It is official now. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is now the mutant Avenger known as Quicksilver. The Wrap broke the news yesterday, that the star of Kick-Ass and the upcoming Godzilla will be in Avengers: The Age of Ultron. Why the long delay? It seems Godzilla has a bigger shadow than we thought. 

“Taylor-Johnson didn’t close his deal until Wednesday, as the ‘Age of Ultron’ shooting schedule overlaps with his upcoming publicity tour for Legendary’s “Godzilla” reboot. That potential obstacle has been overcome and his availability to properly promote that creature feature and shoot the ‘Avengers’ sequel is now ensured.

Taylor-Johnson will be the twin brother of the Scarlet Witch, who will be played by Elizabeth Olsen. What will be interesting to see if that one day the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come together and they play a scene with the Comic Book father, Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen). 

Aaron Taylor-Johnson joins Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, and James Spader in Avengers: Age of Ultron which arrives May 1st, 2015.

It's funny that 2 of the stars of Kick Ass are playing both Quicksilvers.

Glad it's a done deal. I've grown to like Johnson

good choice, can't wait to see this.

This will indeed be an interesting movie. I'm hoping for cross overs in the future, though. Some Wolvie and Spiderman in Avengers would definitely dominate.

 Quicksilver likes to bang old chicks.

Who doesn't?

Old men

This is the better casting of Quicksilver.

Yeah, I heard his wife is like double his age. Not that there is anything wrong with that. You just normally see the old guy and young girl all the time instead. His wife is 46 but I don't find her that great looking. If I was to bang an older movie director chick, I would go for Kathryn Bigelow.

I wonder if he'll have an accent. I've always pictured QS to have a eastern European accent with an arrogant euro-trash attitude.

I would have preferred Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy)
