We saw him died during Avengers: Age of Ultron when he tried to protect Clint Barton a.k.a. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and a child from the devastating gunshot. But in the upcoming X-Men movie, the ninth installment for the X-Men series, Quicksilver’s back, and running faster than ever!
“It’s the biggest X-Men film. It’s about the apocalypse, so the scope of the film is huge,” Evan Peters told Details.com, who will reprise his role as Pietro Maximoff a.k.a. Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson portrays the role in the Avengers movie).
Peters, who also plays different roles in TV series American Horror Story, was asked whether the latest X-men film can be characterized as a zombie apocalypse movie as well (the current TV show trend),“Ha! No, it’s not. Although that would be amazing if Apocalypse [the evil mutant] brought back the dead to help him take over the earth. I love zombies; I can’t get enough.”
But he goes on to tell what his goal will be come X-Men: Apocalypse and how he managed to get on board X-Men’s goal to save the world, “the story is that my character is searching for his father and wants to find him. It starts there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole Apocalypse madness: He tries to stop him from destroying the world.”
X-Men: Apocalypse Official Synopsis
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.
As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit the cinemas May 27, 2016.
