Aaron Johnson For Avengers 2 Quicksilver

Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson may be playing Quicksilver, one of the new superheroes set to join the cast for Avengers 2. A staple of many of the Marvel comic book story-lines involving both The Avengers and X-Men.

Confusingly the character will actually already be featuring in the newest X-Men movie Days of Future Past, with Johnson’s Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters already cast by director Bryan Singer. However due to copyright issues separating the X-Men franchise at Fox from the rest of the Marvel universe, it’s looking like Joss Whedon will be creating his own version of the character with another actor for Avengers 2.

Quicksilver is blessed with the ability to run at super human speeds and although for now the studio isn’t commenting on the casting Johnson is strongly rumored to be the current front-runner for the Avengers sequel role.
