“The way we conceived him is a sort of an ADD kid,” screenwriter Simon Kinberg told the magazine. “Everything he does is just popping and zipping around. He doesn’t take anything seriously. He’s not in a situation for more than a few seconds. So it infused the movie with an energy that was really useful for us.”
One things fans will be keen to point out is Quicksilver will share some screen time with Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, his father in the source material, which might be addressed in the film.
“Quicksilver is Magneto’s son in the comics and there may be an allusion to it in the movie,” Kinberg told EW. “But it’s not something we fully explore yet.”
