EMPIRE magazine is having a big cover reveal day showing 25 character covers in 24 hours from X-Men; Days of Future Past, the eagerly awaited period piece X-man movie set to open May 23. So far many of the reveals have been characters we’ve glimpsed before, but Evan Peters as Quicksilver has come in for some Twitter mocking.
To be fair, he really does look like someone I would have bumped into back at Click’n’Drag in 1996, but I hear the 90s are back and so is silver vinyl. And would a spandex suit with a lightning bolt on it look any better?
Luckily, everyone will get another chance at Quicksilver and he appears in the next Avengers movie, portrayed by Aaron Johnson!
And hey what about Havok’s non-costume? Buddy you gotta ress a little better to get taken seriously around here.
Here are the rest of the Empire covers thus far revealed. Keep checking the link for more all day.
