Evan Peters Says Quicksilver Will Have White Hair And He Doesn’t Have Scenes With Ian McKellen
Next summer, Bryan Singer will be bringing us the latest installment in the X-Men franchise. He’s had quite the task as he will be bringing together to casts from his original films, including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin and Daniel Cudmore, as well as the cast from Matthew Vaughn’s prequel X-Men: First Class, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till and Nicholas Hoult. As the name suggests, they will be using the famed story line from the comics, which involves a bit of time travel. The are a few new additions to the cast, including the always impressive Peter Dinklage and up-and-comer Evan Peters, who will be playing Fox’s version of Quicksilver. A while back, we got a small teaser image of the character, but it didn’t reveal much. But today, we have a bit more news on the character and it will please a lot of the X-Men fans.
Speaking with IO9, the young actor reveals that the speedster will include his most iconic feature: silver hair. The pic we first saw did not show this, so it’s possible that it’s a feature that will show up as a part of the story. He was also asked what it was like to shoot scenes with Sir Ian McKellen, who, as we know, plays Magneto. In the comics, Magneto is the father of Quicksilver, but it’s been unknown as to whether they’d address this in the film. Peters had an interesting reply.
No, I worked with Michael Fassbender. And he’s awesome. He’s amazing to work with. I worked with him and Hugh [Jackman] and James [McAvoy]. And… I won’t say any more. I worked with all of them. They are awesome. Seriously, the nicest people in the world, couldn’t have been more welcoming.
We knew that his character would be set in the 70’s rather than with the newer crew in the future. Could this mean that they will indeed have Quicksilver play the role fo Magneto’s son? It’s hard to tell, but as a fan, I really do hope that’s the case. Peters goes on to discuss the use of the 3600 frame-per-second cameras, which sound incredible. If you’ll remember, Singer gave us a stunning sequence of film involving Nightcrawler in X2 the last time he was at the helm of an X-Men film and if what Peters is describing actually goes down, we could be in for a real treat.
X-Me: Days of Future Past is slated to hit theaters next May. I’m hoping to see an official trailer soon, even if it’s an HD version of the trailer that leaked from San Diego Comic Con earlier this year. Be sure to check out the whole interview by clicking the link below, it’s worth the read!
