Going into last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, I think one of the biggest concerns for a lot of fans was Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. The previous images and magazine covers for the film had not done the character any justice up until that point, and I don’t think anyone really knew what to think about his interpretation when they sat down to watch the movie. Turns out, he was one of the biggest highlights of the film, and gave comic book fans one of the best scenes of any superhero movie ever, in which he raced around a room at full speed, saving his fellow mutants.
Now, with the character set to return for a hopefully much-larger role in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, it seems like his role in the story is one of the biggest wildcards of what will likely end up being the largest X-Men film to date. It looks like the creative team were just as impressed by that kitchen scene as we were though.
While recently speaking with Collider, Peters himself revealed that Apocalypse will feature a scene in the same vein as the one in Days of Future Past on a much larger, and longer scale. Read his full quote below:
“Yeah, Quicksilver does his thing again, in the new film. It’s bigger, longer and more detailed. I think it’s an amazing sequence that they’ve put together. Just filming it, I was like, “Oh, my god!” I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It’s so cool to take that much time to make something like that really pop and really work. Knock on wood, I think it’s going to be a fun and enjoyable sequence for people to watch, with Quicksilver running around and doing his thing in slow-mo time. I hope people like it.”
There’s no word on what the context of that scene might be, or when it will happen in the film, but I for one, am looking forward to hearing what classic song Quicksilver will be running around to this time. With the trailer for the movie set to premiere in just a few short weeks before screenings of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens too, audiences and fans will finally get their first real look at what to expect from the latest installment in the popular franchise, and hopefully, our first look at Quicksilver’s return as well.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theatres on May 27th, 2016.
