The viral marketing for the DVD and Blu-ray release of X-Men: Days of Future Past continues today with another social media post from “Peter Maximoff” aka Quicksilver.  The character as played by Evan Peters was an undeniable highlight of the X-Men sequel earlier this year, and 20th Century Fox is capitalizing on his popularity with a series of viral videos that tease the home video release of Days of Future Past.  While I’m certainly looking forward to seeing the film again and thumbing through the extras, Fox has already announced that an extended cut of the movie will hit home video next summer.  The question then becomes, to double dip or not to double dip?

Quicksilver Runs to Social Media for the X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Blu-ray

I think many of us can agree that Quicksilver (Evan Peters) was one of the best and surprising aspects of X-Men: Days of Future Past.  20th Century Fox is now seizing on the character’s popularity by sending him on to social media.  Please don’t ask me why a character from the 1970s is on Instagram and Vine.  They don’t show his face in this “post” so I guess you could say it’s an adult Peter Maximoff making sure to Instagram and Vine his movements?  I will say Vine is probably the best medium for someone who does a lot with not much time.  Look for more updates from Evan Peters over the next week.

Hit the jump to check out the video.  X-Men: Days of Future Past will be available on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on October 14th.  Click here to pre-order.  The film is currently available to own on Digital HD.

The upcoming X-Men: Days of the Future Past has so much packed into it that it’s almost difficult to keep everything straight. Aside from having most of the cast from the 1970s-based X-Men: First Class present in the movie, this upcoming film, from previous X-director Bryan Singer, also includes members of the franchise’s present, such as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, and Ian Mckellen’s Magneto to name a few. Among these old favorites, the film will also be bursting with new mutants who have yet to see the cinematic X-verse.  Collider thought this would be the perfect opportunity to walk you through some of these characters and give you a crash course on the new mutants you’ll be seeing in Singer’s epic time travelling mutant extravaganza!  Hit the jump to make introductions.

The twin brother-sister superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have been likely contenders to join The Avengers 2 since April when Joss Whedon teased, “I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.”  Kevin Feige followed that even though the characters fall into a legal grey area (The characters are mutants, Magneto is their father, and Fox could have possession since they own X-Men), they would be available.  Today, Whedon has confirmed that the characters will be in The Avengers 2.

Kevin Feige Talks About That Additional AVENGERS Scene, the Status of ANT-MAN, and Who Owns QUICKSILVER and THE SCARLET WITCH

With less than a month before May 4 release date, the cast of The Avengers shot an additional scene last week.  That was probably never meant to be public information, but nobody other than Robert Downey Jr. has any control over what RDJ decides to announce at press conferences.  Marvel president Kevin Feige downplayed the importance of the additional shooting at the European premiere:

“I will tell you this: It was not a scene. It was not a scene. There’s little things. It’s been blown out of proportion. Which is fun, I like that things are blown out of proportion. Sometimes they’re true sometimes they’re not.” [Blogomatic 3000]

Okay, so it was not “a scene.”  But it was something that they couldn’t shoot with body doubles.  The myth of what happened that night is almost certainly better than the truth, so maybe it’s best we keep the mystery box shut.  As always, Feige is a wealth of information on all things Marvel, so hit the jump for his recent comments on the status of Ant-Man and who owns the rights to Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.
