Aaron Taylor-Johnson praat over de rol van Quicksilver

Kick-Ass acteur Aaron Taylor-Johnson is al enige tijd favoriet voor de rol van Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hoewel hij nog niet getekend heeft, liet de acteur zich al enige keren uit over de aantrekkingskracht van deze rol. Hij vertelde:

“There’s years – over 50 years – of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that. Him and his sister [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.”

Johnson sprak over de relatie tussen het personage en diens zus Scarlet Witch:

“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.”

Hij sprak ook over de kleine karaktereigenschappen die hij al bedacht heeft voor het personage:

“He has real anger frustration – I like that. I always thought it’d be quite funny if you saw him eating loads and people asked him why and he’d explain it’s because he’s burning so much energy all the time. Or ideas that you’d see him come back round – but he’s already nipped out and got his lunch somewhere else. He just got bored – his attention span is so quick.”

Johnson zegt dat hij de rol wil benaderen in een “out there” performance, niet veel anders dan zijn Kick-Ass medespelers Jim Carrey en Nicolas Cage. Hij zei:

“That’s what we’re in talks about really, right now – how I could become that character and not feel forced. I might not look right with white hair, and the accent may be wrong… it just doesn’t work like that.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron is te zien vanaf 1 mei 2015.
