Marvel Movies: Quicksilver to appear in both Avengers 2 and X-Men: Days Of Future Past

It's fast and breaking news on the Marvel Movies front literally, as it looks like the character of Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, won't be appearing in just one Marvel film... But two!

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:

With Marvel Studios/ Walt Disney Pictures owning the rights to Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the characters included in their Marvel Cinematic Universe, 20th Century Fox also has claim to characters under their X-Men franchise, and Quicksilver belongs to both since he has ties to The Avengers and X-Men families, with the latter reason being he is a member of the team and Magneto's son as well. Either way, this is good news considering that the character is a fan favorite, and it'll be interesting to see how his portrayal will go in Days Of Future Past come next year and The Avengers 2 in 2015!

X-Men: Days Of Future Past sees release on July 18, 2014, while The Avengers 2 is set for May 1, 2015!
