Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirmed to play Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron



In news that surprises pretty much no one who has been paying attention to the rumor mill, The Wrap has confirmed that Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be joining the cast of Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron as Quicksilver.

This is an interesting scenario as his fellow Kick-Ass actor Evan Peters will be playing the exact same character in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (sibling characters, for the uninitiated) are in a unique position as they occupy rights within both the X-Men franchise (they're Magneto's children, Fox's purview) and the Avengers universe (they were amongst some of the earliest members of the team).

Marvel Studios use of the character, and Scarlet Witch, who will also be in Age of Ultron, hinges on the film not making mention of their mutant heritage.

A Scarlet Witch casting announcement should be imminent as well, the rumors have been focused on Elisabeth Olsen in that potential role.
