X-Men Days of Future Past, Wolverine, Magneto,

My Favorite Scene: X-Men Days of Future Past (2014) – Quicksilver to the Rescue

I have to eat crow on this.  I thought Quicksilver was shoehorned into this movie just to beat Disney in using him in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  I thought his look was stupid.  I flat out didn’t even want him in the movie.  Mmmmmmm.  Crow.

Evan Peters stole this movie.  His two scenes: both his introduction at his house and this scene were a combination of comic book cool and gleeful fun.  This scene, where he saves the day during the X-Men’s jailbreak of Magneto is probably my favorite scene in any film I’ve seen in 2014.  It’s brilliant.

There will be an extended cut of X-Men DOFP coming out sometime in 2015 and I will be very interested to see that version, because my main problem with the theatrical release was that it felt rushed.  I can only hope Peters will be back in X-Men: Apocalypse, but until then I’ll gladly watch this over and over again.
