Quicksilver Revealed – Avengers 2 Edition

Photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron have revealed that film’s version of the Marvel speedster, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Notable is that in the Disney/Marvel Studios version, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren’t wearing traditional superhero costumes so much as ordinary street clothes that call to mind their comic book looks.

Back in January, Fox released their version of the character from X-Men: Days of Future Past on the cover of Empire Magazine. They took a considerably different approach to the character design.

More photos at The Beat, including Scarlet Witch and others.

So, what do you think of this take on the character?

Update: Here’s a link to some concept art for the movie.

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.
