Guess who’s back? Back again?
Yes, it’s true: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Evan Peters is joining the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix as our favorite Marvel speedster, Quicksilver! Peters first joined the franchise in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, followed by last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and needless to say he stole the show on both occasions.
The film has also added Lamar Johnson, one of the stars of BAFTA Award-winning series The Next Step in an as of yet unnamed role. Along with Peters and Johnson, the Dark Phoenix cast includes Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender. It’s set to start production this week with a November 2nd, 2018 release date.
