Actor Evan Peters is playing Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past and today we have our first look of the actor in a new still.

Just days after Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon announced that the sibling-superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would be joining The Avengers sequel, director Bryan Singer announced that Evan Peters would be playing the same character in his film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Now we have our first look at Evans as Quicksilver, as well as a new look at Nicholas Hoult going beastmode. Check out the images below:

Back in April, Joss Whedon said, “these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, are a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.” Marvel president, Kevin Feige, went on to say that it could be difficult to use the characters, as they’re actually mutants, that were fathered by Magneto from X-Men. Of course, X-Men character rights are owned by Fox, but Quicksilver apparently fell into a “grey area.”

This allowed both Singer and Whedon to use the character in their respective films. Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be playing Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Whedon has let it be known that he will play a much larger role in his film.

It’ll be interesting to compare the two characters once both films hit theaters. The Avengers sequel will hit theaters in 2015, while X-Men: Days of Future Past will be in theaters May 23, 2014.

Bryan Singer recently stated that while there is a “great deal of humor, the overall tone is a bit darker than previous films, particularly because of the stakes.” We imagine a few deaths will take place in the film and possibly be reversed by the time travel aspects.

Let us know what you think of Evan Peters as Quicksilver.

X-Men: Days of Future Past’s release date is set for May 23, 2014. The film stars returning actors Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender. Also rejoining the X-Men franchise are Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, James Marsden, Ellen Page, and Hugh Jackman. Fan Favorite Peter Dinklage will be playing a major villain.

    It’s weird that Quicksilver will be in this movie but not Scarlet Witch…where is she exactly? I got really excited for a second though because I thought this was going to be of quicksilver from age of ultron. This is still exciting, just not as much..

      Well…if I’m not mistaken, Quicksilver had some minor time-travel powers for a little while, so maybe that’s why he’s in DoFP.

      I’m still waiting to find out if Rachel Summers will be significant to this film. She was the catalyst for the events of the DoFP arc in the ‘books. I’d hate to see her left out.

        I wish Kitty was the focus like the original comic too =/

    Silver jacket = quicksilver

    • Ultron

      haha pretty much. I’m not digging the long hair either. I’m definitely looking forward to Joss Whedon’s rendition of quicksilver more. I hope he keeps a silver lightning bolt on his costume though!

  • Ryan

    Forget the jacket, someone explain to me why Xavier is walking!

    • Wolverine

      Time….travel…..time…..travel…..

      Say it with me.

        This scenes in the film taking place in the past are taking place after the events of First Class (other photos have showed him in the same clothes while in a wheelchair with Wolverine also in the same clothes) so unless time travel is being used more frequently than once or twice in the film then its a valid question.

        • Jeremy

          It’s being used multiple times in the film.

    • Lee

      Xavier and Co. could also be in a someone’s mind or something, thus making the laws of reality obsolete in this scene.

  • Josh

    My reaction to Quicksilver: ehhhhh, could’ve been worse i suppose…
    My reaction to Beast: HOLYFUCKINGSHIT ROAR!

  • Jo

    I’m just hoping that Aaron Taylor-Johnson looks better than him in this… weird jacket thing

    I’m just meh about it. Don’t love it or hate it. I’ll wait to see it all come together on screen.

    I would just like to state a few things. Firstly the addition of Quicksilver to the X-Men movie came after Marvel announced they would use Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch for the next Avengers movie. Fox’s Quicksilver just looks like a petty attempt by Fox to remind everyone that they have dibs on the character as well. Secondly, I have very little faith in this Quicksilver since in most of the X-Men movies more screen time is give to Professor X, Magneto and Wolverine and everybody else gets forgotten. The other characters hardly get any dialogue. We don’t get to know them. It just comes across like a lack of direction when it comes to casting these actors and a waste of their time especially if they’re newcomers and looking for an opportunity to show their talent. I’m definitely looking more forward to Aaron Taylor Johnson’s Quicksilver.

      Agreed. It was confirmed via Bryan Singer that his Quicksilver is only part of one major sequence. Whedon’s got this.
