Quicksilver, the breakout star of X-Men: Days of Future Past, is revving up for another outing in its sequel, and possibly even a film of his own.
Franchise veteran Brian Smrz, who served as second-unit director on such films X-Men Origins: Wolverine, First Classand Days of Future Past, confirmed to Newsarama that we’ll see more of Evan Peters’ speedster in X-Men: Apocalypse.
“There will be another Quicksilver scene, which I’m looking forward to; that’ll be fun,” he said. “Other than that, I can’t really say much – I’m looking forward to working with the cast and crew again. I’ve worked with Hugh Jackman four times before this, and I love the younger cast who’s already great to work with as well.”
But then Smrz went on to say he’s been taking a lot of meetings about directing opportunities. “We talked about Quicksilver before,” he said. “I’d love to do a Quicksilver as a solo film because there’s a lot to enjoy with that character. But I’m not geared just towards superhero movies; for me it’s about great main characters, and finding movies that have that.”
Smrz’s next bug screen offering, Terminator: Genisys, hits theaters on July 1, 2015 followed by X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, 2016.
