First Look at Quicksilver in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' [Update]

Check out how Evan Peters looks as the speedster.

Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is loaded with mutants and so far we've had a decent look at many of them. However, we've yet to see Quicksilver and this character is the subject of a lot of attention because he's also being used over in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Naturally, both will be presented differently and portrayed by different actors on the big screen, and in Fox's case, Evan Peters landed the roll. So, what's he look like in the movie? Check it out below.

Viners, do you like this practical look or would you prefer something closer to his costume in the comics? Keep in mind, this is just one still, so there's no guarantee this is his "official costume" in the film.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.

Aaaaannnd.......Horrible!

Why is the characters important enough to have him portrayed by two different actors?

I understand the legal issues but I don't see why both have to use him and ruin the cinematic portrayal of the character.

Oh wow.. that looks extremely lame

Is that a silver jacket?

@themanintheshoe: Considering that Agents of SHIELD has already said that telepaths don't exist, I don't think trying to view the Marvel and Fox films as even remotely compatible is worthwhile.

Which is worse? Saying that two different people are Quicksilver, or saying that people like Xavier are either nonexistent or have never been detected by SHIELD?

Still better than Harry Goblin in ASM2

It looks like everyday wear, so I can't really pass much judgement yet.

@TheManInTheShoe Singer was planning to use Quicksilver before Whedon was, Marvel just announced that he was appearing in Avengers before Singer announce he was going to be in DOFP. His role in X-Men is supposedly not very big (think Darwin from First Class) and he's probably serving as Magneto's son in DOFP. As far as anyone can tell, it's completely coincidental that both guys wanted to use that character. Singer's said that Quicksilver is integral to the plot of this movie, and he's obviously going to be an Avenger, so I'd just try to think often as two characters.

That looks so weird. Matthew Vaughn please come back!

@akbogert: I think they're being proven wrong in the show though. Remember super powered people are a brand new thing in that world and there has been no DOCUMENTED telepaths. That doesn't mean they don't exist just that SHIELDs never came across them. Telepaths are pretty good at hiding themselves

WOW. That sucks on ice!

Posted by akbogert

@cobra88king8: The problem with that is that both universes have made date-based claims. The X-Men have been operating for decades in Westchester, up to and including modern day. And the Avengers saved Manhattan in the modern day. The very fact that "super powered people are a brand new thing" there automatically makes the MCU irreconcilable with the Fox films.

I don't like it

I wish Marvel would get the rights back to X-men and recast everyone

At least Harry Goblin isn't forgettable....

Is that his hair, or is he wearing some kind of hat. Because if it's the former it's not blended well into his normal hair.

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Why are you pepole complaining? He's clearly in civvies.

Edited by Oscars94

I need to see him in action first.

The master of magnetism is there, people won't even notice Pietro.

What don't you like about Harry?

Edited by frogjitsu

Looks like good ol' Chuck gets the use of his legs back, only to loose them again by the time the first movies occur. Staying true the source material. I like it.

Edited by GothamRed

I wonder who that guy in the metal bars in the background is.

he's actually duct taped to the wall lmao

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Looks weird... shouldn't he have spiked hair?

Posted by longbowhunter

Wow...they really zeroed in on the silver part of Quicksilver. I like Evan Peters a lot though. I'm hoping he does the role justice.

Waaaiiiit a minute! How is Quicksilver back there with the 70s X-Men!? Wouldn't it make more sense for him to be in the future? Or did Eric knock up a girl when he was 14? It's just like when Havok was in First Class but he was too old to...oh sh*t.

Oh, you mean the same Xavier that can erase people's memories? And the same S.H.I.E.L.D. that has security levels way higher than any of Coulson's team?

Posted by Mr_Athrilla

Rumor going around that this version of Quicksilver isn't related to Magneto. But don't worry,I'm sure it's just a rumor. If Singer's portrayal of Cyclops, Iceman, and Rogue has taught me anything is that the man respects source material.

@punyparker: Yea I mean the hair is pretty emo and all but whats wrong with his apparel? even then I don't mind his hair.
