Aaron Taylor-Johnson is trading one superhero franchise for another one. He’s graduated to the big leagues. The 23-year-old English actor has reportedly finalized a deal to play Quicksilver in The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Taylor-Johnson is definitely kick-ass enough to tackle the role. Quicksilver is known for his lightning-fast speed similar to DC Comics’ Flash.
Joining the highly-anticipated sequel as Quicksilver’s sibling Scarlet Witch is Elizabeth Olsen. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sister’s addition was spoiled by Samuel L. Jackson.
Marvel hasn’t made an official announcement, but I expect that to come in the coming days. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015. What do you think of Aaron and Elizabeth joining the franchise? Sound off below.
