It looks like Kick-Ass may try his hand at another comic book superhero. One with powers other than a lot of heart and courage, this time. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who was also seen in "Savages" and "Anna Karenina", is being eyed to play Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's "Avengers 2".
Of course we learned a few weeks back that Bryan Singer will also be utilizing the character of Quicksilver in his "X-Men: Days of Future Past", and that Evan Peters will be playing him. Our hope of continuity and getting to finally see characters that live in the same universe together, like The Avengers and X-Men, was crushed a little bit, as both studios have to adhere to certain rules in order to include the character. Fox cannot mention that Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch were ever Avengers, and Disney can't mention that the siblings are Magneto's children or any mutant references at all.
Actress Saoirse Ronan was the prototype of who Disney envisioned would play Wanda/Scarlet Witch, therefore making her and Taylor-Johnson twin siblings if they both locked the roles. While they don't necessarily look related, they both do have sparkling blue eyes, so perhaps with some movie magic and a lot of make-up, they can share a resemblance. Both are very talented actors, that much is certain.
