Expect more Quicksilver in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' - and maybe even a solo film?
Franchise veteran Brian Smrz, who served as second-unit director on such films "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "First Class" and "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 big screen offering, "Terminator: Genisys," hits theaters on July 1, 2015 followed by "X-Men: Apocalypse" on May 27, 2016.
