The Pentagon kitchen scene featuring Quicksilver is undeniably one of the best scenes of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ and fans are very curious to know how the team is going to top that memorable moment in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ In a recent interview with Quicksilver actor Even Peters, MTV news asked just that question to the young actor, to which he replied with the following:
“Well, yeah, it’s always difficult to try to top something like that..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. The scope of it — with the end of the world and Apocalypse coming — is going to be a very large, epic ’X-Men’ film.”
Since this film will have Quicksilver working with more of the X-Men and their allies, including Jennifer Lawrence, Peters was asked his thoughts on working with the Academy Award winning actress:
“She’s great. All the cast is great…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.”
Especially after having seen the MCU’s interpretation of the Quicksilver character, there is even more pressure on Brian Singer and company to deliver on the beloved character, though at this point it would be foolish to bet against Singer’s ability to entertain us with the ‘X-Men’ movies. Here’s hoping Quicksilver’s next appearance will be able to top what we saw in ‘Days of Future Past,’ and help propel ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ into one of the better films coming out in 2016.
