(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, »

The new teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron features the first look at James Spader's titular robo-baddie, along with an extended peek into the bleak terrors awaiting Earth's Mightiest Heroes in their second superteam adventure. Among the many things on display: The arrival of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, not to be confused with the Quicksilver who appeared in this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past; the long-awaited appearance of Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor, which is sort of like Iron Man's regular armor except gigantic; the presence of Andy Serkis as a character who appears to be a non-performance-captured human being; and, »

Quicksilver Teased for X-Men: Apocalypse and Perhaps a Solo Film. Actor Evan Peter’s Quicksilver on X-Men: Days of Future Past became a fan favorite after the film released.

The long-awaited trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is out! If you've managed to tear yourself away long enough to visit this page, you're probably wondering what we spotted. Well, we hope so, else it'd make this article a bit odd. Nonetheless, let's press on...
The Avengers Strike Back
Maybe it's just the trailer, but there's a distinct feeling that Avengers 2 is going to put our favourite characters through the wringer. They spend as much time fighting each other in this trailer than they do fighting anyone else. We already know it's the middle of a trilogy, so it's hard not to instantly compare it to that other darker, mid-trilogy film: Back to the Future Part II (a film we've no shortage of love for, as we explored here).
Both are »
One of the highlights of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" was a short scene featuring Quicksilver (Evan Peters) showing off his super ability. And now comes word from second unit director Brian Smrz that there are big plans for the character. Smrz, who was heavily involved with the Quicksilver scene said that he'll soon return for "X-Men: Apocalypse," which will have another creative scene featuring the superhero. "They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff," he explained. "I'll be working on the next 'X-Men' for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it'll be full-time... There will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to. That'll be fun." Smrs went on to say that there are even talks of giving Quicksilver his own movie. "We talked about Quicksilver before," he added. "I'd love to do a Quicksilver as a »

20th Century Fox might be considering a Quicksilver solo film.
"We talked about Quicksilver before, I'd love to do Quicksilver as a solo film because there's a lot to enjoy with that character," the stuntman-turned-filmmaker told Newsarama about his potential directing projects.
He also promised that the character would return in follow-up film X-Men Apocalypse for another slowed-down-time scene.
From the sinister Ultron to the amazing Hulkbuster armor, this 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' trailer is incredibly revealing.
In a move that is likely to set a bad precedent, Marvel Studios released their extended teaser/trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron a whole week earlier than planned after a low-res version leaked online early Wednesday.
According to Deadline, acting quickly, and wanting their fans to get a good, solid look at the film's massive explosions, Marvel released this incredibly exciting sneak peek.

Oh wow, this movie looks amazing. Dark, somewhat bleak and a little nihilistic, but amazing.
In this harrowing sequel, Sheild has been destroyed and the Avengers are getting worn out from all this "constantly saving the whole world" business. So, in a stroke of genius, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) restarts an old peacekeeping intuitive »
Well, this'll cheer Marvel up. It's little secret that there was a bit of behind the scenes unhappiness when it was revealed that Bryan Singer was bringing the character of Quicksilver into X-Men: Days Of Future Past. After all, Marvel's also using the character in next year's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. We're going to have two slightly different takes on Quicksilver in two different film franchises.
And he must have gone down well, becase it's now been revealed that Peters will be reprising the role of Quicksilver in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.
Bryan Singer is back to direct the next X-Men film, »
While the sexual-assault allegations against Bryan Singer dominated headlines this year, he's ending 2014 on a happier note: The X-Men: Days of Future Past director is expecting his first child with his best friend of 25 years, Queer As Folk actress Michelle Clunie. "Mother and father are both very excited about the upcoming birth and look forward to co-parenting the child together. The pair have been planning this baby for years and have been trying for the last two," Singer's representative said in a statement. »

(Cbr) In case you haven’t noticed, people like watching television shows and movies based on comic books. This fall has been particularly exceptional television adaptations: "The Walking Dead" season premiere pulled in more than 17 million viewers, while more than 8 million watched the first episode "Gotham," making it Fox’s best fall drama debut in 14 years. More than 6 million raced to see "The Flash" pilot, giving The CW its highest ratings ever. About 5 million are regularly tuning in for "Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and nearly 3 million for the third season of "Arrow." It’s not limited to live-action series, either: 2 million people watch "Teen Titans Go!," and more than 1 million tune in to "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on Nickelodeon. On the big screen, all four feature films starring Marvel characters — "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »

