(CBR) Quicksilver, the breakout star of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” is revving up for another outing in its sequel, and possibly even a film of his own.
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.
