Live Twitter recap of 'X-Men' interview and Quicksilver character profile

According to Comic Book Movie on Saturday, director Simon Kinberg took to Twitter to address fans and their questions about "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Also, there had been some video featurettes entailing some of the X-Men character attributes, most recently Quicksilver. Keep in mind, this person is not to be confused by the Quicksilver of Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron".

Notably in the question/answer session Kinberg mentioned his most favorite character to write for was Magneto, mostly because he's rather complex and philosophical. In another interview, Kinberg also mentioned this being the same reason he will be enjoying writing about the ancient mutant Apocalypse in "X-Men: Apocalypse".

Kinberg also addressed a fan question in regards to which part of the time line he enjoyed writing for the most, the future or the past. His answer was Logan/Wolverine only because he exists in both timelines. If anyone recalls, it was Kitty Pryde that was initially the one to be sent back into the past to save mutant-kind from Bolivar Trask's Sentinels in the comic book, but now things have changed since it would only make sense to send Logan back to his younger body as he exists in both points in time.

The Twitter session continued on, with posted pictures of the cast holding up signs saying #XMenLiveChat Twitter Cast Chat as likely evidence of this event happening in real time. A couple of pictures, for example included Peter Dinklage, who plays Bolivar Tarsk. Also, Michael Fassbender with James McAvoy hamming it up by wearing Magneto's prop helmet.

Also, a recent character profile of Quicksilver, a.k.a. Pietro Maximoff, is shown making a jailbreak to acquire Magneto from the inner depths of the Pentagon. Scenes being displayed that have stunning special effects that would remind science fiction fans of the "Matrix" trilogy. There's even an amusing portion of the clip where Maximoff gives one of the prison guards a wedgie.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens in theaters come May 23.
