A user on the SuperheroHype forums has managed to get their hands on a new X-Men: Days of Future Past image that gives us our first look at Evan Peters as Quicksilver.
Wow! Is it just me or does he look like an extra from an old Michael Jackson music video? Silver jacket and running shoes? Really?! Man, I’m massively looking forward to Days of Future Past but if this is the look for the Quicksilver character then I am definitely not a fan. Fingers crossed that this isn’t the final design or look of the character.
The Days of Future Past comic arc features an alternative future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels after a key senator was assassinated by a group of rogue mutants. Using time travel, the Kitty Pryde tries to warn the younger X-Men of what terror is to come so that they can stop the assassination and save the future. The film adaptation is going to have Wolverine be sent back in time by Kitty, mainly due to the audience’s love of Jackman’s Logan.
Forming quite the ensemble cast, the film sees James McAvoy as the younger Professor X, Patrick Stewart as the older Professor X, Michael Fassbender as the younger Magneto, Ian McKellen as the older Magneto, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Halle Berry as Storm, Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Daniel Cudmore as Colossus, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique. Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Omar Sy as Bishop, Fan Binbing as Blink, Lucas Till as Havok, Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask, Evan Jonigkeit as Toad, Booboo Stewart as Warpath, Adan Canto as Sunspot, and Josh Helman as a young William Stryker. There’s also strong reports that James Marsden will be returning as Cyclops.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on 23rd May, 2014.
