Aaron Taylor-Johnson Being Eyed to Play Quicksilver in AVENGERS 2

It looks like Kick-Ass may try his hand at another comic book superhero. One with powers other than a lot of heart and courage, this time. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who was also seen in "Savages" and "Anna Karenina", is being eyed to play Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's "Avengers 2".

Of course we learned a few weeks back that Bryan Singer will also be utilizing the character of Quicksilver in his "X-Men: Days of Future Past", and that Evan Peters will be playing him. Our hope of continuity and getting to finally see characters that live in the same universe together, like The Avengers and X-Men, was crushed a little bit, as both studios have to adhere to certain rules in order to include the character. Fox cannot mention that Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch were ever Avengers, and Disney can't mention that the siblings are Magneto's children or any mutant references at all.

Actress Saoirse Ronan was the prototype of who Disney envisioned would play Wanda/Scarlet Witch, therefore making her and Taylor-Johnson twin siblings if they both locked the roles. While they don't necessarily look related, they both do have sparkling blue eyes, so perhaps with some movie magic and a lot of make-up, they can share a resemblance. Both are very talented actors, that much is certain.

What do you think of Taylor-Johnson playing Quicksilver? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Avengers 2" will hit AMC Theatres in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
