THERE ARE GOING TO BE BIG SPOILERS IN HERE IF YOU HAVE YET TO SEE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
OH GOOD, YOU’VE SEEN THE MOVIE THEN?
Ok, so we can’t write the story if we don’t just say it… Quicksivler, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, dies at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
But… the last we see him is he’s lying on the floor beside Hawkeye and it’s never talked about again (yes, we know Hawkeye’s child has Pietro as a middle name, but still…). So we have been wondering if we might get an Agent Coulson-type event where he isn’t truly dead?
Well, the actor has been chatting about the role and revealed some interesting stuff. Like the fact that Marvel had a second outfit created in case he didn’t die… and Joss Whedon did want him to be part of The New Avengers team we saw at the end of the movie: ” I thoroughly enjoyed working on [this movie], and would love to do, I would love to be doing more movies with the guys at Marvel. Maybe there will be some case where that might happen. Again, I’m not sure, but…”
“I’d love to find what that loophole is, because I think they’re the best guys I’ve worked with in a long time, and yeah, you know, it’s cool.”
We’ll not lie, we at FTN thought that Dr Helen Cho (Claudia Kim) might be a get-out-of-death-free card for the character and here chamber that created The Vision. And there’s always Project T.A.H.I.T.I. which brought Phil Coulson back.
Whedon said that someone had to die in order for the war with Ultron to really feel like it had consequences but don’t forget, even though Whedon’s not impressed (here), no-one ever really dies in comics. Or, possibly, their movies…
