Excellent news! According to THR, Evan Peters will be returning for the next X-Men film. Quicksilver is back, baby! The fan favorite is set to join the other returning cast members.

For fans of the comic, they will remember Quicksilver was not a part of the Dark Phoenix storyline. So we’re unsure how he will play into the overall story. Since the character’s popularity, we’re sure he’ll be prolific but hopefully not too overbearing. As said, he joins returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hault, James McAvoy

In addition to Evans coming back, a new cast member has joined. Lamar Johnson has been cast in an unnamed role. Apparently his character is being kept under wraps so we’ll need to keep an eye out on him. Production for the film began this week in Montreal so we may not hear of any other casting news. But Johnson is a welcome addition.

What do you think of the casting and return of Quicksilver? Are you looking forward to the film or are you apprehensive? Let us know and be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more X-Men news.
