Here's a little mud in your eye "The Avengers 2" -- Evan Peters is going to play Quicksilver in 'Future Past.' Why? Because we're sure it's integral to the story and has nothing to do with Fox wanting to lay claim to the character since it was confirmed he appears in Joss Whedon's sequel script along with sibling hero Scarlet Witch. It's all pretty petty and dumb and frankly, adds another unnecessary layer to this Dagwood sandwich of a movie. Oh, in case it matters Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") landed the role.
"How can they do that!?" nerds may be crying and asking. Well, both Marvel and Fox have rights to use it some how, though the ball will now be in Whedon's court as to whether or not he carries on, or ditches Quicksilver since it's now being utilized elsewhere. That being said, Whedon's draft was likely to change anyway given it's still unclear who exactly is returning and in what capacity for "The Avengers 2" as negotiations are ongoing. And remember, early drafts of "The Avengers" had The Wasp before being replaced by Black Widow.
All told, the superhero wars in Hollywood are getting pretty silly. We'll see what makes it into this movie on July 18, 2014.
