Quicksilver has been one of the bright spots in the last couple of X-Men movies. Evan Peters has done an amazing job playing the X-Men’s speedster. He’s been funny, and his scenes where time moves slowly around him have been the best part of each movies he’s in. The trailer showed him run towards Jean at super speed. This isn’t going to end well for him. Quicksilver may move fast, but Jean Grey’s speed of thought is faster. She isn’t going to take his attacks lightly. There’s a scene in the trailer where Jean is fighting Magento. He may be attacking her after he finds out that Jean killed the son he didn’t know he had.

Chance of death: 40%


Hank McCoy has been a forgotten character in this series. It’s not that he’s been bad, he just hasn’t done anything memorable except turn blue. The movies haven’t tapped into the part of Beast that’s playful. Without that, he’s bland. If he dies in this movie, no one is going to care. However, there is another option. He could become a popular character in the comics called Dark Beast.

We already know that Nathaniel Essex (Mr. Sinister) is in this universe. He was mentioned in X-Men: Apocalypse and in Deadpool 2. Dark Beast and Essex worked together in the Age of Apocalypse. While this won’t be that, he could go to work for him and become a villain. Plus, Hank McCoy makes a much better villain than he does a hero.
