Evan Peters, the breakout star of FX creepest American Horror Story, has landed a main role in the upcoming X-Men sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. The new entry will bring together characters from the X-Men trilogy and prequel X-Men: First Class.

Singer broke the news over Twitter: “Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining#XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as#Quicksilver.”

Peters will portray Quicksilver, a mutant with the ability of super speed. In the comics, Quicksilver was Magneto’s son, and he later joined The Avengers along with his sister Scarlet Witch. How he will factor in to the film’s growing cast has yet to be determined.
