If you’ve seen the summer mega blockbuster ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ you both know how Quicksilver looked and where they went with his story line but Marvel had a very different idea for him in mind at one point. Of course there are some spoiler’s here for the swan song of Joss Whedon‘s work, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it you may want to turn back now. Of course with a nearly $190 million opening, I have a feeling that most of the genre loving fans who also visit our site have probably seen the movie now.
Still with me? Good! Recently Aaron Taylor-Johnson sat down and spoke about his all too short of a sting as one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and what could have been had he not shuffled off this mortal coil. In fact the question he received was if there was an alternate version of the script where he ended up living and became an Avenger.
“It’s [the] Marvel universe. It was very much our intention to kind of go the way we did. There was a costume designed for whether… if I didn’t [die]. Which was fucking really cool. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’
I’m not sure if I really can really go down that realm, but you know, yeah, it was definitely an alternative, that I think they had to play with. But, it was very much set from the very beginning, and Joss had in mind to tell the story that he told… and I was very game for that, as well, because I think it really gives [the movie] sort of an emotional twist to it. A surprise.”
So a “real cool” uniform that we’ll never see him. Of course, if Agent Coulson has proven anything it is that even regular humans can live on in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. While I’ve been hoping that they would continue with the Ultimate Marvel Universe’s tradition of the dead staying dead, there are two major possibilities that could lead to his resurrection, even if temporary.
Let’s take a look at a few ways we could see Quicksilver once more hit the big screen shall we?
The first is his own sister Wanda Maximoff or the Scarlet Witch. In the comics, she is one of the most powerful mutants to exist, or was before her mutant genes were recently retconned to make her something else entirely. However, in the height of her power she both created an alternate reality where mutants ruled the Earth and finished that by uttering “no more mutants” and nearly depowering the entire mutant population. Needless to say even if she can’t bring the dead back to life in the Cinematic Universe there is always the chance she could reimagine him to a near realistic state.
Of course on the other side of the coin we’re quickly racing towards ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and in almost any instance of the Infinity Gauntlet being forged the wearer has the power to kill and bring the dead back to life on a whim.
Bonus points for thinking they might have gotten him to the doctor that can regrow tissue before he went brain dead and used that as a way to keep the character alive.
Between these two alone, I wouldn’t completely count out a further appearance of Quicksilver in a Marvel movie, I just wouldn’t bet on it actually happening. We all know Whedon wasn’t happy that Coulson came back from the great beyond and if another of his deaths was retconned, he might just go a little postal on Marvel Studios.
What do you think True Believers, was this the true end of Quicksilver? If they did bring him back which of those three options do you think would be the likely cause? What uniform from the comics do you think his suit would have been based off of? Share our thoughts below!
