Quicksilver Returns For X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX
Splashgarians (it’s a Game of Thrones reference, boosh), this is going to sound like something you already knew, but here we go anyway. Evan Peters will be returning as Quicksilver, along with everyone who has appeared in an X-Men film since First Class, for the next big screen outing. Not including the popular speedster would’ve made for an interesting move. But, we can expect another scene like they’ve done in the past two films where Quicksilver is moving through a world that is in slow motion. Ah, it’ll never get old.
Also, Lamar Johnson has been added to the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Johnson’s role has not been announced but he is one of the stars of the BAFTA Award-winning Canadian show The Next Step. I’m going to guess he’s playing one of the Shi’Ar. We need to start hearing more about the villains of our next Fox-verse film. I like Fox-verse more than XCU, plus it sounds like something you’d say with a bad taste in your mouth.
Dark Phoenix is bringing back the recent mainstays of the X-Men franchise — Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult — as well as reuniting the younger actors of Apocalypse — Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee — as it adapts a key storyline from the X-Men comics.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit theaters November 2, 2018.
