‘Kick-Ass’ Star Aaron Johnson Joins ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ As Quicksilver

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.

Do you want to visit the set of the Avengers: Age of Ultron, as the personal guest of writer and director Joss Whedon?

If James Spader couldn't play Ultron in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, no one could, according to director Joss Whedon.

The actor was Whedon's "first an only choice" for the role, he told Marvel's Web show The Watcher, which has got to make anyone else who auditioned for it feel like a real chump.

Faith Erin Hicks’ Journal Comics Chronicle Her SDCC Experience

FEH

Faith Erin Hicks' 2013 Comic-Con trip was very different from her first. Five years ago she took a "quintessential broke SDCC trip," and this year she was a special guest of the show. Like many in her situation would be, the creator of Friends With Boys and Demonology 101 was in a bit of disbelief about the difference in her experience five years later, so much so that she decided to chronicle her time at 2013 Comic-Con  in a series of journal comics. The entire thing is charming and sincere, particularly the parts where she meets Joss Whedon (an idol of hers and the inspiration behind Demonology 101) and the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender, who actually remember Hicks and are familiar with her work, a revelation that causes her head to explode. (Editors Note: Her head did not literally explode).

Agent Coulson Won’t Appear In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron,’ Says Joss Whedon

Clark-Gregg

Somewhere along the line, Agent Coulson became the breakout star of the Marvel film universe. Appearing in nearly every Marvel Studios film from the first Iron Man up to Avengers, Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, grew in popularity in a way that very few likely imagined. All this has culminated in Coulson being one of the stars of the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series from ABC. So while the character will be getting even more screen time on television this fall, one place you likely won't see him, according to director Joss Whedon, is in the newly titled Avengers: Age of Ultron film.

Saturday night at Marvel's "Marvel Studios" panel, Avengers director Joss Whedon came on stage to announce to fans in attendance that the sequel to last summer's blockbuster film would be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news was met with excitement from people in attendance, as well as speculation as to whether or not the film would be an adaptation of the recent Age of Ultron miniseries from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Bryan Hitch and Carlos Pacheco. Whedon quickly dispelled any such notions before Comic-Con was even over, definitively stating that "We're doing our own version of the origin story for Ultron."
