Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

It looks like Kick-Ass and the “other” Olsen sister will be playing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of UltronLatino Review has posted confirmation that Aaron Johnson will be playing Quicksilver, while the sexy Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch. Many of you are familiar with Johnson for his solid work in the Kick-Ass movies, while a few of you are familiar with Olsen for not being Mary-Kate or Ashley.

It will be interesting to see how Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are portrayed. In the proper Marvel Universe, they have a rich and storied history. The pair have been heroes and villains several times over. The Scarlet Witch is most famous for decimating the world’s mutant population with a single wish. In the Ultimate Marvel Universe, the two have a racy history where they have an incestuous relationship. In both cases, their father is Magneto, a character that’s currently licensed to another company for movie purposes. While I understand the legalities of not having Magneto involved in the characterization of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the fanboy in me will be irritated.

I’m curious to see how Johnson handles Quicksilver. The actor was lovable goof in Kick-Ass. Quicksilver, on the other hand, is a lovable prick. I haven’t seen Johnson in anything other than the Kick-Ass movies, so I have no idea if he can pull off that Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver’s real name) arrogance.

As for Olsen, I’m totally being a male by saying that I’m less concerned with her portrayal of the Scarlet Witch and more concerned about seeing her in the character’s famous Medieval swimsuit. In my head, a scantily clad Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen will have outstanding scenes with  the skin-tight leather wearing Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson. It will look something like this.

Anyway, what do you think of Aaron John and Elizabeth Olsen as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch?

  1. Latino Review makes claims like this all the time that turn out to be false.

    Grain of salt.
