Evan Peters is officially part of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The film’s director, Bryan Singer, revealed on Twitter Thursday that the American Horror Story star will take on the role of Quicksilver in the upcoming X-Men prequel/sequel. In an enthusiastic tweet, Bryan said, “Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.”

A little background on Quicksilver: he’s the son of Magneto (who is played by Michael Fassbender, but the role was originated by Ian McKellan), and has a twin sister who is known as the Scarlet Witch. (The role of the Scarlet Witch has yet to be cast.) Quicksilver eventually became part of The Avengers, and is described as a villain who turns good.

The film’s director loves to reveal news on Twitter, as he’s shown off sneak peeks of Jennifer Lawrence as a “vengeful” Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as a retro-looking Beast, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and many more. Other stars appearing in the film include Oscar winner Halle Berry, who will reprise her role as the white haired Storm, Twilight‘s Boo Boo Stewart, Ellen Page, and many more.

X-Men: Days of Future Past — which is the sequel to the prequel X-Men: First Class — is scheduled to hit theaters on July 18, 2014.
