One of the things I'm looking forward to seeing the most in X-Men: Apocalypse is how Quicksilver is utilized in the story this time around. I enjoyed his one scene in Days of Future Past, but I would have liked to have seen more of him in that movie.
While talking with Details, actor Evan Peters was asked about his role in the new movie and he offered up some interesting information:
“The story is that my character is searching for his father and wants to find him. It starts there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole Apocalypse madness: He tries to stop him from destroying the world.”
It sounds like he'll actually have a decent-sized role in the story this time around, which is nice. We also know he's going to have at least one big scene that might top the prison break scene from Days of Future Past.
As fans of the comic series also know, Quicksilver’s father is none other than Magneto. That relationship has yet to be officially confirmed on film, but it would obviously make sense if they did go that route.
The actor went on to praise the film, and when asked if Apocalypse would be the greatest X-Men movie of all time, he said:
“Absolutely. It’s the biggest X-Men film. It’s about the apocalypse, so the scope of the film is huge."
I have no doubt that this next chapter in the X-Men saga is going to be epic, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this trilogy is going to close out.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.”
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27th, 2016.
