Aaron Taylor Johnson On Playing Quicksilver In AVENGERS 2: "We'll See"

The Kick-Ass actor has already confirmed that he's met with Joss Whedon, and now he says he's "flattered to have been offered to be one of The Avengers", but it doesn't sound like it's a done deal just yet. He also discusses the character and his relationship with his sister, Wanda.

Aaron Taylor Johnson has begun to open up a bit about his potential casting as Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver in Marvel's The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, but in this interview with Bleeding Cool the young actor gets pretty in-depth about it. He's already revealed that he's met with Marvel and director Joss Whedon, but now he confirms that he has indeed been offered the role and discusses the character and his place in the team. It sounds like Johnson is waiting to see how much meat Whedon will put on Quicksilver's bones before committing to play him.



"Firstly, I’m flattered to have been offered to be one of The Avengers. Honestly, I think it’s one of the best fucking compliments you can have, to be part of that gang, for sure. For me, it’s always about character, so if you haven’t got the basis of something to grab hold of in the personality, you’re lost. It doesn’t matter if he’s got a fucking great power it’s always about what’s going through that guy’s mind. That character, him and his sister have been abandoned by his mother and father, they’re from Eastern Europe and they look out for each other, they’ve struggled through life. There’s already so much there, and then there’s thousands of comic books to go dive into to get that character, and that’s what you work on really. That piece is such an ensemble that you have to find how that character can really stand out, not only amongst movie stars but iconic superheroes. He’s such a small piece that you don’t just jump onto a job like that and put the suit on, you really need to have some backstory and a mindset for that character, so we’ll keep working on it and we’ll see."
