Quicksilver Will Return In “X-Men: Apocalypse”

Producer Simon Kinberg has revealed in an interview with Total Film that Evan Peters will returns as Quicksilver in “X-Men: Apocalypse”. The character, who first appears in this week’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” could also be joined by his sister Scarlet Witch:

“We talked about bringing Scarlet With into the mix for this film, and there was actually a little scene we shot that we ended up cutting from the movie that alluded to her. But it was a sort of interstitial scene that didn’t push the movie forward, and so it ended up being cut, like lots of bits and pieces in a movie that’s this complicated and with this many characters to follow. But he would absolutely be back for the next X-Men movie.”

Kinberg also discussed the “controversy” regarding Quicksilver’s appearance in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and how the character is also a part of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Age of Ultron”:

“It wasn’t something we anticipated, because we didn’t know they were using him in The Avengers movie. It got publicized weeks after we made the decision that we had done it, and then after that even, I think it was a little while before the controversy started in terms of them using him too.”
