The brother-sister combo are the only characters at present that can be used in both Disney/Marvel Studios’ pictures and also in 20th Century Fox’s Marvel films. With that in mind, beforeAVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is here, the character of Quicksilver will appear in Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, where he’ll be played by AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Evan Peters.


AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is currently planned for a 1st May, 2015 release.
