Director Bryan Singer is back to the tweeting of the set photos from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Today, he’s got one of the Maximoff household where apparently people still put their names on their mailboxes instead of numbers like everyone else in America. Quaintness aside, comic book fans know that the name references Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a Quicksilver, who will be played by Evan Peters (American Horror Story). Quicksilver, whose mutant ability is super-speed, is just one of many mutants in the picture, but I’m sticking to the belief that most of these roles are just cameos. Even something where they have Quicksilver’s house could just be part of a montage like Quicksilver going to get his mail, and then a sentinel steps on him. My larger point: a lot of these mutants are going to “die” because that’s the apocalyptic future from the source material. I don’t know if Quicksilver is fated to perish in the movie, but I don’t think this cast is as big as we’ve been led to believe.
Hit the jump to check out the set photo.
