Evan Peters has joined X-Men: Days of Future Past as Quicksilver. No word on how this affects The Avengers 2

May. 23, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Remember about a week ago when Joss Whedon shook up the Internet and announced that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be the newest heroes to appear in THE AVENGERS 2? Yeah, it seems that Bryan Singer and Fox didn't get the memo because Singer just tweeted this out to the world:

So, either we have a competition between 20th Century Fox and Disney to see who has the rights to these characters, or something bigger is coming. Fox has the rights to all characters who fall under the mutant category for their X-MEN films. As we have seen over the years, this has caused some creative thinking between the studios to make sure they don't step on each others toes. But, this is the first time I can recall something like this happening. If Fox invokes the rights to use Quicksilver, will Whedon fold and change his plans for THE AVENGERS 2? Or, can two different actors play variations of the same character in both THE AVENGERS and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST? Or, could it be our dream scenario: could Disney and Fox have found a way to bridge their cinematic universes?

Before we all blow our collectives loads over that possibility, lets focus on the casting itself. Peters has made himself known to the world playing two totally different characters on the first two seasons of AMERICAN HORROR STORY. In both, he showed an incredible range at playing both bad and good, a vital characteristic to make Quicksilver work. I like this casting as it is both under the radar and has the potential for great success.

Considering the character is tied directly to Magneto and therefore falls under X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST in terms of scope, Quicksilver is vital to several storylines in THE AVENGERS. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST opens July 18, 2014 and THE AVENGERS 2 opens May 1, 2015.

Great casting!

Evan Peters is an AWESOME actor. He's great on American Horror Story and I know he's gonna be great as Quicksilver.

feels forced

something about this news, if its real, feels like they saw the direction Avengers was heading and said, Quick, get him in there! I dont care if hes delivering pizza or dies faster than that black kid in First Class! Cast it now!
Scarlet Witch will come tomorrow. And by the way FOX, Quicksilver was only in 1 or 2 XMen issues before he joined the Avengers, so lighten up Frances.

I really hope this makes Whedon rethink about the characters and add Ms. Marvel or something. Just spit balling.

Can't wait for the first teaser or trailer and everyone's opinion will be completely different. Don't fret fans, this movie is in the right hands.

yeah, lol. Haters always act like this and end liking the movies, so. This wont be different. In fact, this has the potential to be more epic and intense than all previous x-men movies combined. Fox, Singer, Vaughn and co, arent playing this time around.

Waaaaaaa!

Can't believe all the crying and moaning going on here. It seems like the consensus on why Last Stand was such a bad movie is because there were so many characters in it. Wrong. Last Stand was such a bad movie because it was directed by that idiot Ratner. And he came on board to direct it last minute. Poor story and poor direction always equals poor movie. You guys sound like huge drama queens when you carry on with the whole "What?!?!? Another mutant is in this movie??? I knew it, gonna be a

I knew it, gonna be a bigger piece of flustercuck than X-Men Last Stand, I guarantee it!!!! Suck my saggy nipples, Singer!!!!" crap. Gimme a break.

Why doesn't everyone just jam their binkies back in their mouths and wait for it to come out before you carry on with declaring it the worst movie of all time. Sounds like film will be going back and forth between two different time periods, each period having its own set of characters - there will be the core characters from X1 and X2 in the future, and then core characters from First Class that will get the focus, I'm sure.

for all the people saying that DOFP has too many characters...

Charles Xavier, Magneto, Moira McTaggart, Mystique, Emma Frost, Sebastian Shaw, Azazel, Riptide, Angel, Beast, Banshee, Havok, Darwin and even a cameo from Wolverine. That's about characters right there, not to mention all the ancillary characters. That movie was just as "bloated" as DOFP is turning out to be, yet everyone is singing its praises. If First Class was able to pull off a good story with that many characters, there's no reason why DOFP can't do the same. So everybody calm your tits

There's no reason why Evan Peters can't be Quicksilver in Avengers 2 and no reason why he should have to. Marvel didn't even bring back Eric Bana for The Incredible Hulk.

I'm shocked by all the backlash for this movie considering Singer's last Xmen film was X2, which was a great movie. If Twitter was popular when he filmed that, it would be like him announcing casting for small parts like Jubilee, Kitty Pride, Siryn, etc. All these characters will end up with minimal screen time compared to the principles. Calm down ya'll.

