There are major SPOILERS for Infinity War below, so read ahead at your own risk. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was spotted in Atlanta on the set of Avengers 4. After the events of Infinity War, it appears Quicksilver may be returning to the fold. The character was first introduced in Age of Ultron and killed off to help the story arc of his sister, Wanda. Plus, Joss Whedon, who directed the movie, has a fondness of introducing characters and then killing them off. But it seems that Quicksilver will make a quick return in Avengers 4.

AVENGERS 4 could include a major dead hero and villain after British star Aaron Taylor Johnson was reportedly spotted filming on the Atlanta set. Avengers Infinity War has just released the new trailer and fans are already looking to Avengers 4.

The second part of the Infinity Gauntlet saga is currently filming in Atlanta and reports and photographs from the set have sent fans into a frenzy.

There have already been surprising images of Iron Man, Thor and Hulk that seem to confirm a major theory that could potentially bring back any formerly dead hero or villain from the entire franchise. Now a much-missed character who was shockingly killed off in a previous movie has also been spotted on set while other actors who played fallen characters have been popping up in social media posts with Avengers stars.

What is going on? Could the Marvel timeline get any more tangled?

Spanish fan site Marvel Spoiler Oficial is announcing sightings of Quicksilver. The report said: “More witnesses from the filming in Atlana report that they saw Aaron Taylor-Johnson on the Avengers 4 set.”

The brother of Scarlet Witch was unexpectedly killed in Age of Ultron so how can he possibly be back? Although the site stresses that this is “just a rumour” it certainly ties in with the increasingly likely idea that Avengers 4 will feature a major alternate timeline plot.

Similar reports also place Crossbones star Frank Grillo in Atlanta with the cast. The mercenary was killed in Captain America Cvil War.

Shots of Chris Hemswoth as Thor have shown him sporting long hair which means the new scenes being filmed must take place before the events of Thor Ragarok when his famous locks are cropped off.

CAA has been negotiating the release of the rights of James Frey’s 2003 book from Warners, and the package is expected to be launched at the upcoming American Film Market.

The big-screen adaptation of James Frey’s best-seller A Million Little Pieces is being reassembled, this time as a team-up between husband-and-wife duo Aaron Johnson and Sam Taylor-Johnson.

The 2003 book was once one of the hottest properties in town but became radioactive after Frey was exposed for inventing or embellishing parts of the story that was originally dubbed a memoir. Warner Bros. won the book in a bidding war in 2003 and set it up with producer Brad Pitt and his then-Plan B partners Jennifer Aniston and Brad Grey. Frey wrote the first version of the screenplay.

But then Frey was outed by The Smoking Gun, and both he and the book became toxic, complete with an Oprah Winfrey takedown after she felt duped by the book, which Winfrey selected for her book club.

But no one ever disputed the power of the story Frey wrote about a young man who awakens on an airplane to Chicago, with no recollection of his injuries or of how he ended up on the plane. He then heads to a rehab and begins his journey to sobriety. And the Taylor-Johnsons saw the appeal of the substance abuse tale and began adapting a screenplay earlier this year in which Aaron will star, with Sam directing.

The pair previously collaborated on the film Nowhere Boy, which chronicled John Lennon’s early years.

CAA has been negotiating the release of the rights from Warners, and the package is expected to be launched at the upcoming American Film Market, with Sierra/Affinity (Atomic Blonde) poised to handle international sales.

In a May interview with THR, Sam Taylor-Johnson talked about a secret project that she and her husband were working on together, saying, “We are already parents that run our house, so when we work together it’s the best.”

Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed the adaptation of another mega-best-seller, Fifty Shades of Grey, most recently helmed episodes of the short-lived Netflix series Gypsy. She is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney David Weber.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson starred in the Kick-Ass movies, played Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron and starred in Godzilla. But he also has plenty of non-tentpole work on his résumé, with recent roles including those in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals and Doug Liman’s war thriller The Wall. He is now shooting Outlaw King, David MacKenzie’s follow-up to his breakout crime thriller, Hell or Hight Water. He is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Sloane Offer.

