So the deal is signed and we now know who will play Quicksilver in Avengers 2 – Age of Ultron.

Earlier this week Sam Jackson confirmed that Elisabeth Olsen will be playing The Scarlet Witch and now we know who will be playing her brother Quicksilver.

Aaron Johnson cast as QuickSilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron and here is what he had to say about the character in a recent interview with Total Film.

“There’s years – over 50 years – of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that. Him and his sister [Scarlet Witch] have been abandoned by their parents and their father, and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance – emotionally she’s the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He’s very overprotective physically – he doesn’t want anyone touching her. He has real anger frustration – I like that. I always thought it’d be quite funny if you saw him eating loads and people asked him why and he’d explain it’s because he’s burning so much energy all the time. Or ideas that you’d see him come back round – but he’s already nipped out and got his lunch somewhere else. He just got bored – his attention span is so fucking quick.”

And when talking about his mindset and approach for playing Quicksilver he said this,

“That’s what we’re in talks about really, right now – how I could become that character and not feel forced. I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong… it just doesn’t work like that.”
