Avengers: Age of Ultron
Tonight's Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe special didn't blow too many minds as it preempted Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the hourlong Marvel
movie commercial special did succeed in revealing concept art of two characters fans have been waiting to see for awhile. Get a look at Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver's (played by Aaron Johnson) potential costume designs from Avengers: Age of Ultron -- plus Iron Man battling the Hulk in his Hulkbuster armor -- after the cut.

We've known that James Spader will star as the titular evil Tony Stark-created artificial intelligence of Avengers: Age of Ultron for months, but what we didn't know is that the evil robot's son would also be joining the fray. That's right, The Vision is set to join the film, which begins production next month, as played by actor Paul Bettany -- AKA The voice of Jarvis in the Iron Man films.

A day after Samuel L. Jackson let the cat out of the bag that Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, Latino Review is reporting that Wanda Maximoff's brother Pietro, a.k.a. Quicksilver, has been cast, too.
The speedster will reportedly be played by Aaron Johnson, who already has a superhero pedigree with his starring role in the Kick-Ass franchise. This marks the second actor to be cast in the Quicksilver role -- essentially concurrently -- as Evan Peters is set to star as the same character in Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Rumors have been swirling around for a few months that Elizabeth Olsen, the non-twin who has earned some major cred in movies such as Martha Marcy May Marlene and the upcoming Oldboy remake, would be taking on the role of the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Now, thanks to Samuel L. Jackson and some helpful parentheticals from the Wall Street Journal, we know for sure she'll be taking on the role of Wanda Maximoff.
The news that James Spader would play Ultron in the upcoming Avengers sequel was about as well received as any casting news for a comic book film has any hope of being in the social media age. Still, the announcement did leave some wondering how exactly Spader would be playing the role. Would he simply be a voice actor or would the Emmy-winner be performing on set in some capacity? In an interview with Inquirer Entertainment, Spader puts the question to rest.