Otherwise he wouldnt even use the #Avengers hash tag, because without Marvel's involvement, that's a gamble.

Also

Why does Fox keep insisting on having their superheroes be little kids? Quicksilver, Warpath, Bishop, and (potentially , probably) Human Torch and Invisible Woman all look like 15 year olds.

Someone on a different thread summed up the casting of this movie perfectly. Apparently Singer is gay and therefore doesn't understand the concept of "Badass" He casts actors he personally finds attractive hence this cast of young looking dudes with no hair and barely any masculinity. I wish I couuld remember who said it because his/her observations were dead on.

So if it turns into a franchise they can get a long run out of the actor. Or you know, the Singer being a homo thing Antarius brought up

Mmm ya I don't really agree with the gay theory. Also, I agree with Herc that is probably the ONLY minor plus to having kids play superheroes, but is likely NOT the reason why it happens. I'm sure it's some lame brained studio decision. Like they're more marketable, cheaper, easier, etc.

Just do what you were going to do, Joss. Don't let Fox fuck this up. If that means 2 different Quicksilvers, so be it. The MCU is official, and everything from Fox and Sony is UNofficial. If the general audiences are too stupid to realize this, then FUCK THEM.

I agree. As is Spider-man 1 and 2. I also like Spider-man 3, Daredevil, and Hulk, more than Incredible Hulk, Iron man 2, Thor, Cap, and Iron Man 3. In fact, Iron man 3 makes me question the entire MCU and it's quality and where it's headed. But it doesn't change the fact that everything outside of Marvel/Disney, is UNOFFICIAL.

something else i wanna point out, just because all these character are in the film, doesn't men they will have a big role, maybe some of them are going to be small roles. Maybe some will appear in the future while others are in the past. Think it unfair just because there a lot of characters in this film that it gonna be overloaded, Hell for all we know, Many of these characters could end up dead during the movie Im excited to see the end result.

X-Men: The Last Stand REDUX anyone????

I have never liked or hated any of Singer's X-Men films. X2 was a better film than X1 and honestly First Class was the best X-Men film. I feel like this is a" F@ck you to First Class and I'm going to make a bigger mess than what Brett Ratner did with The Last Stand." The more bloated this movie gets with character the less hope I have of this being any better than X3. Bryan Singer back to work on the X films was what lost me since day one!

Even though Quicksilver was always more prominent in the Avengers comics, he just makes more sense in the X-Men movie universe. If he were in the Avengers they would either have to make him not a mutant, or come up with some lame explanation as to how there were mutants this whole time and no one ever knew about them.

They BOTH own the rights!

Everyone CALM DOWN.

I thought everyone on Joblo, including the editors were aware that Fox AND Marvel BOTH own the rights to Scarlet Witch and Quick Silver. Marvel just cannot introduce them as "mutants". No mention of that word is permitted. And in turn Fox isn't allowed to mention anything dealing with The Avengers. BUT, it's already been ANNOUNCED that both studios own the rights to those characters.

Just because Quick Silver is in Xmen, he can STILL be cast in The Avengers and we

Unless marvel and Fox are planning some super-verse together and using Quick Silver as some sort of bridge (which would be duuuuuumb) then everything's fine, people. You'll just have Fox's version and Marvel's version!

Singer made two excellent movies in the franchise. He doesn't have the best track record with henchmen but I have faith in him. As for character rights...

Wasn't out started that they deal under both? Only one franchise can't reference the avengers and the other can't ref mutants and magneto? I am fine with this on both sides. Both directors have delivered on their franchises and I well wait to pass judgment on the films for their release.

It seems to me that DoFP has been in production ALOT longer that Avengers 2, which isn't even through scripting yet! Take a deep beath and try and look @ this objectively, not as a group of pitchfork & torch wielding townsfolk.

What you are saying is possible, but as you say XM:DoFP has been in production a long time, and they are just now adding a Quicksilver? In his tweet Singer kind of twists the knife a little about using Quicksilver; saying he was an X-Men character first.

