This article is about the X-Men Quicksilver. For Other versions of the character, see Quicksilver.

Quicksilver (real name Peter Maximoff) is a character from Marvel Comics who appears in the X-Men film franchise. He is mutant with speed powers and the son of Magneto.

X-Men Cinematic Universe

Another version of Quicksilver, named Peter Maximoff appears in the X-Men Cinematic Universe, portrayed by Evan Peters. The Quicksilver in those films is a completely separate adaptation of the character from the one featured in Avengers: Age of Ultron, with his name changed to "Peter", on account of being born and raised American.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

After Logan goes back in time to 1973, he recruits Quicksilver, to help break Magneto, out of the pentagon.

Deadpool 2

Quicksilver, along with a few other members of the X-Men appear in a brief cameo. They can be seen conversing in another room, while Wade is in the X-Mansion, complaining that the studio hasn't allowed them to bring in one of the more famous members of the team.

Dark Phoenix

Quicksilver returns, albeit briefly, when he aids the team in rescuing the astronauts in space at the beginning of the film. During the mission, Jean Grey absorbs the Phoenix Force which begin to have an effect on her mental health and powers. When she goes to confront her father back at his home, Quicksilver is among the X-Men to try and bring Jean back to the mansion. A fight breaks out after Mystique is killed and, despite his speed, Quicksilver ends up getting tossed aside and severely injured. He does not reappear until the end of the film where he has made a full recovery, though jokes that he could have healed a lot faster.



  • The actors who portray the two Quicksilvers (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters) appeared together in the movie Kick-Ass, which was a superhero movie based on a comic book by Icon, an imprint of Marvel Comics.
  • In the WandaVision series, despite the Pietro in Westview and the Quicksilver from the X-Men films being played by the same, which caused many to believe that they were the same character, the eighth episode reveals that Pietro in Westview is an actual person who was the result of a "crystalline possession" who acted as Agatha's eyes and ears.
    • This had already been hinted when Agnes reavealed herself as the witch Agatha Harkness in the seventh episode and the one responsible for bringing Pietro to Westview, implying that he is actually someone else pretending to be Wanda's brother, instead of the Quicksilver from the X-Men films.
    • In seventh episode, this is also hinted when Wanda tells Billy and Tommy that this Pietro is not their uncle, when Vision calls him "impostor" and when "Pietro" captures Monica Rambeau during the post-credit scene.
