The contract for X-Men has been done for 15 years. There is no working on it. They even already used someone who is pretty clearly Quicksilver in a throwaway scene in Wolverine and supposedly Singer only wants him for another throwaway action sequence.

Screw your smiley, this is serious business!
I was speaking of the contract for Evan Peters to play the character. That contract would have been in motion in the last few weeks.
Not necessarily. Auditions, certainly would have been going on, but not necessarily exclusively for this particular role. They may well have had him as a runner up for another role and decided to offer him this part when they decided to go ahead with including the character/the particular sequence. I've gone from a callback to on set the next day. Unless you're a star or at an agency with the power (and enough interest in you) to negotiate, you don't risk losing the job for a few bucks.
