who along with his sister Scarlet Witch
will be joining the team in the upcoming Avengers
sequel is also going to be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past
, which is currently filming!
Director Bryan Singer
who quickly became a social media mastermind has revealed, broke the news via his Twitter feed
that Evan Peters
will be joining the film as Quiksilver, the super-fast son of Magneto.
Fox would get to use Quicksilver as a younger character, while Marvel Studios could use an older, more adult version.
However, both studios possess the right to include Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in their feature films, but Marvel doesn’t have the rights to X-Men
so they can’t mention the fact that Magneto is Quicksilver’s father, and Fox doesn’t have the rights to The Avengers
so they can’t refer to the fact that sparks flying between Quicksilver and Tony Stark.

opens on July 18th, 2014, and The Avengers 2
, meanwhile, is scheduled for release on May 1st, 2015.
