Quicksilver Cast in Avengers Sequel

It’s being reported that Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) has been cast as Quicksilver in the big-screen Avengers: Age of Ultron, joining Elisabeth Olsen as his sister the Scarlet Witch (via ComicsAlliance).

It will be interesting to compare the two different takes on the character; Marvel’s most well-known speedster is also appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he’ll be played by Evan Peters.

    Kind’a lost interest in Age of Ultron when they decided to do a switcheroo on Ultron’s daddy/creator. (I swear the Comic Book/Movie Powers That Be on both sides of the fence hate me.) However, am a bit curious as to what kind of costumes they are going to force on the new additions.

      Yeah, I hate that Hank Pym isn’t gonna be Ultron’s creator. That would’ve been a great way to tie Ant-Man in, but oh well, whatcha gonna do. On another note, I can see Johnson as Quicksilver. It’ll be interesting to compare how he’s handled here & then in X-Men: Days of Future Past- though I have a feeling the former will have a better portrayal than the latter- I’ve just not been pleased AT ALL with the X-Men franchise. I felt like X-Men First Class was a bit over 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back. And I didn’t even bother with The Wolverine.

          I gave up on X-men movies when III came out. Horrible piece of wasted celluloid or whatever they use to store movies on these days. New Marvel movies (or any movie) will have to be blockbusters for me to even consider them anymore. Wasted too much moolah in the past on rotten tomatoes. Only DVD I seriously will take a chance on *sight unseen!* will be Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor. 😀
          Sadly, can not say the same for anything DC. It’s all dark now.
          Whatever happened to stuff like Space Jam? I’d give my eyetooth for a movie pitting Batman against Wil E Coyote and Hal dealing with Duck Dodgers.
          Find myself relying more and more on old dvds and The More-Ancient-Than-Dirt Movies Channel.
