Bryan Singer’s latest image from the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past has arrived on Twitter, and it teases one of the most recent additions to his sprawling cast.
The new image features a family home with a mailbox sporting the name “Maximoff”, instantly recognisable to serious fans as the abode of one Pietro Maximoff, better known as Quicksilver.

Much has been made of Quicksilver’s addition to the film, particularly since Joss Whedon has also written the character into his script for The Avengers 2 .
As you might have guessed, Maximoff’s mutant ability is super-speed, although which of the film’s two timelines he will be employing it in remains to be seen. That house looks fairly period-neutral, so no clues there…
Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 23 May 2014.
