Marvel Exec Kevin Feige discusses Quicksilver crossover with ‘Avengers Age of Ultron’ and ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’

One character set to make a big splash is Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, who will be appearing in Marvel Studios’ The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Quicksilver Marvel ComicsThe shared property rights is a unique situation and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige discusses the situation with the NY Daily News

“There are only a handful of characters that occupy that middle ground,” says Feige. “Iron Man is not going to show up over there and Magneto is not going to show up over here.”

“But there are a few grey points even after many years of negotiations… and that only happens with a character like Quicksilver, who has been a part of the X-Men, the son of Magneto in those comics, but also a primary Avenger.”

Not only will there be no crossover, there will be very few similarities according to Feige.

“The characters [on the screen] are going to be very different,” continues Feige. “Other than their powers, general audiences might not even know that the two are related.”

Fans will get two different Quicksilver characters in two different superhero universes, played by two different actors: Evan Peters or Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the role when Days Of Future Past opens on May 22 2014, followed by Avengers: Age Of Ultron on May 1,2015.
