Ever since Evan Peters (American Horror Story) joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past in May, fans have been wondering what his version of Quicksilver will look like. While we saw production photos of the actor during which director Bryan Singer had to utilize an incredibly bright set, because they were shooting Quicksilver's scenes at an astonishing 3600 frames per second, today we get our first official look at the silver-haired character, who is pictured alongside Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Is it just us, or does he look a little like Billy Corgan in the midst of his Smashing Pumpkins Late 90s heyday (maybe that's where the pick him up in this time travel-centric sory?) In addition, we also have another photo from Entertainment Weekly, featuring Wolverine and Beast (Nicholas Hoult). Check out the photos, then read on for more details from director Bryan Singer.
While X-Men: Days of Future Past is considered to be a sequel to 2011's X-Men: First Class, some think it's actually a reboot. Bryan Singer believes that it's neither a traditional reboot or a sequel, coining his own term for the film.
"It's not a reboot because there's some of the same characters and same actors. But it's also not a conventional sequel. I call it an inbetweequel."
The filmmaker also teased that the stakes are greater than ever.
"These are very big emotional stakes as well as, you know, cool giant robots and superpowers."
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23rd, 2014 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
