New X-Men Trailer Features Vintage Rush T-Shirt

By Brian Ives 

Blink and you’ll miss it… because Quicksilver is wearing it. For for a few seconds in the new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse the mutant speedster is seen wearing a Rush t-shirt. By the font of the shirt, it looks to be from the 1981 Moving Pictures  era, which makes sense, as the film is said to take place in the early ’80s.

Is Quicksilver actually a Rush fan? Probably not on the comic books. More likely it’s a gag: his mutant power is super speed, and he’s wearing a shirt that says “Rush.” Which would be the best rock t-shirt related pun in a super hero film since Tony Start (Robert Downey Jr) wore a Black Sabbath t-shirt in The Avengers (in case you’re not following, Tony Stark is Iron Man, Black Sabbath have a classic song called “Iron Man.”)

Rush has yet to comment, but we’re thinking that even if they do retire (although frontman Geddy Lee doesn’t seem to think that they’re quite done yet), they’d be wise to print extra copies of that t-shirt and stock their online store with it.
