Actor Evan Peters, who essays the role of Quicksilver in the upcoming film "X-Men:Apocalypse", has revealed the storyline of his character, and it looks like the quest to reunite with his father is what lands him in the midst of all the action in store for the X-Men.

Speaking to Details, Peters said "X-Men: Apocalypse" would be "the biggest X-Men film" yet, and its scope was huge as it is about the apocalypse.

"The story is, my character is searching for his father and wants to find him. It starts there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole Apocalypse madness. He tries to stop him from destroying the world," noted the actor.

Quicksilver's father Magneto is one of the Four Horsemen who has pledged alliance to Apocalypse, an ancient mutant who is immortal and invincible. Apocalypse, worshipped as God since the dawn of civilisation, decides to cleanse the world of mankind to create a new world order over which he will preside.

The plot follows the X-Men's attempts to prevent the complete destruction of the world.
