Evan Peters who will be reprising his role as the mutant Quicksilver in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse recently filled in details of his character’s storyline.
The 28-year-old actor was interviewed by Details for his ongoing project, the macabre anthology “American Horror Story: Hotel.” Peters was more than happy to provide details of his portrayal of the “Speedster” when queries about the Bryan Singer movie turned up in the interview.
“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,” the actor revealed.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which was shown in 2014, was hardly an extensive screen time for the actor who then portrayed a juvenile Quicksilver. However, the scene in which Quicksilver speeds his way in a room jam-packed with police officers gave an astonishing impression of his amazing powers as everything stood still.
The sequel also gives Peters more maturity as mentioned in Huffington Post especially in his quest to seek out his real father, of which comic book fans know as Magneto. An age-old Apocalypse will make his first appearance as he tries to win “The Master of Magnetism” to their side. It has also been mentioned the Peters will once more have a “special effects sequence” to showcase his ability which is said to be much better than the previous output.
Collider gave a synopsis of the movie which makes it known that the main antagonist of the movie is an immortal and has stockpiled through the ages the powers of many other mutants. Apocalypse’s reawakening in the present day world makes him cynical as he forms his own band of mutants.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. It stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Oscar Isaac among others.
