Matthew Vaughn Would've Had Juggernaut Instead Of Quicksilver For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST


While chatting to Empire on their most recent podcast, Vaughn described his vision for the awesome Quicksilver rescue scene -- and it didn't involve Quicksilver! Instead, it would have been Juggernaut (the unstoppable villain played by Vinnie Jones in X-Men 3) who smashed through the Pentagon and led Magneto to freedom. Originally, the super-fast mutant didn't factor into the sequence at all, and it began with Beast piloting the Blackbird over Washington airspace. This much we already knew, but Vaughn's description adds in some dialogue from the characters involved.

"I had Juggernaut being thrown out of a plane at 20,000 feet and using his head to go down a hole to get to the bottom of [The White House]. I had Beast saying, ‘I have a plan,’ and him replying, ‘What’s the plan? What’s the plan?’, and they go higher and higher and Beast was going to go, ‘This is it!’ and chuck him out the window. Then he goes smashing through [The White House] with his and Magneto goes, ‘Who the [frick] are you?"

Though that sounds cool in its own right, the Quicksilver slo-mo scene is fantastic, and Vaughn himself thinks it's “the best scene in the movie”. The director goes on to admit that Singer's take on things worked out for the best, admitting with a laugh: “I would have made the movie worse. The Quicksilver one was better.”