After stealing the show in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," Evan Peters' Quicksilver is unsurprisingly getting some more screen time. Second unit director Brian Smrz tells Newsarama that another sequence with the character is planned for "X-Men: Apocalypse":
"They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I’ll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it’ll be full-time... There will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to. That'll be fun."
Smrz played a key part in shooting the Quicksilver sequence in 'Days' and even suggests a solo film about the character is something he'd love to see: "We talked about Quicksilver before. I'd love to do a Quicksilver as a solo film because there's a lot to enjoy with that character."
Filming on "X-Men: Apocalypse" begins in April. »

After knocking it out of the park this summer with X-Men: Days of Future Past, all eyes are on director Bryan Singer, who has a lot to live up to with the 2016 sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. Described as a sort of 1980’s disaster film, Apocalypse will conclude the First Class trilogy and, by all accounts, sounds like the biggest X-Men film yet.
One easy way Singer can win some immediate fan goodwill is by bringing back Evan Peters as Quicksilver, the headphone-wearing speedster who stole the show in Days of Future Past despite some extremely negative reactions to early marketing material. We’ve heard rumors that Peters would appear in Apocalypse, but now it’s been made official thanks to former stuntman Brian Smrz, who served as second unit director on Dofp and was responsible for much of Quicksilver’s jaw-dropping scene in the Pentagon kitchen.

Two high-profile new releases, both distributed by 20th Century Fox, took the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ending Oct. 19.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the latest installment in the superhero franchise that bagged nearly $234 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
And DreamWorks Animation’s “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” an animated feature based on two characters from the 1960s cartoon series “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,” rode its $111.5 million box office gross to a No. 2 debut, also on both charts.

It didn't take long after the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past for the franchise filmmakers to realize that they would need to give Evan Peters' Quicksilver a much bigger role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Audiences truly fell in love with the wacky, speedy mutant this past summer, and the sequence where he helps Magneto break out of the Pentagon is considered by many to be the best in the film. It will certainly be hard to top in the sequel, but that's not stopping the braintrust behind the franchise from trying. In an interview with Newsarama, X-Men: Days of Future Past second unit director Brian Smrz has revealed that the franchise is already working on a way to give the spotlight to Quicksilver once again in X-Men: Apocalypse. Revealing in the conversation that he was the one who shot most of the famed hyperspeed Quicksilver sequence »
You know that awesome Quicksilver prison break scene that we all loved from X-Men: Days of Future Past? Well, second unit director Brian Smrz revealed in an interview with Newsarama that it was he who did most of the work on bringing that scene to life instead of director Bryan Singer. He also throws out a few hints about X-Men: Apocalypse and a possible solo movie for Quicksilver. Here's what he said about working on the prison break scene:
"Probably the most memorable part of the film was getting the chance to work closely with almost all of the main cast in various scenes. As far as a particular scene that sticks out the most, I’d say the kitchen sequence with Quicksilver. I ended up doing a lot of that," he revealed before adding, "I did most of it, to be honest. I have a great relationship with Bryan Singer, »

With X-Men: Days of Future Past merging the all-star casts of both the original X-Men franchise and X-Men: First Class, many were surprised that the biggest scene-stealer was a brand new character, Evan Peters' Quicksilver. We reported earlier this month that the character may be utilized in a potential X-Men TV series, but now we have word that he will return in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Newsarama recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past second unit director Brian Smrz, who revealed he will start storyboarding the film this year, while teasing that there will be another Quicksilver scene.
"They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I'll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it'll be full-time. Well, there will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to; that'll be fun. Other than that, »
Even people who didn’t like X-Men: Days of Future Past love the Quicksilver scene.

If you're the world's biggest fan of X-Men: Days of Future Past, you may want to look away, as this trailer is going to point out some significant flaws in your beloved film: While Guardians of the Galaxy will probably be remembered as the best comic book film of summer 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past was no slouch at the box office. Earning over $700 million, the film received critical acclaimed by audiences. X-Men fans especially appreciated it for "resetting" the convoluted timeline and erasing certain events from the series. However, just because it set the franchise on a new path doesn.t mean that it.s safe from the folks at Screen Junkies, who have finally given the film the Honest Trailer treatment. Right off the bat, the guys point out that while X-MenDays of Future Past.s classification as a prequel And sequel may be confusing, it does its »
Patrick Stewart will be exploring his dark side soon as he has just been cast as a white supremacist in The Green Room. Jeremy Saulnier, whose last film was Blue Ruin (2014), will write and direct the film.
