Quicksilver set to return for X-Men: Apocalypse

October 23rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

There’s no point in lying, as much as we loved Days of Future Past and we did, we loved it very much, it was Evan Peters’ Quicksilver that really made up love it – his scene in the kitchen remains one of the best single movie scenes in ages.

So the news that he’s returning is very, very welcome indeed.

Darkhorizons are reporting that second unit director Brian Smrz is saying his return is already being planned out: “They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I’ll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it’ll be full-time… There will be another Quicksilver scene, which I’m looking forward to. That’ll be fun.”

He also hints that we’re not the only ones who liked him and the studio are toying with more in the future: “We talked about Quicksilver before. I’d love to do a Quicksilver as a solo film because there’s a lot to enjoy with that character.”

X-Men: Apocalypse starts filming in April, 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
