As one of you mentioned yesterday, it would be a whole lot cooler if all upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron news were announced by Samuel L. Jackson. Including but not limited to what’s on the craft service table everyday. (“Twizzlers, mother*cker.”) Alas, we have no such Jacksonian authority on this casting news. In fact, it’s still in rumor status. But of the “very likely” variety. On the heels of the news that Elizabeth Olson will play the Scarlet Witch, The Latino Review confirmed that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been cast as her brother, Quicksilver. That’s right, folks. Kickass.
On the one hand, I’m not a huge fan of Taylor-Johnson’s work and am much more excited for the Quicksilver they’ve cast in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Yes, Evan Peters (above on the right) you can do no wrong. On the other hand? In Joss we trust.
If the Scarlet Witch’s headdress and, uh, impractical combat bustier aren’t going to make it into an Avengers movie, can we assume the same about Quicksilver’s dumb horn hair?
