The upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix will see yet another decade or so pass from the last film, X-Men: Apocalypse. This means that Dark Phoenix will take place in the 1990s, and one X-Man who is set to return is the fan-favorite Quicksilver, who was introduced in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and is portrayed by Evan Peters.

Over the course of his time in the series, he’s grown a bit. When we last saw him, he was on a mission to get to know his father, Magneto…but where will the next film see the character? Peters had a chance to sit down with Screen Rant, and speaking with them, he discussed how the character has changed since Apocalypse.

“He’s definitely a little older and more mature, a little more subdued, sort of trying to make a, not a name but trying to do right by the X-Men and be a good guy and use his powers for good, so I think he’s on that path at the moment.”

Given that the character will be substantially older this time around, that makes a lot of sense. He’s moved beyond trying to be a cool, badass character, and with his mission to connect with his father accomplished (for better and worse), he has more altruistic goals to achieve.

At this point, it’s hard to tell how involved he’ll be in the upcoming film, as details are sparse, and all we really know is that it starts off with a space mission that goes wrong. We’ll better be able to gauge Quicksilver’s involvement when the trailer hits.
