Aaron Taylor-Johnson Briefly Talks Playing 'Quicksilver' In THE AVENGERS Sequel

Hinting that last month's 'early talks' have become a finalized deal, Godzilla star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has talked a bit about joining Marvel's The Avengers 2, filling the role of Quicksilver! Check it out!

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.
