X-MEN: APOCALYPSE's Quicksilver Scene Took a Month and a Half To Film
We're big fans of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, and one of the standout sequences of that movie was Evan Peters' Quicksilver scene. Here it is for those who may need a reminder:
You can have fast or cute. Thank you @20thcenturyfox marketing #marcweinstock #davesingh #elyorias and the team for getting us on #superbowl50 #nfl #fox#football #XMen #xmenapocalypse FYI this scene with #evanpeters as #quicksilver took one and a half months for a less than 3 minute sequence resulting in Evan working longer than any other actor on the film. Thanks Evan and #ryanmurphy @ahsfx for accommodating!
If the new scene took a month and a half to shoot, let's assume they're working an average of five out of every seven days, resulting in...let's call it 32 days of filming. X-Men: Days of Future Past's Quicksilver scene only took two days to film. So this one took sixteen times longer to make, and even though it's only going to be three minutes of screen time, it sounds like a significant amount of work went into making this scene as awesome as possible. I can't wait to see what they have in store.
X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in theaters on May 27th.
