New 'X-Men' clip of Evan Peters as Quicksilver before Pentagon break in

According to ComicBook.com on Saturday, a recent and revealing clip of "American Horror Story" and HBO's "The Normal Heart's" Evan Peters revealed a certain amount of story line from "X-Men: Days of Future Past." When the announcement of Peter Maximoff made it's debut, fans were not pleased with the image of the Quicksilver costume. It is funny how the tables have turned when seen in action.

When 20th Century Fox made its debut of the "X-Men" sequel, Quicksilver's bit where he encounters guards in the kitchen had quite the ovation. In fact, the character wasn't initially intended to have been the chosen one to break Magneto out of his concrete cell. It was the Juggernaut that was suppose to bash through the walls of the Pentagon to release Erik, but screenwriter Simon Kinberg thought that maybe they've exhausted Juggernaut's abilities from previous films. It was thought that Quicksilver would offer up a "new kind of visual power", said Kinberg.

The enjoyable portion of the film also had a soundtrack that played well with the situation. Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle" played out until the end of the Pentagon scene. Also, keep in mind, this Quicksilver is not to be confused by the brother and sister team duo in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron" flick directed by Joss Whedon. Some may have seen Quicksilver demonstrating his speedy prowess as he munched on a X-tra, Bacon, Egg, and Cheese biscuit product in a Hardees commercial.

In this clip, Peters is being approached by Logan, Professor Charles Xavier, and Beast for his help. Unbeknownst to himself, Peter Maximoff is unaware that there are others like him out there. Logan demonstrates this by revealing his pre-Adamantium bone claws. Peter notes that was rather disgusting to look at, but didn't discount the cool factor of the appendages.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" are currently in theaters everywhere.
