It appears that Quicksilver WILL be making an appearance in the upcoming “Marvel’s The Avengers 2″ movie. But who is the front-runner for the part? According to TheWrap, Marvel wants “Savages” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson to play the role of Quicksilver in Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated blockbuster sequel.
However, merely 2 weeks ago, ”X-Men” director Bryan Singer announced that Evan Peters would play Quicksilver in his comic book blockbuster, ”X-Men: Days of Future Past.” It is possible for Quicksilver to appear in both franchises, here’s how: ’In Marvel’s “X-Men” comic books, Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch were the evil offspring of Magneto; as they grew up, the pair joined forces with The Avengers team to fight for good.’
Marvel president Kevin Feige explained, “If they want to use them in the ‘X-Men’ movies they could, if we want to use them in the ‘Avengers’ movie we could.” Quicksilver is a mutant known for his speed, and currently Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the first pick for the Avengers movie. No word on who will play Scarlet Witch though.
Who do you think would make a good Quicksilver?
