While X-Men: Days Of Future Past hinted at Magneto being Quicksilver's father, it seems that X-Men: Apocalypse will confirm that connection.

“I have learned that he's my father at this point and I am trying to … I don’t know what I can say,” Quicksilver actor Evan Peters told JoBlo. “Yeah. It's like an adoptive child or any kind of child who has a strange father trying to … He knows who he is now so he is trying to find him. He's been searching for him. It's been 10 years and he hasn't found him and then something happens.”

Peters also said that fans haven't seen the best of Quicksilver, despite his scene-stealing cameo in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“Yeah, I think that’s been the hardest thing,” Peters explained. “Can we top it? They did such a f---ing awesome job. The special effects team is amazing. Bryan Schmears over at Second Unit, everybody just made that whole sequence awesome, I thought. I was just a minion. They just told me what to do so I didn't really have much to do with it but I was curious to see how they were going to top it and if they could and I think they have. I'm very excited to see it myself. I'm excited for everybody to see it because we've been working hard on it.”

As for the other cinematic Quicksilver, who appeared - and died - in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Peters is holding out hope that there's still room for both characters on the big screen.

“They could always bring him back to life somehow or there could be another studio that starts making superhero films and throw Quicksilver in there,” said Peters. “I was really confused as to why they killed him. I thought it was really cool. It was a different take on the character, completely different. Scarlet Witch was there and yeah. I was kind of bummed that they killed him.”

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27.
