The Avengers Sequel Has Its Quicksilver

Well, that took long enough! After months of wrangling, Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has finally been signed to play Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The move reunites him with Elizabeth Olsen — his co-star in the forthcoming Godzilla reboot — who will play his sister, the Scarlet Witch.

The only remaining mystery about the superfast mutant Quicksilver is what he will look like. Johnson told Total Film:

“That’s what we’re in talks about, really, right now — how I could become that character and not feel forced. I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong… It just doesn’t work like that.”
