Following rampant online speculation that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is in talks to play Quicksilver in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the actor spoke to Access Hollywood about the role.
“I think it’s a really interesting character,” the 23-year-old star told Access at the junket for his latest movies, “Kick-Ass 2.”
Though he couldn’t confirm that he has been offered the role, the actor did give us a hint that he’s being considered.
“I’m really looking into it, properly,” he continued. “We’ll have to see.”
Adding, “Joss [Whedon] is a super talented director and has got a fantastic vision, I love what he did with the first ‘Avengers.’”
The character – the mutant son of Magneto, who has the ability to move at amazing speeds – will first be seen on the big screen in July 2014 when Evan Peters plays him in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Quicksilver’s sister, the Scarlet Witch, is also slated to appear in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
