Evan Peters to play Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) has been cast as Quicksilver, half of the sibling pair fathered by Magneto, for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Quicksilver is known for his ability to move and think at superhuman speed.

Now... this creates a bit of confusion regarding The Avengers 2. Joss Whedon announced earlier that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have been written into the script for The Avengers 2. However, in Bryan Singer's casting announcement he said "before he was an Avenger he was just a REALLY fast kid." This implies that there is no conflict with the characters, but it may confuse viewers to see the characters in two different movies. Especially if the casting doesn't rollover from Fox to Marvel/Disney. BUT... Fox doesn't have the rights to include Marvel characters from The Avengers, so the reference to The Avengers definitely won't be in Days of Future Past.
