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.
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”?
