Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirmed as Quicksilver in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

As Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World opens in cinemas internationally, The Wrap is reporting that Kick-Ass and Savages star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is officially set to play Pietro “Quicksilver” Maximoff in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Taylor-Johnson’s portrayal of the speedy mutant will be the second take on the character to hit the big screen. Evan Peters is set to play the same role in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“We both have them,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told SuperHeroHype of the shared studio rights to the character last summer. “There’s a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with ‘Avengers,’ but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. They can use them as mutants and as Magneto’s relatives, but cannot have anything to do with ‘The Avengers.'”

Quicksilver’s sister, Wanda Maximoff (aka The Scarlet Witch), is also going to be featured in the superhero ensemble sequel with Elizabeth Olsen still said to be the frontrunner for the part. Check back for confirmation as soon as it becomes available.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
