A number of pictures from X-Men: Days of Future Past, the highly anticipated summer blockbuster, have been posted online.

The pictures feature American Horror Story actor Evan Peters as Quicksilver, which has puzzled fans who were expecting Aaron Taylor-Johnson to play the Marvel speedster in Joss Whedon’s Avenger’s sequel.

The Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has been defending his choice of Quicksilver, claiming his change does not make the movie a reboot.

Singer said: “It’s not a reboot because there’s some of the same characters and same actors, But it’s also not a conventional sequel — I call it an inbetweequel.”

The leaked photo also raises questions about Professor Xavier in the movie, who appears to be stood up in the photo.

Fans are already speculating over who will portray the true Quicksilver, but with nearly a year between the movies, we will have to wait to find out.
