Photo: Bryan Singer Reveals Filming Technique for Quicksilver Scenes in "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

Photo: Bryan Singer Reveals Filming Technique for Quicksilver Scenes in "X-Men: Days of Future Past"Submit Comment
Director Bryan Singer updated his Twitter account with a photo from his upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past," giving us a look a set that will be used for a scene featuring Quicksilver, the son of Magneto who has the power of super speed.

While the photo doesn't show us much, Singer wrote: "Brightest set I've ever filmed on. #3600framespersecond #Quicksilver." It appears that the director will shoot the scene in extreme slow motion to capture Quicksilver's movements. Filming at 3,600 frames per second is actually 150 times slower than the standard rate. As a result, more light is needed. Check out the photo below.

Quicksilver will be played by Evan Peters (Kick-Ass). "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is set to hit theaters on May 23rd, 2014.

Still pissed they wont bring back cyclops. Also heard a rumor there explanation for Xavior coming back was his mind created a new body. Losing hope.

Oh and most of the movie takes place in 1973 for some reason instead of the future being the main stay.

All bullsh*t aside, this is something that's always intrigued me from a technical filmmaking point of view. Granted, I've always asked the question regarding The Flash, not this Flash-hand-me-down Quicksilver dude.

If you made a whole movie around The Flash is going to require multiple action sequences, which raises the question: How do you make accessible to the audience said action when the character can, in theory, move faster than the speed of film itself?

On the comic book page all is frozen in still imagery, leaving room for the reader to project the whole of action in their own mind. But film is motion – real space and real time. Therefore The Flash would be nothing more than a trailing red blur. Is this enough to sustain viewers for an entire feature length running time?

Also consider that much of the narrative is dictated by geography, and when your hero can cover great distances in mere seconds, plotting, pacing and tension take on a whole new dilemma.

In this regard, Quicksilver won't be a central character, but I'm still interested to see how Singer's technical approach will play out.

Hopefully one of those bright lights falls onto Bryan Singer's head.

Thanks. I know, deep down, you're a hooker with a heart of gold. Let's share the care.

@Taco: Uncanny X-Men #141 cover shows Cyclops as Slain. He is not relevant in the future timeline of the original Claremont/Byrne story.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Days_of_Future_Past

@Cannon: Here is one technical way to bring Quicksilver’s speed to a level of audience accessibility. Overlap the blur speed of Quicksilver onto a normal speed situation and show these two separate motions at same time. Example they could show a scene in a chemistry lab. Quicksilver throws a ball across the room in regular time and your eye follows the arc as the ball rises, peaks and falls. Within same scene Quicksilver runs and perform a series of multiple complex tasks at various lab stations. The blur speed would become more focused & clearer when Quicksilver stops performs the task then moves on. Quicksilver ends up at the other side of the room, catches the ball and all tasks are completed. Demonstrates how fast he runs as the scene is based on what everyone can relate to which is the simple mechanics and gravity of a falling ball.

@Mr. Blonde

Interesting idea. I dig your thinking. Anything to avoid the Matrix/300 slo-mo speed ramping cliché.

Mr. Blonde writes:

@Cannon: yeah bullet time was pretty cool when first introduced. But it has reached cliche level having been done to death and even spoofed I think in Scary Movie series. Hoping Singer comes up with an innovative approach.

At the end of x3 last stand in after credits scene its revealed prof x transfered his mind into his long time comatose twin brother.

Yes no joke, thats what happened. Prof x wakes up in the hospital and starts talking to the doc. And she just says..."charles...?" Fade to black

They've been doing the whole time-contrast thing since the 1980s, at least. Guy moves in a blur while everything else movies in either normal or slow speed. Effective, but not very original. Hopefully DC tries to innovate a bit more like Marvel is innovating with Ant Man. Probably not.

@Cannon: they handled Flash's speed just fine in Flashpoint Paradox. Yes, I know it's just a cartoon, but CGI easily bridges of the cartoonish with the world of live-action.

I'm curious: what it is that they're doing with Ant-Man? I haven't heard anything about it.
