New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Viral Video With Quicksilver Hints At His Father

A new video has been released onto Peter Maximoff's Instagram account.

The video shows Peter, a.k.a. Quicksilver, playing some kind of trivia game with his friends. The question asks what a lodestone is. He then uses his super speed to use the internet and some books to find out the answer.

The text with the video says, "Good thing Mom kept all those weird books on magnets." This is a clear tease at the idea that Magneto is Peter's father, as he is in the comics.

Of course, I'm not really sure why Peter, a child from the 1970s, is on Instagram and using the Internet at all. Considering the video's primary purpose seems to be as product placement for Pringles potato crisps, I might take its canonicity with a grain of salt.

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to Blu-ray and DVD on October  14.
