As demonstrated in X-Men: Days of Future Past, super-speed can be a pretty fun and useful power. When not being used to help prisoners escape from the depths below the Pentagon, it can be used to travel far distances instantly and just screw around with friends. There are all kinds of possibilities, and a few of them have been getting explored recently on the Quicksilver Instagram account. For example, this is how you play tennis when it takes you an instant to travel from one side of the court to the other:

Created in promotion of the upcoming release of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blu-ray and DVD, the official viral account has created and posted a few videos demonstrating how super speed could be very useful in every day situations. Like what if you've found yourself in the middle of a water fight but have no wish to get wet?

Or what if you forgot your girlfriend's birthday?

It's pretty obvious that the reason we don't actually see Quicksilver's face in any of these videos is because Fox didn't want to have to pay Evan Peters to do the job. Fortunately, however, it's already been promised that we haven't seen the last of the super speedy mutant. Writer/producer Simon Kinberg has said that there has always been a plan to include him in X-Men: Apocalypse, but that the proposed role has actually expanded ever since people fell in love with the character this past summer. It's worth noting that he will be portrayed as being 10 years older in the next X-Men film - which is set in 1983 - and there's a good chance that we could learn more about who his dad is (hint: it's Magneto).

X-Men: Apocalypse is on track to start production next year in advance of being released May 27, 2016, and X-Men: Days of Future Past will be available on home video October 14th.
