Arguably one of the best parts of the young X-Men series is none other than Evan Peters’s Quicksilver, and come on, what’s an X-Men prequel movie without Quicksilver anyways, right? Well its official now! Evan Peters is set to return to X-Men: Dark Phoenix in all his silver wearing, fast talking glory.
This news come right after hearing newcomer, Lamar Johnson, has been cast in the film as mystery character. It’s good hear ole Quicksilver will be returning to the big screen next year. As much as we love what Peters has brought to the role, it’ll be good to see some character growth as it’ll now be about 20 years since we first met him in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hopefully he finally comes clean to his father Magneto about being his son!
Peters will be starring alongside Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan and Lamar Johnson. Jessica Chastain is still in talks to play Lilandra, the Shi’ar Empire Queen.
