If rumors are true, it appears that Kick-Ass star will be joining the (rumored) recently-cast Elizabeth Olsen in The Avengers: Age of Ultron as her Scarlet Witch’s brother, Quicksilver. Obviously, Johnson has experience portraying superheroes on the big screen. However, joining the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be a boon for his young, promising career. Both Olsen and Johnson are up and coming actors whose careers are only just beginning.
Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch are twin siblings and the children of noted X-Men antagonist, Magneto. Quicksilver’s specialty is speed, whereas Scarlet Witch’s mutant powers involve probability manipulation (essentially, casting hexes on reality and those around her). More interestingly, the two are close with their relationship oftentimes bordering on incest.
Production hasn’t officially begun on The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so it may be awhile until the castings are confirmed. However, considering Johnson’s familiarity with superhero films, he would be a great fit to join the ensemble cast.
