Chatting with MTV News about Kick-Ass 2 with co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aaron Taylor-Johnson was pressed for the first time about being Marvel's top contender for the Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver role in The Avengers 2. "I don't think I can talk about that, but it really is an exciting prospect," Johnson said, indicating that the casting is a done deal. When asked if he was reading up on the character, he added, "[QuickSilver] has a really interesting character and background. In fact, my wife just went out and bought... it's like a really, really old vintage [comic] with the first time Quicksilver's ever been on the cover." Obviously, Aaron Taylor-Johnson couldn't say much about joining Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but rumor has it Marvel will bring out the full cast of The Avengers 2 tomorrow during its anticipated panel. What do you think?

So far starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, with Kick-Ass actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson in early talks to join, Marvel's The Avengers untitled sequel is written and directed by Joss Whedon, and is scheduled to shoot in the U.K. in February next year for a May 1, 2015, release date.

He's perfect for the role. Just look at his smug face.
LEVITIKUZ - 7/19/2013, 5:15 PM
The big question is will we see Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch do that incest scene or not?
thewonderer - 7/19/2013, 5:18 PM
Very uninspired casting. Kid they got for DOFP looks better.
92Marvel - 7/19/2013, 5:18 PM
I think he will do a great job with Quicksilver
MrCBM56 - 7/19/2013, 5:20 PM
I'll be there tomorrow for the panel! Have to get up REALLY early if I want to get into HALL H.

Draco Malfoy was perfect for QS.

"The big question is will we see Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch do that incest scene or not?"

The big question is will they ever have a Quicksilver article where you don't ask that question?
SageMode - 7/19/2013, 5:23 PM
Prepare for mind to be blown tomorrow. AVENGERS 2 and GOTG news. Too much epicness.
JerBear - 7/19/2013, 5:23 PM
The complete opposite actally. FOX sucks at casting, Aaron is an inspired choice.
92Marvel - 7/19/2013, 5:23 PM
I was watching marvel comic con live video and they mention a secret animation that they will announced tomorrow I bet its guardians of the galaxy carton.

Make Mine Marvels
LEVITIKUZ - 7/19/2013, 5:24 PM
I was just joking about that scene. We all know Singer would probably use it before Whedon.

bretticus21 - 7/19/2013, 5:26 PM
Terrible casting, dare I say, I actually prefer the guy from DOFP.
gamecreatorjj - 7/19/2013, 5:26 PM
Kick-Ass confirmed to bridge gap between Fox and Disney
LucasMend - 7/19/2013, 5:27 PM
what a boring choice for a nice character.
bretticus21 - 7/19/2013, 5:27 PM
@marvelpsycho79 I love how you're keeping score on different posters. Chill out.
dirtygymsocks - 7/19/2013, 5:28 PM
Why would anyone want the Ultimate versions of the twins? That's so sick.
LEVITIKUZ - 7/19/2013, 5:28 PM

My only 3 posts on TASM2



Won't see anymore from me than that. I ain't gonna be made a fool of from JesterTrav.
AlexanderLykins - 7/19/2013, 5:31 PM
So who's Scarlet Witch? Is it Saoirse? Was the other article about her just a ruse?

"Meanwhile,at the DC/WB headquarters....................."

TheAbomination - 7/19/2013, 5:31 PM

LMAO at the pansies that prefer the other guy in that FAUX movie
Lastson609 - 7/19/2013, 5:33 PM
now Blake Lively as Scarlet Witch and we are good to go
TheGambitFreak - 7/19/2013, 5:33 PM
What the hell is wrong with you guys? He's gonna do terrific. He'll look more like Quicksilver than that curly headed sidekick of his that got his ass spanked by Steve Carrell. Can't wait for tomorrow!

thewonderer - 7/19/2013, 5:34 PM
Oh please.

If the actors were switched, you sheep would still praise the Marvel one.

I call it as I see it.
TerminalVoyd - 7/19/2013, 5:36 PM
So basically Quicksilver was the embryo that split in two in the Kick-Ass womb and the fraternal twins were adopted by Fox and Marvel respectively. Ain't that sweet.

And Joss's timing is perfect, given the the shape Johnson got into for Kick-Ass 2. You add the trainers he'll get for Avengers 2 and he'll get paid to be the healthiest he'll ever be in his life.

Hollywood. The ultimate health plan.... while you're working anyway. The debauchery that comes after is your business.

On IGN I ain't a troll. Hell I don't even post on TASM2 news. I'm Zoidberg over there.
TheBeard - 7/19/2013, 5:37 PM
I think the real question is if wolverine is gonna hide in the bushes and watch that shit in the movie...

92Marvel - 7/19/2013, 5:38 PM
Marvel can get lead actor, fox get the nobody on kickass and people didn't even notice him.

TheGambitFreak - 7/19/2013, 5:39 PM
Evan Peters looks like Banshee. Good luck trying to get his Jew-Fro to look remotely close to Quicksilvers.

"Oh please.

Oh shut the hell up troll. YOU are the one that would do that.
