Drop off Some Mail for Quicksilver in New Set Photo from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     July 5, 2013


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.  The film also stars Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick StewartShawn Ashmore, Josh Helman, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar SyDaniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Halle BerryX-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.

    Agree with you, I do Matt. Really think the total screen time for some of these characters will be around a minute or 2 and in the apocalyptic future.

      No offence, MCP, but I really hope you’re both wrong, especially Goldberg…

      • MCP

        Yes, as do I. We shall see next year….

      Conversely, I hope you’re right. We don’t get to see enough superhero deaths in movies.

    Not only do I agree with the whole idea that most of the cast will be cameos I’m afraid the movie is gonna flat out suck. Even if a giant portion of the cast does end up as sentinel fodder that’s still a shit ton of mutants with little time to develop. I think people are getting wayyyyy too hyped because its Singer back in the seat and lots of familiar faces + popular storyline but you have to remember the dude hasn’t exactly had the most mind blowing track since X2 so….

    I feel like he posted this to piss off Joss Whedon. Quicksilver is one my favorite characters and I know he’ll most likely get his true snarky characterization right in Avengers 2.
