Here is an interesting, if not legal bit of questioning. Bryan Singer tweeted over the Thursday that Evan Peters has been cast as Quicksilver in X-Men Days of Future Past.
The Tweet: “Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining#XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as#Quicksilver.”
What is interesting is that Joss Whedon has announced that the same character will be in Avengers 2 with his sister the Scarlet Witch.
This leads us to ask will how, legally, can the character be in a Fox (which has the rights to the X-Men) and also a Disney (who owns The Avengers) movie? Has an agreement finally be reached? Will this be the first crossover character? Ironically the character has been in both books for decades as he is the property of Marvel. So why all the hubbub any way? Oh yeah, money!
X-Men: Days of Future Past is slated to debut on July, 18, 2014.
The Avengers 2 is slated for May 2nd, 2015.
