Quicksilver Revealed – X-Men: Days of Future Past

Empire Magazine is unveiling 25 covers from from X-Men: Days of Future Past today, each featuring a different character. This includes the look for Evan Peters as Quicksilver, or, as The Beat calls it, the 90s club kid version of the character. The movie opens in May.

Another version of Quicksilver will also appear in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, played by Aaron Johnson, the first character to appear in both Fox’s X-Men films and the Marvel cinematic universe, due to an overlap in the film rights between the Avengers and X-Men.

    They should have stuck with the white hair and kept it short. Silver or gray hair does not work on a young character in live action.

    Not feeling it. Honestly quicksilver has always had bad costumes… But this is like the smallville version of him.
    Mans his belt filled with calculators or whatever? Crazy goofy.

    Yeah, not surprised. Is it too mean of me to hope that the movie sucks so that the X-Men rights can go back to Marvel as quickly as possible?

    I finally watched “The Wolverine” over the weekend, and between that and “X-Men: First Class” I think Fox has actually gotten their act back together. I’m certainly more interested in “Days of Future Past” than the next “Amazing Spider-Man.”

        The way I see it, First Class & The Wolverine were a heck of a lot better than X3 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, plus Bryan Singer’s back. That outbalances a silly costume for one member of a huge ensemble cast.

          Man, *everything* was better than X3. Plan 9 From Outer Space was better than X3. *sigh*
          They’ve gotten better, but some of those covers are truly *bad* so let’s hope that the last two weren’t just temporary corrections in a downward dip.

      I’m with you here. First class was pretty damn fantastic for me (other than an underutilized Darwin, and a few bad practical effects on the costumes for mystique and azrael).

      My only problems with the wolverine was it packed too many villains and plots in which really rushed act 3 and made it too cluttered. However I found the film immensely entertaining and I loved the action and brutality.

      The new film has me skeptical, only because I hate most of the costumes but otherwise I’m more than willing to give it a fair shake. They earned my trust back
