Vaughn Would've Had Juggernaut Instead of Quicksilver in 'X-Men: DoFP'

You may recall that Matthew Vaughn was scheduled to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. Ultimately, he opted out to go work on Kingsman: The Secret Service, allowing Bryan Singer to return to the director's chair for the series he helped launch. In a chat with Empire, where he was promoting Kingsman, the topic of Days of Future Past came up- namely the Quicksilver scene.

New TV Spot for 'Furious 7'

James Wan's Furious 7 is moving full speed ahead towards its April 3 premiere. As such, the production has a brand new TV spot to get people excited for the latest film in the Fast & Furious franchise.

The tagline, though, seems a tad ill-fitting when you consider that the this probably isn't the finale of the series. 

So what do you think? Will you be joining the gang for one last ride with Walker? What are the chances that Furious 7 is the end?
