And Marvel Studios have already cast their own Quicksilver.

I don't have TLS stand on disk. As I recall, in the movie, the character was only called Trask. I don't remember if the end credits used the name Bolivar at all.

I still think its a little surprising that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Quicksilver in the Avengers, rather than this - there's the Matthew Vaughn/Jane Goldman/Mark Millar connection.

Evan Peters has the same connections you mentioned.

According to IMDB, the character is simply "Trask".

Wow, until you mentioned that, prompting me to go look at IMDB, I hadn't realised (or had forgotten) that Peters was also in Kick-Ass.

I think Evan Peters is more suited for the role of Quicksilver than Aaron Johnson.

I think he resembles the comic-book character more (and in a recent interview said his hair will be silver) but I'm sure Johnson will be perfectly suitable.

It'll be really interesting to see how Singer approaches the character and how Whedon approaches the character.

I am more interested in Quicksilver in X-Men. Because he started out with there. It will add to Magneto's character to see his son. Plus most of the original villains and heroes from the 60s and 70s were introduced in the existing films in which take place much later. He is one of the few untouched characters they can introduce in the past.

I'm interested in both versions, and I definitely see Pietro in Aaron Johnson. From the little that Johnson has stated about his version, it seems Joss is pulling from the Ultimate version of the characters in order to separate the two.

I do not know anything bout his Ultimate version. Looking it up I can not see how that would fit into the Avengers?
