We’ve been hearing a lot about the duelling Quicksilvers of both Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. While Singer’s already cast the role in the latter film, we’ve finally received confirmation regarding Whedon’s speedy do-gooder/do-badder. ¬† TheWrap is confirming that Kick-Ass and Godzilla actor Aaron Johnson will indeed play the villain turned Avenger in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The story also seemingly confirms Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. Samuel L. Jackson had recently said in an interview his Old Boy co-star was set for the role. However, it hadn’t been officially announced yet. James Spader will play the title villain in the sequel and it’s unknown if there will be a connection with the two siblings.

Johnson is coming off a successful run in the Kick-Ass franchise. Which by all accounts has been embraced by the comic book community. His next fray into genre territory ¬†will be in Legendary’s Godzilla remake from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters). That will also star Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston. There’s a a bit of hope that Whedon will try to give Quicksilver more screen time than his doppelganger in Days of Future Past, since the X-Men film is already at capacity with mutant cameos. A bit of doubt lingers of how much Evan Peters will actually be in that movie.
