In an effort to make me hate the Days of Future Past version of speedy mutant Quicksilver even more, fast food chain Carl’s Jr went and did this. Note the X-tra bacon.

Carl’s Jr, aka Hardee’s, has teamed up with some of the actors from X-Men: Days of Future Past to help promote its new line of “X-tra Bacon” sandwiches. Why? I’m guessing people lack the willpower to order extra bacon on their own.

Quicksilver is one of my favourite Marvel characters. The son of Magneto and brother to the Scarlet Witch and half-brother to Polaris. In current comic book continuity he’s hanging with his half-sis in the latest incarnation of Peter David’s X-Factor, which I turn to for comfort every time I see Evan Peters with horrible silver hair and a shiny jacket (he’s quick, also silver.)

I like Evan Peters — loved him in the first season of American Horror Story. Here, not so much.

In related news, Daniel Cudmore is still amazing as Colossus, even if he doesn’t have an accent.

  • Why is Daniel Cudmore amazing as Colossus? He’s had barely any screen time and isn’t like classic Colossus at all (not including the haircut, I guess?).

  • its a multimillion dollar movie and quicksilver wig looks like it was bought from $2 shop. Worst superhero costume ever

    • Maybe there’s a scene where he buys a wig from a $2 shop and it all makes sense.

      Damn that is bad. In the X-men series of movies the characters have always looked pretty good, and than they ran out of money for Quicksilver it seems.

    • Wait, this is the actual actor in costume?! Oh wow…I thought it was like relevant cosplay.
