Aaron Taylor-Johnson Finally Confirmed for The Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Wrap reports that Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been confirmed to play Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This casting has been rumored since the summer; however, it apparently took a while for him to figure out a schedule to both shoot the movie and promote the upcoming Godzilla reboot. Quicksilver has super speed and is the twin brother of Scarlet Witch, who will be played by Elizabeth Olsen. Quicksilver is Magneto’s kid, so he’ll actually also be featured in X-Men: Days of Future Past, ironically played by Taylor-Johnson’s Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters. Somewhere, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is asking people if they need him to play Quicksilver. Sadly, there have been no takers, yet.
