This post is part of the Age of Ultron Aftermath series.

So, you’ve seen Avengers: Age of Ultron six times, and you’re wondering, ‘what does this mean for my favourite character?’. In this series of articles, we’re going to take a look at where each character has been left, and use what we already know, as well as some speculation, to discuss what the end of Age of Ultron means for each of the Avengers. Needless to say, spoilers ahead for Age of Ultron.

Age of Ultron – What Does it Mean For Quicksilver?

Quicksilver died so there’s nothing to say. Right? RIGHT? Perhaps, but I have a few theories as to how he might survive, or be brought back. The first one is the most obvious, but perhaps least likely. When Maria Hill is talking about him for the first time, she describes him as having ‘fast metabolism’ among other things, basically showing that everything about him, internal and external is super fast. Could this include some sort of healing factor? We also see him shake off a bullet wound as if nothing had happened earlier in the film. As I said, this might not be very likely, because when he does ‘die’, his sister Scarlet Witch very much acts as if he has indeed died. Still, it’s not completely out of the question.

Next up is a slightly less likely theory, but still not out of the question. In the comics, Scarlet Witch has been shown to will people into existence. Whilst it might have been her children on the page, it could well be her brother in the films. Like I said, it seems unlikely that they’ll go down this route, but it’s not completely out of the question if they do want to bring him back. I personally hope they don’t bring him back, because up to this point in the Marvel universe, there hasn’t been a lot of deaths that have stuck, and if Quicksilver stays dead it could end up meaning more the longer it goes on.

That’s about it for Quicksilver. I personally enjoyed his character a lot in the film, and was surprised to see him go, but at least we’ll be seeing Quicksilver in X-Men: Age of Apocalypse in 2016!

What do you think is next for Quicksilver? Did we miss anything? Share your thoughts in the comments.
