Evan Peters is returning to the X-Men Universe.
The actor will reprise his role as the speedy mutant Quicksilver for X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
A cocky and overly confident kleptomaniac, Quicksilver is Peter Maximoff. First debuting within the X-Men film universe in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, this fleet-footed mutant is known for his cheeky sense of humor and impatient demeanour. He ended up becoming good friends with Wolverine and even agreed to help break Magneto, his biological father, out of prison.
Peters joins a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Additionally, Lamar Johnson has also recently joined the cast of the film in an unspecified role.
Production on the film kicks off this week in Montréal.
Simon Kinberg is directing X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which hits theatres on November 2nd, 2018.
