Aaron Taylor-Johnson to play Quicksilver

Marvel wants Aaron Taylor-Johnson to play Quicksilver instead.

10 Jun – Marvel has their eyes on the English actor to play Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's highly anticipated sequel. As of now, the decision has not been officially made but Johnson is the frontrunner for this sought-after role.

Making her debut with Quicksilver is his twin sister Scarlet Witch. The two new characters are twins whose father is the "X-Men" villain, Magneto.

However, if realized, Johnson's casting may cause an inconsistency as his "Kick-Ass" co-star, Evan Peters, has already been casted as Quicksilver in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past". Peters will not be reprising his role as Todd in "Kick-Ass 2".

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is currently in high demand, with roles in the crime thriller film "Savages", the upcoming "Kick-Ass 2" and currently filming remake "Godzilla" under his belt.
