Why didn’t Wolverine take Quicksilver with him to Paris?

In X-Men: Days of the Future Past movie, the primary mission of Wolverine was stopping Mystique from killing Trask. With the help of Quicksilver, couldn't he achieve this within 0.0001 second? This looks easier than breaching the Pentagon.
They never even needed to identify Mystique. All Quicksilver needed was to be around Trask until someone shoots a bullet at him, divert the bullet and capture the shooter. Done!
Why exactly did Wolverine and company avoid using Quicksilver for this mission?

Solutions/Answers:

Answer 1:

The film’s writer, Simon Kinsberg addressed this point in a podcast interview for Empire Magazine (39:24)

“When asked why the X-Men didn’t take Quicksilver to Paris with them,
Kinberg answered, “I love that people are asking this question,
because I think it comes from people loving Evan Peters in the film.
It was just a story decision. They go to Peter to help them with one
mission to break Erik out of prison. He completes the mission so he’s
done for this film…”


Out of universe, the reason is far more mundane. The scenes in Paris were written and scripted (and partially filmed) before the character of Quicksilver was ever added to the film, presumably as a way of preventing Marvel from taking full ownership of the rights to the character.

The only way they could add him to the cast was to write an entirely new scene which they could then place at the start of the film and hope that the film’s viewers didn’t notice that he simply disappeared.

Answer 2:

Given Quicksilver’s awesome power, him being in Paris would have killed a lot of the suspense in those scenes. And like others said, Quicksilver was a late addition to the film, so they weren’t going to reshoot the movie just to include him everywhere.

However, if you want an “in-story” explanation, maybe Wolverine and Xavier felt he was too young. He looked to be a highschooler, and his mother would surely freak out if some random guys decided to take him to Paris. Also, Quicksilver has had run ins with the law, so maybe Xavier didn’t want to deal with his compulsive stealing and hyperactivity for a prolonged period.

How has Magneto aged so gracefully?

How has Magneto aged so gracefully?

Magneto currently resides with Cyclops on utopia and is barely showing any signs of aging, despite being born in the 1920s. I realize that this is also the case for many other characters in cartoons and comics who aren't portrayed by actors and thus aren't constrained by consistent casting.
I know in the X-Men: Evolution cartoon he undergoes some process to heighten his mutant abilities, which also seems to have strengthened him in general, but this is the only instance of his age being reduced or otherwise fortified that I can find. I also know he was supposedly 'de-aged' but it turns out that was merely a clone.
How has he aged so gracefully then?

Solutions/Answers:

Answer 1:

Magneto was de-aged by Alpha the Ultimate Mutant in Defenders 15-16…he was later re-aged by the Shi’ar Eric The Red to a body in its 30s or 40s (Uncanny X-Men 104).

Given that the forward aging of most people in the Marvel Universe is slowed, he should still be in that range physically. Mentally, though, he is the age he should be.
