Evan Peters talks about the cast, Quicksilver ‘slow motion scene’ in ‘X-Men Apocalypse’

While discussing the FX series American Horror Story: Hotel, Evan Peters talked about his experience with the X-Men cast, particularly confirming that his character does have another special “slow motion scene” in X-Men: Apocalypse.

“Yeah, Quicksilver does his thing again, in the new film,” Peters says in a new interview when asked if there will be a repeat of the great scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“It’s bigger, longer and more detailed. I think it’s an amazing sequence that they’ve put together. Just filming it, I was like, ‘Oh, my god!’ I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It’s so cool to take that much time to make something like that really pop and really work. Knock on wood, I think it’s going to be a fun and enjoyable sequence for people to watch, with Quicksilver running around and doing his thing in slow-mo time. I hope people like it.”

Peters was asked to compare the ensemble casts of X-Men with AHS.

” They’re hilarious. I think both groups of actors are hilarious. Actors are a really funny bunch of people, especially the X-Men cast. They’re super funny and super nice, and they like to go out and get drinks and dinner and hang out. It’s an experience. It’s a summer. It’s like camp. Everybody gets together and hangs out. It’s a lot of fun, working on those movies. The material for Horror Story is much darker than the X-Men films, although the X-Men stuff does have a lot of dramatic elements to it that are pretty serious. Obviously, Horror Story is dealing with horror and the drama of it all, so it’s much darker. People are in character more and try to stay in it more, but at the same time, they’re all hilarious, really nice and fun. We have some laughs and talk. It’s great.”

He continued: “…It’s cool to see everybody come together and do their own thing, but there’s never been any drama. I never saw any on the X-Men set, and I never saw any on the Horror Story set. It’s pretty amazing. It’s great to work with people who want to work together to make a great project. On the X-Men films, people are always throwing out ideas and trying to get the shot to look the best and make the most sense, and to get it done efficiently. Everybody collaborates and everybody is very open to new ideas. Maybe the director will be like, ‘No, that’s not a good idea,’ but they’re definitely open to you throwing out ideas, even if they aren’t going to work. It’s nice to be able to do that, and to work with other actors to come up with ideas.”
