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.

    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.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
