"Just before I started Godzilla, I met Joss Whedon," revealed Aaron Taylor-Johnson to I Am Rogue of how The Avengers writer/director approached him to be in the sequel, Age of Ultron. "He said to me, 'Do you want to be in Avengers 2? There is a super hero I’m thinking of for you.' The thing for me was for him, 'Why add any more super heroes to this thing?' He said, 'No, there are these two characters that I want to bring in to like [frick] with the Avengers and not be just an add on.' He told me a little bit about the writing and I said that the only reason I would want to do it is if it is a character that can still stand out." The English actor continued, "You know, you’ve got five of the most awesome super heroes, ten I suppose, there are about ten Avengers now, and they are all movie stars. You’ve got such a huge cast, what the hell difference is it going to make if I come on the scene? So it was the character and that took about a year of going back and forth about it. It took a while but I’m super happy to be in that one."
Once again, Elizabeth Olsen addressed reuniting with her on-screen husband in Godzilla, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, to now playing his sister in Avengers: Age of Ultron. "We have a much more closer connection in Avengers actually," she reassured. "Because we play these twin brother and sister that never leave each other’s side. In Godzilla, the whole point is that we are apart. So it’s totally different, but nice to have known him and his family, and him as a person as well as an actor before doing that." Taylor-Johnson added, "It was like, lets try and make these characters so different. And it was cool to be playing Eastern European as well. So we are trying to embrace that." Aaron Taylor-Johnson's mention that the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be Eastern European in Age of Ultron prompted I Am Rogue to ask him if he and Elizabeth Olsen are using accents while filming. "Yeah," he confirmed, "but they might [frick]ing ADR it out at the end, so who knows?" The Godzilla pair went on to confirm not only that they'll be shooting the Avengers sequel through the summer, but also that they'll be attending San Diego Comic-Con this July for the highly-anticipated movie. "I’ve done Comic-Con before but going there as an Avenger is a whole new thing," said Taylor-Johnson. Back to Elizabeth Olsen, she was asked about her first appearance as the Scarlet Witch in last month's Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie. While the Joss Whedon-directed mid-credit scene served as a great teaser for what's to come in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Olsen says she didn't read any of the feedback. "I just have one friend that works at Bad Robot, so she is on all these blogs all the time, and she’ll send me her favorites ones," she said. "She only sends me the good stuff but I like that people were stoked about our characters, and everyone was like, 'What are they? Who are they? What’s their excuse going to be because they can’t talk about X-Men?'" What do you think?
