Announced by director Bryan Singer via his official Twitter Page, Evan Peters has been cast to play Pietro Maximoff/ Quicksilver in the next X-Men movie - X-Men: Days Of Future Past!
The news comes hot in the heels of Avengers movie director Joss Whedon's confirmation that Quicksilver and his sister Wanda Maximoff/ The Scarlet Witch are going to be included in The Avengers 2... And that means two versions of the same character will be in both movies!
Here's Bryan Singer's official tweet for the confirm:
Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.
