Evan Peters Talks Quicksilver's Bigger Scene, Role in "X-Men: Apocalypse"

With all the new mutants joining the cast of Fox's "X-Men: Apocalypse," you have to wonder how much work the old team is going to get. One of the breakout mutants from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" was Evan Peters' Quicksilver. Fans hoping that the silver speedster doesn't get lost in the sea of new faces coming to the franchise needn't worry, as Peters himself recently told MTV his character is going bigger and better for the sequel.

"Well, yeah, it's always difficult to try to top something like that," he told MTV. "The special effects guys, man, they absolutely nailed that and did a fantastic job on it. This year we're working on something that's bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I'm really excited to see it all cut together, and I'm excited for people to see it, too. I think it's going to be a really fun sequence in what is going to be a massive X-Men movie. The scope of it - with the end of the world and Apocalypse coming - is going to be a very large, epic 'X-Men' film."

He also hinted that Quicksilver will have a bigger presences overall in the film, meaning he'll get to work with actors he didn't have screen time with during the last go-around. "She's great," Peters said of getting to work on set with Jennifer Lawrence. "All the cast is great. Everybody on set is just so nice, and so friendly and welcoming. We're all this big family that's stuck on this ginormous ship that is sailing slowly along. So I think everybody is incredibly nice, I'll tell you that much."

Director Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Apocalypse" hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
