The Wrap reports that Taylor-Johnson has officially worked out his schedule to promote Godzilla and is joining the cast as Quicksilver, the super-fast superhero. Marvel has not officially confirmed the news, but The Wrap sources its report to “an individual familiar with the sequel.” This casting has been rumored since the summer, so it’s likely true.
Quicksilver is is the twin brother of the Scarlet Witch, who will be played by Elizabeth Olsen. He is also an X-Man and will be played by Taylor-Johnson’s Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
