The Quicksilver scene in the Pentagon during X-Men: Days of Future Past was widely regarded as the best part of the movie. And it certainly helped that Evan Peters looked like he was having a lot of fun while portraying the speedster mutant in his breakout moment.
Director Bryan Singer and the rest of his X-Men: Apocalypse creative team have a tall order if they want to outdo that Quicksilver scene in the new film. But according to Peters, they’ve done it!
“It’s always difficult to try to top something like that,” said Peters. “The special effects guys, man, they absolutely nailed that and did a fantastic job on it. This year we’re working on something that’s bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I’m really excited to see it all cut together, and I’m excited for people to see it, too. I think it’s going to be a really fun sequence in what is going to be a massive X-Men movie.”
Peters added that “the scope of it—with the end of the world and Apocalypse coming—is going to be a very large, epic ’X-Men’ film.”
While Days of Future Past briskly wrote Quicksilver out of the film, X-Men: Apocalypse will apparently rectify that by giving Peters a larger role this time. Peters also revealed that he will finally have scenes with Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique.
“[Jennifer Lawrence is] great. All the cast is great,” related Peters. “Everybody on set is just so nice, and so friendly and welcoming. We’re all this big family that’s stuck on this ginormous ship that is sailing slowly along. So I think everybody is incredibly nice, I’ll tell you that much.”
X-Men: Apocalypse will be released on May 27, 2016.
