With an Avengers sequel on the way next year, it’s only logical that director Joss Whedon wanted to introduce more heroes from the comic book mythology to help bolster the crew’s impressive lineup. But instead of going for fan favorites like Namor or Black Panther, Marvel went for two characters who are somewhat obscure to casual fans: Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.
In an odd twist of fate, Quicksilver will show up in both Avengers: Age of Ultron and X-Men: Days of Future Past, despite two separate studios owning the rights to the character. When the first look at X-Men’s version of Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters, hit the Internet, fans came down hard on the character’s costume, claiming the Avengers version would be far superior. Well, today set photos of the filming of Age of Ultron hit the web, and, let’s just say the character, played here by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, doesn’t fare too much better.
Take a look at Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch and Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver in the images below, courtesy of Screen Crush.
