One of the more popular elements of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past was the introduction of Quicksilver, played by American Horror Story star Evan Peters. While doing press for his upcoming thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Evan Peters confirmed that he will return as Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse, although he isn't quite sure what's in store for his character yet. Here's what he had to say below:
"I think so, yes. I assume it as well, but I don't know what I'm supposed to say and not supposed to say. I haven't seen a script."
When asked if his schedule has been worked out yet, and when he will start production, the actor remained tight-lipped.
"No. We'll see. I think... I don't know what I can say and what I can't say. All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet."
Principal photography is slated to begin this April in Montreal, where X-Men: Days of Future Past was shot. The story is set in 1983, and will close out the trilogy started by 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued by X-Men: Days of Future Past. The actor will be joined by James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Ian McKellen (old Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast), along with new cast members Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Tye Sheridan (Cyclops).
There have been reports that Quicksilver's sister Scarlet Witch will also be featured in X-Men: Apocalypse, but that has not been confirmed and it isn't known if the role has even been cast yet. Other characters such as Psylocke and Cable have also been rumored to appear, and hopefully we'll get confirmation on these new characters as we get closer to a production start.
