Evan Peters to Play Quicksilver in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Production is currently underway on the film

“American Horror Story” thesp Evan Peters has been tapped as Quicksilver in Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

Bryan Singer will direct, with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence returning. Also, Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman are reprising their roles as Prof. X and Wolverine.

“Days of Future Past” is based on the 1981 story in the Marvel comic “Uncanny X-Men” and will include characters from the 1960s first class as well as future versions of the original characters.

The CAA-repped Peters can be seen next in the indie “Truck Stop” with Juno Temple.

Singer has Tweeted updates and castings throughout the films production, and did so again with Peters news:

What makes this announcement interesting is that “Avengers” helmer Joss Whedon recently announced that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would appear in “Avengers 2.” “X-Men” rights are controlled by Fox and “The Avengers” goes through Disney, so its unknown whether the two films’ universes will cross-over and whether Whedon will also use Peters for “Avengers 2.”

Do you think Peters is a good choice for Quicksilver? Should Whedon keep him for “Avengers 2”?
