Aaron Taylor-Johnson Confirmed to Play Quicksilver in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

We aren't exactly surprised about this next piece of news, as it's been a pretty poorly guarded secret. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has officially been confirmed as Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron". While it may come as no surprise since it's been in the news for a couple of months now, we are still pleased about it nonetheless.

Taylor-Johnson is a great actor and has mastered the superhero genre with his work on the "Kick-Ass" films. He has also showed a deeper side of his emotional range in such films a Oliver Stone's "Savages" and "Anna Karenina".

Quicksilver is part of a twin duo with his sister Scarlet Witch. It's been reported that the very talented Elizabeth Olsen will portray Scarlet Witch. Aesthetically, this seems like a really solid pair up since the two do resemble each other. I always appreciate when productions get that part down.

The character of Quicksilver will also appear in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and will be portrayed by Evan Peters. Certainly an interesting development to have the same character in universes that are shared but that have to pretend not to be, due to rights.

Are you happy with this official casting news? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
