Aaron Taylor-Johnson / Quicksilver

Briefly: Following a report earlier this month that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was closing his deal to play Pietero Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, in the developing Marvel sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Wrap has word that the deal finally officially closed today. The issue was the actor's publicity schedule for Godzilla (coming May 16th, 2014) getting in the way of the shooting schedule for the sequel from director Joss Whedon, but now he'll be able to do both. Taylor-Johnson is one-half of a new sibling duo entering the superhero ensemble with Elizabeth Olsen (who also stars in the aforementioned reboot of the classic Japanese movie monster) playing his magical sister Scarlet Witch. Stay tuned for more Marvel news.

Hmm that's pretty cool.

Good stuff. I love that Taylor-Johnson and Olsen are appearing together in Godzilla as a couple, and then in Age of Ultron as brother and sister. A cool little duo across two films.

And should help the chemistry as well. Haven't seen either of them in anything yet, but working w/ someone you've worked with before should help make the sibling love/rivalry believable.

Why or why do they keep casting people who have already played comic book heroes? Was there really no one else who was qualified?

Does that really ruin the casting for you?

True, very good point. I guess I just wish they would branch out a bit. He is a solid choice though. Thanks Ethan

The logic just doesn't add up. "You gave the best performance for our take on the character, but you played Kick-Ass...so we have to go with the 2nd best audition."

what about Evan peters? He's playing Quicksilver in X-men DoFP? Nobody really cares that there are two separate quicksilvers now?

The Xmen movie storyline doesn't even make sense anymore, its like 50 different parallel universes in one so I try not to think about them in the marvel verse anymore haha what I want to know is how is Quicksilver in the Avengers? doesn't Fox own the rights to all the xmen characters
