Aaron Taylor-Johnson Discloses Quicksilver Negotiation Points

Considering Aaron Taylor-Johnson still isn’t confirmed to play Quicksilver in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the guy sure knows a lot about the silver-haired speedster.

“There’s years — over 50 years — of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that,” the Kick-Ass star tells Total Film. “Him and his sister [the 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.”

Taylor-Johnson’s comments sure make it sound like he’s ready to commit to Joss Whedon’s sequel. Even the actor admits that he and marvel are “in talks,” going so far as to detail some of those points of discussion.

“That’s what we’re in talks about really, right now — how I could become that character and not feel forced,” he said. “I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong …  it just doesn’t work like that. It’s about — unless you’re Jim Carrey or Nic Cage and go, ‘This is the character,’ people go ‘OK, OK …’ When people haven’t been shown your range like that, then they’re a bit more skeptical — they may not want you to push the boundaries in that way. But that’s what I’m interested in as an actor.”

    He didn’t detail any points of a negotiation.

    My thoughts exactly

  • nickmarino

    I think he means over 49 years, not 50.

  • Kevin Christensen

    Yah, what an ass he is for rounding up.

    The first time I read it, I thought this part meant they were negotiating: ““That’s what we’re in talks about really, right now — how I could become that character and not feel forced,” he said. “I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong … it just doesn’t work like that.”

    Then after reading it again I realized he was saying those _weren’t_ talking points. Maybe there was some confusion.
