Who are the 2 funniest mutants you can think of in the “X-Men” movie universe?
If you asked us, Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) are arguably the 2 mutants from the “X-Men” movie franchise who have made us laugh the hardest. And if you asked Peters, he thinks that it would be a pretty good idea to team them up.
“I would like to see a Deadpool/Quicksilver movie, I think that would be really fun,” the 29-year-old actor recently told The Wrap. That is definitely an idea worth exploring. Maybe it’s not too late to include Peters’ character in “Deadpool 2“?
Although we already know that the next “Deadpool” sequel is going to feature Cable (a time traveling cybernetic warrior who teams up with the “Merc with a Mouth”), we can’t help but wonder about the excellent chemistry both Deadpool and Quicksilver will almost certainly have onscreen. The witty remarks and snappy dialogues between the 2 characters alone would be worth watching.
When asked about the possibility of doing a standalone film for Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver, Peters was somewhat hesitant about the idea, citing the time-consuming nature of his slow-motion scenes in both “Days of Future Past” and the recent “Apocalypse”.
“Oh my god, I don’t know. It would take 3 years to shoot, wouldn’t it? Yeah I don’t know,” said Peters.
He has a valid point though. Although the massive scene-stealing Quicksilver sequence was only a couple of minutes, the fast motion scene took around a month and a half to film.
Moving forward, Fox should really take into consideration Quicksilver’s popularity. Regardless if it’s giving him more screen time in the next “X-Men” movie, a solo film, or allowing him to team-up with other mutants in future spinoffs, audiences and critics clearly want to see more of the speedster.
“Deadpool” is currently available on DVD and Blu Ray.
