Evan Peters’ Quicksilver became a highlight of last year’s critically acclaimed X-Men: Days Of Future Past and stole the show, leaving fans wanting more of the character. Well, we’re going to be seeing more of the speedster in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse and it looks like Bryan Singer and company are going to be giving the character an even bigger slow-mo sequence in the highly-anticipated sixth installment in the X-Men franchise. While speaking with Collider, Peters had the following to say about his appearance in the 2016 film and the slo-mo sequence that took a lengthy 22 days to complete.

Yeah, Quicksilver does his thing again, in the new film. It’s bigger, longer and more detailed. I think it’s an amazing sequence that they’ve put together. Just filming it, I was like, “Oh, my god!” I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It’s so cool to take that much time to make something like that really pop and really work. Knock on wood, I think it’s going to be a fun and enjoyable sequence for people to watch, with Quicksilver running around and doing his thing in slow-mo time. I hope people like it.

The Pentagon sequence from Days Of Future Past and the opening from X2 are still among some of the best comic book sequences on the big screen. From the sounds of things though, it looks like Bryan Singer might be out to top himself with this one. Guess we will have to wait and see what he’s got up his sleeve when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters next year. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
