    as long as Tom Hiddleston is gonna be in it again, they can hire anyone else for all i care!

  • uhh

    so I’m confused why are there 2 Quick Silvers, why can’t Evan Peters crossover to Avengers? Aren’t they all Marvel Comic characters, that would be like two different actors playing Iron Man.

    @uhh: Because x-men belongs to Fox and Avengers to Marvel, but both can use Quicksilver. The diference is that Marvel can’t mention he’s Magneto son. In some aspects it was a weird negotation

    he looks better as Count Vronsky

  • Sophia

    he is very talented, and waaaay better than Evan. But I agree with #1, as long Tom stays, everyone else is welcome.

    if it’s 2 different niggas playing the same guy — in movies that come out pretty close together — it’s gonna be lame. one’s gonna be better than the other and it’s gonna gjkhgjfdsghkjdfsg i got tired of typing.
