Firstly lets get the obligatory SPOILER alert out of the way for the minuscule amount of you that have not seen Avengers: Age of Ultron yet. You’ve had fair warning, so click away now if you don’t want this key scene ruining.
New deleted scenes released by Marvel now give a little more depth to the Quicksilver death scene. Aaron Taylor Johnson’s Quicksilver is seen getting friendly with Sokovian beauty Zrinka (Dominique Provost-Chalkley).
He actually gives her a designer dress from Paris and her Son a ball…yes the very same son that he took a barrage of bullets for. As you will remember Quicksilver meets his demise when he runs to protect Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and the young boy towards the end of movie and receives a body full of ammunition for his trouble.
I can see why these scenes were eventually cut with a reported first cut of 195 minutes. They are nice moments but not integral to the story so it was the right decision to cut them from the already bloated final 142 minute theatrical cut. The scenes would have given a little more impact to this key death scene and some more screen time for this underused character.
I really don’t think I will miss Taylor Johnson’s version of Quicksilver which in all honesty paled in comparison to the fantastic portrayal by his Kick Ass co-star Evan Peters in X-Men: Days of Future Past…maybe Marvel understood this and decided to give Quicksilver an early exit from the MCU.
