Joss Whedon has met with Aaron Taylor-Johnson about 'Quicksilver'

Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirms Marvel and Joss Whedon has approached him to star in The Avengers: Age of Ultron

It was rumored a few months ago that Marvel and Joss Whedon had been searching new young stars to portray there version of the Maximoff Twins in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Quicksilver and  Scarlet Witch will be refereed to as Pietro and Wanda in the film.

During the press tours for Kick-Ass II Aaron Johnson confirmed he has been approached by Marvel Studios for the role.


Johsnon told MTV:

"The thing to think about is he's an abandoned child, him and his sister are abandoned... they're in Eastern Europe," 
He went on to say...

"There's more character aspect that I'm interested in than the power aspect. And if that's something that you can make work, then there's always... you gotta have something that you can relate to. So when it comes to that, then it's enjoyable. So I don't really care what it is you know. Oh man, [Joss Whedon] is awesome! He's a real dude and I love what he did with the first Avengers. He had a real though task to deal with and I think he put up brilliantly" 

As you can tell he is enthusiastic about the role BUT  has confirmed he signed on the dotted line just yet. Also a FOX/Marvel Studios war started between the rights of the character....Actor Evan Peters who was in Kick-Ass alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirmed at SDCC 13 he is indeed portraying Quicksilver also in FOX's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Another rumor that started was that Marvel Studios had been looking at The Host's Saoirse Ronan as Scarlet Witch....This rumor has yet to be confirmed or denied but since the Johnson rumor turned out to be true the Ronan rumor may have a little more truth to it then previously thought.

X-Men: Days of Futre Past hits May 2014 with The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015
