Report: Quicksilver cast for Avengers sequel

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has allegedly signed to play Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Latino-Review are reporting that following months of speculation, the Kick Ass star has now finally put pen to paper to appear in Marvel’s superhero ensemble sequel. It was recently claimed by Samuel L. Jackson that Quicksilver’s sister Scarlet Witch will be played by Elizabeth Olsen.

Taylor-Johnson previously spoke about Quicksilver back in August, telling Total Film – while stressing that at that point no deal had been done with Marvel, though talks were ongoing – that he was looking to “push the boundaries” with the character.

 

“There’s years – over 50 years – of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that. Him and his sister [Scarlet Witch] have been abandoned by their parents and their father, and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance – emotionally she’s the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He’s very overprotective physically – he doesn’t want anyone touching her.”

“He has real anger frustration – I like that. I always thought it’d be quite funny if you saw him eating loads and people asked him why and he’d explain it’s because he’s burning so much energy all the time. Or ideas that you’d see him come back round – but he’s already nipped out and got his lunch somewhere else. He just got bored – his attention span is so fucking quick.”

“I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong… it just doesn’t work like that. It’s about – unless you’re Jim Carrey or Nic Cage and go ‘This is the character’, people go ‘OK, OK…’

“When people haven’t been shown your range like that, then they’re a bit more skeptical – they may not want you to push the boundaries in that way. But that’s what I’m interested in as an actor…”

 

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to release on May 1 2015.
