Yesterday Samuel L. Jackson dropped the dime on Elizabeth Olsen’s casting as the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, and today it sounds like Olsen will be joined by her Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the Witch’s twin-brother, the super-speeding Quicksilver.
This spoiler news comes from Latino-Review, who says that Taylor-Johnson closed a deal with Marvel Studios to appear in the film. If this is the case, the news isn’t exactly surprising. Earlier this year, when it was revealed that Quicksilver was a character in the film, Taylor-Johnson was one of the first names associated with the part. Things hit a fever pitch around San Diego Comic-Con, where Taylor-Johnson was asked directly if he was playing Quicksilver, and he did not entirely deny the idea.
A word of caution, of course, all casting rumors are just rumors until they’re officially confirmed by Marvel, but for now it seems that The Avengers have their (not)mutant wonder twins.
