Evan Peters reveals what Quicksilver will be up to in X-Men: Apocalypse
Prior to the release of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, I honestly wasn't expecting Evan Peters to come out on top of the dueling Quicksilver's, but damn if he didn't make the most of his short amount of screen-time. Peters will be returning as Quicksilver in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and he spoke with Details about what his character will be up to during the Apocalypse:
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.
Those of you who are familiar with Quicksilver's parentage from the comics will likely be able to guess who his father could be, as well as how it may affect X-MEN: APOCALYPSE by keeping father and son on opposite sides of the battle. Evan Peters was also asked if the upcoming film would be the greatest X-MEN film yet; "Absolutely," he responded. "It's the biggest X-Men film. It's about the apocalypse, so the scope of the film is huge." We'll hopefully be getting a look at the film sooner rather than later, as Bryan Singer posted on Instagram today that a teaser would be "coming soon".
Synopsis for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE:
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 will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
