With X-Men: Days of Future Past merging the all-star casts of both the original X-Men franchise and X-Men: First Class, many were surprised that the biggest scene-stealer was a brand new character, Evan Peters' Quicksilver. We reported earlier this month that the character may be utilized in a potential X-Men TV series, but now we have word that he will return in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Newsarama recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past second unit director Brian Smrz, who revealed he will start storyboarding the film this year, while teasing that there will be another Quicksilver scene.
"They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I'll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it'll be full-time. Well, there will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to; that'll be fun. Other than that, I can't really say much - I'm looking forward to working with the cast and crew again. I've worked with Hugh Jackman four times before this, and I love the younger cast who's already great to work with as well."
Brian Smrz, who directed most of the Quicksilver kitchen sequence in X-Men: Days of Future Past, suggested that he wants to make a stand alone Quicksilver movie.
"We talked about Quicksilver before, I'd love to do a Quicksilver as a solo film because there's a lot to enjoy with that character. But I'm not geared just towards superhero movies; for me it's about great main characters, and finding movies that have that."
Would you want to see a stand-alone Quicksilver movie? 20th Century Fox hasn't announced any plans for a spin-off yet, but given the character's rising popularity, it may not be out of the question. Chime in with your thoughts below.
