Aaron Taylor-Johnson is already a superhero in Kick-Ass 2, but will he become an Avenger? We got a chance to ask him about all those pesky rumors that he’s going to play Quicksilver in Avengers 2 and it sounds like it might be happening.
Ever since director Joss Whedon let it slip that The Avengers 2 will include classic superheroes Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, there’s been a fever pitch of speculation that Marvel’s two dream actors for those roles are Saoirse Ronan and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The question though was, would either of the indie darlings even want to be in The Avengers 2?
“To be part of The Avengers is awesome, man,” Taylor-Johnson said excitedly. “I mean, why wouldn’t you want to be?”
While Taylor-Johnson didn’t officially confirm his involvement in the superhero sequel, he did definitely allude to the fact that there have been talks.
“You got to look into, like, how I can create that character, and it has to be so far different from anything else,” he explained. “So, that’s what we’re doing really and we’re going to carry on doing that until we can make it possible.”
Hopefully, they do make it possible.
