Two links related to that other super-speedster who recently made a live-action debut.
WIRED: Flash vs. Quicksilver. A physics professor looks at the feats we see performed in X-Men: Days of Future Past (and I’m sure we can all agree: that scene was awesome!) and the first trailer for the Flash TV show, and tries to calculate just how fast each of them is moving. In the comics, of course, the Flash is much faster, but in these particular adaptations…well, check it out.
The Quicksilver of Two Worlds: ComicsAlliance recounts the history of Pietro Maximoff and how “a D-list speedster” became the object of a Hollywood turf battle.
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.
There’s still no word on when the Flash may be racing onto the big screen, but we now know that another comic book speedster — Marvel’s Quicksilver — will be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Evan Peters (American Horror Story) has been cast as the son of Magneto, as reported by CBR.
Update: Marvel and Fox are reportedly in a “legally-negotiated stand-off” over the character at this time. According to HitFix, Fox can’t mention the Avengers in X-Men: DoFP, and Marvel Studios can’t call him a mutant or mention Magneto in Avengers 2.
