Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver castings confirmed

Just days after we learn that Elizabeth Olsen has been cast as the Scarlet Witch we now know that Aaron Taylor Johnson will be playing her sibling Quicksilver.

Aaron Johnson said in a Total Film interview

"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. 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. 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 fucking quick".
