Multiple Rush references in X-men: Apocalypse

Tue, Jun 7, 2016@10:57AM | comments

Ever since the trailer for the film X-men Apocalypse released back in December, we've been talking about how the character Quicksilver (played by Evan Peters) is seen wearing a vintage Moving Pictures t-shirt (the film is set in 1983). The movie released over Memorial Day weekend and the t-shirt isn't the only Rush reference in the film. When Quicksilver is introduced towards the beginning of the movie, he's shown in his parent's basement (where he lives) and both a Rush Signals poster and a Moving Pictures poster can be seen on the wall as shown in this image (it's blurry, but you can make out the posters on the left). There's also a neat reference right at the end of the film where Quicksilver is wearing a cast on his leg and I Luv Rush is written on it.
