It’s official, after months of rumors and speculations, Aaron Taylor-Johnson has signed on to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. He will be playing Quicksilver, the son of Magneto and the brother to Scarlet Witch who Samuel L. Jackson confirmed would be played by Elisabeth Olsen.
I don’t know who else is left to be cast, but the crew that Joss Whedon has put together is fantastic and I could not be more excited for this movie. Whedon is writing and directing the film, which Kevin Feige is producing. The only real question now is, how will Taylor-Johnson look with silver hair?
Taylor-Johnson is best known for being the titular character in the “Kick-Ass” movies and appearing in “Anna Karenina.” He’ll next appear in Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” remake.
Taylor-Johnson is repped by WME.
