It’s typical to have a couple new mutants show their faces in an upcoming X-Men film, but the one that has people turning heads right now is Quicksilver. The lightning fast mutant is confirmed to be one of many popping up in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The only thing X-Men fans may not like about this reveal is his outfit.
From the looks of the picture above, it appears as if Quicksilver (Evan Peters) busted Magneto (Michael Fassbender) out of jail, which is kind of cute in a way. You have the son bailing out the father, but what’s going on with the snow-filled foreground? Maybe they ran into Storm, but then that wouldn’t make sense considering that they’re technically in the past if Magneto and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) look so young.
Here’s hoping the outfit that Quicksilver is wearing in the picture below is nothing more than just regular clothes, not his official outfit. If it is his official costume, then it looks more or less like some abysmal shiny get-up that you would find in stores back in the late 90s/early 2000, complete with what appears to be goggles. At the same time fans will probably be relieved to see that Quicksilver isn’t wearing an awful black one-piece getup. Bryan Singer has a knack for drowning all of the X-Men characters in shades of black.
And I do hope that Badass Digest is right in saying that Quicksilver is going to have more than a cameo in the movie. It’ll be interesting to see how they work him into the overall crazy story line.
Which new mutant are you looking forward to seeing in X-Men: Days of Future Past?
