Evan Peters Reveals Exactly How Long It Took to Shoot Quicksilver’s Scene in X-Men: Apocalypse

When audiences saw Quicksilver's scene in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the response had been phenomenal, and many agreed it was one of the best cinematic scenes in the X-Men universe so far. Because of it, the makers of the next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, vowed to make another Quicksilver scene that would top the previous one.

As noted by Cinema Blend, Pietro Maximoff's highly anticipated sequence in X-Men: Apocalypse was really impressive. However, what's more remarkable than the actual scene is the length of time it took for the filmmakers to shoot it.

The site caught up with Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in of Future Past and Apocalypse, during the movie's press junket in London earlier this month. Asked during the interview about his character and that awesome scene in the movie, Peters shared exactly how many days it took to shoot it and why despite the length, it was completely worth it.

The 29-year-old actor revealed:

It took like 20-something days. Yeah – ‘Whoa.' It was insane. It was a lot. But it was very fun, and we just basically tried to top the last one, right? Make it bigger, better, longer, more interesting, funnier… It was cool – and the song is great too!

It's amazing how it took almost a quarter of the entire production schedule to make the scene. It's definitely something to look out for. Thankfully, there aren't any spoilers from the site.

There's a clip of Quicksilver's big rescue scene revealed in a TV spot earlier this month though. I'm assuming this isn't that.

We'll find out what that scene is when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on Friday, May 27.
