One of the most controversial decisions made in X-Men: Days of Future Past was the inclusion of Quicksilver. Not only did fans immediately rip the character’s quirky costume, but Avengers followers also complained that Evan Peters’ performance wouldn’t be able to match up to Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s performance as the same character in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“The plan was to use him in the next X-Men movie and have him expand his part and grow into the franchise” Kinberg told IGN. “That was the thought. But now people have seen the movie and he’s one of the most beloved things in the film universally, there’s no question that he’s going to be a big part of the next movie.”
While that news may infuriate fans now, just wait until you see Quicksilver in action in Days of Future Past. His screen time may be brief, but he provides the film with one of the best comic book movie moments of the past five years.
You’ll get to see it for yourself when X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23.