British star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has revealed that his latest war movie is so distressing he may never let his children see it.

The 27-year-old spent time training with US military personnel to prepare for his role as a sniper’s spotter in The Wall. It sees him play a beleaguered soldier who is pinned down by a crack-shot Iraqi.

Particularly disturbing scenes see him dressing a wound to his knee as he is tormented by the enemy sniper over his radio earpiece.

The actor has two daughters with director wife Sam Taylor-Johnson — Wylda, six, and five-year-old Romy. He told the Standard: “There are some things that you never want to show your family and it is probably too distressing for them to see their father suffering so much on screen. “Maybe they will discover it on their own one day when they’re older, but I obviously know that some of my work is a little too much for children.”

The movie is unique as it is the first ever “spec script” to be commissioned by Amazon, and was shot on a shoe-string budget of $3 million. A spec script is a story that has not been commissioned by a studio and is usually an unsolicited piece written by an unknown writer. The Wall was directed by Doug Liman, whose CV includes The Bourne Identity, Mr & Mrs Smith and Jumper, and also stars WWE wrestler John Cena.

Taylor-Johnson added: “I prepared by spending months with marines and former war veterans, and I did some military training in Arkansas.

“We have shown the film to lots of ex-military personnel and they have praised it for its accuracy. John plays his character perfectly.”

EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Taylor-Johnson is being set to co-star as James Douglas in Outlaw King, the David Mackenzie-directed Netflix feature that stars Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce in the War for Scottish Independence. Pine reunites with his Hell or High Water helmer in a package Netflix landed in April for its burgeoning feature film slate.

Douglas is a storied figure in Scottish history, and from what I’m reading, it’s hard to imagine Robert the Bruce would have succeeded in beating back England King Edward I’s armies if he didn’t have Douglas as his right-hand man. The son of the first noble to support William Wallace when the figure memorialized in Braveheart fomented the first movement toward independence from the English, Douglas saw his father’s lands given away, and after being denied them by the English king, he joined Robert the Bruce as an outcast properly motivated to avenge his loss. Together, they learned guerrilla fighting tactics that led to years of surprise attacks, sacked castles and, finally, independence. Gillian Berrie, Steve Golin and Richard Brown are producing.

Taylor-Johnson is coming off a scary performance in the Tom Ford-directed Nocturnal Animals, which won him the Golden Globe and got him a BAFTA nomination, and the Doug Liman-directed drama The Wall. He’s repped by UTA, Brillstein Partners and Sloane Offer.

It is one of Hollywood’s most stable, albeit unlikely, marriages.

Now Aaron Taylor-Johnson has revealed that he is so engrossed in his home life with wife Sam that he often considers quitting acting altogether.

The Nocturnal Animals star, 26, shares two daughters – Wylda Rae, six, and Romy Hero, four – with the artist-turned-director, and admits his most important role to date is fatherhood. In a brooding shoot for Mr Porter magazine, the hunky actor says: ‘I get more fulfilment from being a father than I do from being an actor. I’m still constantly wanting to give it up.’

Aaron – who first met his wife as she took the helm of Beatles biopic Nowhere Boy in 2009 – reveals to the magazine that he relishes his time away from the film set and spending time at home, cooking for his kids and working on the garden. He and Sam are set to work together again on the big screen adaptation of a mystery book they have bought the rights to.

But despite their millions and access to the good life, Aaron is adamant he finds happiness in the small stuff – romantic gestures to his partner, who he says he feels completely in ‘sync’ with. Talking about Valentine’s Day in the Taylor-Johnson household, he said: ‘Mamma got a dozen on Valentine’s Day. The other girls got half a dozen each.’

And when it comes to ongoing interest in the 26 year age gap between the couple, Aaron is adamant he pays it no mind.

‘I don’t really analyse our relationship,’ he continues. ‘I just know that it works.

‘I just feel secure and loved and safe. We have this very deep connection. We’re just in synch.’
