Aaron Taylor-Johnson Confirms Avengers Talks
Kick-Ass star admits he has met Joss Whedon to discuss Quicksilver role...
The star of Kick-Ass could be graduating from the tongue-in-cheek graphic novel adaptation to a mega-budget Marvel Studios movie, he has confirmed.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson admitted in an interview with Collider that he had met director Joss Whedon to discuss the role of Pietro Maximoff (aka Quicksilver) in The Avengers 2.
He said: "I feel really flattered and honoured that they came to me for that role.
"I sat down with Joss, I think he's awesome, I sat down with the guys at Marvel and they're also great. I think it'd be interesting."
And the 23-year-old also spoke to MTV directly about the role in more detail.
"The thing to think about is he's an abandoned child, him and his sister are abandoned in Eastern Europe.
"There's more character aspect that I'm interested in than the power aspect... you've gotta have something that you can relate to."
Whedon recently vowed that Scarlett Johansson will get a prominent role in the sequel.
