So as some of you may know, Quicksilver is going to be featuring in [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942) (DOFP) and in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) (Avengers 2). Sadly this is not a crossover, in fact there are two different actors who will be playing Quicksilver. Yes, it is very odd that both franchises thought "lets put Quicksilver in our next film", but hey, now we get to compare the two and vote on who will be better! First lets compare them...

Evan Peters in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Looking at him in the image above you may think, "whats up with his costume?" ITS SET IN THE 70s! We don't actually know if he'll eventually get a real superhero suit or not, but at least he has a Pink Floyd shirt on! In the trailer we see him do some badass fast stuff and in the picture above we can see he taped up some guy, which in my opinion is going to be an awesome part of the movie to watch!

The image above is an unedited image from the Avengers film, so we need to keep in mind that something about his appearance may change between now and when [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) Avengers 2 comes out. We don't know too much about The Avenger's Quicksilver yet, as there hasn't been any trailers yet, just some leaked images, so we can't really compare what they can do, but we can compare how he looks. Comparing costumes, I must say that Aaron's seems more suitable than Even's to wear for high speed running. Although it doesn't really scream "I'm a badass super fast superhero!" Fingers crossed he gets an upgrade! This Quicksilver also looks older than X-MEN's Quicksilver (age wise).

Fun fact though, Evan Peters and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were in Kick-Ass together! Aaron Taylor-Johnson was Dave Lizewski AKA, Kick-Ass, where as Evan Peters was his friend Todd... Not even a superhero... Just his geeky friend Todd...

So the question is,


Which Quicksilver is going to be more Kick-Ass and give the best performance?

Thank-you for reading. First and hopefully not last post on Moviepilot!
