UPDATE: Details On Bryan Singer And Fox's Plans For Quicksilver In X-MEN: DOFP Revealed?

Today, it was revealed that Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox have found their own Quicksilver for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Well, we now have more information as to exactly why they've made this seemingly antagonistic move towards Marvel and what this means for The Avengers 2.

One need only take a quick look on Twitter or even in the comment section of THIS article to see that the reaction to the news that Fox is planning on introducing their own version of Quicksilver in next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past has not been met at all positively by fans. In contrast, the recent reveal by Joss Whedon and subsequent confirmation by Kevin Feige that Marvel Studios are planning on making the character (and his sister the Scarlet Witch) members of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in The Avengers 2 was a decision praised by fans, regardless of the fact that it meant their mutant heritage could not be mentioned. The fact that Bryan Singer and Fox have made what appears to be a very late stage casting addition to interfere with Marvel's idea seemingly means that there is now a very real possibility that the studio will no longer use the duo due to any confusion or legal problems this could cause.

However, a report over at HitFix has shed some more light on both Singer's plans for Quicksilver and the relationship between the two studios "This is not a situation where the two different companies are working together to try and create a sense of a larger shared world. In fact, if either of them could get the other to back off, they would. The thing is, Bryan Singer has designed a sequence that he feels only works with Quicksilver, and Joss Whedon feels that there is a pressing reason for Quicksilver to show up in "The Avengers 2," and so what we're going to see is a legally-negotiated stand-off in which we'll get two totally different versions of one character. While they may act like things are amicable in public, HitFix sources say otherwise." Unsurprisngly, they add that, "Marvel has larger plans for the character, though, and wants to use him for more than just one action sequence."

Some have even rather naively speculated that this is all part of some grand plan to merge the two franchises. It's not. In fact, if anything, Fox may just end up seriously compromising their relationship with Marvel after already clashing with them last year over the rights for Daredevil and some key Fantastic Four villains. "If they push forward and allow Singer to include the character, there's a chance they're burning down any future cooperation with Marvel, who have proven themselves to be hard negotiators who aren't afraid to flex whatever muscle they have." How do you guys feel now knowing that Quicksilver's role in X-Men: Days of Future Past will more than likely consist of little more than one big action sequence? Are you still hoping to see him and the Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2? Sound off with your thoughts below!