Obviously, they are going with a young Quicksilver. Maybe Disney is going with an older Quicksilver and that will be the compromise? In any event, Singer is adding characters at what seems to be an unsustainable rate if you want any of them

Yea its more than fishy Whendon would make the announcment then a few weeks later Fox makes it, its not like Disney knows what Singers script is and who was in it and said lets use him because Fox is, its way more likely Fox and Singer saw mutants were being used by Disney and just wanted to be dicks and use them first, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch seemed like great choices for X3 when Magneto was building his army, but they werent used. While I guess anything is possible its def more likely

quicksilver IS A MUTANT. HE'S AN X-MEN CHARACTER. The only reason he was prob in talks for Avengers 2 is retaliation for Fox claiming Viper in The Wolverine.

What?

I have held out on the criticism, but X-Men DOFP is rapidly headed towards XM3 territory. Just jamming in as many characters as possible without any possibility of making them a fleshed out. Unless the movie is six hours long, there is no way they could give most of these characters anything but a cameo. Just jamming them in there is not gonna work for fans, as it didn't for XM3.

Furthermore, I think it is a dick move to stick Quicksilver in there after Whedon has made it clear he intended

Furthermore, I think it is a dick move to stick Quicksilver in there after Whedon has made it clear he intended to use the character in A2. They have had the X-Men for a decade and never felt compelled to include Quicksilver in their universe. All of the sudden he is included in XM:DOFP? Please. If Quicksilver is not expressly stated in the contract between Fox and Marvel I bet Disney's army of lawyers are frothing at the mouth to get into this. It would be one thing to push around Marvel, quite another to fuck around with Disney. They are legendarily litigious.

Everything. About this flick sound worst, and WORST, with EVERY news I hear about it ! I want to hope for the best (or, at least, the good), but it's getting harder and HARDER...

Well, this movie just took a wrong turn to Shitsville! Guaranteed Singer is feeling territorial and just wants to try and knock the Avengers off the podium. So he's going to take the opportunity to steal their thunder. At this point he's just adding characters for the sake of adding characters and I have a feeling the quality of the actual story has become lost. I mean, why the hell is he still casting people when he's already a month into production? I've officially given up on this movie.

Peters is great but...

Evan Peters is a great up and coming actor and Im sure will do a great job as Quicksilver but I'm with the majority here. Singer is just being a dick and doing what he can to screw Disney on Avengers 2. The only way this movie works is that he is adding the extra characters he to show how many popular mutants die in the future, otherwise this movie is going to be a mess.

What if this is the beginning of an X-men/Avengers team up?

I can't see that as likely. These are billion dollar franchises. I can't see the companies sharing them. Disney is notorious for defending their properties in court.

Maybe that's what Fox wants? Stick Quicksilver in there as an afterthought to get Disney to sue you and it will cost them millions of dollars. And if they win all you lose is a character you never cared about anyway. Corporate gamesmanship works just like this.

Couldn't of said it better myself. He took over a project that was all ready to shoot and this movie just seems to put XMen First Class as some sort of One Shot that's going to continue into the present XMen Universe -(X3 not included?)- and he's pissing all over it to mark his territory.

Sounds like Fox is trying to compete with Marvel big time

it is def not a coincidence Singer added quicksilver to this, and we will probably see the scarlet witch too, now maybe this is the begining of both universes being brought together, but I think its just Fox trying to steal some thunder from Marvel. 1) Fox DOES NOT want to go head to head with Marvel, they will get crushed. 2) you want to talk about adding too many characters to a movie? Sorry, DoFP is going to be a cluster fuck of characters, I could be wrong I guess (and for the most part

Sorry, DoFP is going to be a cluster fuck of characters, I could be wrong I guess (and for the most part I'm hoping I am and its an enjoyable movie) but lets face it, Fox fucks up their Marvel characters and movies and this really seems to just be a hey lets throw all these characters in a movie, name it after a famous comic and we will make money type thing.

Spot on. This sounds worse and worse all the time. There are so many characters most of them would be lucky to even have any lines. There is no way Quicksilver's addition is a coincidence.

I don't think it's funny that one artist is trying to paint a portrait many years from being released while another artist says " hey I don't really need that color in my painting but I'm going to use it to fuck with you ". I know these aren't the best pieces of modern art in our area but they are high pieces of commercial art with far reaching consequences for the directors and studios. This makes me say FUCK FOX and FUCK SINGER for being a corporate stooge if they put him up to it.

I would say this is a total dick move. Little other explanation. They have had the X-Men for a decade or more and never included Quicksilver before now.
