Ask anyone their thoughts on X-Men: Days of Future Past, and chances are they will tell you their favourite scene was the astonishing Quicksilver moment.
The scene saw Evan Peters steal the film from everyone during the prison breakout of Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and while I will happily admit that the entire film was superb, Quicksilver’s particular scene had me smiling from ear to ear for the entirety of the jaw-dropping effects heavy minute of brilliance.

If you are excited about X-Men: Apocalypse, then Peters himself has just given fans an even bigger reason to be excited. The Quicksilver actor says that an even bigger and somehow better scene will be included in the biggest X-Men film yet.
During an interview with MTV, Peters said:
“This year we’re working on something that’s bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I’m really excited to see it all cut together, and I’m excited for people to see it, too. I think it’s going to be a really fun sequence in what is going to be a massive X-Men movie”
X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer, and the cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Olivia Munn, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
Fox will release the film on May 27, 2016.
Here’s how Marvel.com describe the Apocalypse story:
In the harsh, unforgiving desert of ancient Egypt, ruled by Rama-Tut, a band of nomadic raiders found an infant, gray-skinned and freakish in appearance, abandoned by the settlers of Akkaba. The nomads took the child for their own, giving him the name En Sabah Nur, “The First One,” and teaching him to be “strong” in order to survive the desert as a child.
In recent years, Apocalypse was somehow awakened by the arrival of Cyclops’ son from the future, Cable. Apocalypse made another move against Cyclops and his team, X-Factor, by pitting them against a team of his own creation, the Alliance of Evil. Although he never used his Alliance again, Apocalypse soon formed the Horsemen of Apocalypse to plague humankind, when his ideas to “cull” humanity in order for the rise of mutant supremacy were beginning.
