of speculation. I just feel Singer has a purpose for him in relation to Magneto. Mags needs a fresh story element, and this is it! I really want Scarlett Witch to be announced for DOFP.

    Maybe Im wrong, I won't be upset if there is no family connection, because Im so used to it with the X-films. Its very sad and a huge missed opportunity though. More so than the other connections imo since Magneto is such a huge main focus.

    It doesn't add up to me. Those two actors do not look the right age for Father Son. There are some similarities I guess. I highly doubt there will be a subplot about him and his kids in this film. But really none of the continuity makes sense so if it happenes it happens. There are a ton of possibilities, especially with multiple timelines.

    I'm tired of this after thought bs though. They have had plenty of time to introduce Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. They should have been on the Brotherhood in X1 imo.

    I'm glad they're using Pietro in the film, and I have a hunch that he will be part of the 70s Brotherhood. Also it'll be good character development for Fassbender's Magneto, cause none of the 3 original films hinted at him having a family, so it'll be interesting to see a "father-son" dynamic between the two. These two are like "Harry/Norman Osbourne" son wants to please father, so he'll do anything for his appectance, but I'm guessing by the end of the film Pietro will see the error of his and Magneto's ways and they split.

    I hope that nobody is truly getting excited about a possible deal between Marvel and Fox:

    Among all this, my opinion is....GREAT! And if Scarlet Witch also appears... GREATER!(i wish it happens). I prefer them in X-men.
    It makes all sense..they first appear in X-Men and then Avengers i think, so the same way with the movies...love the fact they are mutants and magneto children..bring Polaris..:)

    I can explain it for you - or you can just read the HitFix article today describing growing animosity between FOX and Disney. It's in Disney/Marvel's best interest for FOX's X-Men films to continue their box office drop and allow Disney to regain their IP. There's no way Marvel is going to prop up FOX's films by linking them to the far more lucrative MCU. An Avengers -Justice League crossover can only help Marvel, and is therefore more likely. It's not "stupid" - it's just business.

    Just because the actor is 26 doesn't mean the character is 26.

    Peter's played a high school kid who couldn't have been any older than 18 on the first season of American Horror Story season 1 then turned around and played a older character in AHS season 2, so he can clearly pull off playing any age.

    Most of the actors in the First Class were significantly older than what their characters were portrayed to be - especially Ed Gathegi/Darwin.

    IF they have him and NOT mention that hes Magnus' son, and give him no dialogue or reference to Wanda, Singer will have wasted a golden opportunity.

    Since he can mention Magneto connection unlike Whedon, he should use it.
    I dont want Pietro and possibly Wanda to be the new riptide/Deathstrike lol

    yeah, Singer BETTER connect these three characters. whether its on the 70's or the future (hopefully the past, since that way they could spend more time with them)

    If Singer doesnt adress this..... well, let me stay optimistic

    rather he's from the future timeline or the past timeline, there was no mention of Mag's having kid(s) in the other movies (or even any mention of any past love interest or other such encounters... not that it means one didn't happen)

    but, obviously he was only recently reunited/or first learned of him (with in the last 10 years) so, even if he is his son, it not like he personally raised him
