Kick-Ass Star To Play Quicksilver In Avengers 2?
Aaron Johnson-Taylor claimed to be at the top of the list for Marvel role...
The 22-year-old Brit is claimed by The Wrap to be the frontrunner for the role in Joss Whedon's eagerly awaited superhero sequel.
Quicksilver is the son of villainous mutant Magneto in the Marvel Comics universe - and will be introduced to Avengers 2 along with his sister Scarlet Witch.
Coincidentally, Johnson-Taylor's Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters was recently cast as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
The Bryan Singer-directed X-Men movie is being produced by 20th Century Fox under a separate licence from Marvel.
