We’ve got the slightly unusual situation in the next couple of years, with the Marvel character Quicksilver set to appear in both X-Men: Days Of Future Past and The Avengers 2. However as the film rights are controlled by different companies he’ll be played by different actors. Avengers can’t mention his X-Men heritage, while X-Men can’t say he’ll one days join up with a superhero team.
Days Of Future Past will be our first taste of Quicksilver, and now Bryan Singer has tweeted out a hint towards that with a set photo of the Maximoff home. Quicksilver is Pietro Maximoff, who’s being played by American Horror Story’s Evan Peters.
There’s no news however on how he fits into the plot. Quicksilver is the son of Magneto, but we don’t know if he’s aware of this is the movie. And with a time-travelling plot, it’s not clear if he’ll be in the future with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart or the past with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.
The main plot revolves around the X-Men from the past having to stop an assassination that will result in giant robots called sentinels rounding up mutants and interning them in camps. It’s due out May 2014.
